Welcome new and old members.
Welcome November, 2021!
For those of us in the northmost part of the northern hemisphere, we celebrated our Thanksgiving last month. Therefore, we over the Thanksgiving "weight gain"
For those of you in the Southern hemisphere, I hope you are enjoying your warmer weather
The UAC challenge has only 3 rules.
Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes?
Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day?
Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank?
At first glance, they look very simple. From my experience these rules are applicable to anyone at any stage of this health journey (I called it "health journey" not "diet"). Whether you are just beginning this health journey, advanced in this process or just maintaining. (BTW, I've being in maintenance for the past 11 years).
I have come to realized that these are the only things that nobody in this life will do for me. Nobody can eat for me/you, exercise for me/you or track what I/you eat, lick or bite in this world. This is all about me/you, my/your health, and my usefulness to those around me! If I don't take care of my health then I cannot take care of anybody. (You are always advised to put on your mask when there is low pressure in the plane before helping your child/anybody, else both of you will/may die )
Does it mean that I will not fail? No, it is not about being perfect! But it about forming a habit. A habit that will bless me and move me forward in life, it will also bless those around me.
Therefore, as you join us in this month's UAC, you do not have to be perfect. We are not There is nothing you are going through that no one in this group has not experienced. You are not the only one out there! This is a very supportive group. We will support you as you learn these habits. Come by everyday, read encouraging, funny, and realistic posts, and post something.
If you have at most 3 pass days (pass day is a day where you could not say "Yes" to any of these 3 rules). Then you are in Winner's circle.
If you have more than 3 pass day but you were here everyday, you are in the Champion's circle.
Welcome, let's hold unto one another like the Sea Otters. Let's each other hands through this month!
"Otter groups are called rafts, and the animals famously hold hands to keep from drifting apart." (https://animals.net/sea-otter/)

November UAC members in "morph mode" A raft of sea otters. They also sometimes wrap seaweed around themselves to help stay together too (like we throw each other verbal "lifelines")

Pass Days: 0/3
Today's exercise was just a quick 20-min walk around the inside of the building at work today. After work I went to visit my granddaughter and one of my newest great-grandbabies, Ivory Rose!!
