    Yes x 3 for Thursday
    First day back at tennis after a mild injury. Amazing what rustiness occurs after two weeks off exercise / in snacking will do to a person, ha!

    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes walking
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? No went out for breakfast, beach lunch picnic then my sister staying the night.
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? No will hve to use my pass today.

    Im finding with my passes once i know ive went over my calorie limit i hve the ah well im going to make it worth it mentality and then overeat. Interested to hear how others manage this??? Perhaps i may be better off to set a goal to use none of my passes??

    @donna25trinity
    I understand the temptation!
    But YOU are in charge. I never want to re-activate my “overeating with abandon” tendencies, as I call them.

    I don’t like the name Pass Day for that reason because really, there are no pass days, really. If I overeat, I will need to under-eat another day...to maintain.

    And with Health as my goal, why would I want to give my body more than it needs on one day & then deprive it another?

    I track everything I eat whether I go over or not. Every calorie counts - for me.

    I have been leaning towards doing what a couple of others mentioned ... a weekly limit, but was not sure that was the letter of the law for UAC. The reason: when I do go over my limit one day, I do find I naturally eat less the next. I will continue to track daily & Make sure my weekly average is under my limit.

    would you pray for Mireya? Young woman hospitalized with serious pneumonia after - you know what...covid. Not doing well - in a medically induced coma.

    Yes! 🙏 Stay hopeful, she'll make it through! Please keep us posted, @dsgoingtodoit . So good to have you back here! 🌺

    Exercised: Yes - stationary bike for 20 minutes - my stationary bike is new, and I'm not loving it so far, but maybe it will grow on me once my body gets used to it - I hope my neighborhood is calm enough to take walks outside this weekend!
    Calories: Yes
    Tracked: Yes

    Pass Days Remaining: 2/3
    Pass Day 1: 1/5/21

    If it's your 🍑, then you may want to look at getting a gel seat or (sorry in advance...) ride it out.

    When I replaced the seat on my hybrid bike (not stationary), that changed everything!

    Exercise: yes, slow walking over 8 hours, plus disinfecting public areas due to the virus, plus carrying some heavy things for upper body strength

    Calories: yes, but I ate a lot of junk today, a warning sign. I've mostly steered clear of that type of food since I reached maintenance over a year ago.

    I remember this Chinese proverb I heard when I was a kid: If you don't change your direction, you're likely to end up where you're headed (Lao Tzu)

    Tracked: yes

    Pass days 1/3

    The quote is perfect for one of @RangerRickL's daily openers!

    And kudos on your workable exercise, I've been watching you log for months now and I'm consistently impressed. Not only are you keeping people safe but you've figured out how to get paid to exercise! That's something I've always wanted to do (without working in the fitness industry, per se).

    @MaltedTea, thanks for the tip! I'm going to give it a few weeks to see if I just get used to it, but a new seat may be in my future if I'm still sore after that!

    Thank for your kind words, @MaltedTea I'm inspired by your exercise. I'm working in a job I would never choose, but it is what it is for right now. Yes, there's lots of exercise on the side (I try to combine it with walking meditations so I come away with something for myself).

    I love that Chinese proverb. I heard it on the radio when I was fifteen years old (a million years ago) and said, "Whoa!"

    Will remember Mireya today and sending my best wishes to you for peace and strength.
