    @robynleegetsfit That's amazing! Congrats on the loss.

    Name- itscleo
    Weigh in day Sunday
    Weigh in week 2
    Last weight: 155.4
    Current weight 156.

    So it went up a little bit but I'm glad it's not more, because my birthday was last week and I really indulged, it was hard to get back on track.

    Calories for my week- I was under but only because I was sick yesterday and didn't eat anything.

    I had a goal to do some extra work with a foam roller and some mobility work and I didn't make it. Gonna try again this week.

    Thank you @its_cleo.

    I need to change my weigh in days to Tuesday’s.
    This week I haven’t really stuck with my goals, my niece was in the PICU and I wasn’t able to meal plan. Starting today off with a cold but hopefully this week will be better.

    @wwood008 sorry to hear about your niece. I hope she and mom are going to be ok. It's hard to think about meal planning at tines like that.

    Just take it one step at a time, hope you can do something nice for yourself.

    I have been thinking lately about journaling weight loss to go along with my favorite podcast philosophy and wondering how to do it so that I can actually accomplish it - working to not throw false or shallow commitments to myself. I have decided to do it in the notes of my MFP diary because I do log daily and about 95%ish of the time, I do get it completely accomplished in the evening. I also want to be more lively in my check ins here in the challenge so I can just copy it into a daily note for my check in and either keep it at that or add something, as time and desire permit.

    This is the plan - I hope it's helpful to others, as I expect it will be for me. => Copied below.

    Prelog meals? Yes, all 3! Yay!
    Non-planned eating? Yes, sausage bites while cooking breakfast, chips at lunch
    Thoughts during overeats? Lunch, worked chips in. Cooking eating was mindless - need to work on that
    Mood? good mood, no stress, happy day, excellent exercise
    Obstacle? knee clicky, less tender, using ibuprofen - 98% during walk
    Hunger? Some after wrap for lunch, ate chips
    1% today? Begin journaling in MFP, new habit - continuing to work it!
    Exercise? 3 mile walk
    Sleep? 9:45pm-7:00am
    Night time eats? No! =>
    3 good things? Knee really good, excellent energy all day, journaled and formulated a plan to fit it into MFP

    Cals- I think I'm on track today but I've been estimating a little too much. Tomorrow I need to start being more precise.

    Candy cane challenge- I'm ashamed to say I only made one supportive post. Will try a couple tomorrow bc it's a good thing to do. 🙂

    Went for a run today, in the rain. Did well. Made it up a hill I've been struggling with for a while.

    Monday check-in
    Calories- under
    Exercise- bike

    Today was an "eat everything in the house" day. The good part is the only stuff i could grab without a lot of prep was apples, vegetables, and beans! It fueled a good workout but i need to cut back on the amount i eat. @raleighgirl09 your idea is great, your post has me thinking!

    5 for 90
    1. Gym 3xs a week
    2. Exercise 30 minutes a day
    3. Decluttering-
    4. Social
    5. Trigger foods- did fine. The woman in front of me at the grocery checkout bought about 20 bags of candy, cupcakes, and other similar stuff. I know new improved me should be thinking of how much better my grocery cart will make me feel but a part of my brain was screaming "chocolate!"

    Tuesday Check-in
    Calories: a little over because I ate too many nuts today, net carbs 22 grams
    Water: over
    Exercise: 35 minute HIIT program on the treadmill. I didn't like the yoga that 21 Day Fix was doing today.

    I was back in control of my eating and it felt so much better both mentally and physically. Eating all the sugar that I've been eating the last week had me feeling so lousy. Why do I do that to myself!! :/


    @raleighgirl09, post has me inspired! I went and listened to James Clear video again on his Atomic Habits and how by changing our habits we can become 1% better every day and eventually change into the person we want to be. I did some Googling and I think we could start a habit tracker here that could help us in the New Year to change our habits, reach our goals, and see the change that so many of us so desperately want to achieve.

    James talks about how reaching our goals is about consistency and repetition and that we need to track our habits and strive to not break the chain. He has this cool graphic to show that we shouldn't skip twice in a row. I know from my own behavior that it's the multiple skipping that always gets me into trouble. I'm going to change this behavior!

    Is anyone interested in me pursuing this idea for more than just myself? Let me know!! :)

    Steps: 12/10 10,398

    A good day for me! Yay! A not-great meeting but I'm working through it and working to normalize what I feel I made bigger than it was. => Onward and upward.

    Prelog 3 meals? Yep!
    Non-planned eating? Not unplanned but some rearranging and switching out of choices
    Thoughts during overeats? none today so yay me!
    Mood? stressful work, not a great meeting with manager but no impact on eating
    Obstacles? Knee - same story, just keep plugging along
    Hunger? in between lunch and dinner, at work around 3 but may have been boredom, it wasn't a big deal and disappeared
    1% effort today? up at 5 for exercise, have been doing this for several weeks when I work in the office, also brought lunch in to avoid a heavy lunch provided by the company
    Exercise? gym treadmill and elliptical, also one mile around the work pond (09Dec19 10,408 steps) [log the day after]
    Sleep? 930p-500a [log the morning after]
    Nighttime eats? no

    Me!Me!Me! Agree wholeheartedly that it is the consistency that counts - consistency over perfection. Yes - Consistency Over Perfection. I'll never be perfect as crap happens and I'm human. But I can always pick back up and go back to what works and be consistent in my efforts.

    @TeresaW1020 - did you have something in mind, specifically?

    I went to see a registered dietitian today! I won't be calorie counting for a while now, but I will still be logging in daily and tracking for the group challenge. I am excited about this new way of eating, and we are definitely going to see results soon!
