    @RockinRobyn672 I am deficient in the coordination department. It made Zumba fairly hazardous the one time I went!

    I am so inspired by everyone talking about working out but as soon as I post, I’m back to being a chair potato. 😢

    We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19

    What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.

    People say keto/LCHF isn’t sustainable. I’ve been doing it for over 5 years with amazing results!

    This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

    We are unstoppable not because we do not have failures but because we continue on despite them. - paraphrase of original quote by Beau Taplin

    It's Pancake Day today so I have made banana protein pancakes for breakfast for the week, really tasty and satisfying as they feel a bit naughty but only 130 cals each, 10g protein, 15g carbs.
    The recipe in case anyone wants to try them:
    Into a blender put
    3 ripe bananas
    110g rolled oats
    110g chocolate protein powder
    8 egg whites
    4 whole eggs
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    Blend until smooth
    Divide batter into 12 equal amounts and cook individually in a non-stick frying pan, flipping to cook both sides until golden. No oil necessary.

    @39flavours Your pancake recipe sounds delicious and healthy. I'm going to try it out. We also have a pancake day on weekends. I have a similar recipe from the Body Reset AARP guy (can't think of his name right now). My husband loves these. It's one serving of 5 pancakes for 390 calories (I double the recipe for the two of us). I'm trying to get in the same amounts of protein and fiber at every meal. I also add in some walnuts if I have them on hand, and use honey instead of maple syrup. Of course, that adds more calories. I use cooking spray.

    Protein-Punch Pancakes
    1/2 cup Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt
    1/2 tsp Baking powder
    1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
    1/2 cup Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
    1 large Egg
    1 large Egg white
    1/2 cup Rolled oats
    1/2 medium Banana

    Oh, and peanut butter is one of our weaknesses. I get the natural peanut butter that has no added sugars. It's still hard to resist. My latest trick that is working and very satisfying for me is to put a tablespoon on a piece of wheat or multigrain toast or eat a tablespoon with apple slices. But when the munchies at night hit, well, it's hard not to go all out.

    @39flavours Your peanut butter may be tasty due to the sugar content. That’s something I never considered back in “the old days” before I started reading ingredient panels!

    @quiltingjaine My peanutbutter is very tasty and it has one ingredient—peanuts.

    *waves* 55 years young 5 foot 8 inch female. I am a stay at home wife trying to lower cholesterol and minimize salt intake. Did weight watchers with success but I am needing more accurate nutrient details. Learning how to meet my caloric goals. Have never weighed daily so this will be an eye opener. Thanks for the challenge.

    Highest weight 271
    MPF Recommit weight 228 lbs
    02/20 - 220.0

    Round 215 (1st) Goal: learn

    2/20 trying to meet protien intake without going over cholesterol. 2 oz steak at breakfast with an egg and 3 ozs at dinner with roasted veggies. Was not hungry for lunch but ate junk. No exercise today and didn't meet step goal. Was "off" all day.

    2/21 220.0. anybody else feel protien goal is unreachable? Had pork rinds and tuna with mayo for breakfast. Not hungry for lunch. Bibigo pork wontons with corn and cream cheese for dinner. Met water goal, step goal and activity goal on rebounder (2 x 10 mins). Sodium over 53mg due to pork rinds and wontons. Packaged food in moderation going forward.

    2/22 219.5 ( -.5) Today is day 23 of rebounder exercising and recommiting to MPF. I have lost 8.5 pounds in this stretch. This 10 day challenge will also be my range for increasing my rebounder intensity. 2 x 10 mins will increase to 3 the next session. The weather here in Florida is creeping into the unbearable stage so outdoor walks will decrease. Pre filled menu is adequate with highest sodium product being 1 cup of cottage cheese. Still under and cholesterol is perfect. Wonderful Wednesday

    2/23 218.2 (-1.8). Tonight is leftover wonton night. Still struggling to reach full calories but I am reading articles. Did 3x rebounder but less daily activity. Love my rebounder! I do 4 songs now and that gets me over my ten minute minimum. I average 1700 "steps" per session. No evening walk. Happy to see I reached Fibre goal by having a piece of Ghirardelli dark chocolate lol. Doing Sam's Club run this weekend so will pick up protien shakes. Today I moved fitbit watch another notch. Yay Thursday!

    2/24 217.8 (-2.2) 3x rebounder not good. My thighs are very sore, but i did do this mornings session. It was blood donation day. Do this with husband usually but a mobile bus was at his office yesterday so it's a solo date for me today. Added bonus is getting my cholesterol reading without having to see my doctor! Supposed to take it relatively easy after donation so i used the blower to clear half the front yard leaves. They fall in the spring in Florida. That blower gets heavy! Will do evening walk tonight. I have been doing MFP challenge of 9000 steps in 28 days and I am proud to say I have reached minimum 9000! 2 days left then I am going to do the protien challenge. Off to Flagler Beach tomorrow for beach steps and fresh fish.

    2/25 217.2 (-2.8) Beach day! Husband had a morning meeting so I tagged along and walked a park. We usually do Daytona beach but had a restaurant recommendation in Flagler Beach. There are no accurate options on MFP for fish and chips so I chose the average option. Did not get many beach steps as this beach was narrow and had "sinky" sand. And many crazy people in the water! Getting my water and my steps this evening with a rebound session.

    2/26 217.6 (-2.4) Sunday funday! Cholesterol reading from blood donation reads 214. Still high BUT down from 233 just over a month ago when my primary told me medication would be needed. I am on enough meds for migraines and dementia that this merited my return to MFP. Next labs are April. Go Me! Not well today. Dizzy and nauseous when moving and twitchy legs when laying down. Eating rice cakes and tuna to ease tummy. Husband is enjoying pizza night lol. (Not a pizza fan myself so he has this on my off days). Absolutely no active minutes today.

    HSW: 211.6 lbs (Aug 2021)
    SW: 191.1 lbs (Oct 2022)

    Round 208 EW: 175.5 lbs (-0.5)
    Round 210 EW: 173.7 lbs (-1.8)
    Round 211 EW: 173.2 lbs (-0.5)
    Round 212 EW: 172.0 lbs (-1.2)
    Round 213 EW: 167.6 lbs (-4.4)
    Round 214 EW: 167.1 lbs (-0.5)

    My goals for this round will be the same as the last round: to not eat my children's leftovers and to eat smaller portions for dinner. I am also very sedentary so I will aim to get my heart rate above 100 bps for at least 22 minutes each day.

    Round 215 SW: 167.1 lbs

    2/21: 166.2 lbs
    My elliptical broke so I am going to struggle to reach my 22 minutes of a heart rate above 100 bps. I need to think of an alternative way to achieve that goal.

    2/22: 166.4 lbs
    Achieved my goals for the day. I really focused on walking fast yesterday and that was enough to get my heart rate up.

    2/23: 166.7 lbs
    Achieved my goals for the day.

    2/24: 166.7 lbs
    Ate within calorie limit and exercised but didn't reach 22 minutes of heart rate above 100. Going to pull apart my elliptical later and see if I can figure out how to fix it.

    2/25: 166.7 lbs
    It turns out my elliptical had a loose bolt that was causing the problem. It was an easy fix but I did have to take the whole thing apart before I realised what was wrong. I have been measuring my waist each week and in 3 weeks I've lost about 1 inch. It really does pay to take measurements so when you stall you can see that you still might be losing inches.

    2/26: 166.9 lbs
    Achieved my goals for the day. Not sure why the scale is going up but I think it is just water retention from my hormonal cycle.
