    Someone brought in a beautiful gourmet cake yesterday at work. It was like chocolate mousse filling, hazelnut and butterscotch brittle encased in solid chocolate. I couldn't resist. 😕

    Exercise: Yes - walked a mile three different times over the day
    Calories: No - looks like about 700 over :/
    Tracked: Yes - started yesterday, finished today

    Yesterday was a killer - up at 3 am, and I didn't get home again until 3:30 am this morning. A bunch of meetings, then a potluck send-off for a colleague who is leaving. I packed my usual eggs, peanuts, and yogurt cup for most meals of the day, plus an apple.

    Food at the potluck was a wonderful selection of ethnic food from colleagues from diverse backgrounds. I tried to feast with my eyes and chose to eat about 6 small cubes of paneer in paneer makhani, maybe 1/3 c rice, about 10 chips with homemade guacamole, and someone had brought some kind of fish filet, so I had about 1.5 of those. No alcohol, no desserts, but over the course of the day I had several espresso drinks, and the milk really pushes the calories up.

    Up at 7:30 am this morning. Not at my most tip-top shape, and I'm on solo kid duty the majority of the day. Whew!

    December Week 1 Weigh-In
    Previous: 159.6
    Current: 159.5

    Busy, busy week! Lots of positives, though. Got a full ride offer to a very strong law school. Went to a holiday party with the guy I've been dating.

    Need to get back to tracking though--I fell off the wagon this week. I'm trying to make intuitive choices and to keep focused on fitness but definitely need tracking to actively lose weight. I want to lose at least 3 pounds in December!! I need to get the ball rolling again.

    I've been on this see saw for several months now and just want to show people how weighing once a week or weighing daily can produce confusion about weight loss. Having a weekly weigh in can be discouraging when it shows a gain of a pound or two when in reality that hasn't happened. I picked Friday as my weigh in day thinking I would most likely show a loss for the week. That hasn't been the case as overall I am just maintaining. I'm at the point where I can actually pinpoint the reason for the fluctuations whether it's salt intake, dehydration from an intense workout, having a beer, etc. I track my daily weight on Weight Guru and the following is a chart for the past month (Thanksgiving sticks out!!!):

    Happy with that, didn't make it out for a run this week, should be able to get a few kms in next week though which will hopefully help keep the progress going.

    Exercised?: Yes (Drone track setup).
    Calories?: Yes
    Tracked?: Yes

    Over 7,000 steps before I got home at 2:00pm.

    Practice day at local club. Technical but fun course. Ended up coming home early before packup to fix drones for Rookies day Sunday. Four drone to fix, only one problem was because of a crash.

    Exercised?: Yes (Drone race setup and packup and 3km in 25 mins - hills).
    Calories?: Yes
    Tracked?: Yes

    Rookies day at local drone race club. I am only borderline rookie :) . Day was designed to allow people who had never raced before to have a go. Easy course, lots of flying. I flew about 12 times. We had at least 10 people new to drone racing participate.

    ...

    I started cutting carbs!!!!! Thanks for the advice @craigo3154

    @ShareASmile. You are welcome.

    Reducing carbs (especially processed carbs) is generally a good thing to try for most on a western diet (US/Australia). See how it works into your lifestyle and whether this type of change can be work for you.

    Processed carbs and long shelf life foods are WAY too prevalent (and cheap because of government subsidy and economy in the supply chain). They are generally calorie dense and satiety poor (don't make you feel full).

    Finding low-processed carb take-away or fast food is VERY difficult. In Australia, the best I have found is grilled chicken tenders (Portuguese style, no batter). Caesar Salad is also often OK (but watch the dressings). You need to look at not only the food, but the sauces.
