    Try leaving out any emojis. They hack off the post on some platforms.

    1.Carbs/cals were good yesterday..keto range.

    2. Emotions check in: down for the count.
    Coping strategy: made travel plans to see my son, was nice to myself, kept daily expectations a bit lower to allow body to rest. Read a book, used social media distract my mind from negative thinking.

    3. Weigh in: up 3.6 lbs since last weigh in (better than I imagined) and am now 17.8 from final goal.
    For the record I plan to weigh in every day now since I seem to need daily accountability. Hope I don't slack off on this....my history indicates that when I don't weigh and log...I'm up to no good food plan wise!

    4. Activity: Still feeling a need to rest my body. As long as I can stick to my food plan...I am okay with that for the time being. Especially since I have a couple dance nights and travel plans coming up later this week.

    So glad I got on the scale again. It feels like a babystep in the right direction.

    Day Seven!!
    Didn't weigh again... Trying to break that habit.

    Drank water.... Minimally. Boo.
    Drove for almost four hours. Daily cleaning. So yeah. Boo.
    Carbs I did well, and calories. Yay!!!!!!
    I ate keto foods!!!!!

    I DIDN'T SMOKE!!!!!! Biggest HELL YEAH!!!

    A good day. Great weather. Great family.

    Day Eight!
    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.

    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.

    Okay! Let's try again!!!

    Day Twelve!
    Feeling better today mentally.
    I ate very well today, did some unplanned fasting, and oddly enough helped with hunger.
    I drank a load of fluid today!!
    Carbs are great!!
    Exercise..... Yeah....I really need someone to kick my pants about this one. I'm soooo lazy!!

    I'm still cranky, but I took a nap lol

    Yesterday: rotator cuff exercises.
    Today: Walked 4.1 miles, 70 minutes, 3.54 mph. Stuffed too many groceries in my backpack. Heavy. Carried the bread so it didn't get smashed. :)

    Jumping in late on this (I have to get back in the habit of visiting the group). I eat fully Keto but I want to re-focus on eating to satiety and no further, getting my exercise in, and avoiding excesses of dairy.

    October 12:
    1 serving or less of dairy: em7od5ymabaq.png
    >5000 Steps: (3661)
    < 20 g Carbs: 19g em7od5ymabaq.png
    Eating only when satiated: (didn't really need that dessert, now did I?)
    Exercise: (not really)

    1. Log everything accurately - CHECK
    2. Stay Hydrated - FAIL
    3. Reach protein macro (This is really hard for me) - CHECK I did good! Within 13 grams so it's a win for me.
    4. Work on my fear of fat (Appropriate for this time of year) - CHECK - Cheeses and Olive Oil!

    Not important but MAN do I have to watch that broccoli and chia seeds I love so much. Good thing it's net carbs!
