    10/20 - 159.6 - No hugs needed. I promise. There it was and there it went! Not too worried. Last night's dinner didn't thaw out as planned so we had to switch dinners. Tonight was supposed to be pizza night (Thursday Night Football) and last night smoked chicken thighs. Instead, pizza last night and thighs tonight. I wasn't going to hit calorie goals anyway, so yesterday was a bust. At least it all happened in one day and today I can focus on getting back to it! I DID just finish a 10 minute rowing workout (with 10 minutes for warmup/cooldown) finally so feeling more positive about hitting today's goals. I also love my new Fitbit with the exercise option of "rowing machine". My old Fitbit didn't have that and I had to log using 'workout' and maaaaybe remember to change it to 'rowing machine' in the app after I finished. Lunch is leftover homemade bierrocks which I had frozen from a few weeks ago. Unsure sides with dinner, but I'm pre-logging what I can to ensure I have some wiggle room. And I'm not hungry right now which bodes well for fasting until lunch. Now if I can manage today's positivity and goal-focused mindset through the weekend

    Previous Day's Comments
    10/14 - It's very tiny, but it's a drop! I was over calories but under maintenance yesterday so I was expecting a bump up. BF had requested dinner be a meal I had made myself for lunch one day (he tried it then and loved it). It's a bit of a calorie bomb despite all the veggies. Brunch was also a bit of a splurge thinking it'd hold me over until dinner. Unfortunately I needed a small snack which pushed me over. Today I'm going to ease into a rowing workout since I think my body is readjusted and ready enough to get back into more challenging workouts. Likely a 5 or 10 minute one, though, so as not to overdo it. Also aiming for a less calorie-dense brunch to allow for a mid-afternoon snack to hold me over. Completely unsure of dinner but the weekend always gets me so I'm trying to set myself up strong to make it through the weekend without a huge gain (bloat may be another thing, but I can handle that over an actual gain)
    10/15 - DNP
    10/16 - DNP
    10/17 - Renovation work all weekend on Fam's house. Once again couldn't keep up water no matter how hard I tried. I'm back on the routine today with work so hopefully it'll drop off in a day or two. Just completed a 20 minute full workout (warm up and cool down included) on the rowing machine. Tonight's dinner is a garlic parmesan pasta with chicken. Crock pot meal but BigBro liked it the last time I made it so I said I'd make it again for him. Will be careful early in the day to avoid overeating. Logging that as soon as I'm done typing this up so I know what I have to work with. Hoping to fast as long as possible but we shall see how my body reacts to my first big workout in weeks when it comes to requiring fuel.
    10/18 - MFP is all kinds of funky. It doesn't recognize my login when I try to log food, but it allows me to log in when I post? Oh well, logging works on my phone app at least. Not sure the uptick. I drank all my water and was 427 calories under yesterday (297 from exercise). I didn't work out this morning, I had a rough night tossing and turning and simply was not feeling it. Most, I'm assuming, was due to the dog hogging all my blankets most of the night (as soon as I'd get them back and fall asleep, she'd steal them again). Hopefully tomorrow is better. Also had the unfortunate realization that I thought today was Wednesday and it is, in fact, only Tuesday. More time to get back on track and drop some of this weight before the weekend upends me again, I suppose. Not sure dinner tonight. I have leftovers from last night's dinner for lunch. Still fasting and hoping to hold on to that until lunch if I can without getting grouchy. Or BF telling me to eat because my stomach is rumbling so loud it's distracting him hahaha it definitely happened yesterday. And it's growling at me as I type (though I don't feel hungry at all so I'm ignoring it and BF is on a work call so he can't hear it). Hopefully chugging this water will quiet it and get me back on track since I'm a tad behind without having the workout to spur my thirst on. Hope today is wonderful for you all!
    10/19 - There it is, that drop I've been hoping for! Now to hold on to it. No workout this morning, I woke up mid-dream again and it took nearly a half hour to convince myself out of bed. Still a tad groggy, but better. I was over my goal by 14 calories due to lack of movement, but still in a big enough deficit. Not sure dinner tonight but lunch is leftover tacos. Wish I had some spinach or lettuce to make a taco salad instead, but alas, I do not. Quite hungry this morning to the point of feeling a little light headed so I went ahead and had something small to break my fast. Much improved now, thankfully. EDIT: My computer decided to panic and die on me before I could post and MFP is being a turd all around by giving me issues both on the computer and on the app. Think I'm good now, though. At least it saved my draft! Today will likely be a bust food-wise simply because of breakfast. Going to try for some extra movement in the coming hours to make up for it. I currently only have 23 calories left in my budget, oof! If I'm able to keep it below 1800, though, I should be at or below maintenance which shouldn't pose a problem.

    10/14 - 177.2
    Still coughing and blowing with a cold, and I just want to sleep, but off I go to walk/run some energy off the pup. Then maybe I’ll go back to bed!

    10/15 - 177
    Feeling a little better today, so off for a walk with Rory pup.

    10/16 - 178
    Ooops. Yep, I did some emotional eating, some of it quite salty. Onward.

    10/17 - 177.2
    Ok, now to drop out of the 77s for good!

    10/18 - 176.2
    Whoa! That’s a nice surprise! Especially since I made brownie last night and ate one. But I was still close to my calories goal, so all good, I guess. Now to keep going.

    10/19 - 176.4
    Sticking mostly to the plan, and I’m finally getting my macros closer to recommendations from GenoPalate, which is based on DNA and which recommended I eat more whole carbs and less fat than I was eating. I’m finding it hard to change that balance, but am slowly getting closer. I’m curious to see if it makes an obvious difference.

    10/20 - 177
    Salty food yesterday, and a little too much of it, I think. And some stress eating. It’s ok.
