Nettee’s daily check in 2019

Counting carbs/calories is a drag. Obsessive scale stepping is a recipe for despair. If you want to count something, "days on habit" is a much better metric. Checking off days on a calendar would do just fine, but if you do it here you get accountability and support. Here's how. Start a new topic in this forum called (say) "Your Name Daily Check In." Then every N day post a "reply" to that topic as to whether you stayed on habit. A simple "<font color="green">SUCCESS</font>" or "<font color="red">FAILURE</font>" (or your preferred euphemism if that's too harsh) is sufficient, but obviously you're welcome to write more if you want. On S-days just register that you're taking an S-day. You don't have to do this forever, just until you're confident you've built the habit. Feel free to check in weekly or monthly or sporadically instead of daily. Feel free also to track other habits besides No-s (I'm keeping this forum under No-s because that's what the vast majority are using it for). See also my <a href="/habitcal/">HabitCal</a> tool for another more formal (and perhaps complementary) way to track habits.

Nettee’s daily check in 2019

Post by nettee » Wed Apr 17, 2019 8:11 am

Hello No S. I am restarting after a long break. Feeling positive and ready to go.

I have reread the book and am feeling remotivated.

I have two green squares on my habitcal from Monday and Tuesday and have not had any sugar withdrawal headaches yet.

I resisted chocolate at work yesterday, a major achievement after my recent red mist of sugar addiction.

I have recently been on a 12 week diet and health app program which worked beautifully for 6 weeks until I lost focus and spent the second six weeks gaining the weight back again. However I have stopped drinking caffeine, regained an enthusiasm for running and been reminded about some good principles of nutrition.

Starting weight on Monday was 13st 5.5lb (eek). Recorded here so that I can see how far I have come over the next weeks and months.

Links to my old thread and testimonial here:

My old habitcal records are really inspiring as I can see so visually how long I stuck with this before.

Here is a link to my habitcal (the ‘extra’ currently means a 20min run twice a week and a Parkrun on a Saturday):

Back tonight with another green success

Success

A good day today. So pleased to be back here on the no S board. I have downloaded the Happy scales app for recording weight loss. I enjoyed all my meals. Was very hungry by supper time but that is ok.

I am planning a run in the morning and have ordered a big food shop including some healthy and tasty no s food such as steak and pita bread among lots of other things.

Thank you both

I’ve just finished my second 20 minute run of the week and am pleased that it was further than Tuesday’s run. Next step is to see if I can go faster on Saturday’s Parkrun too.
