Day 3 of 90

No snacking days: 2

Net carbs: 14, 1900 calories and 19K steps (including a 5K jog). It was a good day and an easy OP day. Now I just need to string some of them together and find some consistency.

Welcome to the group Jane! The more the merrier.

Day 2 of 90

Goal:
1 hour of exercise every day, with 1 rest day per week.

Yesterday:
20 min walk
20 mins of strength
45 min aqua zumba class
15 mins of jacuzzi for muscles & relaxation

Today I'm feeling sore and I have plantar fasciitis and walking for anything longer than 20 mins is not a good idea, so it will be harder to get my exercise in. Plus my hands are super dry from all the pool I've been doing all week, so no pool today. I'll have to get creative.

Have a great day everyone and thank you for the warm welcome!

Default Day 32 - 90 days ends Jul 7

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. Came close to blowing it today. Things have been "a series of unfortunate events" for me for quite awhile now... I was asking myself today "do I blow it today? Do I blow it TODAY?" I found some pork rinds for the way home after errands and seeing my mom. Mental notes: fast food calling me, candy my mom gave me to get rid of.

Day 4 of 90

No snacking days: 3

Net carbs: 30, 3300 calories and 21K steps. I counted it as a no snacking outside of meals day, but the truth is that I ate plenty extra at dinner. Too much food - a few too many carbs, but not off the rails. I'll try to do better today.

Relying heavily on pork rinds lately but they are convenient for the truck. Today at work - mental note: "Muffins for Mom" - there were all kinds of muffins everywhere. I am not a fan of commercially made muffins but these were on a tray right at the Circ desk in the general area where I work and I kept seeing them. Many fast food places - had to go get gas and finish shopping this evening.

Not making stellar choices (snacky stuff instead of meals) but still doing all right. Nothing on notepad today - it was nice being at home and not out running.
