    Steps 14,026

    Watch is charged again and I got in a walk at lunch and cardio insanity max 30 workout after work. Skipped my normal Friday glass of wine since I had drinks while I was away. I shouldn’t be traveling much for work which is nice. Goal is to get in a new routine with working out after work. Feels too rushed in the am and too many video calls to do it at lunch I think.

    Figuring out all the Apple Watch features finally.

    What reward for my mini goal? We had a small cake tonight. It was for losing 300 lbs but I am still just short. We didn't want it to go to waste.

    Share what your treat will be when you reach goal or your next mini goal.


    My first goal was making into the normal weight range for my height. I did that back in March of this year. That was a loss of 40 lbs. It took from 9/1/20 to sometime in mid March. I treated myself to a week at my favorite spa in Southern Utah. I took that trip last June. It was wonderful. I have been treating myself to smaller and nicer clothing as I have continued to lose. I have been wanting this wonderful pair of Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots. I was going to wait till goal to get them. However, I haven't focused on a goal weight. Anyway, Hubs encouraged to get them now. I needed to reorder them in a smaller size, lol. They should be here on Monday.😁

    Awesome exercise! You will get that routine figured out. I am sure it must be a big adjustment. That’s the one thing that scares me about an Apple Watch is learning how to use it.

    Major NSV! I tried on some jeans of my daughter's and they fit! Size 12 misses and some size 11 juniors!!! I am so stoked! It really surprised me when they slid on! Now I can steal her clothes! It is so strange to me to think about being the same size as my girl.

    Fantastic NSV!

    I apologize for being quiet today ... I have laid on the couch with my leg up most of the day ... it is extremely black n blue and swollen ughhhh

    Ice and rest. Feel better soon.

    Good for you putting it behind you. Did you have a celebration for half of me gone?

    I am beat this morning as yesterday was busy. I had a decent swim and a mini workout. I am sitting here trying to decide if I should go to the pool and do some walking/stretching. Problem is if I go I always end up swimming or doing a workout. Wish I could figure out how to swim leisurely. I will busy all day getting ready for my family coming for thanksgiving all day. Turkey is going in the oven in a few hours. I am not logging food today but going to eat in moderation.

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

    @lindamtuck2018 for my half size me day I had half a mini cupcake. Looking back now I realize most of my rewards have been food based. I need to figure out some non food rewards. Having food rewards all the time can be dangerous. At least I am keeping the portion sizes down. The cake last night was a 2 layer 5 inch cake. I had 1/8 which was 55g.

    @luccianaff wonderful picture. Seeing it in person must have been amazing.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all of our northern neighbors. May you all have something good to be thankful for.
