    Successes/struggles of the week: Had my best indoor AND outdoor runs this past week!

    Setting myself to .5 less a week to get to my lower maintenance messed with my head a bit at first and last week was rough, but this week I am feeling motivated and happy. Just need to remember to include treats often in my logging and counts! I was focused on food as fuel solely and saying “no” to small treats is never a good idea! :)

    Success of the week: I discovered some fun new (to me) foods to cook. I pan fried some apples of all things. I even had a fresh bagel - it's been months.

    Struggle of the week: I had a bout of emotional eating. I did get through it. So far. It's not over yet.

    Successes/struggles of the week: Grateful that the weather was nice enough to get 2 outdoor runs in this past week. I really don’t like being on a treadmill.

    Doing okay working towards the lower end of maintenance and glad I have the happy scale app to smooth out. My weight fluctuates SO much throughout the week (+/- 4 lbs on any given day despite eating mostly the same things) that seeing a regular line is really helpful.

    Success of the week: Not really a personal "success" per se, but a success because I made it around the year to now again. I got to see the sun set on my bike ride home from work one day this week. Might be the only day. It will set later next week, so I might be already home or past the places I can view it. It's also just a little bit light when I head off to work in the morning. The sun doesn't rise until after I get to work, but it's a little light. That will change when we reset the clocks in a few weeks, at least for another couple weeks.

    Struggle of the week: I don't want to write about it.

    Successes/struggles of the week: Kids were sick and sleep was non-existent this week. It messed with my hunger, and I absolutely overate this weekend. Still coming down off the water weight. Thankfully the past 2 nights have been better and I’m back to eating normal and have energy to exercise again. It is what it is - life happens.

    Successes/struggles of the week: One indulgent day mid-week combined with TOM water retention meant several weigh-ins on the higher end. Keeping up with workouts though and have been starting to cook more again too.

    Note for the week: My bike commute continues to be faster most days unless I'm just taking it slow which is also nice. A friend keeps giving me produce from her CSA box because she is only one person and can't eat it all. I get to cook and share some of what I cook because... I can't eat it all. Win for everyone. But it seems I'm enjoying all that food a little too much.

    Successes/struggles of the week: Not too bad a week but really slacked off on the ST and walking. Also, struggling with keeping sodium in limits. Too much processed food. Too much screen time this week.
    I did, however, get my 5 freggies every day and upped the water intake a little.
