    That is a win to me. Just curious about the candy and keto. Is it because of sugar that you can’t eat candy? I find keto very intriguing. I know if I am in a funk exercising always boosts my mood.

    Yes, it's the sugar (carbs) in the candy that the keto diet doesn't allow. However, once you have been on keto awhile and are considered "fat adapted" (your body burns fat for fuel instead of glucose), then some people are able to have what's considered a "carb-up" and bounce back to a fat burning state the next day. ;)

    Weigh-in Thursday
    PW: 105.4kg
    CW: 105.5kg


    I had an awesome week food wise but using my home scale instead of my mum's it's saying I've put on 100g. My scale is crap so I might need to ask Santa for an upgrade. Who am I? LOL

    I mean it could also be correct, I was salt heavy just before bed (stupid move considering weigh-in was the next morning and I know what sodium does) so I've just marked out 200ml increments on water bottle to keep me in check and try to flush it out.

    Not going to let this get to me, I'll just keep going and see what the numbers are next week.

    Long day today... Didn't manage to fit in a sleep, just a lay down. lol

    Workout ran long... But work out happened.

    Geeky weight lifting news of the day. I totally nailed a full 10 reps all by myself pushing the 80 Pound dumbbells in the first set. So yeah baby, maybe this old dog isn't done yet. Next week 85 Pounds! 💪🤓👍

    Generally another very successful workout. (Getting stronger, rocky tune in the background yo!) 😎

    I'm still sore I still have a real tight right *kitten* cheek with on and off again calve.. But its sticking more to my right leg then anything now. And it doesn't hurt as much this week while I'm at work then it did last week. Some progress is better then no progress Right?

    I love you guys, hope to be back paying more attention to everyone some time in the future.

    Peace out! 😎🥰💗🤗

    No echo cardio-gram today... Left my phone upstairs! :P But my burn sort of normalized today... I'll be curious to see if my heart rate improved or something?

    @aussie_girl_del_runner_5
    Sounds like the combination of a different scale and sodium caused the small jump on the scale. Don’t think about it just push forward to a new week.

    @Poobah1972
    Sounds like you are making great progress.

    @rwood566
    A lazy day sounds good especially when it is hot.

    @Pippin20206
    I hope you are have a great holiday.

    Wednesday check in

    Steps ❌
    Calories ✅
    Track ✅
    280/500 zone minutes

    Yesterday I didn’t really do much. Pushed myself to get a few small things done. I am feeling better today just have a headache and not a lot of energy. I am going to the pool but I don’t think it will be 50 to 60 minutes of exercise. Maybe a few laps and some stretching. 🙆‍♀️ I also have to get a few things done around the apartment today.

    Have a great Thursday!

    Weigh Day Thursday
    CW: 226.2
    PW: 225.0

    I need to come up with a way to work some routine?...motivation?...habits?...goals?...something? to get things back to moving in the right direction consistently. I have been just bouncing up and down since July. I know it can be done. On a positive note, I am 27 pounds lighter than I was at this time last year.😀

    It's almost here. My husband talked me into buying a bikini for this trip and I am just crossing my fingers that I will be confident enough to wear it.
