Default Awaiting the S.O.S!: June 2019 Daily Check-in & Accountability Thread

to the June 2019 daily weigh-in/check-in. ALL our welcome to this thread. Here you will find support, encouragement, and endless kindness.

Here you can:
~track your weight daily, weekly or however you'd like ... but do check in
~keep track of what you eat or didn't eat
~keep track of your water intake or lack of
~keep track of your exercise/other goals
~vent, rant ... express yourself or just chit-chat

It's hard to believe that in a few short weeks the start of summer will be here (that's the S.O.S. in our title this month ). Are you one of those folks who look forward to the summer with the same anticipation that you do the arrival of a good friend you haven't seen in awhile? Where I live the rain has stopped, we had a week of spring, and are now experiencing days that are inching toward 90 degrees What does the new season have in store for you? Some have or will have vacation/travel plans. The academic year concludes with graduations and celebrations taking place. Our yards, neighborhoods and grocery stores look different with fresh fruits, vegetables and greenery in season. Lots of changes and lots to be thankful for. By the time June arrives we're spending our time a little bit differently. We slow down . We look forward to relaxing after work, and spending time with friends and family. And nothing beats the long days with extra daylight.

However you spend this month, let's all take some time to be good to ourselves. Spend more time doing the things that you enjoy, keep you healthy, and looking forward to each day. The folks on this thread work hard, support friends, have hobbies, care for loved ones, etc. Don't think for a moment you don't deserve time for yourself!

A happy and successful June to us all!

Curvy, thank you for continuing the thread- I find it to be such a great and helpful place for accountability, support and motivation!

I'm not much for summer, but it's definitely nicer now that it's not so muddy and damp. This month, my goal is to get back into exercising everyday (walking the pup, actually getting to the gym, doing some hot yoga here and there), meet my water goals, and keep it Keto. In the land of life goal, my goal this month is to get out and socialize more Best of luck to everyone this month!

Thank you so much curvynotlumpy for starting up this thread again. And thank you for explaining your title, because I was really confused there

With the awful Winter and Spring we have had, I can't tell you how much I long for Summer. But they predict a rainy and cool one In the month of May, we had rain 25 out of 31 days, that's enough! I need sunshine and some warmth, but not too much.

My goal this month is to get through the remaining 3 weeks of the program I bought from Fitness Blender. I've tried it before and never made it past 2 weeks, but as luck would have it, I will be on staycation when the third week starts, so that should help me get over the hump. I'm really happy to report that I completed the 5 workouts this week, even though today I was procrastinating like crazy. Around 1pm we went for a long drive, since it was sunny and warm-ish (and we saw someone drive a Ghostbuster car!), but afterwards I was very tired and I fell asleep on the couch. David "nagged" at me until I got up and got moving. Of course I was in a foul mood at first but now I'm glad I completed my workout.

Wishing everyone great success this month of June!

Hello everyone. I have mixed feelings on summer. I hate the heat. At least we have low humidity. My allergies are acting up. I'm allergic to outdoor grasses, molds, weeds and silver maple trees. My eyes have been itching terribly. Colorado gets so many late afternoon storms during the summer too. We've had lots of rain and tornado and warnings lately too. We had so much snow in the mountains that at least one of the ski resorts will be open into June. The run off is predicted to make for the best rafting in years. I have school for the first eight weeks of summer, then a nice break of about a month. I'm only taking a one credit elective. So, that's good.

I need to begin working out again. I need to refocus on my weight loss. We are going to Prague in September, and I need to loose some more weight and strengthen my core. I've been enjoying purchasing new clothes and purging the too large ones. I had to get new workout pants because mine were falling off. I just asked hubby if he wanted to walk before I start watching school videos. He has been super supportive with this. He makes sure the fridge is stocked with fresh vegetables and chicken before he goes on trips. My son is doing the same plan as I. So, we support each other too. Hubby started following a modified version of what we are doing since his sugar level was borderline in February. Can't have that. When I began this plan last May, my triglycerides were high. I was on the lowest does of lipitor, but according to my diet doc, lipitor does not lower triglycerides. After only one month, my triglycerides dropped over 100 points. I realy have not missed the carbs, but every once in a while I'll crave something specific. The craving doesn't last long, and I haven't given in. I just know even when I get to goal weight, I'll most likely continue with the low carb high protein diet to maintain.

