    9/17:
    Food - calories were a little high, protein and carbs were reasonable.
    Exercise - took yesterday as a rest day (hadn't taken a real rest day in awhile)... basically was a slug. I got 2600 steps in for the day.

    Close watch rings ✅ just over 20k steps!
    Calorie goal was more toward maintenance. I just want to EAT this week. Ugh!

    Steps are done! A little over goal!!
    Also, I downloaded a new pedometer app since I seem to like tracking and logging. I may walk around some more to test it out.
    Might be ready to up the bar and raise the number of total steps.

    Alas, food choices today...not so good.

    Me too!
    At least it was maintenance and not overeating, right? Hang in there. For me hormones plus cooler weather equals an ramp up in my NOM-reflex.

    So far today, I've doubled my steps.
    I forgot how much I liked my pedometer app!

    Looking good for food today as well.

    Drove to Halifax today to visit my son. Did some shopping....that would be my only exercise. :) Went to an Italian restaurant for dinner....so my goals yesterday were not met.

    However, today will be better. I am starting off with a checkin!

    Apparently I picked up a cold at my dr's office Wed. This sucks. Bought more cold meds, chicken broth and some cookies to feel better. Otherwise food has been good with meals of eggs, protein shake coffee, pulled pork, steak and fish. Planning on some keto pancakes this morning on my work break.

    We went for a short walk yesterday and bowling last night. I think I need to put some alarms on my phone to help me move more. I have slipped into some pretty bad Covid habits.

    Close watch rings 👍🏻👍🏻👎 feel like I get plenty of movement each week with strength training plus walks. Logged 12k, 14k and 13k steps for the weekend but didn’t close rings on Sunday.
    Calorie goal 👎👍🏻👎 had a deficit Saturday but didn’t track Friday and on Sunday funday. Hubs has brought junk into the house so I’ve helped get rid of it by pouring it in my mouth. So this week is a total refocus on food choices.

    Sorry you got sick. We picked up something from either our groceries or the drive-thru at Burger King. Only one kid got sick, but she was sick for days. It wasn't COVID. The dr had her tested. But she was miserable and on the couch for 1.5 weeks.

    Hope you heal up soon.
    Haven't we all succumb to awful COVID habits. I know I have... :unamused:

    I have gone back to the MFP method instead of the Tdee method ....I also realized my activity was wrong so I have decided to put sedentary and add my workout burns .....MFP has given me 1650 calories ...I was at 2200 doing the tdee method .... I am also going back to daily weigh ins so that I have data ...as of this morning I have lost 1.2 lbs :)
