    Good morning WaistAways!

    PW: 175
    CW: 174

    Still a loss from last week, although I saw as low as 173 this week, ugh, lol.

    I've been buckling down a lot more this week than last week, and I've got a solid plan for next week. Naturally filling foods (greek yogurt with oats, chicken breast) and allowing my protein to be anywhere from 80-100 seems to be working more than using a ton of protein supplements (although oh yeah ONE bars are great) to hit 100 or more. For now.

    Busy day ahead, going to the zoo for breakfast, and they're going to feed the animals while we eat our food and walk around, and then dance choreo at the gym, followed by a day of hard cleaning and tik tok grinder salad sandwiches. :yum:

    Have a great day, everyone!

    @lauren_989 good job with the race! Was it windy? A runway is a big open field and the wind can come whipping through and hit pretty hard.
    We've got a storm brewing here now, it's going to be 50km/h gusts with snow this evening. Friends invited us over for dinner but it's a half hour drive and it's just not worth the risk on the roads.

    I'm keeping busy with home projects and cleaning so I stay out of the kitchen but hubby has decided to bake oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and corn bread muffins. I must resist!

    Congrats on the NSV @carlsoda! You're right that the scale does not tell the whole story.

    @lauren_989 I did a 5k in the Toronto Zoo once. It was great! The zoo layout had a surprising amount of stairs and the lure of stopping to watch the zebras almost won over my desire for a certain finish time. The inclusion of zoo passes means you can leisurely return to the exhibits you want after the race.

    @jugar I'm glad you were able to find a way to communicate and connect with your dad. Tons of hugs your way.

    @zankash23 congrats on the rowing machine! So jealous. I would love to have the space in my house to have one of those. It's such a good overall workout.

    @eggfreak it's good to see you. Hope you're doing well.

    @IDebraK and @lauren_989
    What lovely pictures of strong ladies celebrating their amazing physical feats.
    The excitement of a race is great.
    @IDebraK so great you could encourage your boss to join you, and @lauren_989 love that you've got your sights set on another race with your husband.
    Being active with others is so much better in my opinion!
    Just like @jugar bonding with her dad through the power of movement... such great stories to catch up on this morning!

    So great catching up on your news. Amazing races, new exercise equipment, travels, connecting with others through movement and just plain relaxing and listening to your bodies.

    Our trip to NC was exhausting! I know it will sorta soon be over and there is hope for less stressful day to day. Not sure I have ever been this exhausted physically and mentally. I’m not sleeping well which I’m sure is contributing. Good news I am stress Not Eating. I mean I am nourishing my body, but I have very little appetite. So maybe I’ll make it back to where I was when this all started a year ago.

    Son has a hopeful 🤞🏼interview Friday but that is our closing so we set up movers to put his stuff in a storage unit until he knows what is next and will go stay with a friend. Essentially he is temporarily homeless. 😩He didn’t even know what to write for his mail forwarding order. We ran out of room for trash, our older car that he has wouldn’t start. I got a crack in my windshield driving home and worked my butt off cleaning out the house.

    Closing on NC house this Friday. New house on April 18th. Then moving.

    Nice losses I’m seeing. Keep it up. @PlaneMonkey loved the quotes from the podcast. Talk to you soon. ❤️

    So closing on NC house this Friday. New house on
