    Not so great but it has been a little harder than I thought. Today is my 30th anniversary so I am not stressing anything today.

    I took over 5.4 million steps for a distance of 2,600 miles.

    Whaaaaat? That's amazing!
    My swim will be shorter again today as I have a lot to do. Yesterday I did 28 minutes combined swimming and cardio.

    Swimming is such good exercise! I've taken lessons three times - I just don't seem to be able to get the "stroke, stroke, turn your head, breathe, kick your feet, stroke..." thing down. I suspect that I look like a monkey that someone tossed off of a boat.

    Not that I think anyone should ever toss a monkey off of a boat. Ever.

    Well the first official snowfall of the year came today. Between 2-4” topped off by rain then more snow. After it stopped, went out and started shoveling. It was so heavy but not sticking to the shovel! It took 2 hours to shovel off the drive and walks. A guy in a tractor offered to plow me out. Mom said that I should have taken him up on the offer so that he would stop again. Lesson learned. But at least it was productive exertion and the sense off accomplishment counts for something right? Plus my pants are getting snug from high calorie holiday desserts. Snowball m & ms, I’m calling you out, not to mention lactose free coconut holiday pie and chocolate chip and sugar cookies! Funny, but feel so uncomfortable just gaining this amount of weight back that am ready to work on it now. Evidently tight pants are a great motivator for me!

    Happy Tuesday!
    Looking at what went well in 2021:
    I finished the year just about twenty pounds lighter than I started. Not quite the amazing 'drop four pants sizes' result, but I'll take the progress.
    I took over 5.4 million steps for a distance of 2,600 miles.
    I made it to the gym over 100 days and they were closed January through March.

    Now if I could manage some consistency...😉

    Here's to an awesome 2022!🍾

    All I can say is WOW! That is an amazing number of steps.

    That’s the way to do it, get the exercise done before anything else. I have noticed I haven’t been getting enough water lately myself. I think it is because I am totally out of my routine.

    @Beautyofdreams
    Fantastic loss! Counselling is the best thing I ever did for my binge eating. I also have been binge eating more lately. I think lack of routine and general stress of the holidays got me. Shoveling is great exercise. I know the biggest thing that bothers with the weight I have but on over Christmas is how bloated my face gets.

    I suck at front crawl but I am good at breast stroke. I have been challenging myself to do the front crawl more often these days. I go sideways and have even banged into the ladder when doing this stroke. I am sure the others in the pool get a good laugh when I am doing this. 😂
