    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes, still under.
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes

    The numbers are higher than I thought they would be. I was up and out early for a dental appointment, had a crown put in and from there just kept running around. Besides, the weather was beautiful here today. My mouth was sore so I made soup from leftover veggies, spinach, swiss chard and carrots, and added shredded chicken it was very green but tasted delicious. And now my fridge has room. Overall, a really good day. I weigh in tomorrow and have no clue what to expect ~ fingers crossed.

    My calorie rule for January UAC
    Defining, for myself more than anything, what is the definition of my daily calorie goal. For Oct and Nov, I used 1430 and not eating back exercise. December, I raised that to 1480 with no additional calories for exercise. For January, I am going to try a blended rule; either Food calories under 1480, or Net calories (ie Food minus exercise) under 1200. So, if my exercise burns less than 280 on a given day, there is no added calories. BUT, if I exercise more, I have the option additional food OR if I overeat, I have the option of exercising more to not use a pass day. This flexibility was not something I allowed in my previous rounds. Once I exceeded my goal calories, regardless of my exercise burn. Also, I am defining that I am using the MFP estimate for the caloric burn from exercise. I know I could get different numbers elsewhere, but I am going to use only the one source – good or bad.

    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes - low impact aerobics class. First time in over 6 months. It was fun.
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes - Even went out for lunch and rather than fries had a side salad with my sandwich. It is often the little things that help us keep under budget.
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes

    Tracking: good
    Calories: under my limit
