    Yes x3.
    This week I’m focusing on more intentional strength workouts. I’ve been doing the bare minimum for exercise the past while and it’s time to step it up a little.

    My one thing I"m focused on is getting my move points in everyday. I know I'll probably end up breaking a streak next week when we travel to the east coast. Hard to get enough movement in when you're sitting on a plane for 6 hours.

    Tuesday March 22

    My focus this week is to do more pre-tracking and then keep to that plan. Things are feeling a bit too spontaneous right now, and the first thing that fails is my protein intake.

    My Apple Watch prompted me to increase my “Move Calories Burned” target and I had a moment tonight wondering if I was going to make it. 😥 Success! But I will need to get my exercise minutes in earlier in the day which is a change I have needed to make for a while 💡

    I am glad I continued posting for March. I was planning on just dropping out and rejoining in April, but that is also a pattern I have developed since the first of the year of dropping out when disqualified.

    But staying has helped me keep thinking in the back of my head about posting and tracking which plays a role in future meal planning. So I am glad I stayed because it's helping me become more mindful of making healthier decisions :)

    Way over pass days in my learning month
    Exercise: 20 minutes walk, 30 minutes stretch
    Tracking: Tracked everything, but lots of estimates
    Calories: Over by 100, but down 0.8 pounds, so I think that maybe I was overestimating

    I really like the idea of focusing on 1 thing at a time. That is somewhat what I have been working on this learning month. First working on tracking EVERYthing, which has been definitely a learning process. My next step is meant to be to focus on eating within my revised, higher goal to see what that does with my weight loss. I haven't done so well at that. I think what I have been learning instead is how to track imperfectly and plan around takeout and treats - we've had a lot of both of those, and to be honest it's not going to stop. So I need to figure out how to not go "hog wild" with those things but just fit them in. I think I am learning I can fit them in if I can moderate. Last night I ate 1 hamentashen cookie and really wanted another and walked away - 1 is enough.

    I've also figured out a little hack for takeout - half portion, add cauliflower. I have done that twice now with burritos - order as a burrito bowl with no rice, then eat half with cauliflower rice. Last night I did that with Mediterranean beef stew - ate half with added cauliflower and it was delicious. Bonus is I get to eat it twice!

    Thanks @Mrs_Hoffer - glad it helps!
    Thank you @donna25trinity :)

    The way I think of it is “What will make the biggest difference right now?”

    Eating fewer calories - yes, but then I dig deeper…which foods or situations or attitudes are keeping me from doing that easily.

    This week I decided that since I’ve been tracking for over 5 years, I got in the “must eat everything I’ve weighed” mode.

    And I knew I was only eating about 5-10% too many calories. So I’m focusing this week on stopping eating when I’m done not when plate/bowl is empty. Then I can weigh what I didn’t eat or just leave it tracked to give myself an edge in losing a couple pounds.

    So far, so good.
