    Successes/struggles of the week: Overall, this week was still a bit on the high side coming down from last week which was very high, though I did see downward movement again so most of it is stubborn water weight. I had a great day for steps one day last week with over 22k steps.

    Successes/Struggles:
    I’m annoyed, I was under 50 kg at the beginning of the week but popped up to 50.3 on Friday after spending over 5 hours in the car on Thursday and it’s not going away. I've been averaging over 50 kg for three months now.

    I still have a couple of weeks before my next holiday to get a kg off.

    Success: My weight was down all week. Even below my range weight for one day. It's funny how that doesn't bother me as being .5 over my range.

    Struggle: I had company for dinner. ate out once and had an unusal schedule. This my excuse for not logging as I should, off my meal plan, and my exercise routines. It's a miracle that I didn't gain.

    So sorry to hear about the biking accident! Scary. Glad you're okay but makes sense that you opted out of the activity.

    Successes/struggles of the week:
    Sept 2 was a long day of travel by car (11 hours) and we have the same tomorrow. Hard to get movement in when you're in the car that long. I also overindulged at a wedding where I hadn't seen family in many years. However, I did dance the night away and felt good afterwards (no soreness). Love what my body can do for me now!

    Successes/struggles of the week:
    Struggle would be the excessive amount of dining out we are doing on this vacation, and the indulgence level of those meals. We have also been driving a lot so it hasn't been as offset with activity as it normally would be. The second half of this vacation should be more active. I could definitely make better choices but I know regardless that I'll have weight to work on losing after this vacation.

    Successes/struggles of the week: Haven't been sleeping well lately, which hasn't helped with getting my weight back down into range, as I'm waking up later and cutting my workouts short as a result, and have been unmotivated to put in much effort into the workouts. I'm reevaluating my workouts and thinking that maybe changing things up a bit and adding a new workout goal will help.

    Successes/struggles of the week:
    The only item I could truly define as a success is that I didn't stop logging my food.
    However, I overate like crazy and I was more sedentary than normal.
    I still have a lot to learn about how to moderate on vacation.
    I feel completely confident I'll get back on track, but I definitely overdid it.

    Sept 26th: I will be away on holiday!

    I’m very disappointed with myself. I wanted to be down to 49 kg before setting off on holiday. I’ve been leaving about 200 calories on the table every day but only lost a few grams. I’m clearly either under-estimating my calories in or over-estimating calories out. Probably the latter – I’m struggling with cardio exercise as my arthritis pain is troubling me.

    My average now for September is 50 kg and I’m away now until early October.

    This holiday should be very active and we are self - catering (eating out in the evenings) so hopefully not too much weight gain.
    I will have to exert self control over the beer and ice -cream!
