    Yesterday ended in heatstroke. Ash got it worse but I have worse sunburn!

    So we're staying out the sun today. No walking today either. My legs need a rest day.
    Got a lot of washing to get away today so gonna start with that.
    And I'm going to try log my food today.

    I know I've been eating fairly well! In general I'm fed up of crisps and biscuits and chocolate which is NOT like me at all. But I'm not complaining, my new found love of fruit is so much better!
    But without logging I can't know for sure!

    Hope everyone has a good day! X

    Guess my goals for today are

    -Log food
    -Do some leg stretches.

    I went off the rails a little yesterday.
    I’ve had two days now where I’ve eaten over my goal. Feel bloated and guilty. Could see myself slipping down a dark hole pretty easy right now if I don’t stay in top of this.
    Frustrated with this whole finger/hand thing
    Pain still present
    Swelling still hasn’t come down much
    I wonder if we missed a fracture on imaging although I don’t really have point tenderness except where the fracture is so maybe I just need to be patient and once swelling subsides things will level out

    Plan for today
    2k calories
    10-14 glasses of water
    40-60 min trainer (was gonna do treadmill but I think the impact of running will make my hand throb like a mofo)
    Log all food
    No more than small bowls of popcorn. (Seems like it has taken over as my gateway drug)
    No beer
    No food after 9

    Fell over the baby gate again yesterday, and bounced my head off the laundry room door frame. Got a mighty nice goose egg on my forehead, but a little ibuprofen seemed to know out the pain. Laid down after that instead of going for my walk. Then got up and went to trivia. Didn't log at the bar (will log it this morning), but did pretty well. We won at trivia for a change. We win a lot on Thursdays, but rarely on Wednesdays. It was a fun night. I even shot a couple of games of pool. They weren't great, but I am improving.

    Not really feeling it today, but I'll focus on the plan. Small regular meals and some exercise. Almost forgot that I need to go to mom's to sort her bills after work. May go for a bike ride instead of trivia tonight, but it kind of depends on the hubby. V is going to a swim party.

    JFT Thursday

    - Eat lean & green dinner (low carb)
    - Bed by 10:30

    Got up at 5am to get to the pool this morning - and it was CLOSED because the lifeguard didn't show up. Grrr.... but came home and did a youtube low-impact workout and a good yoga stretch, so proud I didn't let it completely derail my day. I've been eating healthy and for now I think will stay away from tracking...just want to get my mindset back before I start obsessing over numbers. The best shape I was ever in I didn't track, just stayed away from "white foods" (white flour, white sugar, potatoes..) but I was running back then so that was my great equalizer. But will see what happens if I simply focus on moderate exercise every day and eating healthy.
    JFT:
    exercise CHECK
    healthy eating
    100oz of water
    no alcohol

    Made my goals for yesterday - starting on Day 4 of back to healthy living. I'm definitely out of the "binge mode" mindset I've been in through everything that's been going on - having the house back in order seems to have put my head back in order as well! But I have no desire to see the number on the scale, I'm afraid that will derail me again. I'm just gonna keep on, keepin' on. It's a long weekend coming up for us - that's exciting! I'm going to fill the backyard planters with flowers, finally harvest my arugula in the garden, and then park my butt in the backyard and enjoy it. :) Hope everyone has a great day!

    Yesterday was pretty good. Kept my intake reasonable. I left work late, so no bike ride. Hopefully today. Went to trivia and won, but hubby got totally knackered. He got sloppy drunk which ruins everyone's fun. Also meant I was up way later than normal. I don't mind being the DD, and luckily he didn't hurl in my car, but it was not a good night after we left the bar.

    Oh, I did get a call back for an interview for the new job I applied for. It is an exciting opportunity.

    Today is a Friday leading into a long weekend, so there is nobody at work. It's going to be a long day. May skip out early and go ride. It is supposed to be a really pretty day.

    JFT Friday
    - Weigh in :( Forgot
    - Work by 8:00 :(
    - Morning meetings :smiley:
    - Check in with MFP
    - DO some research on current interview strategies
    - Eat lite breakfast and lunch
    - log food
    - ride bike
    - nap
    - dinner at home
    - bed early
