    @fuelednfit Husband doing OK? My recovery for an appendectomy (age~50) was easy-peazy but I "milked" it for a few days. ;) Hope he's doing well.

    So wow ... time has flown by and I'm way behind in checking in so here goes!

    1. Log everything accurately - CHECK
    2. Stay Hydrated - CHECK
    3. Reach protein macro (This is really hard for me) - Nope! BUT ... I've only missed it by 8-10 grams so even though a fail I can handle that.
    4. Work on my fear of fat (Appropriate for this time of year) - Oh yeah -- I think it's not gonna take me too long to get over this! CHECK

    This is basically the same for the last few days so this will bring me up current.

    My carbs were less than 20!!

    My carbs are excellent! I made the decision to choose real dark chocolate and good peanut butter over the sf crap!
    I ate good keto foods.

    Once again, a great day!! No smoking another day.

    Week one summary. Was lucky to hold on to plan at least some of the time.
    I can and will do better next week.
    Onward, downward!

    October 7: I did my "at home" rotator cuff and bicep exercises. I didn't do them everyday as I said I would but actually the physical therapist told me every other day. So I'm good with that.

    This sucks. I won't elaborate other than to say some of these exercises take my breath away with the pain of a not so extreme stretch...
