    This June I will DO at least:
    • 30 minutes of walking (treadmill or outside) per day
    • 5 servings of vegetables per day
    • 3 sessions of EPIC II program per week
    • 1 hour of unpacking/organizing activities per day

    Things haven't gone quite according to plan. We didn't get the TV setup until this past Sunday so no EPIC II until this week. I've done the treadmill and unpacking/organizing nearly every day. Still working on upping the vegetables though I've been good about having some at every meal which isn't something I did as much in the past. I don't usually eat a lot of fruit but local fruit is more abundant here than my previous state so I've been eating having more frequently over the past couple of weeks.

    Today was the first day that I am pretty sure I logged my water immediately after drinking it: 14 cups.

    I received extra motivation yesterday reading ¨Nature Wants Us to be Fat.¨ He writes about a biological ¨switch¨ related to fructose, sugar, uric acid, and salt, that makes humans enter a metabolic weight gaining/energy reducing mode similar to animal fattening up for winter or migration, which served to help humankind survive through droughts and famines. He says that being mildly dehydrated is one of the things that turns on the switch. He talks a lot about the fat storage mechanism of desert animals like camels in regards to how stored fat can be used to maintain us alive when there is a lack of water. Target 100 expressed the importance of hydration. This nephrologist/researcher explains the science behind the biology. A powerful one, two punch to convince me that for years I have ignored the advice to drink more water and being mildly dehydrated probably contributed a lot to my difficulty maintaining weight.

    It’s never to late to add a habit to the month I have noticed even with my spinning and rowing that my weight is stuck not a bad place to be but would like to shed 6 more by July 4 even have a mini challenge with my daughter to see if we can both get to our desired 5 lbs loss goal it’s not a who gets there first it’s a did you succeed challenge. I don’t walk with my buddy unless I am in the office as I have cut out unnecessary trips in due to gas at $5.08 a gallon so a long winded way to say I will work on a walk in my community 4/7 days that leaves me walk time at the office maybe my numbers will move if not at least I will get outside.

    I am a turtle in terms of weight loss speed Kate and can’t even imagine a goal of 5 pounds loss by July 4 😳 Gas prices here just dropped a few cents a litre. We are now at $2.069 CDN a litre. I used a cost converter and just learned we are paying the equivalent of $6.15 US$/US Gallon. No longer road trips for us this summer unless this situation changes. @snowshoe072

    Somehow I do not fully understand the instructions for this group. Are we supposed to be posting with some particular frequency to this thread?

    I am pleased with my progress on hydration. I have succeeded every day in my principal goal of drinking 16 ounces of water after my morning weigh in, tracking it, and setting an alert to schedule my next water break. I also have added several water breaks each day, depending on my schedule, so I have definitely succeeded in being more hydrated. For some reason, remembering to track it in MFP has been harder during the mid or later day, especially when I decided to have a drink before my next alert.

    I am also pleased that it does, indeed, seem to help me have less cravings and I also had a nice little whoosh of weight loss.
    Firstly, and most importantly, you have made excellent progress on working to make hydration a sustainable habit with strong triggers.

    Secondly, the crucial point is drinking the water, and knowing that you are creating a sustainable healthy habit, Recording it on MFP is a personal choice, but not essential.

    Thirdly, as @MadisonMolly2017 said, you choose how often you post here.

    Good to have you in the group.

    @themedalist you wrote: " you made my day to see your post! Welcome back and we have missed you! Totally understand though that life can get pretty crazy and we need to step away and focus on our families and other aspects of our lives. I’m just thrilled to see your post!"

    And @MadisonMolly2017 for your earlier words of welcome back also.

    This group is a soft landing spot that I am able to return to after life gets difficult or sometimes I am too busy, to have much time or energy to read and post. Thank you both for keeping this group going and for your understanding when I just honestly don't have it in me to spend time on the computer. Even if it is pleasurable to be here.

    Thank you both so very much for your kind words. Much was going on during those several months between some special family events/ prep for out of state family staying here, and for those coming by even if not staying with us, and so on. Also my own trying to figure out how to manage this arthritis and get things finished.

    @TerriRichardson112 congratulations on your one year anniversary (in May) of being in Building Healthy Habits group. I have enjoyed reading your many posts and interesting insights!

