Let's show some love to ourselves by selecting a goal that is going to further your health in some way, whether it be physical health or even mental health.

You could make sure your electrolyte levels are better.
Or commit to more exercise.
Or decide to forgo a bad habit you KNOW is hampering your health from being what it could.
Or start a good habit you've been putting off.
Or simply continue to focus on whatever health-conscious New Year's Resolution you made for last month.

And of course, hit dem Basics! :wink:
The Basics? Glad you asked:smirk:
  • Planning ahead!!!
  • Staying under carbs
  • Staying under calories
  • Logging and measuring
  • Getting in exercise/movement if that's one of your goals
  • Keeping an eye on electrolyte levels
  • Getting enough water
  • Planning ahead!!! Oh, wait. I said that already? Yes, I frickin' did. Because you must! "Failing to plan is planning to fail."


:heart: Love your health by "sprinting," (focusing hard and giving your all) for the whole month. It's only 28 days. :heart:
You've got this!

    For February I will retain my logging, carb and calorie deficit goals plus commit to more exercise. I want to add something else but can't put my finger on it just yet. Maybe I just need to retool and define what I have a little better.

    My goals will stay consistent from January with staying under calorie goal and at least 100g of protein a day. I’ll continue to watch carbs but don’t have a daily goal to meet. I’d like to shed a pound a week.

    My goal is to follow my plan every day. EVERY day. No cheat meals (which turn into cheat a cheat day, then a cheat weekend...). 28 days at or under my carb goal!

    Ok! 7:30 PM here so I feel safe posting results for day one!

    Carbs: 11 grams ✅
    Exercise: C210K W1D1———-AGAIN (I need to actually finish this dumb thing for once) ✅
    House: Cleaned out the garbage can drawer. Put me right off dinner ;)

    After my “ease in and don’t freak yourself out, Kathy” January, I reluctantly stepped on the scale today Apparently I weigh 32 pounds. Reader, I do not weigh 32 pounds. Or kilos.God, I hope it’s not stones. Amazon to the rescue! Anyone got a scale rec?

    On the positive side, I was down 2 inches in high waist, 1 inch in lower abdomen, one inch in hips and one inch in left thigh ( I only measure the left side because I’m lazy). So there’s that.

    2/1 was super good!

    Lean Beast - done, plus 30 min of combat and a full hour of stretching
    Daily Calories - done 1,236
    100g protein - done 109

    Normally Mon is a maintenance day, but I took Sun instead this week because I wanted to hang out and day drink and watch the snow...so today is a loss day.

    For Feb I will focus on similar things that I did in Jan.

    Every day I will:
    1. Track everything
    2. 55-70+ G protein
    3. Under 50 net carbs
    4. 1,200 - 1,300 calories (I expanded this a bit as it’s hard to stay within a 50 cal range 😊)
    5. 64 oz water/decaf liquids
    For the month:
    6. Lose 5 pounds

    SW: 209.8
    GW: 204.8
