What worked for you today?

    Becoming one, and at peace, with my neglected foam roller. Also, taking a "rest rest" day instead of an "active rest" day.

    It helped that it rained the entire time though 😐

    Adding a couple ounces of plain nonfat Greek yogurt to my oats really worked this morning! The 2 ounces of blueberries weren't bad either. :) It kept me filled up nicely till lunch.

    Eating chickpeas (prepared with courgette/zucchini, garlic and parsley) instead of potatoes or pasta for dinner last night.

    nope didn't do good at 2nd night supper campmeeting either. Got up this morning trying to find something to wear to work and saw this dress that 2 or 3 weeks ago i put on and hips were to tight. The way i ate last two days i thought it would never fit but i remembered i lost inches in my hips so i tried it on and YES!! it fit great!!! Maybe tonight i be inspired to do better. So getting into something that i couldn't wear just a few weeks ago worked to give me a better mind set this morning.

    I skipped the (assisted) pull up bar and did push presses and kettlebell snatches. I must have injured my shoulder in a weird spot so I can’t do my weekly pull ups. I chose to do something else so that I can heal.

    Today, what worked for me was taking a measured amount of spelt flour and making leavened flatbread with it, with pieces scored so I had automatic 100 calorie sections. Then I had some with green soup and it was amazing. It worked well for portion control. Another thing that worked was listening to a really inspiring podcast about weight loss theory as it rekindled my interest and gave me a boost of motivation.

    What worked for me today was planning my meals and really watching the chart in the food diary, to stay in balance with the carbs, proteins and fats. I feel so good about it!

    Today I completed day 3 of Walkfit, and logging, even when I know my meals and snacks aren't the healthiest but I am feeling like I am taking baby steps, and moving forward. I have a dog and work from home right now, so I have 4 very important walk breaks for Storm's potty breaks. We take a walk every morning, lunch, after work and before bed. These walks have been about a half mile and really at a leisurely pace. I knew since I was already doing this walks I could make at least one of them a workout. I also have physical limitations (I have had a back fusion about 5 years ago, and I have permanent damage to both of my sciatic nerves. I have also had 3 surgeries on my right shoulder for rotator cuff tears, and carpal tunnel surgery on both wrists). As a result doing full tilt workouts were not working for me. I can't do even my walkfit app every day but I am doing every other day right now.

    Planning ahead, preparing food for salads, logging and keeping active as possible. I'm also reading a book by Allen Carr: Good Sugar Bad Sugar. It's been a wake up call for me and how sugar works in your body. It's available on Amazon.
