    10/4 check in
    Daily Goals
    1. Complete planned workout - fail - went to bed early
    2. Carbs within goal - no - net 30. I'm having a really hard time hitting net 20 with the amount of dairy and vegetables I eat. They're my only real carb source, so maybe I need to either up my goal or cut dairy. :/ OK, looking at my diary I'm lying...I've been using SF international coffee mix to flavor my coffee and it's adding 8 carbs/day. Without that, I'm much closer to net 20. I will finish what I have, but not repurchase.
    3. Drink 100 oz water - check
    4. Log all food - check

    Monthly Goals
    1. Lose 8 pounds
    2. No Alcohol

    7 out of 16 points for the month

    1. Carbs...no dice
    2. Emotions check in: a little compulsive
    Coping strategies: napping, tv, errands, talking...not really effective, but a good effort was made.
    3. Wednesday weigh in... pass.
    4. Some walking above usual....pacing, actually.

    Rough day: food plan was total fail, but kept steady with the life plans.

    The scale is a lying B.

    I drank the water!! Woo hoo!
    I exercised yesterday!!!
    My carbs were less than 20!!
    I stayed away from peanuts and squash.

    I posted some before and current pics.... The change is pretty drastic.
    I've lost a bunch of inches, and I'm feeling fairly victorious.

    Okay!!! Day Three!
    SW: 196.6
    CW: 194.2

    Got that whoosh on!!
    So.
    I drank my water!
    I exercised!
    My carbs were on point.
    And I didn't eat anything that might cause a catastrophe!!

    It was a good day, and the house is clean. I've lost inches, and I'm down a couple pounds. What a wonderful world.

    Woo hoo! Day Four!!!!
    SW: 196.6
    CW: 195

    Alrighty!
    I definitely drank tons of water!
    I exercised, there's no entry for push mowing the side of a hill. Sad.
    My carbs are bad *kitten*!
    Only keto foods in the face!!

    Another great day!!

    Another day complete!
    Weight the same.

    I drank... Not enough water. Boo!
    I did not exercise. Boo!
    My carbs are okay. Meh.
    I ate sf peanut butter cups. Not great. Boo!

    So....an okay day....
    But, i didn't smoke so... YAY!
