Your progress and ability to find solutions to challenges is impressive and inspiring!
I’ve been busy preparing for a trip leaving this Tuesday and driving to/ from an appointment several states away. I’ve scheduled a little over two weeks for it, so I’ll have to drive just 4 hours a day on average. That will hopefully save some energy for a walk each day, to be able to get food in a store instead of gas stations if needed, and more rest breaks.
I have a “kitchen kit” with a good cutting knife and cutting board that fits in the side of a cooler bag, a set of utensils for dining in the hotel room, a small “to go” type container that has a metal base and collapsible top that doubles as a reheat-able bowl, and a small food scale that fits in the side pocket with the knife. It lets me prep food and freggies for the day’s car ride, and do some simple microwave cooking in the hotel room.
Goals for the trip:
-Daily weights (I’ll have to calibrate my travel scale and home scale tomorrow, checking the batteries today.)
-log food daily, weigh it as best I can.
-5 freggies daily (I struggle with this at home lately too)
-Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) once or twice a day to help with swelling in legs, just learned this and it seems to help. Need to make it a habit.
-visit a State, National, or Regional park each day.
-walk daily. Rest breaks at somewhere to walk the dog.
-train the dog each day too, active training and Relaxation Protocol in the hotel room and somewhere public/ a park.
You have a well laid out plan for your trip.1
Great job preparing to start week two. YouTube has some good exercise videos.
I will send a message about the results. Congrats on losing the most weight for our team!
Congrats on making it to the top three weight losers for the team!2
Enjoy your vacation!
It happens. You are doing the right thing getting right back on plan.

good morning hope your all ready for another week. I am still managing to keep on track at the moment and feel more and more in control every day and feel better in myself again. Keep looking at new clothes to buy and trying to hold on until I can fit in them. Next step after this is getting back regularly to the gym. Have a fantastic day all!3
Morning all. I've been off track a few days. Scales aren't happy but I know it's water weight too so I'm hoping it will be back down soon. Continuing fasting 18:6 and some days 20:4. Have a good week all.4
Weigh-in Day: Monday (Apr 11, 2022)
We had a busy weekend and I managed to do a lot of raking yesterday (~ 4 hrs) and weight lifting earlier in the week so finally getting up off my backside must have helped!5
Busy day again so not sure about the pool. Definitely going to get my walker this afternoon.
You can do this!
You are doing great. Write the days you want to go to the gym on your calendar and treat it as any other appointment you can’t miss.
How long have you done intermittent fasting?
Fantastic weigh in! I think any movement helps. Raking would burn lots of calories.
Tell us about your exercise. How often do you exercise? Do you schedule exercise time? How long do you exercise? What do you do for exercise? What is a type of exercise you would really like to try or add to your routine?1

*Jumping up and down* I'm here! I'm back and vacation STUNK!!!! The only thing accomplished that I did was rest. I didn't know how bad I was tired until vacation. We did absolutely NOTHING. Washington is a BEAUTIFUL state... just wished we had the opportunity to go sight seeing.
I stayed on program but did NOT exercise one bit. No step counts for me. My weight stayed the same as well.
We had our furbaby in boarding and he got kicked out on the 2nd day we were on vacation. Our friends saved the day and he stayed with them until we got back.
I'm so glad to be back with you all. Sorry I didn't check in. ♥3
