    swapping dinner for baklava and jerky seems legit to me!
  2. Grumble is feeling PHULish

    That's a serious amount of hungover, but hey, you gotta party sometimes.

    I was 80% sure by the end of the day yesterday that shark week is arriving early. And then I woke up almost 2# bloated this morning. >_> I think some of this is from eating salty holiday meal testing. So I am buying salad for lunch today and not eating turkey, stuffing, and cornbread casserole. > sad face < Bloat usually starts around the 15th of the month and lasts 7-10 days and is in the order of 2-4#. Is it time for menopause yet? Wednesday, it's okay to be uncomfortable: - Veto'd a thing I had set up at work due to the snow storm even though it made me look neurotic - Signed up for a beginner two day hiking/rustic cabin thing in March! - Came home and immediately started shoveling snow - Finished shoveling before Mr T got home from work so I made protein banana nut muffins with some sad bananas we had lying around. I didn't read, but I did make those muffins. And I made myself package up the shoes to return this morning, since I was supposed to do it last night. I'll have to make an effort to read tomorrow night instead of just watching Netflix. Thursday goal: ONE GOAL: WATER WATER WATER Week's Plan: Thursday: return shoes to UPS by farfit. barbell club. Friday: READ & food prep for Saturday's party (making a dessert {dessert is also a test for x-mas}) (decided not to make the cornbread muffins to save time and money) Saturday: AM barbell club, PM SCA household holiday party. Sunday: hike with Mr T and then go to the DSW near the state park to shop for him to get some snow boots to wear into work for his new job

    I think it actually ended up being more than 8".

    This is how I feel about the physio ball rollouts in my current program. He said "just go as far as you can with good form, even if it's just 3-4". Me "this leads me to believe this exercise is going to SUCK." I actually love it, but I'm terrible. Sounds like something that needs to be next on my list of cornbreads to try.

    good thing we all made this plan happen because the 3-5" forecast has transformed into a 5-8" of snow this afternoon forecast! Definitely postponing my Wed workout to Thurs. It MAY still snow into tomorrow evening, but Powerhouse is basically across the street if it comes to that.

    Yesterday fell apart a little bit in the diet department. I did the Christmas dinner testing, everything was delicious. I put too much food on my plate. And instead of stopping when I was full, I felt like I had to eat most of what was on my plate. Moral of the story: 1) stop when full 2) use a smaller plate for big meals. To note: I estimated I still only ate 2086 cals, despite feeling pretty full. And that is well below maintenance for me. Did overcome some Tuesday discomforts though: - drank all the waters, filled up my water bottle when I wanted to be lazy - sent two uncomfortable work emails - didn't eat any office cupcakes - went grocery shopping hungry starving and only bought what was on my list Wednesday Goals: - woke up heavy probably from eating late and extra, so drink all the water to stay full and remove food salt - 1900 calories - work on a work thing I could avoid because it's my last week at this job. do it anyway. I have it on my calendar to work on it for an hour this morning. After work: - pack up the boots I need to return that I already submitted the exchange for on Amazon - read for 30 minutes

    never underestimate the power of being able to reach things! like when tall people leave OHP set up above my head.

    taller men get promoted more, so it's a decent life goal

    hahaha perfect gif! also, I'm slow and remembered there is also barbell club on Thursday, that's just not my day. So i'm trying to mentally convince myself to go to farfit on Thursday / Saturday. I just have this mental block where if I don't do it on the correct day I'm terrified I'll end up missing a session and get behind schedule. Yes, I'm weird and paranoid. Maybe if I write it out, I will feel better... like I have a plan and am not bailing on my Wed workout. Week's Plan: Tuesday: Christmas dinner testing Wednesday (3-5" of snow): read for 30 minutes, watch the snow from the safety of inside my home Thursday: barbell club. figure out items for Saturday's holiday party. Friday: food prep for Saturday's party (making a dessert {dessert is also a test for x-mas} and an appetizer of cranberry cornbread muffins as suggested by @Grumble ) Saturday: barbell club, SCA household holiday party. Sunday: hike with Mr T and then go to the DSW near the state park to shop for him to get some snow boots to wear into work for his new job

    the body loves to troll you with things that affect weight loss - stress - time in your cycle - salt intake - activity level - water intake - illnesses - sleep - etc there are so many factors that weight loss sometimes feels like a total crapshoot
