1. No cheats - on plan food only. To aid with this I am taking a small notepad with me and when I see something I think I will throw in my mouth I am going to write it down instead. Not much on the table at work today - the candy from my mom I put there. Not tempting to me. Busy day at work - ate my food when I got home. No time for a break. I was satisfied with my food and I am making some really good stuff for myself this weekend - all LC.

1. No cheats - on plan food only. To aid with this I am taking a small notepad with me and when I see something I think I will throw in my mouth I am going to write it down instead. Well, I'm giving myself a roll-eyes today. It's my birthday and the "series of unfortunate events" continues. My new phone doesn't work like it should (can't make calls and GPS is out most of the time) and I ran out of propane again. I caved on a fast food snack where the only offending ingredient was bread crumbs, but there it is. I am not discouraged - going the 1st 90 days and then up to day 40 without cheats is amazing to me - and so far impossible to achieve. I won't indulge further, am feeling good about sticking with it going forward. No propane means the dinner I was going to make is not going to happen. I did make the cake layers yesterday so I can just do cocoa whipped cream in stead of the LC frosting I now can't make. Moving on.

Kat!! Sorry to hear of your continuing bad luck. Goodonya for not caving further. That can be the hard part: not turning a minor poor choice into a full-blown case of the awfuckits.

I've not been very attentive to the goals of my 90 day challenge in recent days. Having recently learned that I've cut the calcium buildup in my arteries by more than half based on my latest heart calcium scan I'm sort of in shell shocked mode about my diet. Something (maybe many things) that I've done over the past few years appears to be working, but as many of you know I've tweaked and changed things up regularly. I'm currently rethinking about what I want to be doing going forward. When I settle down on my plan I will restart this challenge. I won't be gone for long.

Ken, that's excellent news... though frustrating that you can't look into that crystal ball and see what caused what. Don't be a stranger, see ya soon.

After 10 days of ad lib eating (mostly OMAD) my weight has been super stable. I wondered how people could go for such long stretches and post the same number over and over, know it know. It's pretty cool what can do on its own without pretending the will has anything to do with it.

Default Day 41 & 42 - 90 days ends Jul 7

Was so tired last night, went straight to bed. Worked, and worked both jobs today, working again tomorrow night and both jobs on Thu. We are down a shelver at the fav library so I am reaping the extra hours.

1. No cheats - on plan food only. To aid with this I am taking a small notepad with me and when I see something I think I will throw in my mouth I am going to write it down instead. Did ok. Once you cave it's not easy to not just keep screwing up all day but I managed. Mental notes: fast food places. Bread. Pasta. Sugary desserts in grocery store. At work on table: leftover great looking homemade sugary cookies and bars, sweet tea.

Ken: see you soon - sometimes we just need to tweak.
