    ok, totally stealing this idea, thanks P!

    Optimal Health Plan with Rumble Strips

    1) FOOD
    All carbs from veggies and seasonal fruits
    Fat fast till 4:30 most days (all calories from fat)
    doing 3:2:2=
    --at least 2 days of 550 calories or less
    --up to 2 days of 1300 calories or less
    --4 days of thoughtful eating to hunger (about 2,100 calories)

    2) DATA
    Weigh and Measure 1x/week (Saturdays) Track in journal or MFP.
    Track food every evening (check food rumble strips)

    3) EXERCISE
    Working on N.E.A.T....for now, eventually add in Tabata
    -10,000 steps a day
    -10 flights of stairs
    ---computer time at home less than 1 hour
    ---use upstairs bathroom
    ---30 minutes on treadmill every day

    4) SLEEP
    to get to where I don't need an alarm to wake up (about 7.5 hours of actual sleep)
    To bed by 10

    5) BINGES
    I find I am not having trouble with this as long as I stick to the 3:2:2 plan (which I did very well with for 2.5 months, so back to it!)

    6) SYSTEMS
    Use journal to evaluate daily.
    Re-evaluate weekly to be sure I have not aimed too high or too low.

    p.s. to me the rumble strip is about having a very specific path to follow with very specific limits. So things like saying I am going to work on my N.E.A.T. would not be enough, but adding that I will get 10,000 steps a day and 10 flights of stairs makes it specific enough.

    that's what friends are for! I am sure you saw that I stole it from P!

    So evaluating yesterday...

    1. -all my carbs didn't come from veggies and fruits
    +did well with the fat fast till 4:30,
    +had a moderate day (accidentally)

    2. N/A today

    3.-didn't get the 10,000 steps or the 10 flights of stairs
    +actually managed to be on the computer less than an hour, barely
    -forgot to use the upstairs bathroom
    -no treadmill

    4. -+, 10:15, slept till 6:30, but quality was poor

    5. + no problem

    6. + workin' it!

    got up this morning, made my iced coffee and then the iced green tea for work, took my coffee downstairs and got on the treadmill ..."Dancing queen, oh yeah"....then came upstairs and cleaned the kitchen, finished just in time to get ready for work.

    1) FOOD
    ++yesterday was a very successful down day, I was under the 550 mark, and I did not focus on food I actually got stuff accomplished.
    ++11 total carbs (not net!), 5 from my dairy, 6 from veggies

    2) DATA
    ++tracked food as I went, even planned ahead!

    3) EXERCISE
    Working on N.E.A.T....for now, eventually add in Tabata
    -8,034 steps
    -9 flights of stairs=sooo close
    +computer time at home less than 1 hour, but I do have the phone gotta watch that as well
    +-used upstairs bathroom at work, forgot at home
    ++30 minutes on treadmill

    4) SLEEP
    +-got into bed by 10:15, slept 7:06, 91% efficiency, with 5 wake ups.

    5) BINGES
    ++nope, not even close

    6) SYSTEMS
    + working it

    I got to working, cleaning up this morning and lost track of time, no time for the treadmill, won't have a chance tonight either. Tomorrow, treadmill very first thing and I can do the rest when I get back up stairs, because technically cleaning is never done and I can do it till I run out of time, the treadmill is a finite time so it needs to come first.

    I have to take tomorrow off of work so I can pick DS up from camp. I will use the rest of the day to finish the church craft projects, grocery shop, and make the food for Saturday night's concert picnic.

    Today is an up/moderate day.

    thanks Ruth, one day at a time!

    1) FOOD
    --not sure if yesterday was a moderate or an up day, I held off eating till 4:30, but then had Raspberry Sangria (I made it), cheese, and dried zucchini with dip while company was here. Then didn't eat dinner (dah) but then got hungry later, so I ended up having a bowl of cereal-blah, wheat and late

    2) DATA
    I wrote down what I ate in the MFP food notes

    3) EXERCISE
    Working on N.E.A.T....for now, eventually add in Tabata
    -5931 (I think, fitbit is not wanting to sync so I am not sure it that is all of the steps from yesterday but since I didn't do the treadmill and crafted after work, it is probably true)
    -12 flights of stairs! BAM, I may not have walked around much but I did so was obviously going up!
    ---my computer time was limited, but I crafted
    ---I did remember to use the upstairs bathroom most of the time
    ---no treadmill yesterday

    4) SLEEP
    --7:19, woke up 3 times, 93% efficiency

    5) BINGES
    --nope, I ate, but it was planned

    6) SYSTEMS
    --all good
