The other thing we have at work is... well, a certain candy that goes on top of a new donut. I ate some. Getting mad at myself here. I even brought a coconut flour tea biscuit with me, and I totally forgot about it in my purse. Today, I'm working for the 6th day in a row and I get to do it on 4 hours sleep. I need to clean up my act. If I get the exhaustion munchies, I need to keep it LC.

Days 6 of 90

Goal of this challenge: Simply to tally how well I do sticking to my diet plan over the next 90 days.

Good days: 5
So-so eating: 0
Off the mark: 1
Late snacks: 2

Yesterday: 39 net carbs, 123 total carbs, 2400 calories and 15K steps. I was at the upper end of OP yesterday, but considering the tough workout the day before I will still call it a good day. I did eat last at 9:30 PM, so I had to tally a late snack.

Wondering what number 90-Day Challenge this is for you guys. This is my first. It seems to be helping me a lot. I feel confident I will make the 90 days and I am already starting to think about my next challenge. Will probably keep it about the same, but will tweak it a little.

This 90 day challenge idea was started HERE in the TDC Club section a few years ago. I believe that I completed 4 or 5 of them back then and I found them extremely helpful with my accountability. It helped me stay on track and improve my eating habits. I considered those challenges as a significant contributing factor to me reaching my goal weight. Thud started this thread, expanding the focus to more than just diet. Self improvement is a good thing. That is what we are all trying to do. Focusing on one or two things at a time helps bring about lasting change. At least it has for me.

Rock on, Kauaimom. You are doing great.

Another so-so day, food-wise. Too loosey-goosey for me to call "on-plan".

Default Day 1

I have failed over and over with these 90 days challenges.
So this time I am going to use Ken's latest approach. Ken I hope you don't mind me copying you.

I have been failing miserably at my eating plan since The beginning of December and I have gained 15 pounds since then.

I do best with weight loss by eating no more than 20 carbs and not eating after 5pm.

I am going to tally my days here as a way to be accountable and to try to get myself back on my way to reaching my goal.

Day 1/90

On plan:
Off plan:
Eating after 5pm:

I NEED to get control of myself before I end up back at 190!

Days 7 of 90

Goal of this challenge: Simply to tally how well I do sticking to my diet plan over the next 90 days.

Good days: 5
So-so eating: 1
Off the mark: 1
Late snacks: 3

Yesterday: 31 net carbs, 111 total carbs, too many calories from fat and protein, but a good workout on the elliptical. I did eat late again, too. I called this a so-so eating day, saved from an "off the mark" tally by a 1200+ calorie workout. Today I'll try to eat according to the new plan. But I'm doing a 10K in 6 days. I will likely mix in some IFs and VLC/high calorie days before the race. I want to make sure my body is running on fat when I'm running on the pavement.

I did not know about the TDC 90 day challenge - I had joined a 2 hr a week exercise challenge on there (they let me play with them!) but that thread stopped being active. I still aim for at least 2 hours a week now. I saw Thud's thread and have done one prior to this. I needed 20 min a day 5 days a week to get myself going on cleaning and packing out of a house and added a sub-goal of 20 min of exercise 5 days a week. It helped me a lot. This one is also helping me stay on track with these projects. I don't want to veer off this path.

goal: 15 min of creative writing, research or extracting writing from journal notes 5 days a week for my project/s.

Yesterday got away from me. Busy all day, on a roll, reminded myself about 10 times to write! But never got to it.
today: 15 min researching, making notes, and going over project 1 from the beginning.

day 16

Yesterday was a success in terms of my new habit challenge. I am truly very pleased with this forum and this particular 90 day workshop. I would not be having this two weeks of clear headedness otherwise.

I was listening to Dr.Jason Fung last night, and
today I am going to do a 16- 8 fast. (I really want to see results on the scale.)

THUD Nice to see you back .

Keeping it real..Nancy

hope everyone has a great day.
