    Tuesday
    1. Stay below 1100 calories
    2. Do dumbbells 20 reps
    3. Buy Stevia and salad stuff
    4. Learn how to use the quote feature!

    So far I learned the quote feature and I bought Stevia and salad stuff. I'm at 1108 calories which is not too bad because I have exercise tonight. So I ate back eight of those calories. So far so good.

    I was reading today about how 1100 calories is very low. But I am older, and very sedentary especially with this bum knee. I'm retired so I only leave the house twice a week or so. So I think I'm alright.

    Well I never decided how to handle eating back calories so I gave in to the cookies and ate back some exercise calories. The calorie numbers aren't so bad, but I should be eating better food.

    When I let the dog out at night, and I am standing around waiting for him, then he gets a cookie and I want my cookies! There's got to be a way to do that ritual differently.

    JFT for: Monday, 5-2
    1. Eat breakfast/take morning pills :)
    2. 8 C water :)
    3. Do a home workout and track it :(
    4. 10,000 steps total :(
    5. Big salad for at least one meal :)
    6. Track food :(
    7. Do one selfcare activity :) toenails
    8. Do meal prep :)
    9. Finish setting up new security system :)

    Well, Monday was a bit of a wash--still don't have the medication that I need and I am really tired. It turns out that my local lab DID THE WRONG TEST three weeks ago, so insurance will not approve the prescription. So I am going to drive into the city today and have the big research hospital do it correctly. The test takes a week to process...very frustrated!

    JFT for: Tuesday, 5-3
    1. Eat breakfast/take morning pills
    2. 8 C water
    3. 7500 steps
    4. Do one selfcare activity

    JFT Tuesday 3rd May

    Stay under maintenance yes
    Only one snack yes
    back exercises yes!
    Foot exercises yes
    Walk 20 minutes
    Solicitor meeting yes
    2 more house viewings yes
    Visit injured friend yes, lovely catch up
    Pass on some of the stuff I've sorted yes

    I know I need to do more core exercises for my back stability. But I hate getting down on the floor and doing them. So I think I'll add them to my May challenge, hopefully I'll feel obliged to do more!

    My walk didn't go as planned. I stopped in the country on my way to friend's house, hoping to walk in a lovely place with centuries old oak trees, fresh green beech trees and loads of bluebells. Well, it was still lovely, but raining and very grey! I will go back on a better day. I'd hoped to walk again in the evening but family stuff took up my time.

    JFT Wednesday 4th May

    Stay under maintenance
    Only one snack
    Back exercises
    Foot exercises
    Walk
    Get on with outstanding jobs (I have a list)

    MAY Challenge
    Walk minimum 150 minutes per week

    1. Stay below 1100 calories - kinda
    2. Do dumbbells 20 reps-yes
    3. Buy Stevia and salad stuff-yes
    4. Learn how to use the quote feature!-yes

    So as far as staying below 1100 calories on exercise days, I can eat back half the calories but no cookies. I just don't need them on top of the chocolate I eat. But it's a new rule so Monday doesn't count as a miss.

    Wednesday
    1. Eat less than 1100 calories
    2. Bake a cake for my Aunt
    3. Walk a little bit
    4. Work on my to-do list

    I've found that eating back exercise calories (I eat back about 1/2) really helps me stick to my plan. If not I get hangry and cave into the cravings. Good luck.

    1100 cals is a hard goal, especially if you don't eat back some. I'm short and have a sedentary job so my cal requirements to lose weight are low also, but I couldn't deal with a max of 1100 every day. I have 1100 cal days, but I also have 1300 cal days. I loses best with that range 1100-1300. It keeps me sane-ish.

    Good luck!

    Happy Tuesday y'all!

    Tuesday was ok. There were homemade chocolate chip cookies at home so I definitely didn't eat the best yesterday, but I did stay within maintenance even with the cookies and Chinese for dinner. Weight was steady today despite the sodium. Didn't ride or walk due to weather and general laziness.

    Today, I am going to go get my thyroid levels checked. I've been too busy to do it, but I have an appointment upcoming and need to figure out if I'm off kilter.

    Was up late helping V with math last night. She was stressing, but I think we got through it. I did have to do some refresher reading, but then it all came back to me. Pre-calc was a long, long time ago. I was actually rather proud of myself and enjoyed figuring it out. I am such a geek...

    Today I don't have much planned. Hopefully I'll get my training walk in today if the rain holds off. Other than that, just work stuff.

    Weather alert: The sun is shining!!! B) People are definitely in a better mood today. LOL

    @Anniesquats100 For me, I would never survive on 1100 calories per day, I'd be way too hangry. I always allow myself to eat back exercise calories. In fact, that is how MFP is designed to work, along with your weight loss goal. I have mine set to 1# per week and aim for zero net calories when I exercise. Btw, I'm 64 yrs old, average height & have a desk job. The quality of food is also something I aim for (less processed food & sugar, more fruit & veggies, watch the sodium). Portion control is key for me.

