    2500 calories and don’t let missing the weekly average be an excuse to go farther off the rails: 4009 qualifies as off e rails. 3068 average for the week

    For Thursday, it’s a new day. I have self discipline in so many aspects of my life and have proven in 2020 that I can be disciplined in diet and exercise.

    2000 calories:
    Work out for 84 minutes:
    Make good choices:
    Support my bride:
    Train the dog:

    Train the dog:Bride beat me to it
    Eat dinner at the table and walk afterwards, both unplugged: Didn’t stroll but ate at the table
    Don’t eat on the couch:Snacked but didn’t get out of control