Hey guys...life and school got the better of me and I fell out of my routine harder than I ever have on a mere rebound. Just in the past three months since I've been gone I have packed on 40 lbs. FORTY. Yes, some of that is bloat, but most of it isn't. Anyway, I hit my big "reality check moment" when I stepped on the scale out of morbid curiosity last week and it told me I was back over 200 lbs. That's not a bad thing in general, but it was quite a shocker to me considering that I was just in the 160s in March. Putting on that much weight that fast is not healthy, and I can feel the strain it has had on my body. So, I started my efforts of getting back on track last week and it has been hit or miss, but I'm getting a little better with each day. I told myself part of those efforts would be to come back here yesterday since it was the first, but today will have to count. I had a member here check in on me a couple of days ago, right before coming back, so I'm taking that as a sign that coming back today was meant to be! Here's to getting back on track yet again...aiming for 10 lbs this month since I have bloated up so much.

opheliaphoenix it is so nice to have you with us again I wish you wouldn't have to deal with this setback but I know you have the strength to get through it and we are here for you.

imthegoddess Prague in September, what could be better than that?! I'm happy for you that your triglycerides are down with the plan you are on. And it is great that you not only have your husband's support, but he's also joining in as well as your son. Makes it much easier when everyone is on the same page.

I just finished another workout, second week of regaining my life. While I was on the floor doing "bench" presses (I don't use our bench, I feel unstable and am unable to get off of it because it's too high), Loki went in for some doggie kisses. He took advantage of the fact that I was down to his level to go on the "attack", the sneaky one.

Hope everyone has been enjoying a nice weekend

Can't there be nice weather two days in-a-row? There were tornado watches in effect in a couple of areas of Québec province last evening, that is crazy! I know there have been random tornadoes up here in the past, but I never saw a tornado warning on tv. Very scary stuff. Anyway, after a very uncomfortable night of sleeping, where I would get in a comfy position only for my body to tell me to switch positions every few minutes, I got up at 5am and got in my workout. There was a 5-minute HIIT interval in there and I hadn't done that in a looooooong time and I really struggled to catch my breath for the strength training section that came afterwards. I also noticed a twinge in my right knee towards the end, I need to be careful. Tomorrow is a core workout, so that should help rest my knee.

Have a great Monday everyone!

Tornadoes are scary things. We had a number of them touch down last Sunday. It's Colorado.I know half the state is in the plains, but really? I guess this is the new norm. I grew up on the east coast. At least with Hurricanes, you know they are coming. Tornadoes are another beast. Do take care.

Casey: It’s nice to see you here again! This backslide will be a thing of the past soon enough, I know you’ll power through it and get back to where you were in no time!

Martine: I hear you on the weather-front! It would be so nice to get more than one day of nice weather in a row… although your tornado watches sound scarier than our rain Way to go on your workouts!

Martine: Thank you! I've been having a lot of setbacks this whole past year off and on, but I'm hoping this is my last "fall" for awhile. I'd really love to hit some new milestones this year, so I've just got to keep getting back up until my routine is stable again. Good job on the workouts, and I hope the weather is less scary up there today!


imthegoddess: Thanks!


Kayla: Thank you! This one will be a bit rough since it got so far out of hand, but I'm happy to be back and ready to feel like I'm back at the helm of things, so to speak. One day at a time. Hope everything's been well with you!


-----------------------------------------


I won't be able to weigh-in on Mondays or Wednesday because I have a class that starts early that day and will be eating before I am in my weigh-in window on those days, so I just marked them all ahead of time. That said, my weigh-in today is back up a bit, but I ate very late after while watching Netflix with my husband (one of my biggest triggers is eating lots late at night while watching TV) last night. That issue will be one of the main things I'm focusing on getting back under control. I've been doing great during the day, but I've been struggling with staying up so late that I get super hungry again and end up going overboard on the snacks or just eating again, negating my prior efforts. I will check back in on Thursday...hope you guys are all doing well!

I’m on vacation in Florida for the week. I’ve been eating fresh seafood and lots of salads. The best part has been walking on the beach every morning.

I won’t weigh until I get back home.

DayDreamer26 hope things settle down a bit for you this month.

ChickieBoom enjoy your time in the sun in Florida. I wish I was in Florida, the weather has been awful up here this Spring.

Opheliaphoenix do you like veggies? Maybe prepare portions in advance so you can enjoy late-night snacking without many calories and with a lot of nutrients? Or some fruits like berries if you have more of a sweet tooth. I'm not much help in this department because I usually fall asleep before 9pm...

Yesterday I chose to sleep in a bit longer so I chose not to exercise. But back at it early this morning with an upper body routine. I challenged myself and used 10-pound weights on some of the exercises. Aside from getting my body moving and getting healthy, a big benefit of exercising for me is that I drink more water (because I sweat a whole lot while working out) and I eat better too, because I don't want to screw up all the hard work I put in. Three more work days and then I am on staycation for 9 days. I am aiming to finish on time on Friday, even though I know something always tends to happen to get me side-tracked when I want to leave for vacation.

Happy mid-week everyone!
