    @cschmitz110515 - Happy Birthday tomorrow, sounds like you have a great evening planned. Beautiful scenery.
    Our leaves are mostly on the ground now and it is looking cold and barren.

    @zizzybumble - a new kitchen is very exciting.

    @SERmom3 - you’re doing well with the no chips!

    Saturday 10 October

    Log 😊 best guess
    Stay in the green ⚠️ Probably not but the meal was worth it. I’ll try to remember that when I see the result on the scales!
    5 fruit and veg 😊
    Water 😊
    Fitbit exercise goals. 😊
    Happy Scale weight trend ⬇️ 0.4 kg lost in last 7 days 😊


    It will be guess work for logging tonight’s meal and staying in the green. I’ve ordered take away from the local restaurant (I want to support a local business that relies heavily on the tourist trade (people travel long distances to eat here). I couldn’t normally afford their prices but it’s a special takeaway menu for locals. I’m eating a light breakfast and lunch so hoping things balance out 😊

    Hope you all have a good weekend 🐝

    Happy Scale weight trend ⬇️ 0.1kg lost in last 7 days 😊 Weight is up today, hopefully just a spike from sodium in yesterday’s meal. It could also be true gain but the meal was worth it!

    Good weekend health wise in spite of the weather. Last race if the year this Sunday... assuming weather or virus doesn’t cancel it again. Need to stay hyper focused on food, training and rest.
    Two of my co-workers got COVID last week. One completely asymptomatic the other felt pretty darn sick but he was feeling better as of the weekend... Happy to say we have been on different campuses last two weeks so I think I’m probably ok.

    Monday goals
    Stay green
    No beer
    No sweets
    Fruit and vegetables for snacks
    Zwift ride... do the Zwift academy if get home from work at decent hour

    @mytime6630 - I’m finding it a struggle as well. I think logging consistently and posting goals is helping me though.

    @SERmom3 - I agree with you, I need to add in some exercise to see a movement on the scale.

    @teigansdad - isn’t it odd how this virus affects some so much more than others. There doesn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason to it and to me that is the scary part.

    @ZizzyBumble - it’s still a lost even though it stalled

    @WellingTX - you can do it, keep posting and you’ll get past your hard spot.

    Yesterday was a challenging work day. I didn't react very well to it and to some degree self-medicated with chocolate and wine, which broke my 'no drinking at home on a week night' October rule. It didn't help that I was having a call with my friend in the evening, which I tend to accompany with wine so it's a big deal not to, and she texted me saying 'looking forward to chatting...with a glass of wine!!!'. Kind of gave me the excuse I needed to break the rule.

    Oh well, there is no point in beating myself up about it now, I just need to focus my efforts on sticking to the rule from now on. I did think yesterday, that while I'm still sorting myself out emotions wise - learning to cope better with stress and the challenges we're all facing at the moment - I should probably (a) be kind to myself when I slip up (b) focus my effort on the causes (i.e. the poor coping mechanisms that lead me to slip up) rather than the slip ups themselves. Obviously I want to avoid slip ups, but it feels like focusing on the triggers rather than what the triggers lead to should probably be my core focus. So I think I may shift my attention a little bit.

    In terms of that, I tried something new yesterday which was early in the evening, sitting down with some paper and actually writing down the things that were bugging me. I often just have a 'negative feeling' in the evening resulting from a few different things and it's difficult to get rid of it. But I sat down and reflected and managed to figure out, and write down the things that were bugging me. I then wrote down (a) why these things weren't so bad - or a more positive way to look at the things (b) actions I can take about them. Doing this made me feel a lot better and calmer. I'm going to try this again - maybe even daily if I need to - and hopefully that will help a bit with dealing with things!

    Anyway, yesterday's goals:
    Today's goals:

    - Track all food and drink :)
    - Be in the green >:)
    - 5 fruit & veg :)
    - No alcohol >:)

    I have a question. What do you guys eat for healthy snacks? On some days, I have calories left over, and could do with a snack, but I don't always know what to eat. I need ideas for snacks that are 100-200 calories that are tasty enough to be enjoyable, but not tasty enough that I'll scoff them all if left alone in the house with them... Any thoughts? (I have thought of fruit already but I do get plenty of fruit already so really looking for something different).
