I got a new Fitbit for Christmas because my old one was being weird, and I was so determined to reach my 10,000 steps/day goal every day in January. I was doing great until Monday, when I fractured my skull because some guy left his car door open in the dark and I smashed into it with my bike... Guess I'll try February instead, because I'm lucky if I get even 1,000 steps in a day now.
Holy crap, you're lucky you weren't injured worse than fracturing your skull. There are a lot of distracted drivers out there for sure ; my boss walked into work one day with his bike in two pieces and one was to blame.

Thanks everyone! I feel a little better already, but now the rest of my body is feeling the pain of the fall. I'm sure I'll feel better soon, though.

I’ve been lazy counting my calories recently and missed a MFP log-in and broke my 636 day streak :'( I’ve also put on 5kg because I’m a snacky fatty and I need to stop.

I've put on about 10 pounds on covid-quarantine weight in the last 2 and a half weeks. Stress eating and lack of movement. No bikini bod for me this summer.

Luckily we're going into winter and I can hide until I lose it and fit back into my summer clothes..

I also gained two kilos in my quarantine. This week I plan on hard calorie counting and going for a run literally every day to get some movement.

I was really struggling to stop eating over my calories.. I was eating like 2400 each day and my TDEE is about 2000 so yea, wasn't good. I've also just felt awful for a while now. Although I've gone for a few runs here and there and I still do my 10k steps every day, I haven't done any regular exercise since like, November? My whole body just aches constantly. I just haven't felt like leaving the house or running. So I decided to go back to what sparked off my weight loss initially—Insanity: Max 30. I've also added a bit of yoga in, following the workout with Yoga With Adriene's 30 Days of Yoga thing.

Today was day 2 of both. Man, day 1 was like my first day 1 two years ago (also started in April, I guess April is my 'start getting healthy' month). Can't believe how much fitness I've lost. I went through the first 10 minutes ok then had to take a break for 2 minutes because I was dizzy. I had to skip the last round of the workout because I felt like I was going to be sick and just had to sit on the floor for 5-10 minutes. The yoga was nice. I have weak little arms and after my workout today, full of push-ups and dips that I couldn't finish, I was shaking trying to do downward dog. Makes me feel nice and relaxed after though, and I noticed I had a lot less pain when I woke up than I usually do after the first day of working out.

Managed to stay around 1500 calories yesterday and we'll see how I go today. I do feel more motivated and less snacky when I'm following an exercise schedule, though. I've added some cheese and a hardboiled egg to my regular breakfast muffin and that also seems to help keep the sugar cravings away.
