    • coming up short on my steps
    • coming up short on the number of workouts
    • nutrition is more intentional: had 3x meals out this week and had a few drinks 1 night: need to respect my deficit goal more

    Weight loss Goals:
    1st GW: 220 The lowest weight I got to when I last lost significant weight.
    2nd GW: Onderland 1st, maintain for a few weeks then
    3rd GW: 186 overweight but not obese
    4th GW: 150 lbs. Healthy weight Then evaluate what weight is best for me. I just want to get to a healthy weight for me.

    Goals:
    Get 8+ glasses of water, log in calories daily, get enough sleep and stay under my calorie goal. ✓ for the early part of the week anyway
    Up N.E.A.T. ✓
    Get regular exercise:
    1-2 strength training a week ✓
    5 days of walking ✓✓✓
    Wait to have breakfast until I feel hungry while I am working remotely. ✓
    Up my vegetables and make sure I have fruit daily ✓

    I started the week well last week drinking alot more water and getting exercise in. Yesterday I didn't drink enough water or get exercise but NEAT was probably relatively high. It will be a busier week with going into the office on Tuesday for the 1st time and a big Drs appointment on Thursday. Hopefully I can keep up the progress with weight loss going though.

    We set a family (immediate) to do spreadsheet in which we all try to get at least 1 thing done a week/weekend. So that was what I was doing yesterday. Also my siblings and I are stepping up our monitoring of our mother. She has stepped up her assistance level at her retirement community where she is living.

    Hope we all have a great weekend.

    @AlexandraFindsHerself glad your fingers are better and you are making progress with weight loss again as you wanted.

    @itisjessdarling nice vacation progress

    @girlinkaz I’m impressed how you are turning a setback (lock down) into a win by making healthy foods and getting more exercise.

    @wanderlight and @strong_and_healthy4me The 1st time I started to have knee issues was after a free session with a trainer at my gym. My knee went out after that and it hasn’t been the same since. Yes I have arthritis in my knees but it didn’t really bother me until after that.

    @sargemarcori glad you are having such a great week.

    @VickyEltonGreen and @JuneyCleaves Congratulations on reaching Onderland!

    @JNettie73 looks like progress on more than one front.

    nice catching up with all of your posts

    I went up a pound since yesterday, lol. I relaxed a bit yesterday (though i was careful to still eat less than I burned) and part of that was a very salty but delicious pesto on my sandwich.

    @JuneyCleaves Thank you!! It wasn't easy at first. I used to take 50+ minutes to do the 25 minutes workout with a lot of pausing the videos etc. I still follow Tanya for the modified versions. You can try one of his more dancing ones (Hip Hop Abs) or just any others and definitely modify to your comfort level.
