  • Notes and findings: 
    • So here we go again!  The week started out great with a 0.6 pound weight loss after one day, so I’m hoping to ride that momentum to finish the week with that same loss.  Will be hard after the holiday since we’re doing a “Thanksgiving dinner redux” on Sunday since my family’s meal was far from memorable (rare prime rib – yuck!)
    • I had to take a PASS day on Friday due to travel and a night of no sleep.  I have decided that I can earn PASS days back by doing two FULL workouts in one day within the same week that the PASS day was taken – but only one day can be re-earned a week.  My program, my rules!
    • On Monday night, it’s looking like I may just break even for the week.  That would be fine given that we had Thanksgiving this week and that involved three nights of fattening eating!
    • I tried out “quiet time” for my son on Tuesday instead of a nap since he slept so late that morning – and he did so great that I got to run on the treadmill for 40 minutes while my little guy napped and my big kid stayed in bed resting.  Huzzah!
    • Body fat gain makes sense given food content this past week. I’m not concerned (yet)!
    • I am shocked that I dropped weight this week, and 1.2 pounds at that. I did work really hard keeping Thanksgiving weight at bay. That paid off!
