Day 33 of 90

Goal: Keep on tracking, baby! Weigh myself daily. Pay attention to hunger, thirst, and satiety signals. Be mindful of portions and eating and drinking enough to sustain me. Limit dairy. Serve myself on plates, cups and dishes instead of eating out of a container.

Aiming more toward 40 g NC with lower protein and fat, feeling well and weight is settling back down. Ate a couple of meals out; no big spikes in weight.

Target: <42 NC (<60 total), <1650 calories, <110 g fat, <120 g protein.
Actual: 39.8 NC (56.8 total), 1497 calories, 102 g fat, 92 g protein.

Goal weight: <206
Today's weight: 205.6

Day 44 of 90

15 total carbs - 2800 calories. 4 mile run on top of an active day. 25K steps. Fitness track says that I burned 4000+ calories. So it was a really good day. The thing that outsiders to our WOE simply don't understand is that what I did yesterday was not calorie restriction - eat less/exercise more. I ate well. I ate plenty. I was satisfied with what I ate and didn't go to bed hungry. Plus it was really active day that resulted in it being a good fat loss day. I do count calories. I need help with portion control as my body does not send a clear "tank is full" signal when I start eating. I stop eating when I know that I've had enough by the numbers. But I wasn't starving all day long as I would have been if I were trying to follow a low fat, high carb diet while doing a tough workout day.

Default Day 5 of 5 this week - 90 days ends Apr 8

1. No cheats - on plan food only. To aid with this I am taking a small notepad with me and when I see something I think I will throw in my mouth I am going to write it down instead. Day 67. Nothing really tempting me, on notepad: drinks!! I got a tiny bottle of Irish whiskey, not buying big bottles of stuff - don't need it around. Made a "holiday" drink which I allow on special occasions - otherwise doing well.

2. 30 min exercise 5 X a week. Cannot get it together for this, lately...

3. Clean SOMETHING. Or sort, organize, etc. 15 min + 5 X a week.

4. Open mail right away, keep on top of finances.

Actual: 40.7 NC (52.7 total), 1775 calories, 95 g fat, 110 g protein.

Day 45 of 90

The midway point of this challenge was not one of my better days. I ate way too much OP food. Still, it was less than 20 total carbs. I'm rather stuffed after breakfast this morning. Perhaps I will WANT to eat less for dinner. We'll see. A workout planned this evening at the Y. Hopefully I'll be bursting with energy.
