    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yep, walked about 2.7 miles today with my SO and did some abs/squats/pushups.
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yep, no restaurant food or gluten makes that relatively easy.

    It is so hard for me to believe that 40 percent or whatever % of people have no symptoms (ever vs just presymptom). The only thing I can think of is that altho this is a new virus perhaps some folks who have recently had some type of flu have built up some sort of immune response to this already. I really would love to see the research and see who figures out why some folks never show symptoms. I mean they have some large groups (like the Princess cruise ship) from which to pull data. Or maybe it has to do with the amount of exposure you get. this whole thing is such a puzzle. Sending many vibes that your test is negative!!!!!

    Dec 28:
    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? yes a nice long run today in the foggy am
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? yes on a small cut so will be glad when the month is over missing the nrg
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? yes

    and no one gets away without a photo of Bandit. It was SO warm yesterday that I took a chance and let him out for the first time in 2 weeks. Usually he takes off like from a starting gate - goes to his roll spot - rolls and then acts like a mad man for 5 minutes. To avoid that I hand walked him to his roll spot first. ;) You can see I put a polo back on that hind leg because he still has swelling at the top which continues to drift down and his fetlock was pretty puffy when I got there yesterday. He won't get unsupervised outings again until cleared by the vet who takes Xrays again on Wed... hoping all is still well.

    Thanks, I appreciate the good vibes. I should have said about 40 percent of all people who are tested and turn out to be positive have no symptoms. I put a longer reply on the group's What's on Your Mind Thread. Hopefully, the vaccine effort will really get underway soon.

    I am truly impressed with how long the December winner's circle list will be. Congratulations to all of you in the home stretch. Don't drop your focus now. IMO this is the most challenging month of the year.

    Though I know weight numbers are not the primary focus for us here in the UAC, I want to share that for November (a fairly challenging calorie month) I managed to get rid of 7.2 pounds, and for the October Challenge another -5.0. I am now weighing slightly less than October 2019, which seems like a miracle. Target weight is in sight (129-130 – weight at my nephew’s May 2019 wedding) and doable in the next couple months. I am grateful for the results. Also notable for the November UAC, I entered and walk/ran a virtual 5K. I looked at the results and I came in 154/357 for total entries, 87/234 female, and 19/87 over 50 female. I would have been happy if I even came in last, because I entered. Being in the top 50% is super motivating even though I know this kind of race is not full of competitive runners.

    So now for my December UAC. I am starting by raising my daily target calories by 50, and will be re-evaluating this every 10 days, as I want to start easing into my eventual maintenance calories. I don’t want to get go from lower calories to higher calories in a single day. I will be trying my best for the Winner’s circle, but need to be realistic and will at least commit to showing up daily and aiming to be a champion and aim to clean off 2 more pounds during December. Then, during my next 9 days in the Keys, I plan to walk/run to Sombrero Beach and even try to get you a sunrise photo (will take some planning :p ) and get back home. Google maps claims the distance is 3.3 miles each way. At for the rest of the month, my brain can only cope with planning til the 12th. Will regroup again once up north again.

    BTW in November, I did not opt for eating back my “exercise” calories like I had planned. My problem with the method of eating back each day’s exercise calories is that that calorie number not compatible with advance planning and tracking, and I like to plan and pre-track my days. So this is the reason I am going try upping my planned daily calories instead and that way I can continue with the pre-tracking that works well for me.

    *** MFP considers me under my calories for the day, but I am still currently not eating back exercise calories. So, Pass #1 used, but worth it – Oysters Rockefeller, and dinner of Seared scallops over Succotash with asparagus and a bacon ju. Lovely meal – no drinks or dessert. Ironic part is I was hungry by the time I got home. Speculating is that I will not make the winner’s circle this month, but still going to keep it in mind cause you never know.

    *** got in exercise before showering and packing, and then, when we discovered the airport restaurant was not open due to lack of customers, my “healthy planned airport dinner” became a boar’s head snack pack from newsstand, plus two airline cheez-its and 100 cal pack of skinny pop. Macros were not great, but calories stayed under goal!! :)
