I check in here every Friday, but my fitness week is Monday – Sunday. So my check-ins are always about a week behind.

Last Week (November 16 – November 22, 2020):

Life feels like a whirlwind right now. I just keep getting through each day, and I forget what I did soon after. I sort of gave up last Friday when I purchased wine, Ben and Jerry’s, candy, and chips… I’ve been enjoying my walks, but did take a rest day last week. I know the upcoming weeks will be harder.

Weight: Down 1.4 pounds (maintaining weight).

Goals: I did a good job, but I did splurge and overeat on the days I didn’t keep under my goal calories. Basically more of the same. I have found I’m doing better with alcohol by limited days rather than total amount. It’s the little things…

Don’t forget to join the Facebook Group and check in with us there!
