    Rest day = Yoga.

    I was put on a muscle relaxer before bed and I had dreams that it would loosen up my hamstrings. This yoga session taught me I need to keep dreaming 😂.

    @mshawski doing just 10-15 mins of yoga every morning has truly helped my tight calves. The last couple of summers I had noticed that my calves just stayed tight ALL.THE.TIME. I figured it was from all the walking I was doing (especially my LONG walks!). Doing the "downward dog" and flexing those calves (I go up on tip toes and then back down; and then alternating feet doing the same) REALLLLY helped my calves eventually to loosen up. It didn't help immediately, it probably took a few weeks before I began to notice a difference. Perhaps look for a couple poses that specifically target those hamstrings and be sure to incorporate those into your routine! Don't give up! :)

    Yes xs three!

    2/3 pass days so far. And more to come.

    I just wanna pat myself on the back- it's taken a year, but I'm now almost completely consistent with some exercise every day. Cardio is a mainstay and I'm regularly doing strength training now too. Today I even got some good stretches in. My back and hips have been a bit sore.

    I'm 58, fat, have chronic pain issues, fall short often and modify, modify, modify, and I am heading for the best health of my life so far. haha
    I feel so rawr. <3

    THE IMPORTANCE OF TRACKING:

    I know that some of us hate to think that we might have to track our food for the rest of our lives, but tracking is one of the things that's so critical to our long term SUCCESS! It's NOT hard, it's NOT difficult, and as Maddie said last month, we should think of it as a "safety line", especially once we get to maintenance.

    Tracking seriously takes only minutes to do, (don't wait until the end of the day and then try to remember everything that you ate that day!!) And tracking helps us to spot issues or trends and (more importantly) to STOP them and turn them around QUICKLY!!

    Maddie @MadisonMolly2017 said that after 5 years of tracking every single bite, a little voice began to creep up in her head and say “I’m sick & tired of tracking.” But just hearing that little voice in her head made alarm bells go off.... Danger!! Danger!! 💀💀💀

    Tracking can help us to look at saturated fat or even sodium consumption, and keep those numbers where they should be. Tracking may very well be one of the most important techniques for us to master!

    We've all heard of folks that lose weight & can maintain without tracking. But experienced people - in this group - who have kept their weight off for several years without yo-yo'ing - all say that they still track!!

    For me personally, I've spent almost a year and a half losing 60 lbs.... and I have NO desire to have to go through that again! If tracking my intake every single day will help me to catch a "slow creep" and turn it around quickly and painlessly, then tracking (for the rest of my life) is what I'll do!!

    Please share your perspective & experience with tracking.

    What are you working on at the moment regarding "tracking"?


    **(I've used much of what Maddie @MadisonMolly2017 posted last month regarding tracking.) Maddie, you're such an inspiration to this group, and it's also very impressive that you've just recently turned around what I like to call a "slow creep" of weight gain. High five!! <3 We appreciate you!

    Ty, I needed to hear this today.

    Pass day for me.
