    @frankwbrown that sounds like a great way to fit some rest into your goals. Fatigued muscles need a break.
    @mulecanter great loss

    Ugh. Stressful week, too many carbs. Hoping things will settle down next week. Had to prep for a yard sale which was today. Next is to decide on paint and redo my daughters room and finish in time for thanksgiving. Lots to do and very little time!

    Hi Guys...busy week at work and I apologize for not posting much...I've been keeping up with all of the stats and that was the most I could do.

    Was able to finally get an appointment tonight at 6:30pm to get my 2nd COVID booster, so tomorrow will be a lazy day for me...might get to finish that book...just hoping I do the fever/chills thing...just hate that feeling. Think of me you guys...

    If anyone has a suggestion for next week's group challenge or something you feel you need more work on that might inspire a challenge, please drop me a note...I'll be off and on tomorrow depending on how I feel...enjoy your weekend!

    I quit my 2nd job so I didnt have to work 51 + hours a week, now im down to 1 job and clocked in at 51 hours this week, haha. Anyways I picked up on all like 3 mini shifts this week, hence my absence. The 1 day I took off this week was my daughters birthday yesterday.

    Other news, I went to the store looking for a stool for my daughters new makeup desk and they store has a nice $800 exercise bike for 50% off. Ive wanted to buy one for forever but didnt want a cheap crappy one but also cant afford $800 to 1000, so I bot the bullet and bought me a bike for winter to ise inside when its -20°F out, sweet.

    Scale was the same as yesterday morning sadly. Would have really liked to lose that extra 0.2lbs. Now I need to lose it this week in order to stay on track. My sleep was better thankfully. Happy Saturday everyone <3

    As my scales are in Stones & pounds I really didn't think I had lost so I had a nice surprise when I converted it to pounds.🙂
    Nice loss @Pupowl I know those decimal points can make a difference but you still had a loss so celebrate .
    @leni1us again only a small gain,you don't need to apologise,we have all been there.Sometimes life takes over & you lose control.Just get back on that horse,as you say it's all in the mindset,you've got this .
    @angemarie28 Oh gosh ! I thought you would be working less hours with your new job.Guess the extra money comes in handy.Hope you enjoy your new bike & you find a stool for your daughter.
    Have a great Saturday everyone.I am painting my bedroom today,it's taking so long as it's a big room & I'm doing it on my own.
    Tonight I'm going out for a meal with 2 friends & then we are going dancing.Hoping to find a place with 70s music for a good bop.🕺

    Thank you, great loss for you too! I know it's not much, but if I manage to lose 2.2lbs/1kilo a week, I will be back where I was in January this year in time for my birthday in March! I thought that would be a fun goal to go for. It was just a little frustrating that my weight didn't move 4 days of the week this time. Hopefully these tiny misses don't happen too often.

    Well, my steps are going back down again. With the busy work, Puppy going to PT 3 times a week I end up working very late (I work from home), I start working by 6:30 and finished at 9 pm a couple of days to compensate from taking doggo to the vet. there is one thing that I will not change and that is getting up at 4:45 to put one hour of some kind of workouts, 30 min cardio, weights, HITT...whatever is in the schedule for the day.

    This also brings the dificulty of falling asleep, with the stress comes all those rushing thoughts, conversations and arguments in my head. what I do to help me is instead of focusing on the problems I have to deal with, I pick a random subject that i am not too familiar with, like beer names and start thinking of 3 names that start with A, then 3 with B, etc. I never go up to G because I am out for the night.
    I am ready to bake a cake for my grandaughte's birthday, wish me luck
    Hope you guys have a great weekend.

    Funny to read about your idea to fall asleep! I sometimes do something similar when my brain is too busy, but I make a 'shopping list' of foods I like. So A for apple, B for biscuits etc. Sometimes I do cities in the world instead. It works quite well for me too. I hope your puppy is okay. Good luck with the cake and nice loss this week!

    Steps 22 Oct: 17.772
    Good morning Shape Shifters. Not a very interesting Saturday. I got some fresh buns as my Saturday treat (still within calories of course) and a birthday card for my brother. He is celebrating next week and I often forget things like this, so I got it early when it was still on my mind. Had cat food for Tinus delivered so I don't have to worry about ordering stuff during Sinterklaas/Christmas time. It is always super busy then with packages so I rather get that sorted before. The rest of the day was pretty lazy. Happy Sunday everyone <3
