    Saturday check in

    ✅ Steps
    ❌ Sleep
    ✅ Exercise
    ❌ Reminders 7/8

    Busy day yesterday so lots of steps. I think I might remove sleep from my goals as I am doing everything I can to achieve good sleep and I feel like it is not a smart goal anymore. I am going for a swim and workout in a half an hour. I am going for a short walk with a friend after my swim. Going to visit my son for his birthday and the grandkids are coming over later. A busy day!

    It’s two days until we are leaving for the cottage. I am thinking a lot how I will handle food, logging, etc. I know the biggest thing is I need to be mindful of my serving sizes and snack food. It’s only 4 days so a blip in the big picture.

    @lindamtuck2018 and @Beautyofdreams thanks for the support! I’m trying my hardest to stay safe: lots of vitamins, rest, fruits/veggies, masks galore…

    I’m sorry to hear that about your sister’s school. I know that must be so frustrating and scary that they can’t even have safety protocols in place. I hope she stays safe as well!!

    I’m glad the covid test was negative!! I know that was a relief. “Fortunately” it was just food poisoning - even though that’s awful, too! Stay safe and healthy!

    8/14
    Tracked Yes
    Under Calorie Yes
    Water 80oz
    Steps 7006

    We had an absolute blast at the fair yesterday! The kids loved the midway and the rides. We got to walk through buildings and see animals, watch a wild encounters show and a bike trick show, and play bingo! Food went great for myself. We were so busy the whole time, coupled with the fact that I didn't want anything from the stand where we fed the kids lunch, it was after 4pm the first time I checked the time and I still hadn't broken my fast haha. The crazy thing was, I didn't even feel hungry at that point. I decided to get a fresh squeezed lemonade, I ended up eating 4 of my daughters french fries later, and then had snacks from the snack bag in the car on the way home, and also once we got home. I don't even regret not getting anything at the fair, my husband tried enough stuff for both of us haha. I guess I was more focused on the fun than the food!

    @minstrelofsarcasm great pleasure to meet you!

    Good afternoon from a busy Sunday afternoon. As per usual, weekends are so busy, I feel bad I don't get around here to often. But it doesn't mean I haven't been working. 😬

    Yesterday was my Son's birthday (25th), and we all had a good time, and I didn't even over eat! Thank goodness for Keto Cheese cake! :) 😃

    I woke up at 3:00am Saturday morning with gout starting to flare up a little in my right foot, but thankfully an ice pack, anti-inflams, and a Tensor Bandage was enough to turn the tide by this morning. It appears I may need to up my allopurinol to the highest dose, which I sort of knew already as per blood tests. No rush, I've pushed thing a little harder in general this week or 2, and I could be wrong but it looks like I'm on track for a good showing on the scale tomorrow. I'm pretty sure high Calorie burns and weight loss also push my uric acid levels up leading to gout. Anyway, on with the story. 😉

    Both Lynn and I had a fantastic sleep last night. It was refreshingly cool outside, and I guess it was just what the doctor ordered. I nailed 8.5 hours sleep with no drugs in site and a sleep score of 88. HELL YEAH! 🥳

    And being a fast Sunday (around our 30th consecutive) we just got up and headed to the Lake for a Walk on the board walk... And decided to spice it up by taking the long way around back to the car. Which involved many more hills to climb and with it a decent burn. 🔥🔥

    Also had an amazing visit with my best friend and his Wife... Man I love those people. This guy will be my best man in a years time, and I really hate that I haven't got to see them much this last few years. 🤗

    And that's about it... Weigh in tomorrow morning. What will the numbers be? 🤔😃

    Sounds like so much fun! You get fun, family time and exercise walking around. Great job with the eating.

    Congrats @MSWarrior7088 , @888Angie888 @Beautyofdreams for being our top 3 weight loss losers .... A huge accomplishment :)

    I second this! Also, congrats Downsizers for being in the leaderboard!
