    @lindamtuck2018 My knees are great! I continue to do the exercises that the physical therapist prescribed and have not been having any problems - I'm so happy about that because I love running and am so excited to be doing it again.

    @Cheesy567 Woohoo for the gain of lean body!!! I do my next Dexa in Oct. Eating enough protein and minimizing cuts are a great thing! Congrats!
    @Beautyofdreams In my situation at the moment I am in flee mode. Or avoidance. Writing things out yesterday helped me tremendously. It kept me out of the kitchen. Other times I think, "Eating like an A--hole because of S--t thoughts," Is how I snap myself out of whatever things are driving me to eat. Yes that is some of losing 100 with Corrine podcast teaching. Not having forbidden foods is also another way I have stopped the binge. I have to live with all these things around me so I have to turn the thoughts about the food around. Not creating drama about it is another. Just changing the thought process will change the outcome.

    Good morning all.
    Check in for 4/12:
    Steps - 15442
    Calories - 2207. Ugh. Too high.
    Exercise - started playing pickleball but pulled a hammy in my first game. Slowly walked home to keep it from getting worse. Walk was 1 hr 17 min at 2.5mph. Went on a 1 mile stroll after dinner since I was getting foody.
    To many bad snacks. 3 pieces licorice, chips, peanuts. Daughter made hot chocolate after the walk but she made mine with milk. Extra 140 calories. Hammy feels fine today but I am taking the day off and probably tomorrow, unless I get restless being inside.
    Dinner out tonight since we are driving daughter across town to vote on her union contract. I will be modifying my early calories a bit for more wriggle room.

    Not very often you have high days like this so go easy on yourself. Sorry you hurt yourself. A couple of days rest is probably a good idea.

    I am so proud of myself. I set a new lap and burn record for myself. I swam 84 laps and my total burn including my pool exercises was 718 calories. 🔥🔥🔥🔥

    Just not feeling it today. Like, seriously not. Do you ever go into a "funk"??? I'm wondering if it's "post vacation blues".

    Yesterday's workout was some light cardio with weights. Nothing great.

    Need to pull this bug out of my buttocks.

    Hey all. Back on track today. I've hit my highest weight ever now. It's time to finally do this once and for all. One day at a time!

    I believe there is post vacation blues. Every year after our trip to Newfoundland I get into a funk for about a week. Light cardio with weights is still a workout. Give yourself a few days to get back to normal life.

    You can do it. If you want i can post the weight you are at now. It would be nice next week to get credit for losing the weight you have gained.

    Steps 15,846

    I have an appointment at the passport office this morning. It is cutting it close because I need it in less than 6 weeks. I am not sure if I will have time for the pool today or tomorrow. I will go for a short walk though. My arms are sore from my swim but they are a good sore.

    Happy Thursday, Downsizers! The stock market is closed tomorrow - so today is my last work day before the long weekend - I'm the only one on the desk today - so it's going to be a crazy day. Here's my check-in:

    4/13:
    Calories: 1,161
    Exercise: 70 minutes elliptical
    Steps: 12,250

    I had a great day yesterday - I did a 6-mile jog this morning - so I'm feeling great! I will stop by this evening after the market closes...

    I hope you all have a wonderful day!
