I think that is artificially low with dehydration. But who knows? The scale can be a capricious thing. My official weigh-in for the challenge is Saturday mornings.
I’m proud of myself this morning for getting my shoulder exercises done. I’m still on the bike and will get sit-ups and push-ups (wall) when I’m done pedaling. I’ve fallen into a routine of the shoulder exercises, sit-ups, and wall push-ups on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. But I can’t codify that, because my routine is always evolving and changing. Exercise is non-negotiable, but with some at-home days coming up, it may change from bike to walk. I may sleep in, if Benji allows, and be active at a different time of day.
One thing that must continue is my food tracking and awareness for the challenge. I constantly forget that I have eaten something. Since I track as the day goes along, I need to be doubly careful to write down everything as I plan my dinner and maybe some evening popcorn. It’s so disheartening to eat the popcorn and then remember, “oh, yeah, I had those pears and forgot to track them” and then be over the calorie limit. More often it’s a piece of chocolate, peanut butter, or some nuts that I’ve forgotten and puts me over my calories! Oh, well - live and learn!
Wishing you graceful changes and lifelong learning!
