    @Nony_Mouse Thanks!!
    Happy Happy Birthday @baconslave ...I hope you have a great one ....We are also back to home schooling (I have always home schooled her) ..but mine is a Sophomore so mom doesn't have much to do anymore unless she needs help :)

    Yeah we've always homeschooled as well. My oldest graduated in May so thank goodness I only have 3 to wrangle right now. I have to stay on my Junior's case b/c he gets distracted and draws things out, so I have to micromanage him a bit more than I would like, but he's improving.

    Under calories 👍🏻
    Low carb/high protein 👍🏻

    Another good day. Closed the watch rings and stayed busy. I’m dragging a bit getting back into my work routine and likely from cutting carbs. I ate a fairly light lunch and considered eating more but waited a bit and forgot about food. Nice change of pace!

    6 Jan:

    I hit the wall with a thud this afternoon, so this one isn't flash (bad night's sleep mostly to blame, I think/hope)
    1. Log, min 500 deficit, aim for 750 - yes, a little over 500
    2. Net carbs under 50, protein over 100 - yes (34) and yes (118).
    3. 5000 steps a day min (this is bumping from 3000, there may be bad days where I don't make it, but that's a given) - no, only just over 3000
    4. Min 30 min walk unless I'm too unwell - definite no
    5. 30 Days of Yoga - Not even the energy for a gentle practice :\
    6. Start riding my bike again - nope.
    7. Soft weight loss goal of 2kg - I'll be doing diet break starting late in the month, so will have some gain from refilling glycogen stores
    8. Diet break!!! Two weeks of summer fruit. - start Jan 24

    Tomorrow is another day...

    Oh! I have now lost 10% of my starting weight, and am a third of the way to goal :) Slim by Spring, I shall be.

    Calories, carbs under goal 👍🏻
    Protein over 100g 👍🏻
    Close watch rings 👍🏻

    Feeling back to normal is nice! No heartburn and no headache or stomachache in the last three days. On a gray and dreary day in Ohio, I’m feeling confident of the coming month.

    I think one thing I should have added to my goals ( I guess its not too late!) is to get to bed earlier. I have been staying up way to late and feel terrible in the morning.

    So for Jan 6...
    net carb goal :)
    Calorie goal :)
    water :(
    exercise :)

    How do you girls make the check marks and x's? I looked in the emojis and don't see them there?

    1) FBG (mmol/L) 4.2 ➡️ 🟢 ... the last couple of days it has read low through the night but was low throughout most of yesterday - wondering if cardio boxing dislodged the filament or whether DOMS in my arms is the issue
    2) Carb Goal <100g 🟢 (92g)
    3) Calories Goal < 🟢
    4) Resistance/Weights ❌ First time I have done cardio boxing in a while and now my arms are totally dead and agony...
    5) Water - 27oz💧Not great without that 17oz bottle when I do a training session and with the sensor acting up really miss try and get through two large bottles today
