    Late getting on here today!
    But I did so good yesterday - made chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies for when my HS friends come next weekend, and also grandsons the weekend after. I knew if I took even 1 bite, I would want more. So I had my water next to me while baking, and did eat a Atkins bar, and did not eat one bite! They are now in the freezer. Next saturday I've already told myself that I will have one or two, but I am pre-planning it. Hoping by planning a "cheat" day that I can get right back on track.
    But, my weight is only 1 lb from being out of the 200s, so hope to keep my momentum going!

    So just for today, monday
    1. low carbs
    2. no sugar
    3. drink water
    4. exercise.

    So a week of average to not so good eating but below average exercise as I have a knee injury and really can't train properly at the moment.
    Off to Dublin for 3 v intense days of work tomorrow (although thankfully in English for a change).

    Goals during hat time:
    - Do basic knee rehab routine Every. Single. Day.
    - Avoid any sugar based snacks in the mornings/ at lunch
    - Remember to just pause and breathe to check in:Is it hunger or just tension making me want to eat?

    Will reassess how I will go about the rest of the year with potential injury when I'm back.

    Keep going everyone. .. your honesty and your posts encourage me.

    Good to see you back! Hope your knee gets better soon!

    J4T Monday
    1. Put dinner in crock pot. - though I got out of bed a 6:25, but it was actually 7:25 and I had to be out the door by 7:40. The dinner did not make it to the crock pot!
    2. Take breakfast lunch and snack with me to work - food did not make it into my bag!
    3. Focus on sticking to calorie goals one meal at a time. :smile:
    4. Go jogging :smile:
    5. Finish grocery shopping, - had to choose between jogging or shopping

    All in all a CRAZY day, but I held it together and met my calorie and exercise goals, so hooray for me!


    J4T Tuesday
    1. Put dinner in crock pot

    If you want a really good laugh, check out this thread. - You Know When You're in the MFP "Zone" When...

    Sorry, I don't know how to make it a link
    It's in the success stories section. I laughed so hard, I was wondering if I should count it as exercise!

    JFT Monday 1) brush/floss before bed (for a simple habit, I have serious issues with continuity on this one) nope fell asleep on the couch
    2) At least prep lasagna for tomorrow's dinner. If time permits go ahead and bake it and just eat leftovers - the weather warmed back up so decided to wait a few days
    3)20 minutes exercise - minimum went fishing for a bit

    JFT Tuesday 1) brush/floss before bed
    2)zumba video or bellydance workout

    JFT
    I will go back & read some of my past posts for inspiration. Need to revisit my goals & make them more concrete/measurable.
    Pretrack-struggling the past few days.
    Drink 9 cups of water.
    Walk - take puppy on 1/2 of it. Grateful to have her in my life.
    Listen to an inspiring podcast.
    Weights.
    Take MIL for PT evaluation. Be proactive at this meeting.
    Create 3 posters for church.
    Try blocking out time to stay focused on different tasks.
    In bed by 9:30.

    My mantra for the day "excellence doesn't just happen, it's a practiced habit".

    got to the cardio even though I didn't do it when I planned- got out in the rain even! That's what writing it out here helped with thanks! :) Still working on the water, logged all food.
