    Have been neglecting myself while giving my all at work and to family. Time to REFOCUS:

    J4T (Wednesday)

    1. Stick to my pre-logged breakfast, lunch and snacks at work.
    2. 8 glasses of water
    3. No added sugar today
    4. Stop beating myself up. Be kinder to myself inside my head.
    5. Come up with a daily affirmation.

    Have a great day! Feels great to be back and focused!

    yesterday 10/13
    1. continue low carb :)
    2. watch calories, and log every bite :) Logged every bite, but WAY overate. Just really hungry, so ended up with popcorn, which is loaded with carbs
    3. ellipitical or walking tonite :) walked 4.75 miles!
    4. remember water!!!! Need at least 8 glasses :/ Don't know why I have so much trouble getting in my water


    JFT, 10/14
    1. record every bite
    2. Can't walk tonite, but try and get on the ellipitical
    3. REMEMBER WATER


    Water is the hardest thing for me to remember to do. Do any of you have this problem? I've tried keeping a glass next to me while working, and at the end of the day, the glass is still full. So I end up gulping water before bed, which is not good because then I have to get up during the nite :/

    i got nothin' BUT, my mom had a trick for remembering to drink water..... she stayed at home, so if you work outside the home, you'd have to modify... but this is what she has done:

    she lines up 10 or so pennies on ONE side of the windowsill in the kitchen (or wherever you go often). with each glass of water, she'd move a penny over to the other side. that was her visual cue to drink throughout the day. bottoms up! :)

    I've lost 87 lbs. and maintained wi about a 4 lb range for five months. 3 days/wk strength training, 10k steps/day plus power walks 2-3x/wk. Seems harder of late to get to my workouts and more cravings to deal with - not sure why. Found this thread and this idea JFT seems like it could be just what I need right now. Thank you!
    JFT (tomorrow) I will keep my carbs in line, get to my workout, get in 10k steps.

    Challenging day. Noticed that some of us post our goals the night before & I'm going to try it out for a week to see if it helps w/motivation.
    JFT (Sunday)
    I will Pretrack healthy choices.

    I post the night before most of the time because if I don't I usually don't have time til late in the day.

    One word of caution, it's easy to just forget that you had goals. I check in when I log my food to re read my goals a couple times a day.




    Very good points Bri-I've copied & pasted my goals for the next day (a few times) on my calendar on my iPhone so it pops up the next AM where I will reread them & hopefully it'll reinforce my daily commitment. Thank you ☺️

    JFT
    I started slipping into old habits tonight. The only things I think were off would be the fact that I didn't workout & I didn't have veggies to eat while prepping dinner. Tomorrow I'll get back on track!

    Get in early walk.
    Finish some projects I committed to doing.
    Read/listen to something inspirational.
    Clean house.
    Preplan birthday dinner for husband.
    Get more rest-struggling w/this.
    Get back to drinking 9 cups of water.

    Have a great night all!

    JFT Tuesday
    - finish mowing and clean mower
    - alter dress for friends wedding this Saturday. I only have one option and it looks like a sack on me and I don't have the time or spare cash for a new one. It should be easy enough, I'll mostly be running a line inside of the existing seams and possibly adding one line down the back

    Wish I had your talent. Enjoy the wedding, I'm sure you'll look great.
