Day 49 of 90

Long, hard day at work, rained out of my lunchtime walk, got off work 2 hours late, threw together a quick dinner, and managed to get in a 1 hour workout at the Y before they closed. Yet... I ate well, logged my food, had a good OP day overall, and avoided bingeing on a tub of Ben & Jerry's to relieve the stress of it all. We are switching to a new computer system at work and it isn't going well.

Day 38 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.

Ate dinner out at a Chinese restaurant, colored outside the lines a little bit but did okay. I've ordered egg foo yung there in the past thinking it was my best choice even though it's not my favorite choice. The cashew chicken is a treat (I scrape aside most of the gravy) and it sits well with me. No big bump on the scale this morning.

Will be traveling for a few days and so will be watching carbs by ear, no tracking. I packed some rotisserie chicken pieces, walnuts, bagged salad and bottled water for the trip.

Target: <42 NC (<60 total), <1650 calories, <110 g fat, <120 g protein.
Actual: 39.6 NC (54.6 total), 1759 calories, 108 g fat, 105 g protein.

Goal weight: <206
Today's weight: 205.0

I'm joining in this thread! I'm back-starting to last Friday.

Goals:
1. 90 days eating ketogenically.
2. 90 days planning/preparing in advance what I will eat for the next day or next several days
3. Going to sleep before midnight Sunday-Thursday

Status:
1. 7 days on track. Working on Day 8.
2. 4 days on track.
3. 0 days on track. I'm still adjusting to DST and now my body is adjusting back to keto after an epic fail on 3/14. So I'm WIDE awake late at night. I used melatonin last night and that helped.

Default Day 4 of 5 this week - 90 days ends Apr 8

Hi Robyn! Very glad to see you here!

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 72. Nothing on notepad yet - will be going out later so will update tonight. Not anticipating any real issues other than the pseudo-wanting everything my brain thinks I should eat for comfort, reward, treat, a break, etc...

2. 30 min exercise 5 X a week. 30 min + low impact dancing to Pandora while doing other things - it's been more than an hour

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