Morning all. Been awhile Since I have checked in.
I absolutely love Hello Fresh and Chef plate. Have lots of coupon codes if anyone needs. Same with revive superfoods smoothies. I usually get hello fresh and chef plate once a month each.@5k_everyday_365 i wouldn’t say I’m a runner but a slow jogger. I do like to get in at least 5 km a day whether a combo or jogging/walking.

Morning!@PatriceFitnessPal it sounds like you are doing really well with your decluttering. It can be really hard to let go of things that evoke feelings and emotions.... so taking time to do this is sensible!@5k_everyday_365 I run a bit too. Not masses as I also do gym and aerial hoop/silks when it's open (currently closed so far this year due to covid) but I usually find time to do a couple of 5ks a week. Last year I built up to doing a 20k for an event.... don't think longer distances are something I will strive for often!!! I like to get out, clear my head, and then get back and get on with my day! 🤣
I'm still failing miserably at tracking!! I start off everyday tracking my breakfast....but by lunch am quite often so busy it falls by the wayside and, even if I ate an incredibly healthy lunch by Brain has a 'well you blew it today' moment because I didn't track... and the rest of the day spirals. I need to fix this. And I hope to start today (again!!!! )

@kiay131982, @lrw327 and @drollings2019 - I appreciate all your encouragement through my tedious (self-imposed) decluttering project. I’m looking forward to the day when I describe my situation as you are experiencing it now ... similar to maintenance following a weight loss 😀. If I take the same approach to this project as I did by gradually re-building my wellness and fitness habits after some neglect, my house will feel more comfortable to me. I can’t say it’s feeling good right now but I’m sticking with it a tiny bit at a time.
I’m impressed by all the runners in the group. I love to run but it’s been a long time since I’ve made a regular routine of it. I’m not sure why... When I get into a regular schedule, it clears my mind, helps me focus on my priorities and lifts my mood. Putting in my sneakers (running shoes) has always been the hardest part of my workouts. Once I pull myself away from work, I could enjoy being active all day, especially outside! I’m going to try to do a better job scheduling “fitness” into my day. @5k_everyday_365 is an inspiring MFP name to motivate me so I’ll try to channel that vision whenever I visit the group! It sounds as though you have an active job so you probably don’t need to run in days you’re tired from the warehouse but good for you for challenging yourself. When I was a waitress, I had to put my legs up to get my circulation going after a tough day but still liked exercise for the stress relief so I can understand wanting to run after a tough work day.
Congratulations on your fantastic progress @tdsimoes67! If you find the rate slowing down as you get closer to your goal weight, try not to get discouraged. It’s a good sign but it can be tough psychologically in my experience. I’m over the hump of feeling disappointed and now I’m focused on maintaining a steady level of nutrition and fitness that feels comfortable ... and practical. I’d still like to improve my fitness but my goal is now the end of 2021 instead of sooner.@bumpbreakcar - Your goals seem really balanced ... Nice! The weather has not worked out well for rowing on days when it fits with my work schedule so I feel as though I’m paying for a program I’m not using, too. Better late than never!! I’m going to have to wake up earlier and row before work in days the weather cooperates... and also get out there in the rain, if it’s not terrible. Windy days can be dangerous so I’ll continue to avoid those and the weather will be more consistent soon. I’m just a bit impatient because our soccer game was also canceled this week. The league didn’t remember to turn on the lights at the field. They mixed up our teams this year to ensure enough women are balanced across the teams so it was nice to meet my teammates and kick the ball around during warm up. Patience ...@ladychr0nic - Sometimes it can be surprising to see the calories from a bad day dispersed across the week and you have the right attitude! One birthday celebration or a short vacation won’t make a big difference if most days are balanced nutrition-wise ... onward!
Thanks so much for checking in, even on such a busy day, @renaegry. It’s always great to hear from you and I’m glad you’re feeling in track!
Welcome @Kate3479 - I don’t consciously practice Intermittent Fasting (IF) but I kind of naturally eat that way. Most meals are from 8am-6:30pm now because daylight savings time seems to take time to naturally adjust to ... but, typically, I eat between 10 or 11am and 6:30pm and feel better.
