    Idk how much of my morning lazyness is "it is hot in my apt" and how much is still being sick. Once I get done w back and core I am swapping attempts at home workouts in the am for walks in the park, I think.

    Lazy Day
    Back and Core - very glad bridge w reach was only 10 sec a side, lol

      269 dares, 214 w ec. 519 day streak



          Weekly digest
          3/4 drinks
          39 miles
          2300 cals
          all the recovery days
          none of the lifting


            I am getting very unhappy w self from a vanity perspective, and my pants are getting tight, honestly. I need to get my act together. It is just 10-15 lbs at this point but I need to stop this weight creep before it's more. So new plan for the next 6 weeks:

            1-lift twice a week to preserve strength but don't worry if no big gains
            2 - eat between 1600-1900 cals (rounded up both bmr and sedentary maintenance)
            3 - walk at least 50 miles/week

            Will reassess after 6 weeks and see if I need another cycle or not.


              First day back at lifting. I am fucking WRECKED.

                The best part part right here.


                  Today is going to be a very long day. Going into work at 11. Staying through inventory (so, at least 11 pm). This is sort of like a vacation inventory for me, tho... I did not have to lay sheets, I did not have to do the prep work.... it is going to be easy peasy, just pretend I know nothing and scan things LOL. Packed my foods for the day so that I stay the fuck out of whatever sugary nonscence they bring in for us tonight. As much bc sugar at night just makes me crash as to watch my calories, rly.

                  Recovery Day
                  Back and Core 25 - or, flailing around my apt like a lunatic

                  Going to walk to the train (2.5 miles) instead of busing to it this morning.

                    Inventory was, as expected, a long day. But I got out at the perfect time - managed to get on the last bus from the subway end to my apt and save myself a walk in the dark (and an annoyed husband) or a cab fare, so, win. Ended up going off my meal plan tho. I had brought beef jerky and dried cherries to try to keep myself out of whatever snack they had, and planned not to eat when I got home. Ya..... had some absurd afternoon slump so I got a biscotti and a coffee (altho, biscotti would of still fit into the day) then they had salted peanuts in the snack tray so I had those instead of my jerky which brought me right to the top of caloric allowance..... then I was all keyed up when I got home and had a cider and some cheese/chorizo/pickles. Still.... only a 2400 cal day but, I am going to need to be super careful if I want my weekly average to be within my goal window. /sigh

                    Slept in this morning bc ofc . Back and legs are gloriously Domsy.

                        seriously! Like, some kind of gmo tinkering to turn like, half or 2/3 of the fat in the nut into protein instead but somehow keep the glorious flavor/crunch/portability etc. That would get the calories just low enough so that trying to fit them into a reduced cal diet did not involve super careful measuring of miserly portions LOL.


                          Thx, now I have to open some nuts!


                            I am liking this walk to the train in the am thing
