    I haven't been posting. But my nose HAS been to the grindstone diet/exercise-wise. Dealing with MFP issues here plus helping deal with a user harassment situation, homeschooling, and being severely annoyed with events in my country... :weary:
    Anyway, I'm being good.
    I hope to be back regular posting soon.

    Calories and carbs 👍🏻 Good day for being under on both categories. Had a great move day as well which is surprising because I slept awful and didn’t exercise until later in the day.
    Protein over 100g👍🏻 I probably could have had more protein to feel more full rather than supplementing with nuts after dinner.

    It’s been a good week but the challenge will be the weekend. I’ll not be surprised if I step on the scale early next week and my body says nope, not letting it go...

    I'm still here. Flaring so just doing the best I can. Food is all good, exercise and even hitting 5000 steps very hit and miss. Went to Saturday market along the road this morning, normally a 10 min walk. Whole excursion took me an hour because I was moving so slow :lol::cry:

    I'm feet up, and trying to think of the easiest low cal things to feed myself today (unfortunately ate the last piece of mushroom and spinach pie/quiche thing a couple of nights ago :\).

    Calories and carbs were both a bit over today thanks to my saboteur ordering appetizers with our carry out then claiming he needed help. I didn’t want to see it go to waste so helped out a bit and now am regretting it with a nice stomachache. I closed my rings so should still have a deficit.

    Protein was good at about 147g for the day. It was so nice to be ‘back on the wagon’ this week with no cravings and the other adverse effects of eating carbs.

    Calories just a bit over but carbs were good and protein came in over 100g again. I closed all my watch rings but was feeling off today. Not sure if I’m feeling the calorie reduction or if it’s something else. I felt like I hadn’t eaten enough after dinner so had a snack and felt somewhat better. We’ll see how things go tomorrow- may be a rest day then I can get back after it on Monday.

    Ran on the treadmill this weekend, haven't done that in quite awhile. Went to supper on Friday night and I had a stuffed chicken breast with a garden salad. Thats my plus for the weekend but thats mostly it. I did not do great with my food yesterday and I didn't really track.
    Not bad up til then though. Will do better today!

    Calories and carbs under goal 👍🏻
    Protein over 100g 👎

    My carbs were a bit higher than the rest of the week but not bad overall. Protein was just under 100 so not too worried. I had an okay move day but did not close that ring on my watch as I felt I needed some rest. Still feeling a bit blah but think it is the weather, work and decrease in calories. Will keep an eye on the calories as I may need to bump up a bit.
