“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow’.” ~Mary Anne Radmacher
I had a good weekend. Ate within calories, drank my water, and did the exercise. Friday night I hopped on the bike and got in an extra good workout. The rest was just walking. My weight was down again last week, though not as much as I could have. My TOM arrived late on Saturday, which explains the weight increase on Friday and Saturday mornings despite my good eating and exercise. I have faith this week will be really good. I want to end the month strong.
SparkCoach Update: The question was posed - what area of your life needs moderation? Well, evening eating and overall eating of sweets was my biggest problem. I say was because so far this January I pretty much have those under control. Now I need a few tweaks and I'll be good to go (not I am NOT trying to be the Biggest Loser; just keep losing a pound or two a week).

We volunteered to take in goodies for coffee hour at church on Sunday. We made cookies and fruit salad. I was able to enjoy making cookies with my son and neither of us ate too much.
