A for it girls!

This month I want to try a challenge not to weigh myself until June 1. I will use Habitcal for that.

No S:

30 01 02 03 04 05 06
07 08 09 10 11 12 13
14 15 16 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26 27
28 29 30 31


No scale:


30 01 02 03 04 05 06
07 08 09 10 11 12 13
14 15 16 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26 27
28 29 30 31

One day at a time for me.

No sweets

01: πŸ”΄ (chocolate bar after supper)
02: βœ…
03: πŸ”΄ (ice cream in the afternoon)
04: βœ…
05: πŸ”΄ (dessert after supper - theoretically since it’s Saturday I would put a yellow - but I had a second piece in the evening so I mark it red)
06: πŸ”΄ (chocolate bar)
07: πŸ”΄ (after supper rice pudding topped off with big bowl of cereal - out of control eating)
08: πŸ”΄ rice pudding in the evening
09: πŸ”΄ rice pudding again
10: βœ…
11:

Walk or other exercise minimum 15 min/day
(will be happy with 4 times per week as a start)

01: βœ… 20 min walk
02: βœ… 25 min walk
03: πŸ”΄
04: πŸ”΄
05: πŸ”΄
06: πŸ”΄
07: πŸ”΄ (for the exercise, in my defense, I’ve have had a bad cold for the last 2 weeks and just getting my work day done has taken the little energy I had left)
08: βœ… 15 min walk
09: βœ… 25 min walk
10: πŸ”΄
11:

I'd like to challenge myself to only weigh once a week.

Like the idea of a month but that would be pushing it Smile

I'm in on my first challenge!

Mine is Vanilla NoS-

Arrow Arrow Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Smile
Smile Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Smile
Smile Mr. Green Mr. Green Smile Mr. Green Mr. Green Smile
Smile Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Smile
Smile Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green

I'm doing no-weigh-May and will weigh in on or around June 7 due to company coming in and my DD's wedding shower in early June.

Notes:
Wednesday evening will be a NWS day because I am doing wedding cake tasting with my DD.

Final Note:

Good month!! NoS was great- stayed on track, with one NWS for a cake tasting day with my DD for her upcoming wedding.

DID NOT WEIGH for all of May; will weigh sometime in the first week or so of June after the bridal shower and company leaves town.

I'll keep on tracking No-S days and steps. Good luck everybody!

No-S
Arrow Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green
Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed Mr. Green Embarassed Mr. Green Mr. Green
Shocked Shocked Embarassed 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26 27
28 29 30 31

8k steps
Arrow Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green
Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green
Shocked Shocked Mr. Green 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26 27
28 29 30 31

1 - Upped my steps to 8k. I expect to be walking 10k steps by the end of this month since i've been having very little pain and feel actually excited to exercise.

8 and 9 - Two really hard and exhaustive days. I really need to rest. Work is crazy and life is always a hurry. Crying or Very sad

12 - 16 - I'been sick and my eating was all over the place... meaning sometimes i ate several times a day but really small quantities or i just couldn't eat at other times. This emoticon Shocked is for the days when i was at my worst and i have no idea if they should be green or red. I'm still not 100% but i'm back to my 8k steps and my 3 meals a day.

Ohhh ... how happy I am, Soprano! Smile I have failed miserably in not weighing myself, but we are only on the third day of the month, so I am still in time to achieve it. Tomorrow I will try not to step on the scale.

Hey if I can do it so can you. I have one more day then it's a week.

It's killing me though, my dress felt looser today and I'm dying to know Smile

It's fantastic!!!!!

Today I have returned to weigh me. And my weight takes my hair so much (I'm only 100 grams away from seeing a drop) that now I do not regret it until after this month.

Sure, that was my original plan. BUT I took some of the awful sweet decadent dessert instead of sticking with the healthy nuts & cheese. Rolling Eyes
My lack of enjoyment for that sweet should be a good lesson, hopefully well learned. Thanks for your compassion.

Congratulations Soprano, I'm glad!

I've been three days, and I've realized that what seems impossible to change, with the habit becomes infinitely easier. This morning I did not even have to think about it, I did not get on the scale and that's it!

I will try to arrive until June 1 as I proposed Smile

How are the no-weighers doing?
Holding strong and have not weighed all of May. Plan on keeping it that way until June 7 or thereabouts!
