    Good evening all. I hope you all stayed warm today.
    Check in for 10/12:
    Steps - 13601. Needed them all to stay warm. I have lost all of my insulation.
    Calories 1663.
    Exercise - 5.7 mile walk in 1:45. It was at 8am and the temp was in the low 50s. Wore shorts and a tee. Brrr.

    Good luck with your appointments, @Poobah1972 and @Beautyofdreams.

    @shortyjmorgan1 with that soup, can it be vegetable juice? That is all I can find in low sodium.

    @Megan_smartiepants1970 I hope you keep getting better.

    Yes it can. The nice thing about the recipe is you can use vegetable juice or the tomato and it comes out almost the same. I used half vegetable and half tomato when I tired it

    Hope your doctors appointment went well yesterday and your pain is getting better.

    @littleflutterby
    Fantastic loss!

    @tahm42
    Covid is a terrible virus. I am glad things continue to improve. Will they give you a lung function test soon? It’s been 10 months since I had Covid and I still have headaches and memory problems. I had my last appointment with the Covid doctor in August. I see the doctor for my memory in 2 weeks and I am still waiting on the neurologist appointment.

    @Tazaria87
    It is great you have your dad to lean on. Maybe you guys can do a daily check in with each other. Didn’t you for a while try a different dance video everyday? Can’t remember if it was you or some else.

    @888Angie888
    Another great day of meeting goals.

    @luccianaff
    I am getting an injection in my spine on Thursday which will hopefully give me some relief. You are killing it with your bingo card. The fruit one is going to be the hardest for me. Awesome NSV!

    @Megan_smartiepants1970
    Sorry you had such a rough day! Welll done on the bingo! That recipe sounds delicious.

    @Beautyofdreams
    I definitely understand stress eating. Hopefully, today you get a definitive answer on what is going to happen. I know you will adapt because if there is one thing I have learned about you is that you are the strongest person I know.

    @shortyjmorgan1
    Recipe looks good. Was it you that posted the recipe for autumn casserole? I have made it a few times. You must be getting close to a full card with bingo.

    @Jpedno
    Great job on tracking and eating well! Snow, such a dirty word. Good luck with the weight class.

    @jayenguk
    Awesome loss!

    @rwood566
    That’s a fantastic walk!

    @Bluetail6
    Wow! Look at those vigorous intensity minutes. You are amazing!

    @rlaskey2
    Great steps! I am terrible if I skip a meal for eating junk later in the evening. Great job exercising!

    Tuesday check in
    ✅Steps 11k daily (steps and converted steps)
    280/500 Zone minutes
    ❌Stay within calories
    ✅ Track food accurately

    I am getting an injection in my back tomorrow. I was shocked I got the appointment so fast. I am both happy and extremely nervous at the same time. They use an X-ray for guidance when doing the injection but it is still near my spine. I can’t exercise the day of the injection and for 2 days after. Also, they are in the process of changing the rules here at the pool. I submitted my proof of vaccination this morning and I am waiting on getting a key for the pool. Hopefully, I will be able to get there today.


    Food was bad yesterday. My anxiety has been high lately and of course I reach to food for comfort. Got to change that.

    Happy Wednesday!

    That was me! I started doing dance videos last winter cuz my daughter (age 2 at the time) didn't like the cold and I stopped walking outside with her. I was trying a new video every day, starting with the oldest, and saving the ones I liked! I stopped doing the videos though, when the weather got warm again.

    Yes ma'am. It is my favorite. The apples and the nutmeg give it just the right touch of fall.

    ✔️Steps 18,610
    ✔️Track
    ✔️Meditate
    ✔️No hooch
    ✔️ Positivity

    Although I have been technically within calories this week, I have been eating back a significant portion of my exercise calories. Not sure how it will play out with the scale this week?

    Happy Wednesday 🌻

    I have been dipping into mine too. I find when I eat over half back I will gain.

    Question for Fitbit users

    My Fitbit keeps losing my heart rate when I am doing my pool workouts. Anyone else have this trouble? I keep the band as tight as I can for my workouts. Any suggestions? Maybe it’s a sign to get the Apple Watch.

    @lindamtuck2018 I'm so happy you will be able to get your shot so soon! Hoping it helps you a bunch.

    Completed more of the bingo!

    Here is my recipe for my morning smoothie. 😁
    4elz90cmadxt.png

    A tip for increasing activity is every time you go to the bathroom do a few bodyweight exercises. Like squats, calf raises, arm circles, standing push ups, etc. If you even do 5 each time you will have a good amount by the end of the day. ☺️

    We got out first snow of the season. It warmed up and its all melted already. So not ready for snow.
    Today has been productive. Back to working out!
    I did Legs day 8,
    Stretching legs 12 min
    Abs day 7 and 8
    Chest and triceps 33 min 💪

    You are still in the green! Great job getting your water in. I add ice tea drops to mine. What flavour do you use?

    @Jpedno
    Sounds like a great exercise day! Vegetarian chili is something I want to try. My husband is a meat and potatoes type of guy so meatless meals are so hard to fit in my week.

    @rwood566
    Awesome gym session! I hope the dizziness goes away and stays away. It’s great you gave blood as it could save a life. You made me laugh about the calves.

    @Bluetail6
    Three lines! That is amazing! I really believe you can get a full card.

    Linda yes I am glad to still be in the green! As for my water I use crush flavor packets for the most part. I will switch it up sometimes. I like the fact they only have about 5 calories a pack. That is only 20 calories for the whole gallon for me.
