I am trying really hard to decrease my time on the computer, so that means I try not to check out any new journals and generally don't go on the main forum. That is why I like the EMF thread so much. It is very positive (in the sense that no one is attacking or being attacked for what they write, but it is ok to write things that are not going well) and supportive and brought in people I had not seen before and some I don't see often.
I have made my news feed on MFP only show the EMF journal people. It is awesome cause it give nice little shots of what everyone is doing.
Ok, so yesterday went well, I am back on track. That was easy! Today I must go grocery shopping we have nothing in the house to eat!
Carbs: 30g/7% (35g)
Fat: 138g/75% (140g)
Protein 72g/17% (70g)
On the sleep front. I was exhausted last night, it was uncomfortable to actually have to sit on the couch. So I decided to go to bed before I made a questionable decision regarding food. I got into bed by 8:45! Slept till 6:45! Actual sleep time was 9:11, with an efficiency of 92%!
I feel good!
Oh that is some great sleep! I am sleeping great as well except for a certain husband who gets home from work and wakes me up at 1:30 am for some snuggling time. Not really complaining...
I find it easier to get back on track on this plan.
When I look at my sleep chart, I can see when Dh comes to bed, he knows better than to wake me up for anything though, sleep is sacred. I do miss snuggling though now that I get to bed on time, he comes in hours later, so we will need to work on an alternative.
It is way easier to get on track with this plan, I agree. I also am finding it easier to get my carbs down now without having to rely on doing Net carbs. My goal now is to do the 35g of carbs by straight counting and to get 20g Net. And I am going to work hard to do at least one month straight of the 35g. Which technically means I just started a couple of days ago. Oh well, it is all a learning experience.
Paula, thanks so much for starting the EMF thread, it seems to be very successful, and is a great place for support.
I'm thrilled at how well it is going. I really love the spill over to MFP as well. Makes me excited about tracking.
I agree..we have a great group I think.
yes, I admit I was a little worried that one of the more zealous anti-fatters would show up and mess things up. and I also like seeing what everyone else is eating, I think it wil really help in the long run. this is like doing a WW type support group, only better. I really think that it will make a difference in our success.
I agree Chris. I was also worried we would get a carb crazy person posting and criticizing.
I promise to play nice. Honestly, I am glad this plan shows promise for the four of you. I have been struggling with you and cheering for you.
honeybuns, we are so happy to have you in our group! Have you managed to start tracking yet?
So yesterday, I pre-tracked my dinner and was all happy that my stats were well within range, and even a bit low, so I made a little fat bomb with some cream cheese and cocoa powder and stevia as a treat after dinner. So this morning I am looking it over and I realize that my small burger did not get added somehow. So when I added that I was over in protein and fat! Rats, gotta wear my glasses when using the computer. Oh well, it is not horrible and my carbs and net carbs are still under so all is good.
My treadmill has been shipped, probably arrive the end of this week or the beginning of next some time. So excited.
Treadmill!!! Now you know your husband is going to be watching to make sure you are using it. Try not to kill him when he gets annoying about it. My husband is always in my exercise business. I always bite my tongue to avoid saying something back. He hasn't consistently exercised in years.
