    @MadisonMolly2017 I've been watching this streak of yours as I catch up with my posts. Very inspiring!

    Work is still trying to keep me from being great: I stayed up WAY into the wee hours of the morning to finish a project.

    However, in keeping with this day's quote, I wouldn't allow myself to be defeated even though I was tired. While I did ZERO of my scheduled two-a-day workout, I did decide to do a hard stop at 11:38 pm because I knew I needed to get 20 minutes of SOME kind of exercise in before midnight. I chose dancing 😂.

    Did it, logged it then sat back down to finish my task which wasn't done til 3 am. So here's my late entry...

    ---|---|---|--
    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? YES | 💃🏾 (20) TOTAL: 20
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? YES | Base + 100
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? YES
    ---|---|---|---

    Personal Bonus: Did I meet my protein macro for the day (40%)? YES | 41%
    Personal Bonus: Did I meet my fiber micro for the day (35%)? NO | 32%
    Pass Days Used: (APR01)

    Thanks! Difficult the first 3 days & then again a few days ago, but SO much better than earlier in March! The beginning is always the most difficult for me.

    Thoughts and Goals for April:
    April has arrived and I am sitting here reflecting back on this month. It is the first month since September that I have closed the month with an “up”. That said, an up had to come at some point since at some point one is no longer trying/needing to lose weight, and I had passed my original goal back in January, I believe. The up on its own would be fine, but the habits, or lack thereof, that crept into my March are the concern. So, for the month of April, I will be focusing on returning to preplanning/pre-tracking as much as is possible and to not just thrown in the day it does not go as planned. I know that I know how to re-group and I need to make sure I find the time and energy for that. I want to up my cardio. Yes, I am “group walking” every day which burns calories, but honestly, I could walk at that pace for hours and hours without effort. I need to push myself, here and there, again. I will also be trying to maintain the social aspect of the group walks as well, so juggling all those time commitments will take a little focus. Lastly, I need to return to adding back exercises. I have not planked in a month, and rarely done exercises other than walking, running, or biking. So I need to figure out how to include bodyweight or dumbbell workouts. Here’s to April.

    Wishing everyone a great month!

    *** Sitting here as I write this, I have to wonder if posting my thoughts here this morning helped me to frame and get through the day. This morning, I did actually expect today to be a pass day, despite the slight optimism I expressed in my post. Ten minutes later, I decided to track a tentative day – carrot cake, stuffed shells and all. When I got done, I saw that even with every food included I could meet my calorie goals for the day. Portion control was the key. The plan was 90% accurate and the other 10% was adjusted on the fly. When I added something, I took something else away (sorry salad :P ). I enjoyed Easter with no pass today. The success feels good!

    Apple Watch TDEE: updated the following day – see spoiler

    *** Had an interesting moment today that I hope will help me to understand the benefit of what was accomplished these 6 months. Today, I got home from a short grocery shopping including two bottles of wine to bring to friends on Sunday. I hate using the elevator at the building so I take the two flights to our condo. I carried all the groceries at once, from the car, through the parking and up the two flights. Not hard, but I could feel the difference. As an experiment, I walked directly to the scale when I got in our unit to see how high a combined weight I now was. I was still almost 9 lbs less that what I weighed in September, and almost 24 lbs less than my high in 2001. Hopefully experiments like this will help me keep focus, and keep my maintenance going. Yo-yo-ing has been my tendancy.

    *** what a difference a day makes. So interesting seeing yesterday’s comment in light of how today went. Day started well by entering another 5K race and did well. Then guests failed to show on time and failed to communicate and threw off the days good intensions. Had been pre-tracked but that all got thrown away as the day evolved and I could not rapidly re-group.

    *** today, I faced dinner at a friend’s house and since cooking is not her strength, there was no way I could impose on her by asking what she was preparing. So I decided (wrongly) to just forfeit the day. Spent the day working on sealing 500 square feet of tile grout.

    *** Woke up to torrential rain. First rain here in months. Of course, this is the day after we spent the day applying grout sealant that could not get wet for 72 hours. So not only is the sealant wet, but apparently rain plus brand new screens creates some sort of black mud which is covering my no-longer-sealed grout. The day went to heck. No daily walk and, while spending the day re-cleaning tile and grout, made no others efforts that day.
