    I was terrible at logging this weekend, but stayed on plan - YAY!

    My goals for this week:
    Log
    Net 20 carbs
    Adequate water (I don't know that 100 oz is necessary/realistic for me)
    Exercise
    Work on macros

    For the month:
    No Alcohol

    The weekend was a mix.
    Did good with cooking and eating stayed LCHF.
    But yesterday was rainy all day and I basically stayed in bed all day, just watching TV and napping. CBS Sunday Morning, Pats Game, then the news, a movie, then the debate. LOL.

    You would think I would be feeling rested today, but feeling tired and unmotivated to be here at work. We didn't get a vacation day today. Good news is that traffic was easy.
    I feel like going home and going to bed. Maybe I am coming down with something?

    Sorry I've not been posting - the weekend has been a bust anyway.

    Back on track today.

    1. Drink 10 glasses of fluid a day :mrgreen:
    2. Stick to your Calories :mrgreen:
    3. Keep carbs in check :mrgreen:
    4. Weight lifting 5x a week for 60min :mrgreen:
    5. Log honestly :mrgreen:
    6. Sleep 8 hours :mrgreen:
    7. Keep up that salt intake! :mrgreen:

    1.Went a little higher than weekend carb alottment, but wasn't horrible. No trigger foods...just a few too many carbs and cals.

    2.Feelings check in: Was a low spirit, low activity, rainy, gloomy day. I blended right in.
    Coping strategy: tv, movie, nap, phone, facebook, painting, nap again, early to bed.
    not especially coping well, just getting through a long day.

    3. Still on target for a Wed. weigh in. Haven't been as hard core keto as I would like, but still getting ready for a reality check.

    4. Zero activity. Could have been woodwork for the day. It can only get better.

    October 10: Walked to the grocery stores for stevia sweetened water enhancer and a birthday card for my brother.

    85 minutes walk time. 5.1 miles. ~3.5mph. Rotator cuff exercises: 2 of 13. The two I hate because they hurt the most. :'(

    OMG What a beautiful, laughing, smiling, bucket list of a day!! I'm tearing up over it! Hiking, flying in a helicopter, laughing with my loved ones, being in a forest, climbing rocks, jumping creeks, hopping, skipping, and running, twirling around with glee....it was a day I'll always keep as a snapshot of happy.

    I did not weigh again, which is a victory in itself lol!
    I drank lots of water!! Yay!
    I got loads of physical activity today! Yay!
    I did great with carbs and calories! Yay!
    Keto foods only! No peanuts!

    I DIDN'T SMOKE!!!

    Let me tell you....so much joy. :)

    Day Nine!

    Still a non smoker. Very tired and sad the boy is gone.

    No weigh in. Yay!
    Water is a bust...but I did drink a 44oz diet Mountain Dew on the drive home...that does count, so okay then. Yay!
    Activity, nope. Boo.
    Carbs and calories a big Yay!

    Day Ten!

    Let me just say it's a huge bust.
    Over ate. I mean i binged. So today was a huge boo. In all ways.

    No!!! Not all ways. Still a Non smoker!
    Otherwise today was a fail.

    October 10th

    1. Log every BLT (Bite, Lick and Taste) each and every day :|
    2. Keep my total calories under 1,600 :| ??
    3. Keep my net carbs under 40 grams :| ??
    4. Exercise consistently: walking: 10,000 steps per day, yoga: 2 -3 times a week, weights: 2 times a week >:) (did walk 10,000 steps)
    5. Keep up hydration each and every day. >:)

    Yesterday was a fail. I got really pissed off at a bunch of people at work so when I got home had a bowl of cereal to feel better. Yeah silly, but it did help. Still pissed off today but I'm in more control today. I'm just down right mad! Stupid higher ups think they know everything, except all they do is talk with no action. :)

    Just checking in. Not a good week last week. Had a good friend pass away, which was hard. Didn't stick to my goals very well. Too many calories eaten and not enough exercise. I did stick with logging every day, but no journaling. Oh well, a new week! More new challenges! Back to searching hard and strong for a new job. And I'm studying for my certification exam! Talk about stress!!! :/

    1.It appears that In order to keep myself from trigger foods this week, I'm finding some success by just upping my carb limit about 25g. This means no keto progress but still low carb at less than 50g. Anything to stop the crazy eating. So I'm pretty stablized for the moment, but definately missing the keto benefits.
    2. Feelings check in: kind of so-so. Not really feeling good about things.
    Coping strategies: press on with things I like to do, kind of a "fake it til you make it" mode. Watching out for my critical, judgy self as I really don't need to be my own enemy right now. I need to be my own best friend.
    3. Tomorrow is weigh in. I know there will be a gain...getting ready to deal with it.
    4. Not much moving around.

    over and out.

    I did log though. Might as well keep the data handy, right?

    I ate keto only. So my carbs are great.
    Water not so hot.

    Okay, I'm just having a rough couple of days.
    I ate on plan today, but I'm still wired badly.

    So to keep it short, I did meh, okay. No binge.
