    Took a break from lifting because I was away, but got lots of random exercise and ate on plan. Back to weights this week.

    July Goal: 170 lbs

    Hey ladies,
    My weight has shot way up this month :/

    I'm pretty sure a lot of it is water weight from the heat wave we're having, the fact that I started a bootcamp and am sore a lot, and eating pretty processed foods.

    I've had a couple false starts this month and last but I think I'm finally ready to make it stick this time. I always need a couple practice starts after I fall off the wagon, but I think I'm good.

    I purchased a meal-plan guide that I'm waiting to arrive. I think that'll help a lot. When I'm just starting something (or re-starting), I do so much better with a framework.

    Goals for the rest of the month are to not drink (exception for one birthday party I'm going to but I'm going to try to keep it minimal) and to drink more water.

    Happy Wednesday everyone! <3

    Height 5'5.5 (I like to claim 5'6")
    June goal: 155 lbs
    Ultimate goal: 140 lbs.

    March 22 - 162.5
    April 13 - 160.2
    May 25 - 157.8
    June 8 - 157.3

    July 2 - 165.8 (after vacation weigh-in)
    July 6 - 160.4
    July 20 - 162.3

    Forgot to check in last week and hate to post a higher number but it is what it is. Have been indulging in carbs this week plus TOM so a water bump.

    On the plus side, I have worked up to walking 4 miles per day with my dogs and doing a modified workout. This thing of not being 100% is getting old. I want my leg/ankle to be completely healed, and my sprained wrist is frustrating. But I am capable of exercising so I'm doing modifications. I still need to get motivated to dial in my food. It is a process and I only fail if I stop trying.

    I’ve appreciated eating at maintenance during transit. It’s been hard to guesstimate meals at restaurants and hotels, but the scale looks like I’ve not done too badly at my guesses. Two more weeks before we get the keys to our new house and get out of hotels. I’ve been able to keep up with running every 2-3 days, but I miss strength training.

    July goal - maintain

    Feb: 148.7
    March 1: 147
    April 1: 142
    May 1: 140.6
    June 1: 140.8 (moving average 137.7)

    July 1: 135 (moving average 135.2)
    July 8: 133.2 (moving average 134.5)
    July 15: 131 (moving average 131.7)
    July 22: 131.8 (moving average 132)

    I realized I was still losing for the past few weeks, so upped my calories again, and think I’ve actually hit maintenance. With friends and family in town now (and more or less for the rest of summer) I’m quite happy to have that extra room.

    Progress. Not as much progress as previous months, but I think as I get closer to my goal the margins get tighter. I think this will have me readjust my expectations for August as well.

    Weight up, BF reading is inching down, I’ll take it. Still swapping in veggies and fruits for packaged and processed stuff, still playing the macro game. But more maintenance eating than keeping a deficit. Resting a tweaky neck = lower NEAT and a few missed workouts. Glad it’s better. I did great with my macros for a girls night out but man, my hangover eating Sunday & even yesterday sucked. Back on track today.

    July Loss:

    _______________________________________________________________________

    Just got back from bachelorette weekend yesterday so my weight is bit up, mainly from drinking and sodium (i did not pay a ton of attention to food this weekend and it was glorious). Honestly not too upset with my # today since I had assumed I'd be maybe 2-4 lbs up (i hold onto water very easily if i stray from my "normal" meals) . Looking to get back to the 155s this week and get back on track with eating and meal prepping.
