Weekly check in, or maybe it's been two weeks.
7/1-Sat = Yellow -Walked 3 M
7/2-Sun = Yellow -Walked 3 M
7/3-Mon = Green -No walk
7/4-Tues = Yellow(4th of July holiday)-Walk 3 M
7/5-Wed = Green, Walked 3 M, swimming with gr. kids.

7/6-Thurs.= Fail(driving home from concert in Md. and stopped for coffee and Tastycake krimpets at close to midnight, which I split with wife)
a.m. light rain this morning, hopefully walk later. started day at dentist, which took forever. Gave me some type of treatment telling me at 10:20 that I can't eat for four hours, wonderful timing.

7/7-Friday = Success
a.m. pouring rain storm, so walk will have to come later.
p.m. Bike rides with kids and swim in pool. My granddaughter who's a very mature almost 11 year old is getting a bit much to throw around in the pool, so my back is complaining now.

I dont' know how I got out of sync with your check-in. I'm still envious of your consistent exercise.

I"m not sure if you're looking for any other feedback than just keep going. I know that honestly there were many times in the past I was struggling but also wasn't really willing to do that much more to change, and I wasn't very good about taking suggestions, though I think I usually kept that to myself. I hope.

Habit theory says that bright lines, keeping track, and rewarding success with very little drama over failure has the most bang for the buck. It sounds like you're doing most or all of that.

Thanks oolala, I do appreciate your comments. I'm fairly consistent with my exercise and had some slip ups with my No S habit. We keep too many snacks around the house for grand kids who are with us during their parents' work day, so it's where I struggle.

7/8-Sat
a.m.-Walked 3 M; 1-1/2 hrs of yard work. Planning on restarting the Five Tibetan rites on Monday.

Do you think you could possibly just regard the snacks as THEIR food, food that is just not yours (even though you paid for it!)? Almost like a medication they need, but you don't? I dunno.

In France, only children are thought to need to snack, and they do it between lunch and dinner only. The adults don't allow themselves the option. They don't eat any of the "snack" food with them or not. It's just a mindset. Children eat snacks. Adults don't.

It doesn't have to happen overnight, or ever....

(edit) @oolala, trying to implement your ideas on considering snacks belonging to g.k.'s. Want to work with wife on substituting more fruits and healthy snacks for them over cookies, pastry, etc, etc.
p.m. two bike rides and pool swim with g.k.'s

7/11-Tues =S day(wasn't feeling well in p.m.)
a.m. T5TR
Walked 3 M.
p.m. -no other activ's. Had a late night snack, since I ate a very light dinner. I think our appetites tell us when we're feeling better.

7/12-Wed = Success
a.m.-planned walk after breakfast, which today was a cheese bagel, coffee, and OJ, and that felt like too much.
Walked 3 M-very hot and humid already at 9:00 a.m.
Dinner was spaghetti and meatballs, one helping of spagh. about 5-6 mb's, but wife doesn't make them huge, salad with blue cheese--no hunger pangs all evening.

7/13-Thurs = Fail
going to skip walk today, sore toe that probably got hurt with kids in pool. So I'll make the effort to do a kbell/cals workout this afternoon.
p.m. kbell/cals workout. Fin. a project outside on my deck swing, and the heat made me cut my workout short.

7/14-Fri = Success
a.m. T5TR-early
Longer bike ride with g.s. than normal
p.m. garage workout 88 deg. F/67% Rel hmdty-fin. a 16 oz. bottle of water

7/15-Sat
a.m. T5TR; Walk 3 M
p.m. started tear down on my 10 x 12 wooden garden shed that I built about 35-40 years ago. Seriously hard work physically.

More demo work today to my wife's chagrin. Too nice a day to sit around.

7/17-Mon = Success
a.m.-T5TR
a.m.-p.m.: demo work continues for my phys activ's.
p.m. swim with grandkids.
dinner was roast beef with potatoes in crock pot and salad/blue cheese dressing.

7/18-Tues = Success
a.m. T5TR(@15r's )
no walk today, was doing a home improv. project for daughter all day.
Wife had a late dr. apt. with specialist so we ate out for dinner.
dinner was a meatball sub and ff's-not healthy but it met my req's. She did somewhat better with veg. lasagna and a tossed salad.

7/19-Wed = Fail
a.m. T5TR
Walked 3+ Miles; 70% humidity and very hot today.
I managed to hurt my r. shldr today so I will not be doing any activ's upper body related for a while, other than rehab stuff.
