    Great challenge. It's true planning is the key to success. I am in. This should help i have been struggling since giving birth. Goal for the month
    SW 201
    GW 195
    Plan and count and stick to the plan.
    Lower my carbs back to keto level by the end of the month.

    I will report daily goal at the end of the day.

    1. Practice mindfulness around food and eat slowly. YES
    2. Journal nightly to the questions: "Did I eat and move in a way that supported my health?" "What could I do better tomorrow?" YES
    3. Keep carbs <50 gm. by logging. YES
    4. Move 30 min. daily, minimum. YES
    5. Stay off the scale. YES
    6. Check in with this thread daily! YES
    7. Drink tea first before deciding to eat after 8pm.

    I got all my pumpkins two days in a row! 14/14

    Just a note: I was making myself crazy with a 1660 calorie limit for the day. It set off deprivation feelings. Yesterday, I bumped up my calories to 1800 and came in lower than 1660, but having had the mental room to notice how deeply satisfying my meals were. Yay!

    1 within weekend carbs: close enough...no binge foods. Big victory there.

    2. Feelings checked : yes
    3. Coping strategies: painting, house chores, TV movies, social media. Kept it low key; always feel better on Sundays.

    4. Minimal activity. Couch potato, mostly.

    Still, overall a solid day of steady living.

    October 3, day 3 of exercise
    60 minute walk, 3.4 miles
    20 minutes of stretching
    20 minutes of fearlessly doing these damn painful exercises for a torn rotator cuff/subluxated bicep that hurt like hello all waking hours. Whine, whine, whine.
