    My goal today is to not let the scale throw me off track, I had a bit of a whoosh a week or so ago and it's crept up a little this week, despite knowing I'm in a deficit. Trend wise it's moving within 0.5lb but it's times like these, especially when stressful at work too, that I just think s*d it.

    Taking it easy today,
    • keep within my calorie goal
    • drink water
    • clean the bathroom - it counts as exercise right?? 😂😂

    For today:
    • Morning cardio - bike ride (done! 6 mile ride this morning)
    • 7k+ steps (lower on bike days, as that doesn't count as "steps")
    • <2000 calories
    • Beat Saber or some other VR game after work (gaming while standing up and moving is much better than sitting down playing games/watching tv)

    I completed everything but the VR session. I was super tired last night and went to bed early instead.

    For today I'm going to let myself rest a little. Keeping under my calorie goal is still a thing, but that's always a thing :)

    Tomorrow morning I've got the start of week 2 of Couch to 5k in the morning, then going to check out the Y gym in the evening (I joined last night).

    Today I want to go for a walk, eat within my calories (lower end of range) and have fun playing a new board game with my friend.

    Today I want to survive the heat. If I want to up my steps I suppose I need to use the treadmill for something other than keeping my demon pup de-energized.

    Oh yeah and be happy.

    That is it for me today. It is too hot to think of anything more. I wonder if the heat will be easier next year when I am substantially less than I am today.

    I managed it, I'm really pleased with myself at the moment I'm staying very focused.

    I love overnight oats! My favourite way to make them is about 60g oats, 120g cherry or blueberry yoghurt, 50ml oat milk and 20g dark chocolate chips and finally topped with some blueberries.

    I will try your recipe, if I can find oat milk. What do you put them in fridge in?

    You can use normal milk I am just trying to cut down on dairy so I use Oat Milk & Soy Yoghurt.

    I normally use little glass jars, but small tupperware would work too.

    Tuesdays and Thursdays are fasting days for me - so today's goal is to build, in my mind, the PERFECT 600-calorie salad to end my 24-hour fast with tonight.
