    I wanted an oreo mcflurry but I dont eat after 6pm so I said No. Anyway, I looked it up and wow they have a lot of calories even the snack size. I have decided not to eat sweets but every 3-4 weeks so I will wait because it is a trigger for me, cant have ice cream very often.

    Listening to my body. I’ve been ramping up my exercise a lot in august and today I decided to dial it back and only do a short yoga practice. I used the extra time to go for a longer morning walk instead, getting almost 6000 steps before work.

    I met up with my team for lunch. I brought some Tupperware and brought half the meal home with me for tomorrow. Bringing my own container really lowers the barrier!

    Getting in protein about 115 g a day. Really helping with my binge eating. Feelng full with the protein of about 20-30 g each meal. Yay!

    That is really impressive. What are you eating as protein?

    Saturday is my rest day, although I did some gardening. We ate breakfast and a midafternoon snack and then decided to have no carbsat dinner time. This has pretty much kept me within my calories for today: only about 10 over.

    Went to yoga class even though I really didn’t want to after a tough Monday at work. Wasn’t my best yoga practice, but I feel a little better both physically and mentally, so I can come home and do my second job

    Well it was yesterday but it was my “ reset” after vacation ( which consisted of a staycation with my daughter who I haven’t been able to see in 8 months coming to visit). We got lucky with weather and were able to eat out every night. I let myself fully partake and didn’t track. When I’ve lost weight in the past this would have been the beginning of the end of maintenance. But as I’ve done 3 other times since losing 75 pounds in the last few years after a vacation , I was ready to go back to tracking and maintenance by doing a Reset: a one day 500 calorie “ fast” day. This is a perfect way for me to get back in the proper mindset. And 1250 calories seems like a lot ( I do 1250 during the week and 1450 on weekends) after a 500 calorie day. . I know this wouldn’t be at all right for Everyone but it totally works great for me.
