    30 days!!!

    1:40 hike in hills poppies! listened to music!
    11.2K steps

    Same weight beginning & end of month & trend wt. (went down slightly the back up slightly)

    2,122 cals/day eaten
    1,614 resting energy + 669 active energy = 2,283 cals out

    Should have been 161 cal deficit per day
    Or 1.4 lb loss, but I maintained

    SO I noticed my husbands watch thought out huge hike awhile back burned 800 cals & mine said 1,000.

    So I multiplied 669 x .8 x 30 days = 2149

    SO Looks like I hit it just right (eating less than burned) & for the next month I’ll aim for .8 x exercise calories + my resting!

    As the weather gets warmer, I'll disappear more. I just need to be outside, y'all 🤷🏾‍♀️ So, as this past week of frantic catching up with posting attests, I can't promise reliability while @RangerRickL is in Costa Rica! It sounds like a lovely time and I'm sure UACers will do our best to fill the gap.

    Here's my late entry...

    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? YES | Theresa Depasquale's 90-Day Workout Program (37), Dancing (18), Stretching (20) TOTAL: 75 min
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? YES | *Base + 386
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? YES
    NOTE: Stretching counted as half the calories

    Personal Bonus: Did I meet my protein macro for the day (40%)? NO| 26%
    Personal Bonus: Did I meet my fiber micro for the day (35g)?YES | 50g
    Pass Days Used: (APR01)

    Exercise: No
    Calories: No
    Tracked: No
    Pass days: 5/3 :(

    @Hulya_79 Is there anyway I/we can help?

    Ignore if not applicable:
    It took me awhile to build the smaller habits to be able to meet the UAC goals.
    I recommend taking a gentle & caring approach as you do so.
    I began with tracking.
    Which led to success with calories. (Remember YOU set the calorie goal - I set mine pretty high & was willing to lose more slowly over a longer period of time in order to be more comfortable.)
    I began walking a short distance, then did it twice a day. And then lengthened distances. Then collapsed it to one long walk.

    Sometimes breaking things down & giving ourselves The Gift of Time makes all the difference.

    Thank you @MadisonMolly2017 for asking. Actually, It is hard to stay on track recently as I am so busy and distracted.
    My grandma in intensive care because of cerebral bleeding for 20 days, I had overnight guest for two days and also it is Ramadan month for us ( fasting month for Muslims), I cook nice meals to celebrate and motivate my kids patience daily.
    I couldn’t post since Wednesday but I am tracking my food intake anyway.
    I will pass the rest of April too. Hopefully I will have a fresh beginning in May.