    @jamcnewman amazing insights and thoughts about not getting both long enough or good enough sleep. This too has been something that I have worked on and then I've let it slip away only to rinse and repeat over and over again. I liked your word picture for what it feels like without enough sleep. Very insightful. And something to go back to the basics again for.

    @ideas2 thank you for the intriguing information and ideas about hydration and the lack of maintaining a proper amount. During the last several months I have been finding ways to keep water more easily accessible to me to increase my water intake. I do feel bteter for it when I am more successful.

    As I mentioned before I'm back to using the FlyLady system to help me get back to or to get better with my daily housekeeping routines again, and also to help me get back to the tidy/ declutter habits that have been "misplaced" 🤦‍♀️ during the last several months.

    I did some quick reading of everyone's posts since the other week when I last posted. Well done everyone, and there were some great insights recorded that I want to re-read later on this week. I had some family surprise me that they were able to come in for Father's Day. It was great not to be going in circles trying to get the house picked up and/ or clean and tidy. I just did some last minute touch up and all was well!

    🦋 means that I completed what I needed or what I decided that I wanted or was able to do that day as I use an app for what to do next on the routine/ zone cleaning check list. I am not being rigid about this. I'm working on staying away from the all or nothing perfectionism trap that only derails me when I least expect it to, while doing as much as I am able to that day. Or to do what I want to do as I fit in some other different activities or errands.

    @texasgardnr - good to hear that the Fly Lady system is working for you! I had a similar situation today with my cousin stopping by unexpectedly and I wasn't in a panic about the house. I had to do a quick sweep since the cat brought in half of the outdoors with her, but other than that, it was all under control. I even had some fresh baked goods to offer him. :-)

    I’m in Week 2 of using a sleep mask and it’s been so helpful to getting more sleep. I’m still getting used to it, but I love not waking up before 5AM. I also like the nose cutout that allows some light to shine through. I think if I woke up in complete darkness, I would panic until I remembered the sleep mask. I hope you are enjoying yours, @MadisonMolly2017.

    @themedalist ❣️❤️❣️
    Your sleep habit this month AND the sleep mask you recommended have been life changing for me!

    I’m now able to go back to sleep in the morning (after bathroom break when the sky is bright!!) sometimes 20 minutes, today was over 2 more HOURS!!

    I’m planning to purchase 1-2 more in case they go out of business because I know I will use these the rest of my life! ❌⭕️❌⭕️

    I’ve also used it on full moon nights!! And occasional mid-afternoon naps.

    Best of all, I feel more rested, energetic, happier, etc.

    Things I like: Very silky-soft, large so even if it shifts, the light is still blocked, covered Velcro so it doesn’t snag on my hair PLUS once I set the correct size, I can just slip it over my head - very easy.

    Even came with a bag & a set of earplugs in a cute case!

    Added bonus, it makes my hair less frizzy as the mask rubs against my bedding rather than my hair 🌸🌸🌸

    Thank you❣️

    Maddie, this makes me SO HAPPY!!!

    It’s helped me as well. Amazing how much better we feel when we are getting sleep! I too love the softness and I also do what you do…find the right size and then just slip it over my head.

    Funny…it’s such a simple thing but it has such a big impact. I just always accepted that I wouldn’t get as much sleep in the summer as I do the rest of the year. Now I’m just shaking my head that I didn’t act sooner.

    I might also have to pick up a few more to have them on hand. Great idea! 💕

    Today was the first day that I am pretty sure I logged my water immediately after drinking it: 14 cups.

    I received extra motivation yesterday reading ¨Nature Wants Us to be Fat.¨ He writes about a biological ¨switch¨ related to fructose, sugar, uric acid, and salt, that makes humans enter a metabolic weight gaining/energy reducing mode similar to animal fattening up for winter or migration, which served to help humankind survive through droughts and famines. He says that being mildly dehydrated is one of the things that turns on the switch. He talks a lot about the fat storage mechanism of desert animals like camels in regards to how stored fat can be used to maintain us alive when there is a lack of water. Target 100 expressed the importance of hydration. This nephrologist/researcher explains the science behind the biology. A powerful one, two punch to convince me that for years I have ignored the advice to drink more water and being mildly dehydrated probably contributed a lot to my difficulty maintaining weight.

    Very interesting. Drinking more water has lots of upsides!
