November 4th

November's going pretty well so far. This past week was okay eating-wise (Halloween was bad, and wine was involved) but pretty awful with exercise. I only got about 161 minutes in. Part of this is that I feel like I am getting sick. Friday I woke up with a stuffy nose and sore throat. Luckily, it went away later in the day but I've been sleeping a LOT and taking Dayquil and ginger. I can still feel it coming on, but it's Sunday and I feel pretty okay so maybe I am warding it off. I did work out yesterday and today, for over an hour each day, so I feel pretty good about that. Today I took a short hike in the woods, but I wasn't really satisfied with that. I raked for like 10 minutes but then got a phone call and ended up talking to him for like a half hour, and then gave up on the raking. So when I got home, I did my short but quite intense cardio kickboxing.

I'm happy to say I've hit my lowest weight again and I'm down 39.2 pounds. I keep waiting and waiting to see the 40 lbs lost mark and I know that if I just stop having those one or two bad days each week that I could hit it.

November has some vague goals in mind -- I know I said I was trying to be better with feeling motivated, so I did start a binder to help with tracking. I kind of always have the same goals - staying w/in my calorie range 6/7 days, reaching 1,000 fitness minutes for the month, and no alcohol. I always seem to do better at the beginning of each month, so I'm hoping to hit that 40 lb mark soon.

Here's my menu plan/exercise plan for the week.

Frittata with spinach, potatoes, and leeks (I actually made this for breakfast and had leftovers for dinner -- it's delicious, though)

Frontside, 43 minutes
