    December Loss ~

    Thoughts: I'm still way off on my workouts. Need to get moving again. Now I've been completely out of fresh produce for 2 days and it's showing 😳 Must get to grocery store. I'm falling into winter hibernation mode, and I need to break that pattern now.

    • Continue Meal Planning
    • Log meals & exercise daily in MFP
    • Focus on daily 500 calorie deficit goal
    • No calorie intake after 8pm.
    • Hit Fitbit step goal of 5000 - 1685 ⬇
    • Hit active minutes goal of 20 minutes daily - 0 ⬇
    • Hit strength training goal of 3 days on & 1 rest day

    Strength Training or Aerobics:
    Squats, lunges, push-ups (elevated), arm circles, side bends, & tricep lifts.
    • 12/1-4 - missed, missed, aerobics, Rest
    • 12/5-8 - missed, missed, missed, Rest
    • 12/9-12 - missed, missed, 50, Rest
    • 12/13-16 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/17-20 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/21-24 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/25-28 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/29-31 - 50, 50, Rest

    Lost 1 lb, and now .4 of a loss will take. I have a bit of a head cold. So expect to see more up and down.

    Before the head cold decided it was the winner, did some baking for the Holidays. All using alternate flours and alternate sugars. That way it does not negatively impact blood sugars, and any of the blood lipids.

    I am totally off white sugar, brown sugar, white or wheat flour, all pastas and rice. I follow Low carb, not Keto. I admit I do use a number of Keto recipes more in the dessert area. And yes I find it sustainable.
    Before you all hit disagree I wonder what your blood lipids show. Mine fall in the outstanding good category do yours?

    Onward and downward for all!

    December Loss ~

    Thoughts: I've been lax in posting. Catching up. Scale had spiked, but I'm back down today. I'm still way off on my workouts. Truly falling into winter hibernation mode, and I need to break that pattern now. Fitbit sat on charger for 3 days. I'll take a look at 7 day report once there is data. Work craziness has eased up, now it's time to get ready for Christmas. We are pretty subtle here, so not to much stress or prep.

    December Game Plan & Goals: (Use stats from Fitbit 7 Day Summary)
    • Continue Meal Planning
    • Log meals & exercise daily in MFP
    • Focus on daily 500 calorie deficit goal
    • No calorie intake after 8pm.
    • Hit Fitbit step goal of 5000
    • Hit active minutes goal of 20 minutes daily
    • Hit strength training goal of 3 days on & 1 rest day

    Strength Training or Aerobics:
    Squats, lunges, push-ups (elevated), arm circles, side bends, & tricep lifts.
    • 12/1-4 - missed, missed, aerobics, Rest
    • 12/5-8 - missed, missed, missed, Rest
    • 12/9-12 - missed, missed, missed, Rest
    • 12/13-16 - missed, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/17-20 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/21-24 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/25-28 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/29-31 - 50, 50, Rest

    December running Loss/Gain: Gain 0.9

    Most of what I have read regarding water consumption, does not say that coffee should be separate. Meaning water in one column all other beverages in another. Remember coffee is mostly water. Unless you are drowning it in sugar and creamers and based on how much you state you are drinking I do not think that is the case.

    The below is from Mayo Clinic

    I've been seeing ads that say caffeinated drinks hydrate you as well as water does. Is this true?
    Answer From Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D.

    It is true that caffeinated drinks can contribute to your daily fluid requirement.
    Drinking caffeine-containing beverages as part of a normal lifestyle doesn't cause fluid loss in excess of the volume ingested. While caffeinated drinks may have a mild diuretic effect — meaning that they may cause the need to urinate — they don't appear to increase the risk of dehydration.
