    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes, tried a new YouTube channel Senior Fitness with Meredith. I tried a seated one.
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? No. Birthday celebration for my granddaughter who is turning 4.
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes

    1 pass day used.
    Made some veggie soup for lunch this week.

    Congratulations to all the winners for April. Welcome to the new month.

    Strength work tai chi meditation all done.
    Tracked logged let’s do this in May! Welcome new and returning UAC’ers best of luck this month

    Way to get it done Kate! Keep meaning to ask you — how did you get started with Tai Chi? A class or are there videos to help one start out? It looks like such excellent exercise for balance. @snowshoe072

    Today was a super active day. An 8 mile run this morning. Weeding. A 1.6 mile slow walk this afternoon to make sure my legs still worked. Pre logged so tracking complete. A small cut today on calories goal met.

    Congrats to all the winners from April. It’s definitely not as easy as it might first appear. Keeping track of the folks who qualified last month was a real eye opener on just how difficult. 15 winners out of about 50 folks who joined and 40 or so who started. 😳👏😳

    Let’s have fun this month and enjoy every day for how it plays.

    Well done on a super day today bON! That was quite a drop in the number of people joined to those who started, and then those who finished. It felt very “slim” there at the end of April. Quietest month since I joined I think. But lots of activity on here today starting out May so perhaps it will be a successful month for many. @SummerSkier

    ✅ Exercise 11.6 km walk; gardening: spring clean up in the perennial beds (it is finally warm enough to remove the protective dead matter) 🌱🌱🌱 Lots of green shoots starting to emerge. Goodness I am glad it is spring (I know I have mentioned this many times —
    bear with me. 🥰
    ✅ Tracked it all: dinner of whole wheat pasta with homemade tomato sauce and lean beef meatballs sure was a high calorie meal 🥸 Good thing it was so delicious and filling.
    ✅ Calories under deficit allocation: working hard this month to refrain from eating my exercise calories, if possible. I will not go hungry, which means making good choices, particularly for veggies, fibre, and protein.

    Wishing everyone a very good month of success ahead. 🌟
