    Get friends! A few victories for the week despite being up a tad bit on the scale. 1. I had my yearly wellness exam this week and was dreading the scale. You know how it is, you weigh at home at one weight and then at the doctors it is 10 pounds heavier. Not this time! It was only a difference of 3 pounds and that was with heavy boot shoes and still below the 200 mark! So happy! And 2. Last night I walked around downtown Fort Worth to see the Christmas Tree and did so in heels! I could not do that last year!

    @mrmcgrath this is so awesome, that Dr. scale versus home scale situation can be a bear! And heels....sigh. Makes one feel amazing. =>

    Sunday check in - I missed yesterday evening!

    @digger61 - congrats on the great weighin!! =>

    Week recap: Been an interesting week with this new style of thought work and working toward that habit! I think I've learned I don't listen to my body and cues much, I do eat what I have planned for the most part, and usually with things on-plan even if I change my mind. I'm a very fluid person in weight loss - I like to do what works and if that stops, go to something else that does. This isn't a revelation, it's always been that way, it's just been reaffirmed.

    One revelation - I thought I have more hunger on a typical basis than it seems I have had this week. Will be interesting to see if that continues or maybe this was an anomalous week....?

    Prelog 3 meals? B no, L skip, D yes
    Times? B 1130, D bridge soup at 430, rest at 645
    Non-planned eating? no - I did eat part of my dinner at 430, I think that is a bridge between 2 meals meaning eating within dinner but breaking it up
    Thoughts? DISCOVERY thought: I enjoyed breakfast and was hungry but not overly so. No distractions and ate all of it, felt satisfied and great. On walk 45 min later, realized I was just a hair fullish feeling, I do not usually eat to that at any meal - where was it in the meal that may have been a better place to stop? Has this happened before and I was not aware? Oddly, my instantaneous thought when i first realized the feeling is that I felt pleasant and then it hit me that it was instead a slight overfull feeling
    Thoughts during overeats? had the above after thoughts but I am just not sure what the heck
    Mood? fabulous mood today! Great weather and an outdoor walk!
    Obstacles? twingy knee - why are you back?
    Hunger? not really a hungry day
    1% effort today? took time to enjoy breakfast without any distractions, did not have any negative feelings on a gain by the scale of .9 because it just is (my weight fluctuates quite a bit), bought tights to wear with a dress that is above my knees....another step closer to going out in it!!
    3 good things? I've kind of forgotten why I am asking this?
    Exercise? 3 mile hood walk [steps logged the next day] (steps 14Dec2019 12,638)
    Sleep? 10p-8a [log the morning after]
    Nighttime eats? eating late enough for it to not be an issue

    Today-

    Cals- between yesterday and today I am 40 over so that is ok.

    My other goals are half met. Yesterday aimed to do 45 mins of mobility work, I did 20.

    Today wanted to do some upper body with weights, but can't find my dumbbells which is completely ridiculous. But I washed my carpet last weekend and so I put them somewhere and now I can't remember where.

    Thinking about NY's goals- did I say some goals scare me or I think about easy goals? So I think sometimes I do and so maybe in the new year I need to challenge myself more. The hardest thing for me to make goals on is sweets.

    @its_cleo funny about your dumbbells, I hate when I misplace something, especially as I live alone and can't blame it on anyone else! I just finished replying on the "20" thread and was thinking over the last year and where I am now. I think it's good to have a combination of easier and harder goals, that way you can achieve some you might otherwise put off then have ones to strive for. The latter can always be broken down into smaller goals so it is less intimidating.

    Monday check-in
    Calories- under
    Exercise- strength training, bike, calisthenics, dancing/aerobics
    Water- over, not as much as usual

    5 for 90
    1. Gym 3xs a week- I'm so proud of myself for going today! I even went in the gym and left 2 minutes in, returned a call in my car for 1 hour, then made myself go back in and do weights even though I'd spent that hour thinking of leaving. I slacked on elliptical though! But I made it and my main gym focus is weights.
    2. Exercise 30 minutes- done
    3. Decluttering- shoot, none. If I hit my "garbage can full" goal this week I'll need to spend some time doing tomorrow.
    4. Social media- stayed busy, checked in
    5. Trigger foods- this category has changed a bit for me as I'm more "triggered" by feeling hungry when I'm probably not, eating too much, then skipping my official dinner. I didn't go through this when losing weight, it's frustrating!! I'm trying not to eat dinner before working out at night because I was eating all my calories between lunch and exercising. I made it another day without overdoing it before working out. I added in dancing/aerobics then some floor exercises and squats and did those right after eating and that helped with a full feeling plus put me more in touch with how I was feeling.

    @wwood008 Good for you! Maintaining is a nice option over the holidays.

    @Jactop sorry to hear about your flu virus. Hope you are feeling better.

    Tough day- over cals. All day was craving something greasy/carbs like french fries. I resisten and then realized I had nothing for dinner. So ended up with fastfood. Over cals by about 150.

    With trainer today. He started to teach me how to do a clean and jerk which is a tough move with a barbell. I love this stuff so I was super excited. Unfortunately it hurts one of my wrists- my right wrist has been messed up for months. So disappointed. Sat I'm seeing a massage therapist/acupuncturist so maybe he can help.

    Haven't had time to look for my own weights yet. They're here somewhere.

    Tuesday check in
    steps @TeresaW1020 I realized I am behind: 12/14 -12,839, 12/15 - 12,178, 12/16 - 353

    So. Yesterday was a monster bout of food poisoning. No eating plan, not much eating, but a really awesome abs workout. Ugh. Today I was **so much** better, which I suppose 16-17 hours of sleep within 24 hours might play a part in. Didn't much feel like eating today but it was all good. Didn't (don't?) feel much like super analyzing the food and thoughts and whatnots today, just going with the flow.

    Prelog 3 meals? no
    Times? B skip, L 1130, D 7
    Non-planned eating? all on plan
    Thoughts during overeats?
    Thoughts? Had a lot of work to do today and didn't think much about food
    Mood? Happy to not be sick!
    Obstacles? getting over food poisoning the day before
    Hunger? not really
    1% effort today? logging and jpurnaling when I didn't really want to - felt like I didn't have much to say
    3 good things?
    Exercise? [steps logged the next day] none
    Sleep? [log the morning after] wowser - from 10-745 after sleeping almost all day yesterday
    Nighttime eats? n

    @wwood008- not to worry, the wagon is always there and it seems except for parties and cookie decorating, maybe you were mostly on it... => Lovely thing about that wagon, it's always in the garage, just gotta hitch that puppy up.

    @nbbaby try not to worry about it, if you're swollen it's likely the cause.

    @Jactop sorry to hear you're not feeling well, I hope you feel better soon!

    @mrmcgrath Nice loss! Way to go at getting back to the gym, it's a great feeling!

    @wwood008 nice loss! Making cookies and parties are definitely a challenge!

    @its_cleo Don't be too hard on yourself for going over, we all need to be able to enjoy foods we don't eat like we used to every once and awhile. Only 150 calories over is really good!

    @raleighgirl09 so sorry to hear about the food poisoning! I'm glad you were able to get some rest.

    1. Gym 3xs a week- going tomorrow
    2. Exercise 30 minutes- done
    3. Decluttering- none
    4. Trigger foods- not a specific one, just was real "cravy" grocery shopping but got out with just a diet Pepsi.
    5. I'm changing this to goal for tomorrow- go to gym
