Week 2 lbs lost (Oct 15 - Oct 21): 2.6 lbs
Total lbs lost (Oct 8 - Dec 30): 4.2 lbs

Monday was a total flop this week -- I was tired, I did not sleep well, and I overate because of it. I didn't exercise. That's ok -- it happens. I am starting fresh on Tuesday after a good night's rest.

We've decided to go to the gym at 5-6 pm each day, Sun-Fri, because I believe it will help me sleep better at night if I do my workout 4-5 hours before bedtime. Also, it will keep me from overeating at dinner since I need to be able to run soon after... and it should suppress my urge to snack in the evening as well. I might even split my supper into pre-and-post workout portions (5 pm and 8 pm), to keep my metabolism running high and repairing my muscles while I sleep.

Weekly Reflection:
-------------------
A few days this week, I've been working out a bit in the morning and a bit at evening. I like it. Eventually I would like to make it a habit to take a morning walk and then do my regular gym stuff in the evenings.

Unfortunately, I could not check off my last calorie day because Sunday I had a binge. Boo. I will do better.

    Oh, I used to hate cleaning out my fish tank. Such a smelly, dirty job. I wish you luck!
