    2/06 - 163.2 - Yesterday was a struggle. The pup had the pukes approximately 4-7am. Then I finally got to fall asleep on the couch only for BF's alarm to go off. I'm still exhausted haha! I'm also so sore from all the heavy lifting this weekend that I can't move a single muscle without cringing in soreness pain. I made the decision to forego my workout this morning. Thinking about it, 2 full days of moving a house is like 2 full days of strength training/lifting weights. And I did a workout Thursday and Friday. My body needs a rest day somewhere! I might skip tomorrow's, too. Just do yoga tomorrow and Wednesday (my scheduled rest day) and resume workouts on Thursday/Friday. They're all moved in so no more heavy lifting that I know of on weekends. One thing I will say: I'm proud of myself for logically thinking about it and not just saying "its Monday, I'm tired, no workout" like I would have previously. I hit snooze on my alarm and used that time to really think things through before making the decision and getting up (I almost went ahead and slept in if it wasn't for the pups realizing I was awake and getting a little crazy).

    Previous Day's Comments
    2/01 - I'm happy with that tiny little drop. I cut it really close on calories yesterday and was honestly worried I'd be up again. Today will be another day which staying in calories will bring a challenge. I've already eaten breakfast since dinner was suuuuuper early and I was beginning to feel nauseous. Yoga this morning, just 15 minute easy morning wakeup practice. Will need to really pay attention to my watch's reminders to get up and move. And then move extra today. Not only to keep warm, but to give myself a little wiggle room in calorie department. Will see if BF wants to make chicken noodle or chicken and dumplings tonight for something cozy.
    2/02 - Well, if I keep losing 0.1 at a time, I'll barely miss my goal of 161.x but I'll be a pound lighter than last round's end weight which isn't a bad thing nor would I be upset. Big splurge dinner of chicken and dumplings served in homemade bread bowls. I'm super proud of yet another bread-baking related accomplishment (why must it be on my "only eat sometimes" list again? I love baking it). No clue lunch, as usual or dinner except that I'm in charge, eek. The pup woke me up with his coyote-sounding yawn and was doing a peepee dance at 4am so I'm up an hour earlier than my alarm. In a bit I'm going to start my bodyweight workout and, because of the early start, I can have a small break before the cardio sprinter portion, yippee. I'm not sure how I feel other than I AM looking forward to this being over haha
    2/03 - I wasn't expecting that woosh at all! I made homemade beef and cabbage pan fried wontons last night. They weren't that great, but I think part of that is because it was ground beef. I had pork, but unfortunately it went bad before I could make it. Plus seasonings were off and not enough. I have leftover filling and wonton wrappers for lunch today. Got my workout in despite not wanting to get up at all. Woke up mid-dream and that always messes with me. Then BigBro's car wouldn't start, my car was frozen over entirely, and so I had to take him to school. Good thing because in spots where water pools, it was all icy. I almost couldn't make it up the hill home because the water pooled at the bottom left water tracks up the hill which froze. Thankfully I had 4WD and some umph to get me far enough up to get in the grass and get traction. Late start to work and to everything else. Setting up my grocery pickup to be about the same time I pick up BigBro from school so I can knock two things out in one trip since today is grocery day anyway.
    2/04 - I was rushing for a puppy that really had to go outside ASAP so I skipped weighing. Probably good for my mental state as I indulged in a little wine last night and that never helps the scale in the morning. Today is an alcohol free day, though. Back to help Fam move the remainder of their stuff into the new house and help get things ready for a garage sale tomorrow. Should be plenty of movement today, will just have to be careful of my food choices. Hope you're all having a good weekend. Will try to check in tomorrow as well, time permitting. Also hoping for a weigh in tomorrow to see where I stand so I can adjust and not have a huge weekend gain.

    @39flavours I need to get my happy *kitten* out of the chair and do something. I’ve been to the gym once since the pandemic started. People were still supposed be masked. I was the only one who was, other than employees and none of them said anything to the unmasked. I felt unsafe and had only a short workout. I have a bad back and hold 17# great grandson while standing is an issue.

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!
