    I'm shooting for the 3-5 fruits and veggies & 64 ounces of water a day.

    Goal: 2500 + mini challenge

    09/01 Day 1: calories burned (how they were burned) 4 F&V (5 if you count sweet potato fries) and 48 ounces of water
    09/02 Day 2: 200 calories burned (mini cycle) 4.5 F& V & 64 ounces of water
    09/03 Day 3: calories burned (how they were burned)
    09/04 Day 4: calories burned (how they were burned)

    November was a rough month for me between oral surgery followed up by a nasty case of the flu. It's been tough to eat well and working out has not been an option. I'm ever so slowly regaining my energy, but I have a lot of home/life priorities that have taken back burner for too long, so it's a balance. I hope to be gradually increasing my exercise over the month of December, but either way I'll try to post my mini goal progress.

    Sometimes life just gets too crazy/busy and it's hard to focus on other things! Hope, you feel better soon!

    This sounds great, but unfortunately, I am really under the weather this week. Chest hurts when I breathe and cough, ankle still sore and swollen, exhausted. I hope to be back in next week.

    Another step back for a bit. Had some gum tissue biopsied today, so my mouth is all messed up again. I did manage to get my water today. Small victories, right?
