day19 I made it through another weekend away.
I went out for dinner and wound up still hungry from the measly excuse of a Greek Salad. lol so ate about 100 grams of roast beef when I got home.
Saturday and Sunday I completed 16/8 fasts.
Will do it again today it of course this encompasses my 90 day commitment of no snacking before super or after. I hope to soon see some great changes of the scales. But feeling good, still hopeful and much less bloated.

I have done a few. I find the success is simply in doing them. Not if you reach a particular goal or not. How can you predict the future? The only time you can do anything about your future is right now. Today, this moment. The further I think ahead or the further I dig back into the past, the more I rob myself of what is happening right now.

Maybe this should be called the right now challenge

Jeannette, after reading your declaration and this post yesterday I was pumped. I consider this the first step of practice; not accomplishing what you wanted. An fulfilled expectation.

I had a similar experience this weekend (starting last Friday, 2 days after a large snowstorm that provided some of the best riding conditions of the season) On Friday morning the surface that we had been riding on effortlessly on Tuesday had developed a hard crust that made riding "impossible" when you would turn the board, your feet would drag on the crust and you'd go flying "over the handle bars" It was no fun. It was fail.

Later that evening, after thinking about the first ride, I thought of a few more things to try that might help, like blaze a little trail and pack it down by repeatedly riding over the same swath and making it bigger. This worked! and also provided me more practice riding on the crusty surface with less falling.

The next day on Saturday we thought we'd try another lake but found the same crust, but not as think. We took what we learned about making a trail and got more practice riding on the unfamiliar surface, even to the point of trying stuff that would have been "impossible" the day before becuase of time practicing and falling and failing and learning (at least what not to do).

http://downhaul.com/lowcarb/2018misc/snowCrust.m4v

And yesterday we drove 80 miles to another lake that we thought would have better conditions but it was similar conditions. That was a bummer but we said what the hell and rode since we were all the way out there.

It was a really fun day and the conditions were basically the same as the first day, the day I hated and crashed over and over.

All of these words to say that I'm happy you posted your first day as not quite hitting the mark. That is awesome! If you can take any little thing you learn that "did" work yesterday and move it into todays practice that's what counts in my book.

I think it's easier practicing a physical activity that gives immediate feedback (crash) and you don't have time to think, the success or failure of motion is built in - there is no thinking going on while the act is happening only some precognition and then reflection later then loop back.

Eating Low Carb is easy; Learning how you mind works is the hard part - I think this takes time and patients and kindness towards the thinker.

Anyway, have at it jeannette1!

Days 8 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: 2
Off the mark: 1
Late snacks: 3

Yesterday: 50 net carbs, 112 total carbs. Too much food to call it a good day. But like Saturday, Sunday was a big workout day. Even though I ate more than 3000 calories, it was most likely a fat loss day. I didn't eat after 6:30pm , so I'll call it a so-so day. Today will be better.

THUD ...Maybe this should be called the right now challenge

I agree it is only in this moment that I can do anything at all to improve my life.

I have finished supper and still feel hungry so was getting into the 4 year old cheddar thinking it could be considered dessert. This Eating malady is tricky. On one hand u think your being kind to your self. But u are actually just doing what causes you the most pain.

So for right now I am going to stop eating and remember what the real kindness to me is.

Thud and Jeannette, that's why I have in my sig, "Every day is day one." I like that mantra. It encourages me to jump right back on the wagon if I make a poor decision, but more importantly, it helps stop me from getting cocky while on a good streak.

I'm looking forward to switching shifts to an early morning shift. I'm not sure when it'll happen, because it depends on our sales and when the next layoffs will be, but probably next week. There are no buses running that early, and I don't want to pay for a cab unless the weather is lousy - so I'll be walking and cycling as often as possible/convenient.

...if winter ever leaves, that is.

20 days out of 90... See what tomorrow brings... I know instant gratification is for babies but I am disappointed in the length of time its taking for a weight loss reward.
