    @quiltingjaine Yes, I love that we are on this journey together, I’ve been going to a boot camp type of gym for the past 2 years. I’ve gone with @Anlaing016 a few times to 24 hour fitness, starting to feel a little more comfortable with that.

    09/07
    …..193.4 UNFAIR GAIN….. I had a very severe sugar drop (T2D) last night and had to quickly eat carbs that I would not have eaten otherwise. I quickly ate EXACTLY what my doctor recommended, 1 slice of bread with peanut butter & about 8 oz milk (2%). It definitely felt like I was saving my life when I was poking it in and drinking the milk too. So I am up a bit which feels pretty unfair. Otherwise I had a great day – on point with diet and exercise that I’d planned. Yesterday’s stats before the small & quick carb snack: 1118 Calories In / 2460 Calories burned. 32 Net carbs mainly spaghetti squash casserole. 11,850 Total Steps & 5.01 Total Miles. 12/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 4 hours & 12 minutes. I walked at moderate pace for 36 minutes, I did misc yard work, painting & general outdoor chores for 67 minutes. I danced last night for 17 minutes, Sample Song “Jealous” by Nick Jonas. Total extra calories burned 616.

    09/08 …..193.4 ….. It may have dropped if not for that zucchini bread my neighbor baked & brought over. Oh my! Yesterday’s stats: 1987 Calories In / 2907 Calories Out. 17,220 Total Steps & 7.29 Total Miles. 13/13 Fitbit Step Hours & I slept a whopping 6 hours & 10 minutes and I am so tired today. Probably from the carbs on the bread yesterday evening. I did some light cabin cleaning & housework for 110 minutes including some painting. I did some yard work for 40 minutes. I did some low impact aerobics for 30 minutes (instead of dance) and I walked at moderate pace for 69 minutes. Total extra calorie burn was 1229.

    09/09 …..193.6 ….. No TMI, so its probably a normal fluctuation. I’m ending exactly where I started so I didn’t make goal – a wash. However, better than a gain! Yesterday was my day off of any extra activity to give my body a shake-up & rest. However, I did clean a tourist cabin for about 33 minutes burning an extra 120 over normal day. Yesterday’s stats: 1681 Calories In / 2532 Calories burned. 44 Carbs. 12,074 Total Steps & 5.11 Total Miles. 13/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 5 hours & 11 minutes and woke up running busy with my business but still so tired. The zucchini bread again!?!? Things are slowing down a bit this month for tourism now that typical vacation time is over. I will have to pick up extra movement & exercise to make up for it. Great Job everyone this round. So many has made goals or maintained and I am so proud of us all!!!!!

    @arlak21 & @Anlaing016 Isn’t it great to have someone to do this with? When I was staying with @MBabydoll we ate the same things and went to the gym together. My gym buddy at home has family issues and has sort of pooped out on the gym.

    @Scallyboo Learning what works for us is what these challenges are all about.

    @GrubyTylek Posts can only be edited for 1 hour. Copy and paste is the way to go!

    You can always come back! Lol!! Thank you for the article. More food for thought. May be time to reassess my career path.
