Fantastic Frenzied Frantic February - Accountability Thread

Went a little overboard with the naming there but I'm hoping to boost myself (and others who are struggling) a bit extra this month.

Concept for newcomers: tell us your goals, check in weekly (or daily if you like), share your triumphs and setbacks, give/get some support in this great community.

ME:
30y * 5'9" * BMI: 22 * Weight goal: 63kg (138,89lbs)

FEB GOALS
  1. Traditional "Tour Mineral" = No alcohol this month
  2. Since I can't seem to control portions, food needs to be optimum this month: very simple dinners consisting mainly of cottage cheese with fruit, or meat with basic veggies and zero additions. And for the love of everything: cut back on carbs!
  3. Stop buying dates and nuts. Got in the habit of visiting the weekly market because I so love fresh dates and I deluded myself by saying "But they have lots of fiber and are low glycemic index" -> BS woman, they are still clumps of delicious sugar. No more.

MEASUREMENTS
Stomach: 84cm (33,07")
Waist: 76cm (29,92")
Belly/Upperhips: 92cm (36,22")
Hips: 100cm (39,37')
Thighs: 59cm (23,23")

WEIGHT
Start weight: 68,3kg (150,58lb) (7 day average)

    Allright; I've not been eating well this weekend, no regrets there as it was socializing with the family on Saturday (Pizza and probably a whole tube of Pringles) and hard work redecorating on Sunday (linguini carbonara). Two consecutive days of comfort foods but that doesn't justify the gain of almost 2 kg (4 pounds). I guess it is water weight also as I'm feeling so bloated I had to put my wedding ring on another finger.
    Plan: not let it get to me and restart with my usual foods as of now. And not let the next weekend get in the way :smiley:

    As for the goals:

    1. check
    2. certainly no check - but main goal for this week
    3. check
    4. well, we still had 2 beers left in the fridge and after the hard work on Sunday, we gulped them down and we plan to have March 1st sober as well to make up for it. :innocent:

    02/10

    I'm done with the antibiotics and I am starting to clear up. OMG, it was horrendous.
    My focus for this week is to clear my system (take lots of fluids) and get through the work week (auditors). I started the kettlebell in the morning. It's quick so I think I can keep up.
    Alright, chin up!

    2/3 - 138.6 - Sick as a dog, I went to urgent care last Thursday and they thought bronchitis... but I don't think so, I've barely been able to eat anything for a week. Spent the wknd in bed. Guess I'm going back tomorrow if I don't get some relief. On the upside - I've never lost so much weight so fast in my life.

    Goal 1: Continue to make sure I'm getting in 5-7 a day.
    Goal 2: Lift 3 days a week and pole 1 day a week
    Goal 3: Meet calorie goal 90% of the time
    Goal 4: Be better at eating mindfully
    Goal 5: Don't beat myself up if everything does not go as planned. Some weeks I won't be able to make all of the workouts I want and some days I may go over my calorie goal. It is okay.

    GW: 123 lb

    2/4: 127 lb
    (Better than the 131 I saw on the scale yesterday!) That’s what happens post-Super Bowl 😩
    I’ve been fighting some sort of cold the past week or so, and believe I am losing. Fatigue/general aches/headache over the weekend into Monday. Today, coughing (the congested sort), fatigue, headache. Not enough to truly say I’m sick, but enough to generally feel miserable. And to make bad decisions...like eating too many semi-sweet morsels 🙊
    I have not run since Friday.
