    So cool! I bought home some moose meat from Newfoundland. I don’t like the taste of it but my son and husband do. I am sure you got intensity minutes even though they were not recorded.

    @rlaskey2
    That sure creates problems. I hope you have a better week.

    Yuck! Spiders are not my favourite thing. Couple of weeks ago I found a spider in my water bottle. Put the bottle through the dishwasher twice but still can’t bring myself to use it. Is this type of spider dangerous?

    Chips are a killer with me too. I have a small bag every night otherwise I will go crazy with food.

    @Beautyofdreams
    Lack of sleep is bad for me. If I am not sleeping well I have trouble with the binge eating.

    @rwood566
    Awesome steps! Hope things settle today.

    @Pippin20206
    Great strategy to avoid eating the junk.

    @Poobah1972
    Awesome loss! I recently bought a recliner that helps manage the back pain. If you don’t find relief with the sports therapist ask to see aback specialist. I am being seen at the spine centre here in London. I am sure they have something like that in Sudbury/North Bay (know you are in Northern Ontario) They have several types of back specialist there. Right now I am getting injections in my back.

    Sunday check in

    Steps ✅
    Calories ✅
    Track ✅
    123/500 zone minutes

    Had a really good swim yesterday followed by 34 minutes of cardio/legs. I ended up having 2 packets of rockets. They are not bad on calories but lots of sugar. I am getting my Covid booster this afternoon so I will get a little extra exercise as I have to walk there and back.

    Happy Monday!

    I don’t like charging my Fitbit as I feel like the steps don’t count. 😂


    just got back from our walk 6.63 miles and I feel great :)

    Awesome walk!

    I just changed my profile pic to remind myself that I did this before and I can do it again. Pity the After photo is 6 years go. Maybe I should do a Before/After/Before to show my current state lol

    Good evening everyone. Welcome to November. I hope you are ready for the last 2 months.

    Check in for 11/1:
    Steps - 6475. Mostly on my walk tonight.
    Calories - 1630. Pushed away my plate at lunch and dinner with food still on it. Small win.
    Exercise - 1.75 mile walk untimed. It was cold but I enjoyed it.

    I lost 8.4 lbs in October. Lowest amount in a very long time. Hopefully that means I am getting close to the bottom.
    I noticed my right upper arm is appearing more full as well as my underarm and side boob. I didn't notice swelling on my first two shots, mainly because I was 100 lbs heavier. I am going to see if the swelling goes down over the next week. If not then I will contact my dr.
