First I wanted to get out of the Covid-19 riskzone. Then I gave me a goal to do horse riding again after many years. But in fact it is just natural to be in good shape. So: back to nature!

Me at 4pm yesterday: I QUIT FOR TODAY. I am taking the day off!! I don't feel good. I'm in a bad mood. I have ALL the PMS. It's humid and I don't WANT to work out.

Me at 10:30pm yesterday: Dang it!! FINE!! I'll get on the treadmill.

I have exercised over 30 minutes and burned over 1000 cals a day for 205 days. I just couldn't bring myself to break my streak. Eventually my streak will end. But it will be because of some outside force, not just me letting it slip away. And on that day, I'm gonna be pissed.

Wow ! 1000 kcal for 205 days. Thats an enormous effort. So don't take the day as a fault. It's only a break or a little and necessary regeneration.
Enjoy yourself. It's a good time to watch others doing sports. A good alternation to the used routine.
And when you're ready for it, you will really enjoy getting back on the treadmill :notes:

Yesterday, I watched the equestrians. And was so happy, the German equipe got the gold medal. US Team on the Silver position. For me, it's a great joy to see the harmony between man/woman and horse.

Loving the gymnastics, skateboarding, surfing, soccer, taekwondo, synchronized diving. I was sad to hear that Simone Biles had such a bad injury that she may be out the rest of the Olympics. She's the star of the US gymnastics team

I think I'm somehow managing to undo my catastrophic failure that was the first half of July.. if I really stick to the plan I should be able to meet my goal for this round. I've upped my exercise, upped my protein, upped my water. Just have to keep it all upped!

I've noticed there is a relation between the amount of water I drink and the number of steps (to the bathroom) I take. More water = more daily steps.

Missy and Lani,
you can make it. plateaus and failures are there for learning and fastening your motivation.
And: Matthew, at least it's clear to us why a higher water intake is good for weight loss :joy:

  • I'm participating in the Virtual STP (Seattle To Portland). This is the first time it has ever been Virtual, but previously it is a ~200 mile bike ride between Seattle, WA & Portland, OR over 1 or 2 days.

    This year they are doing it virtually and giving people 20 days to accumulated the 200 miles. Over the last 3 days I have 108 miles. Over half way completed.

Today's weigh in is disheartening. I have my work cut out for me going forward. Ugh.

When you feel disheartened pretend like you are Indiana Jones in the Temple of Doom and fight back.
