Goals are nice to have, but IIFYM is there for a reason ;)

And unfortunately none of those things ever fit my macros lol

 

I don't have an OFF switch. Once I start eating, I don't stop when I'm full. I stop when there is no more food.

All you can eat potato chips are not good to be around in that case.

The key for me when at a social event is using my calories on actual food and not on snacks or drinks.  If I start to allow myself to pick at snack things, I will eat the whole bowl.  Similarly with drinks - be it beer, pop, or milk (my favorite), I will use up all of my calories without actually eating anything unless I stay on point.  I like to alternate a glass or 2 of water for every other type of drink I get.

ISTEP - we got another Hoosier here?

Technically - yes. But, I'm from Lake County, so the rest of the state doesn't claim me.

My family are southside Chicago refugees. So I'm a fellow Region Rat as well. I live near Indy now, and yeah, it's a little weird down here.

Awesome!  It's always nice to meet someone else from the Region.

 

You're right about it being weird down there (I lived in West Lafayette for 5 years).  Soda, the Colts, St. Louis Cardinals - very confusing.

Of course soda (not pop), and the St. Louis Cardinals. There are no other valid options for either of those things.

 

Just out of curiosity, what is your daily calorie goal? 15 lbs in a month is extremely impressive.

According to Lose It!, it is approximately 2000.  I feel that 15 lbs may have been a little too ambitious, but I wanted to go for it and even if I only 10-12 lbs, I will consider it to be a success.

How are we doing CJ?

I'm well, life has been crazy this past week and I haven't done a great job of keeping on track with my exercise or diet, but today was a better day and I was able to get back on track.  I worked with my trainer and did a number of circuits with bodyweight and dumbbell exercises.  I also stayed under my calorie goal for the day, so 2 successes for me today.  Now, I need to translate that into success tomorrow.

Yesterday, I did a good job of staying at my calorie goal (it was close), but a combination of getting ready for moving Thursday and my niece's birthday party prevented me from getting my workout in.  I am so happy to be almost done with renovating and moving, I am totally ready to have one day where there are no major projects that need to be done and no boxes to pack/unpack.  One day...

You must give much praise in the Iron Sanctuary to be blessed with gains.

That's the best thing after a move, once you've got things unboxed and you can just stop for a while and look around.

Yesterday, my fiance and I made the big move into our new house.  It was an exciting (and exhausting) day.  I didn't do any extra lifting, but I am pretty sure transferring 2 moving truck loads worth of our possessions counts as some sort of exercise.  Yesterday, was also the first time I really noticed how much stronger I felt since I have started lifting weights - boxes/furniture seemed light, stairs seemed easy, and I was able to keep my energy levels up through most of the day.  That has me really excited to keep going and training even harder.
