Hi all. I went overboard on calories yesterday. I did more walking than usually and my hunger came back with a vengeance. Today I will have to keep it in check. It's good to see so many people on the board again but we are still missing Mern and Terry. Have a good week end and a good weigh in on Monday.

I had a good day today both food wise and exercise. This evening I am drinking water with lemon and no snacking. What beautiful weather we had today.

Libby: Sounds like things are coming back together!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Strategy for the Week (April 27 - May 3):
  • 7-day Rolling Average calories = 1400-1450: 1343, 1220, 1310, 1446, 1472, 1442
  • 7-day Rolling Average water/tea, minimum 2500mL (10+ 8oz glasses): 2904, 3127, 3195, 3052, 3119, 2913
  • 7-day Rolling Average sodium = 1000-1400: 1570, 1159, 1194, 1193, 1172, 1148
  • 7-day Rolling Average sat fat = under 18g: 18, 16, 17, 20, 20, 20 <--- At least I'm consistent
  • Macro -- 7-day Rolling Average Fats = 50-60g: 61, 55, 58, 65, 66, 64
  • Macro -- 7-day Rolling Average Carbs = 125-135g: 106, 100, 117, 124, 130, 137 <--- from one extreme to the other
  • Macro -- 7-day Rolling Average Protein = 100-110: 100, 91, 93, 104, 104, 94
  • Macro -- 7-day Rolling Average Fiber = 35-45g: 12, 14, 18, 22, 26, 24
  • Explore! Try something new or do some nutrition-related research at least 2 times:
    • Monday: Started incorporating macros
    • Tuesday: Revised macros so they're more realistic for me
    • Tuesday: Did some reading on what leads people to "overeat" (using the definition "eat more than one burns")
    • Wednesday: So, about that Protein Powder...
    • Thursday: Wait, what? Protein powder isn't JUST for shakes (I'm so not a shakes fan)? You can actually COOK with it? I'm listening...
Had an odd day today -- a few too many carbs, not enough protein, but still kept the overall calorie total within the desired range. I was on the road, so I drank very little. Trying to make up for it now, but I'll probably only get in half my usual daily consumption. After all, I don't want to have to sleep in the bathroom!

Hope you all had a fine day!

I feel so sorry for Sunday. Week after week, she gets so little M&A love...

Epixi, you might not be hitting all your ranges exactly, but you're doing super well. You should be proud of yourself!

I've had a few missteps this weekend, but I haven't gone completely off the deep end. I don't know what happened to my determination and drive though. I just feel "meh" about the whole thing.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!!!
