    @Tazaria87 super job at the get together. Have a blast at the fair.

    @lindamtuck2018 the DQ I go to still has creamsicle dip. Thank you very much for reminding me. I will get that today.

    My day is not going well at the start. Super lightheaded so far. I hope it improves.

    Last night was a success at my friend's house. Had one piece of all meat pizza and sat and chatted for a bit. Evaluated how I felt, and I was still hungry, so I grabbed one piece of cheese pizza. Ate that and then called it good. Stuck to my plan of just two! The kids had a blast playing together, it had been months since they'd seen each other! Same for me and my friend.

    Today we are heading to a county fair. I'm nervous about what food choices will be available but hopeful that I can navigate it well again! Should at least get lots of steps today!

    Steps 8/13 3575

    You are amazing! So mindful. I need to model myself after you while on vacation next week.

    Wow!

    I think they only did as a short term thing in Canada but I could be wrong. I am definitely going to check it out some day soon. I hope your dizziness goes away.

    @lindamtuck2018
    A surefire way to get more steps is to NOT forget the watch on the charger (like I did this morning) 😉.
    Other than that, I have been intentionally parking at the far end of where I'm heading and going out for a few minutes at lunch.

    Hi everybody. What a whirlwind of a week. We started school back in-person this past Monday. It wasn’t too bad for the most of the week. Thursday was an absolutely atrocious and scarring day, but I’m trying my hardest to move past it because in the end everything turned out fairly ok.

    @Megan_smartiepants1970 and @lindamtuck2018 I will probably post weekly steps on Saturdays, if that’s ok.

    PW: 163.8

    I’m happy to see the number coming back down. It had been on a upward trajectory, but like I said - being back at work helps keep me motivated to get my steps in, etc.

    Steps:
    8/9: 9,595
    8/10: 8,939
    8/11: 8,005
    8/12: 10,121
    8/13: 3,466

    Eventually I’ll get back to responding to people’s posts. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

    That is fine .... I am missing 8/8 ...we always start on a Sunday and end on a Saturday ...

    Good evening everyone. I hope you all enjoyed the first half of your weekend.

    @Jpedno I make homemade mcmuffins. Whole wheat eng muffin, 1 slice Canadian bacon, 1 egg. About 220 calories. I can add fruit or a slice of cheese. Good luck with the workouts and the cough. May one increase and one go away. You decide which. Lol

    @lindamtuck2018 thank you again for reminding me about DQ. I just got back. Unfortunately I got a medium when I ordered a small and my budget wouldn't hold a medium. I ate the ice cream to the cone and stopped, which is very hard. I love their cones.

    Check in for 8/14:
    Steps - 2856. I will get some when I pick up daughter in 30 minutes, but I'll take this amount.
    Calories - 1730. Changed some things around for the dip cone.
    Exercise - I got dizzy when on my feet more than 5 minutes all day. Started taking a multivitamin to get some iron replenished. Maybe that will help.

    @azkunk that happens. I jumped 4 lbs last weekend thinking I was doing well. It will pass.

    I'm ok with this. I've been sick and haven't been getting in the steps or the workouts. But I went to the gym today so that's a success. This cough is still lingering though.

    I dug out my copy of New Rules of Lifting For Women and am planning to start weight lifting with that plan that next week. In addition still to going to BodyPump class.

    Tomorrow I will grocery shop and meal plan for the week. I've done pretty good with that for the last two weeks so I want to continue. But I am getting a little sick of oatmeal for breakfast ... Need to add some more variety.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    @Megan_smartiepants1970 steps!
    8/12 8,405
    8/13 5,184

    I hope your cough gets better. I know personally I always gain weight when I am sick even when I was sick from covid. I love meal planning. Do you find it makes grocery shopping easier? It does for me. Good luck with your new weight lifting plan.

    Leaving it on the charger happens or in my case I forgot to charge it and it died in middle of the day. I like those strategies for increasing your steps.

    Awesome loss and steps! I can’t imagine teaching at the best of times let alone in the middle of a pandemic. I hope this week goes smoothly.

    I see a couple of positives. One you have lost over 20 pounds and two you did well this week. Keep aiming to meet those goals and the scales will move in the right direction.

    @rlaskey2 and @meagan_smartiepants1970 hugs to both of you and your families. I hope that no one develops covid and everyone recovers quickly.
    @lindamtuck2018 I hope your granddaughter heals quickly. Enjoy your long awaited trip with your husband to see loved ones and old friends. Hi
    @rwood566 hope you are feeling better.
    @red1185 stay safe at school. My sister teaches 3rd grade in a high transmission county in our state which forbids mask mandates and has laws in place that pretty much won’t allow schools going online. Cases are increasing here but state only reports data once a week. Due to fevers, I had to go through covid protocals and take a covid test. Negative. Just food poisoning from baby carrots. Had a temp of 103F second half of yesterday but no temps today. Yippee! Appetite and fluid consumption not quite back yet but so much better.
    Have a great Sunday!

    Thanks! This trip is just a few days at a cottage with my daughter and family. Mid September will be our big trip to Newfoundland to see our parents and other family.

    I think when the kids come over today we are going to DQ if I have enough calories. That sucks being dizzy like that. I hope the iron helps. Stay close to something you can hang on to when having a dizzy spell.

    Impromptu get togethers are the best. It’s awesome that you got up and worked out instead of blowing it off.
