This Friday is the Autumn Equinox; I am desperately seeking signs of the new Season. There is still plenty of opportunity to improve my tracking; yet this is a new week and I start here again with a clean slate.


Join us in posting whatever you want accountability on for the week. Ideas are:
-Food journals
-Water intake
-Exercise
-Freggie intake/Rainbow
-Calories/points/carbs/fat grams/protein grams
-Challenge goals

We have hot weather here again too, Rg. Come on, Autumn!!

I'm starting the week (9/19 rather than 9/18) with new resolve. I was sick and in a funk all last week and have snapped out of it. Got up early and exercised, ate a healthy breakfast, prepared meals for the week, and hopefully will be able to have one successful day, at least!

Hope everyone else is doing well.

I am SO over hot weather, Maric; it is sort of scary when 84 feels like a cold front! We did get light rain over the weekend; not nearly enough to make a dent in drought conditions; but mood lifting.

Sunday

Breakfast: for the first time in FOREVER I did not ride my bike to breakfast because we were having light rain. I did grab a latte at a new coffee shop in the neighborhood. Went to a breakfast place with neighbor and split scrambled eggs, french toast, bacon and sausage.

lunch: zucchini pancake, hatch chili, goat yogurt.

dinner: went to Tapas place and shared small plates of meatballs, fried smelt, roasted beets, artichoke dip, salad, beef empanadas and bottle of wine. Split out bread pudding

Did go to Jazzercise class

dinner: grilled 1/2 fish and salad. Watermelon blended into juice. dark chocolate with hazelnuts.
