    @snowshoe072 When I read about the guitar playing for the fingers and then, 'I hope the scale starts to go in the right direction", initially I thought you were playing scales.

    My calorie rule for January UAC
    Defining, for myself more than anything, what is the definition of my daily calorie goal. For Oct and Nov, I used 1430 and not eating back exercise. December, I raised that to 1480 with no additional calories for exercise. For January, I am going to try a blended rule; either Food calories under 1480, or Net calories (ie Food minus exercise) under 1200. So, if my exercise burns less than 280 on a given day, there is no added calories. BUT, if I exercise more, I have the option additional food OR if I overeat, I have the option of exercising more to not use a pass day. This flexibility was not something I allowed in my previous rounds. Once I exceeded my goal calories, regardless of my exercise burn. Also, I am defining that I am using the MFP estimate for the caloric burn from exercise. I know I could get different numbers elsewhere, but I am going to use only the one source – good or bad.

    Today was the last day of the Christmas holidays for me...and one child went back homeschooling from today. Not reeeeally looking forward to work tomorrow, I’ve done nothing for two weeks and now I’ll be working and homeschooling...sigh. But...today I have three yeses, my exercise was 20 minutes on the exercise bike ride and a walk in the rain (with no crutches again - I think I may be able to hand them back soon!).

    @Katiecan2021 Hope ur 1st day of work and home schooling wasn't too bad. Its def hard to get back in the swing of things wen u hve had time off.

    Uh oh- pass #2. I went over by 50 calories because I didn’t read a label carefully and I didn’t pre log.
    Rest day so I did a 45 minute yoga.

    I do not eat back my calories but I factor my activity into my base calorie number. I eat to fuel workouts because I love working out, I don’t exercise to absorb extra calories.

    @lalabank im so impressed that 45min of yoga is considered ur rest day. Well done!
