    Coming in late today. Just gonna post some quick goals. A whole lot of crap hit the fan on Thursday and Friday and now I and the rest of my class are quarantined for the next two weeks. Oh, joy...

    So sorry to hear this. This virus affects so many ... you stay safe! That is the most important thing!

    @SERmom3 my back is not good yet, I still can't straighten up fully and everything I do is painful and slow. I'm very frustrated with it, I'm missing being able to go for a walk! Going back to osteopath tomorrow so fingers crossed.

    So sorry you are having back pains. My DIL has a lot of back pain, and needs surgery, which to me sounds so scary. She had surgery 10 yrs ago, but needs it again. I hope you start to feel better soon. I'd be like you .. walking is not only exercise for me but my therapy time!

    As I suspected, I gained weight instead of lost :/
    All I can do is move on and make this week better than the last. Bf and I haven't finished my motivation board yet anyway, so I guess I'm officially starting THIS week.

    I changed my timezone on MFP so that (hopefully) the day will roll over around 2-3 AM instead of midnight, and edited my meals to time ranges to make it easier for me. I'm going to try not to eat after 3:30/4 AM to give my body time to digest and burn off my last meal before I go to bed.

    I'm hoping these little changes will make it easier for me to track and I'll start seeing the weight come off.

    I hope you all have a great week.

      Mixed day with some positives

      For Monday, keep the focus on doing the right things. Trust the long haul.

      1900 calories: 1935. Knew I was going over but stopped before true damage was done
      Work out for 80 minutes, find the time: 38 minutes. Chose not to walk with the excuse of the chilly weather.
      Make good choices: Made good choices on food. Need to at least start an exercise walk and then decide it’s cold
      Support my bride: Easy to do but need to knock out a request today
      Eat dinner at the table, unplugged. Don’t snack on the couch: Done and done
      [/quote]

      For Tuesday, trust that doing the right things will bring results

      1800 calories:
      Work out for 80 minutes, make the time:
      Make good choices:
      Support my bride, knock out a to do:
      Eat dinner at the table and walk afterwards, both unplugged. Don’t snack on the couch:

      Weather is definitely feeling late fall. Temp was 27F (-3C) when I left house with dog this morning. Even wearing winter walking pants, my legs got chilled. Need to get out all the winter layers for walking dog. Too cloudy to see any stars. With clocks falling back an hour this weekend, won't be as dark on early walks for little while. Still, I ordered a Noxgear lighted vest to replace my old rechargeable vest since one side has a broken wire & doesn't light anymore.

        I feel just like this too. I don't want to log today, but I will not give up, I will still eat well.
        Yesterday I wanted to eat everything in sight after my back appointment. Then I didn't know what I wanted as I don't really have "treats" in the house, so picked on things. Wasted calories.

        Today I will not give up.
