    Habit. Once you're in the habit of doing the right things, you just do them, even when you are having a hard day.

    I have to travel for work today, so I made sure to get up and hit the gym at 0500!

    Pre logging my workouts. It's forcing me to be accountable to myself. Also pre logging my meals, so I know exactly what I can eat later. Also was very shocked when I stood on the scale for the first time since restarting this again.(I am 17 days into it this time) I didn't want to admit how much I had fallen off the rails. The funny thing is, I don't feel badly about my weight gain. I have the exercise part in place, always have. For instance, I ran up the stairs from the basement to the third floor in my building and wasn't outta breath. It's my eating habits that have gotten back outta hand again. Oh well, ce la vie and I know, I got this. It's just gonna take time. And I know this works because I used myfitnesspal years ago and kicked all this weight to the curb. Kerb if you are British.....hehehehe

    It's so great that you kept the exercise up! I fell back in love with working out after a long time away. It doesn't necessarily help me lose weight (diet is really only what works for me) but it FEELS so good and it's so good for you!

    i ordered pizza and decided (really a friend told me about this) to take the toppings off and put it on my 50 calorie low carb 4g flatbread. Great way to eat pizza.

    I had a toothache (divine intervention?) which made me not want to eat much, especially if it involved chewing! I'd rather not have the toothache, but it did have bright side!

    Transitioning from mostly going on fasted runs to making sure I eat a little bit of each macro about an hour before running. I might not be as "fat adapted" (quelle horreur!) but I'm less hungry later in the day. Also, moved my protein into smaller portions, eaten intermittently throughout the day, instead of at 3 big meals. That makes me less hungry too.

    I'm shooting for 100g of protein daily, and 2L of water. Today was a good day. I hit 92g protein, drank 3.5L and hit my calorie goal of 1500. Also blasted out some weights this morning. If only every day were like today! LOL

    Knowing that I am retaining water if I have sore muscles. I just smiled and shook my head at the number on the scale instead of freaking out, and spent the day moving and eating in budget and making sure I drink all my water. As the soreness leaves, so will the water.

    I read today that food is not pain medication, best advice I have got!

    Steel-cut oatmeal made with whole milk, honey, and cardamom, with a side of cantaloupe, for breakfast. (about 540 cals)
