Default "Don't lose your grip" challenge

Okay, so, I've been working on my weightloss and healthy living plan for a while now, and have made significant progress. I'm working through some personal challenges, which combined with a lack of pound progress has me feeling like I'm losing my grip a little bit. On sanity, and on my program.

So, I'd like to take two weeks and renew my energy and commitment. If you're somewhere in the doldrums with me or having some trouble staying focused, join on in!

Current weight: 186.8
Goal: no goal weight, this is about mindset
Commitment:
  • Eat on plan, recording every day
  • Exercise 30-60 minutes 5 days
  • Post on at least two threads daily, including this one
  • Remind myself that this challenge is not about pounds; it's about making sure I remember and celebrate all the good work I've done.
  • Find some small inspiration or positive thought daily.

Awesome! I'm glad to have a few others in this with me, and uber, perhaps you and I can recenter and get to a better place for moving forward again.

I don't have all my stuff to post yet today (it's only 9 AM!), but I will work on the positive and affirming stuff and come back in a bit to post here.

Okay, so I'm back! Here was my day:

* I was on plan and recorded everything today.
* 60 minutes vigorous exercise - half weights, half cardio. Boy, that felt good.
* I've re-posted on this one and will post in another when I've done here.
* I was really delighted about how good it felt to be working out today~

Still doing well...

* I was on plan and recorded everything today.
* 30 minutes vigorous exercise - cardio. Didn't get my weights in, but I worked my tail off around the house this morning, then grocery shopping, and that was my compromise. I am tired.
* managed to eke out a little time for 3FC at 10 PM. True commitment...

Okay, I am in too. Not yet at the 30 minutes a day, but will work in that direction.

I am good at recording, not so good at the exercise, just starting back in, and working thru the pain of fibromyalgia.... I know it will get better. Also, today is the day I buy a decent food scale. Even though I track everything I eat, I am not losing, so think maybe I am eating more than I should without knowing it.

Well no exercise and half-assed recording... but very good on plan yesterday and today and "feeling thinner". Last four days were NUTS. Crazy day on Thurs getting ready for a big presentation. Drove out of state for presentation and then back on Friday, then yesterday and today I worked back to back 14 hour shifts. Yikes. So I'm cutting myself slack for not exercising.

And give yourself kudos for coming here!

OP today. Walked 2.8 miles with dogs and DH, and worked hard around the house (e.g. cleaning out garage).

Having curry for dinner tonight...starved! Can hardly wait. Sure hope the scale moves (down) tomorrow.

Okay. Bought the scale today. found what I thought was 4 ounces of fish is really 7. If I am that far off on this one food, could be the reason for the stall. Will keep on tracking and figure it out. Now, are calories based on cooked weight, or raw-- or does it matter.
