    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes. 45 minutes from a new to me YouTube channel. HASFit. Great cardio and ab workout.
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Sort of. I wasn’t sure how to track a combo pizza and I ate homemade rice krispy treats. With that being said I will count as a pass day.
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes.
    2nd pass day used today.
    2 of 3 pass days used.
    I started a puzzle this evening.

    can you show us a picture of the puzzle? (jigsaw, i presume?)

    Pass day #1 today. Hubby’s birthday so I didn’t worry too much about cals. Logged at the end of the day and over goal but still under maintenance. Got in some shovelling, a walk and yoga.
    Spring is still soooo far off here. Lots of cold, dark days ahead. Getting outside helps some. Staying active, journaling, keeping a gratitude list, finding things to be hopeful about.

    Honesty is never TMI in my opinion, Chris @WhatMeRunning ... appreciate your openness. Your willingness to self-examine and to share those thoughts with us is a great benefit.

    @Bill70sStrong amazing!! My plan is to increase by 20 KM each event until I hit the full distance on my 4th time. You inspire me!

    Exercise? Yes
    Tracking? Weeeelllll.... about 98% of what I ate
    Calories? No, because that 2% was Girl Scout Cookies...
    I "ran" today, for the first time in a while. I spotted these two natives lazing in the wash.
    They had zero f***s to give about anybody on the paths, but... like every dog I've ever had, they seemed to sense as soon as I turned on the camera app and refused to look my direction. When I passed closer to them, after turning off the camera, they both looked up at me like "Stupid human..." :wink:

    Another pass day. I just couldn't be bothered. When I planned my day the night before I realized that we had an outdoor birthday party for 4 year olds to go to - you all know that my main trigger for overeating is standing around in the cold. So how about standing around in the cold for an hour next to a hot chocolate bar and a firepit with s'mores? It did not go well for my eating plan. And then we had takeout sushi for dinner which I think I did actually moderate very well. I made myself a plate of veggies to go with and had a moderate amount of sashimi and the correct <1/2 cup of rice. But I didn't feel like tracking it and I didn't.

    I think I am now getting the second wave of autoimmune activation from the booster shot and I am very tired and feeling overwhelmed by how tired I am. But I am up doing my usual morning routine anyway so that is good.

    @calvin20874 congratulations!
    @SummerSkier good question
    I don't normally get SAD, but the last 2 years winter has been a rough time. COVID winter with kids is rough. This winter I am struggling extra because I had mentally prepared that we would feel comfortable doing things inside, with vaccinated kids. But with omicron, we are not. My 9 year old is up for doing whatever outside, but my 5 year old just whines non-stop, which makes it get really old really fast.

    What I normally do that helps in the winter:
    - Take vitamin D (I actually do that all year long but especially important in the winter)
    - Just get outside. I usually love hiking in the woods with yak trax and cross country skiing and I was beginning to learn to downhill ski.

    Last year I injured myself cross country skiing and I am taking this year off all things with a strong all possibility, so that adds to the limited options.

    What I am going this year:
    - Still getting outside, but mostly 30 minute walks around the neighborhood
    - Daydreaming/planning summer vacations.
    - Letting the kids do a lot of screen time

    @Arc2Arc - that view is amazing. I have an itch to ski again, something I used to do regularly but haven’t in years.

    @WhatMeRunning - good for you for recognizing you need a little help and not being afraid to reach out for it. You are strong, insightful, and healthy, with stressful issues that would make anyone else crumble.
