    Busy day yesterday. Got our morning walk done, then worked in the garden most of the day. Spread the rest of the soil and turned it in. Got the carrots, potatoes, and parsnips planted. Cleaned up the screened porch which was filled with garden stuff. Exhausted, so of course binged a little - but with all the exercise today came just under my calorie limit.

    Gardening is a great way to burn calories. I have a silly question. How did you plant the potatoes? Did you cut the eyes off older potatoes and use them? This will be my first time growing potatoes so I am in the process of figuring out how to do it. I am getting the pots that you have a flap to open to get the potatoes out.

    Another busy garden day - all done except for the corn and squash which can't be planted for another couple weeks.

    Took a beautiful walk by the Connecticut River this morning and got this shot of the Sun reflecting in the water.

    Saturday Weigh-In
    PW: 216
    CW: 218

    Motto:
    🏋🏾‍♀️ Don't think, just do it!!
    Eat well 🥗to Live Well 🚢✈️🧳
    H2O - Make it Flow 💦💦💦

    Daily Goals for May
    1. Calories @1650 and protein 150g.
    2. Limit Wine to the weekend, if at all.
    3. Water - Minimum of 80 ounces
    4. Exercise 6 days a week (core/strength train/cardio)
    5. Consistently hit 10k steps - Goal 20+ days.
    6. Daily reads or audible.
    7. Post work out snack
    Recap: A bit frustrated at that number on the scale but moving on. I had a good week hitting the majority of my goals (1) Slighly over 2 days. (5) 3 10k+ step days!
    I did change a couple of things that might have affected the scale negatively:
    1. The program that I am following for calories and protein strongly encourages a pre-workout and post-workout "meal" for fuel. I normally work out in a fasted state and don't eat until around 11am or noon. Wondering if I was missing an opportunity for my body to recover quicker, I implemented a post-workout fueling. It's a power/protein drink, roughly 200 calories, 23 protein, 18 carbs consumed at about 7:30am breaking my fast about 4 hours earlier.
    2. The other thing I did was implement some "meat" sticks for protein... processed food with a significant amount of sodium, had those 4 times this week (they are actually quite tasty).

    The positive things this week:
    1. Water, no day was under 80 and most were over 90! Almost to 100. So I'm guessing the sodium is causing me to retain the extra water that I consumed!!??
    2. AND... 3 days this week I went on an additional 30 minute walk.

    I also think that 216 was a fluke last Saturday as I changed the battery the next day and it jumped up to 218. :worried:
    Next week I will limit the protein sticks to no more than 2, continue with the water and play the post workout fueling by ear....

    How did you meet your best friend?

    I met my best friend at work ... we have worked together over 20 years as ER nurses... She is amazing and we do things outside of work too

    I met my bestie while forcing our boys to meet and play together. Her family had just moved two houses away and we set up the 8year olds to play. 12 years later we are going strong but the boys have moved on to different parts of their lives. Hers is in Uni; mine working ft. Going over for a visit tonight and looking forward to it.

    How did you meet your best friend?

    I met my best friend in college - our boyfriends (now husbands) were in the same fraternity. We actually didn't become best friends back then. As life goes on most of my college and high school friends have become less and less important in m life - and the tried and true are always there. She moved away a couple years ago but we do see each other every few months - we take turns visiting. Avelo airlines has a direct flight from Connecticut to Florida and many times a round trip flight is less than $100!

    Relay race for another challenge I am in and the garden (finished) kept me so busy yesterday. When dinnertime came I said I'm too exhausted to cook - we got subway, which has so much sodium, then I had pretzels, and cookies - ate all my exercise calories. Had two calories left for the day!
