    June Challenge Weigh In Day

    Age 44
    Height 5'4"
    SW 249 3/2020
    CW 225.4
    GW for June 218
    UGW 145

    6/1: 222 lbs
    6/8: --Mom's house; no scale
    6/15: 225 lbs - Mom's scale; unsure if real from high sodium this week or scale is just higher than mine
    Total month loss:

    Weekly goals:
    -Continue logging on MFP
    -Work out 5x per week – 3 cardio & 2 strength
    -64 oz of water each day

    Back to Mom's house this week. Just made things easier for the few days and one of her house projects is done. Now for the next guy to get scheduled. Starting to get on one of my projects for her house - going through my dad's things he stashed in the basement as he's likely won't be coming to get them so it's all mine. If I can get room down there, that would be the most helpful to her and me. The best and easiest was a box of boxes; yup that can go.

    @kelMee2 Absolutely. That's my life. I may not be perfect but eventually the scale will go down on it's timeline; not necessarily mine. Could I do things differently to help; sure but that's not really my life. I have to accommodate. I learned that with my last weight loss success and the anxiety I saw with it. It's slower this way but it mostly works for my sanity ha.

    So last week I tried to order one bunch of bananas with my groceries, but Instacart being how it do, the picker got me exactly one (1) banana. And it was green. Okay, fine. I left my solitary banana out on the counter for a while to ripen and figured I'd eat it this weekend. Then I remembered I also have oatmeal and eggs, so I decided to make a banana oatcake for breakfast since I haven't had it in a while - I think I posted about it somewhere on these forums a million years ago, might have been with an older account. I wanted to share the recipe again because if you like bananas and oatmeal you'll probably like this.

    - 46g (1/2 cup) instant oatmeal
    - 1 large egg (~50g give or take)
    - 70g banana (about half of a medium one)
    - 21g (~1 tbsp) honey
    - 1g (~1/2 tsp) cinnamon
    - ~20ml (a decent splash) of milk (I use dairy milk, you could probably use a nondairy alternative without issue, I haven't tried though)

    Mix all ingredients well in a microwave-safe bowl and nuke until cooked through. I did 1:30 total, in 30-second bursts. The egg gives it structure so it comes out more like a pancake or oatmeal flapjack than a bowl of oatmeal.

    1 serving, 368 calories, decent amount of protein (13g according to my diary).