    Recap 5/3 T
    1) PT exercises before work :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks / workplace noon hike at HeNisRa Park (may be canceled due to rain) = 7.3K 23 floors 13/14 (1.5hrs at dinner)
    3) Hubby/I couples dinner with P&B 5:30 at Mexican restaurant: 1 adult beverage, no/limit tortilla chips & enjoy dinner / guesstimate for food log / net calories not crazy red / 96 oz. water :p 1 margarita (so good!), not too many chips, ACP shrimp for dinner. Had troubles logging food accurately on MFP, not really sure how I did. Oh well, it was a fun time. 80 oz. water.
    4) GA-S testing & F&Ds / prep webinar summary forms for W & Th / Facebook Live video / emails current = 4/4
    5) Schwan's delivery ~ late delivery, left in freezer bag while we were gone :) / make hummingbird syrup :)& hang feeder too cold overnight / clean suet feeder & fill with oranges / find :)& fill oriole feeder w/ jelly / start grocery list / another ta-da if time ~ minor again but TA-DA!
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / pray & Calm / 6:00 alarm (dog walk before work) :s 2.5/6

    JFT 5/4 W
    1) PT exercises before work :smiley: had wanted dog walk but temp was 31F when I woke & I don't want my knees stressed by the temps as well as distance
    2) Walk dog 3 miles after work
    3) Move hourly / stairs breaks / pace in office during 2hr webinar
    4) Net calories < 200 red / 96 oz. water
    5) GA-S testing & F&Ds / webinar 10-12 / complete, pdf & digital sign webinar summary form / submit form with CPE cert if rec'd today / review OnBase updates, register for training if nec.
    6) Hang hummingbird feeder / fill w/ jelly & hang oriole feeder / clean suet feeder, fill w/ oranges & hang / start grocery list / wash dishes / another ta-da?
    7) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / Voltaren / pray & Calm / 6:15 alarm (PT exercises 1 set, final PT appt. 8:30)

    May Exercise Challenge:
    Goal 1: PT exercises 4-5 days per week
    Week 1: :smiley::smiley:
    Goal 2: 3 mile dog walks, up to 5 days per week by end of May if knees permit
    Week 1: :smiley: 3.06

    About me: Carmela
    Height 5'4"
    64 yrs old
    Reside in Green Bay, WI, USA

    2022 Goals: mainly updates from the last two years
    1) Weight 150#
    2) Plan meals most days & prelog meals/snacks whenever possible on MFP
    3) Post weekly weigh-in on JFT for accountability. Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I track daily on a separate app (for the visual). My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale.
    4) Take measurements & log on MFP every month end ~
    • 1.31.22 forgot to measure & log (DDS 8:20, quick stops at bread store & grocery essentials, then to mom & dad's for her bday)
    • 3.1.22 (still recovering from flu 2.23-2.25)
    • 3.31.22 maintaining not gaining
    5) Exercise 5-6x per week (minimum 4x) ~ mostly walking dog, treadmill in winter, but include weights/my home version of circuit & other x-training
    • Started PT (physical therapy) exercises 1.28.22 due to overuse of arthritic knees
    6) Participate in race or challenge events hopefully fewer virtual this year ~
    • started MapMyWalk app You Vs. the Year 1,022km challenge on Jan. 1
    • Frenzy on the Fox (River Trail) 5K on 1.21.22 ~ untimed event, per MapMyWalk 53.47 & ave. pace 16:30, frigid this year with wind chill at zero
    • registered for Seroogy's Valentine 5K on 2.5.22 ~ medico nixed race b/c inflammation in knee due to overuse & my arthritis = sad me but good for my knee
    • will register for Bellin 10K on 6.11.22 ~ first time in person since 2019
    • will register for Packers 5K when July details announced
    • will register for Bellin Women's Pink Pumpkin 5K when Oct. details announced
    • will register for Run for the Hill of It (trail) 5K when Oct. details announced
    • watch for other events to add
    7) Be considerate and loving to hubby and have fun together ~ excellent goal last two years to be continued
    8) Make efforts to keep in touch with parents, siblings and friends (most live in other towns or states) ~ keeping this goal as well
    9) Continue to declutter bedroom, home office, former work from home space (a/k/a dining room) and basement
    Word for 2022: Tenacity ~ persistent determination; the mental strength to resist opposition, danger or hardship

    Well tomorrow is my aunt's birthday and we are going over for cake at 2:00. So that will be very difficult to fit into 1100 calories. I will make an effort, because I will have exercise calories to spend as well. But I also don't want to binge sugar on an empty stomach then crash while I'm horseback riding. So no promises for Thursday. Except that I will do 30 reps of my dumbbell routine.

    I have been eating way over any calorie goal for a few months now. I don’t know why I’m struggling, but at least I’m logging regularly and when I start getting the goals I have met consistently I’ll start limiting the calories as well.

    I find I lose better when I eat a little more than 1200 calories a day. I have never lost much of its 1200 or lower, when I was being consistent and lost so well, I ate my exercise calories back.

    @pridesabtch - I hated math. I find it sort of fun now, but just the basics used in accounting.
