    August Loss - ???

    Thoughts: Odd bobble over the weekend. Was down significantly on Saturday and saw a pretty big spike Sunday. Appear to have stabilized this morning. Maybe that was me busting out of Mercury Retrograde. That's as plausible as anything else.

    I feel back on track. I've been enjoying the bounty from the farmer's market, and stayed fairly active over the weekend. My husband is recovering from a long and serious health issue. He's been trying to rebuild list strength and joined me on the trail yesterday evening. He rested on a bench while I walked ahead a bit and returned. Then he rested near the car while I made a short loop in the opposite direction. He ended up with a quarter of a mile unassisted. (That's HUGE!) I squirreled a full mile in. He wants to work up to the full trail. This is perfect! I don't like to do the trail alone and this will get me out there more often.

    August Game Plan & Goals: (Stats from Fitbit 7 Day Summary)
