I very much enjoy reading your log. Wishing you the best. Traveling makes it hard to stay on task. For me, going out socially seems to lead me off course.

Thanks. Yup, traveling and social events are tough, although now that I'm older and have a kiddo, it's a lot easier. It's not just that I go to fewer events where alcohol is present, but also because there's a lot less social pressure to drink at these events than when I was in my 20s or even early 30s. Aging has its benefits.

10/29: Week 8, Day 6
intake: refeed + social dinner
steps: 7800
workout: upper body + 45 min LISS

Sunday was a refeed day. Ate the usual, plus about a half a bag of pretzels. Dinner was beef stew and a salad at a friend's house. Decent macros, in theory, but she cooks with a lot more fat than I do. That's probably why it was so tasty!

10/30: Week 8, Day 7
intake: on point
workout: arms, abs, and elliptical

10/31: Week 9, Day 1
intake: good, no candy!
workout: none
morning weigh-in: 152. Hope some of this is refeed/water/TOM weight!

11/1: Week 9, Day 2
intake: calories under maintenance, but less protein & more carb than I'd like (traveling!)
workout: 1 hour walking

11/2: Week 9, Day 3
intake: good
workout: none
steps: low

The work trip is going reasonably well so far, diet-wise. Breakfast was plain Greek yogurt and coffee, lunch was salad and the inside of a deli chicken sandwich without the bread, and dinner was a skimpy little chicken breast, veggies, salad, and water. I'm drinking way too much coffee, but at least I'm making the best food choices I can given the options.

This morning (11/3) I was up at 3:30 am because of the time zone change. Went to the hotel gym at 4:45 and had it to myself until around 5:30. It's going to be a long day.

11/3: Week 9, Day 4
intake: low on protein & cals. Greek yogurt, coffee, deli chicken, chicken, veggies.
workout: free weight squats plus upper body (hotel gym, no pull-up bar)
steps: 8644

11/4: Week 9, Day 5
intake: OK. yogurt, salad, chicken, and grilled fish. Had some black beans, too, which weren't RFL friendly of course
workout: 30 min elliptical + abs (hotel gym)
steps: 11,341

11/5: Week 9, Day 6
intake: OK. Had 2 Quest bars throughout the day, 2nd as part of evening refeed
workout: none, travel day
steps: 7427

11/6: Week 9, Day 7
workout: lower body and 5! (factorial) pullups
steps: not complete yet, but probably 9000
intake: yogurt, tuna, and whatever is for dinner!

Notes: I'm back from the work trip. I think I did reasonably well, all things considered, but it could be an interesting weigh-in tomorrow morning.

Lifts were up a bit in the gym, including squats and pullups. Given how sensitive my body weight pullups are to, well, my body weight (!), I can't have gained too much whilst traveling.

Basically 2 weeks until the American Thanksgiving holiday. Probably should use the week for a mini-diet break, then hit the diet hard for the last 4 weeks before vacation. Would love to be 20 pounds down (144) when I leave, but we'll see!

Thanks, Magpie and Liberty!

11/7: Week 10, Day 1
intake: OK, not perfect
workout: upper body. Bench is back up to 120. Better, but still 35 lbs less than my one-time work set weight.
steps: 8000

11/8: Week 10, Day 2
intake: OK, not perfect
workout: none
steps: 6600

The last couple of days have been a bit of a struggle, diet-wise. I wouldn't say that I've blown the diet, just that I haven't been as rigorous as I should be for a true RFL. I think it's because the end is in sight, and I've also had to deal with more work-related dinners and lunches. Plus, I'm getting really, really, really, REALLY sick of stewed chicken breasts and canned tuna.

11/9: Week 10, Day 3
intake: OK, not perfect
workout: none
steps: 6,600

11/10: Week 10, Day 4
intake: on target
workout: 1 hr LISS
steps: 13,167

11/11: Week 10, Day 5 morning weigh-in: 147.6 (-0.4, -16.4)

I have 40 days before vacation, not including American Thanksgiving. Weight loss and motivation are both flagging a bit.

Given this, I think a good target is 144, which would be an even 20 pounds down from my start weight. This would still be 4-5 pounds more than my weight in the avatar picture, and I was carrying more muscle then, too. But, I was also 7 years younger, and in the best shape of my life. That's a tough baseline!
