    Log all food. 🙂

    Meet Calorie Goal. 🙂

    Stretch daily. 🙂

    Exercise 3x per week. 🙂 3 down

    Live purposefully. 😐 i shuffled my schedule and even though I finished my work (at 11:30pm) i would have been more productive if I had stuck to the schedule.

    My inspiration for this is fron brendon.com on youtube if anyone is interested.

    @Sabine_Stroehm @kpk54 @jogetsgains Thanks for the info! I have contemplated upgrading but just wasn't sure. I have used an app called Carb Manager as well. But....I really like MFP, the set up for logging food is so simple.

    8/7/18

    Did my first triathlon! My hubby has been doing them for years, has done a few Ironmans....many marathons...so I figured it was time I tried one. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I guess the run was the worst part. Anyway, I may even do another someday!

    My goals are as usual:

    Net carbs - 25 or below
    Calories - met or under
    Exercise - as always.....
    Water - NEED MORE!
    Night time snacking - planned snack only

    I'm in! My goals, including FitBit tracking:
    • Log all food o:)<3o:)
    • Make or surpass step goal :o 6 out of 7 days
    • Make hourly 250+ step goals :p Sitting in church makes this impossible!
    • Make or surpass activity goal :o 6 out of 7 days
    • Make hydration goal :# Not perfect but I'm happy with the progress
    • Stay under Calorie and Carb goals :# 6 out of 7 days. (The day the internet went down and I couldn't log anything I went 8 calories over but I'm counting that as a win.)
