    1. Carbs were moderate, not keto.
    I experimented with adding some protein/pita bread. Insane gas reaction last night and very puffed out eye bags this am. Just saying no to that. I do better even with ice cream than the grains. Lesson learned!
    So no bread in maintenance for me.

    2. Feelings check in: Yes. Adjusting expectations, and wearing the big girl panties.
    Coping strategies: painting,visiting, cleaning. Lightly active in the home.

    3. Weigh in on Wednesday. Postponed yesterday's weighing due to trying to preserve emotional stability after a so so food week. May just wait til next week, may jump on sooner.

    4. Lightly active, housework.


    Just hanging in for now. Waiting on a job response, trying to stick to establishing good routines for feeling happy, according to me. Working on maintenance eating, but still hoping to shed about 15 pounds as i go. Room for improvement, for sure in that area, but getting more consistant.

    I'm still shaking this cold but 2 weeks, it is leaving me.
    10/4 Lazy.
    10/5 Lazy again
    10/6 30 minutes of low impact (adapted) aerobics. Can't swing this left arm too much.

    Started some bodyweight exercises and did 5 different squats 10X. Planned on more but let's just say I have a lot of room for improvement. Eye opener.

    Most important: 13 exercises for rotator cuff/bicep: DONE!

    I did start this challenge, just didn't post all week. I did post in mfp each day. Met my goals for sept challenge. Hope to lose 3-5 lbs this month. I ate a brownie last night, Real ooey, gooey, chocolate goodness. Enjoyed it until this am....headache, stomach ache, bleh! Back on track today.....low low carb. Enjoying a cup of coffee this am. I like to put almond milk and I use Atkins vanilla shake as a creamer. Keeps my carbs low and makes my coffee creamy.

    Goals for October:

    Carbs under 50 net wu0zpq0mxhla.png

    Get outside more and enjoy my favorite season wu0zpq0mxhla.png

    Fall clean-up of the home :/

    Carbs were good. I had a full day outdoors Sunday which was great. I didn't exercise at all. ugh. Other than the basics there was no extra house cleaning effort.
