Good morning everyone! Hope the week treats us all well.

Today starts a busy week for me. 3 doctors appointments for me...one for my mom...and today we have the kids. Tuesday I see the retina specialist and they've already told me it'll be surgery. Which at this point I just want to get it fixed...so while I'm not happy about needing it it is what it is. Just get it done!

My fasting is going ok but I need to be a little more rigid on start and finishes. 2 complete fasts and one almost complete fast!

QOTD: Any goals you want to accomplish this week?

I'd like to move to 16:8 fasts by the end of the week and just sticking to it!

b1: water and maybe a black coffee

b2: JUST egg, chicken sausage and GF toast

a1: small slice of Mexican casserole

a2: 1 tbs peanut butter and a corn thin or crisp bread

e: Mexican casserole

Good morning all! I'm a bit annoyed this morning as it's day three of IF and I somehow gained 2 pounds! Ugh. I am trying to lose this regain, not gain even more. Fingers crossed it starts to go back down soon! It's been a struggle, but I've been staying on track.

Anytime my weight goes up by a pound or two, it is after a day when I did not drink much water. I have a 20 oz mug that I normally fill up four or five times a day. If I don't have tha****er, my body starts holding on to water and my weight goes up. Because my smart scale measures water weight, that is not just something I imagine. I see the pound on the water measurement and on the weight measurement.

Nothing on the agenda today, but I'm going to do a Zoom yoga class and go to Costco to get more flavored water (I should probably start drinking Crystal Light instead - much cheaper and no plastic..). If the weather cooperates, I may also take a bike ride this afternoon. And read for class. And maybe watch one of the movie videos I checked out from the library. And clean the bathrooms. My brother arrives tomorrow night and will probably be here for a week, so whatever I need to get done needs to get done today or tomorrow so that I'll be fairly free while he's here...

QOTD: just listed 'em! In addition, I'll continue with my fitness goals (45 minutes of cardio 4x a week, 20 minutes of strength training 2x a week - have been doing well with those). My calorie goals (under 1700 cal/day) may be a challenge this week with him here, but I'll try. A more realistic eating goal may be to not gain any weight...

B: pumpkin yogurt with 2 T pumpkin seed/flax granola on top, coffee with half & half

MS: protein shake

L: Costco chicken skewer on 1/2 pita with tzatziki sauce and cucumber slices

AS: 1/2 protein muffin, L&F yogurt

D: I may have 1/2 a veggie "burger" on 1/2 a slim bun, plus salad with light dressing or some kind of vegetable

have a great day, everyone!

Good morning, everybody!

Everybody is nose to the grindstone this morning. so focused. I had a good weekend. Happy hour on Friday night and then over to the neighbors for a bonfire. Frankly, the bonfire was a bit of wishful thinking because it was freezing out. I ended up going home and wrapping myself in blankets.

Saturday was mostly a long workout followed by a nap. Yesterday, I got my haircut and booked a trip to Alaska with my oldest son before he goes back to school for the fall semester.

I also did my official, start of IF weigh-in (ugh) and some research. My take away is to eat high quality foods during the eating window. (i.e. not Smart Pop and protein bars). I was down .8 today, sort least I feel like I am underway.

Today, I'm doing the Pump ad Row Challenge on Rogue Fitness. Anything for a T-shirt, I guess.

QOTD: Stay on my 16/8 program, but increase the quality during the 8. I am entered in a weightlifting meet on May 22nd, so my fitness goals are focused towards that. Hopefully 120 squat snatch on Saturday.

Breakfast: lunch leftovers from yesterday

Lunch: Mahi burger

Dinner: TBD

Have a great day, all!

I have recently become addicted to smart pop. I need to stop that habit but it's so good.
