The holiday crunch is getting to me, perhaps a bit more than I'd expected, but I'm still doing some things right. Here's the hap's:

emoticon I have not been truly consistent about my tracking - the weekends really throw me off, and I need to figure out how to not let that happen - however, overall, I tracked probably 5 out of 7 days. Not the worst, but not the best. The bad thing about it is that on the days I didn't track, I feel confident I went out of range. Like yesterday, when I did not let any real food pass my lips. I just nibbled on cookie scraps all day...UGH!!!

emoticon As I said, on the days I didn't track, I didn't do so hot on my food intake either, and yesterday I think I ate one vegetable. WTH?!?! To be fair, though, the other 6 days this week, I did great, and got at least 4 or 5 svgs of fruits and veggies, which is why I am also giving myself the woo-hoo emoticon too.
emoticon

emoticon My writing has seriously suffered this month, and it's not going to get any better before the year ends next week. Beginning tomorrow, I have 2 part-time jobs. I wanted this, and I'm super excited about the new job, but how will I fit writing in while working 40-55 hrs a week, when I couldn't figure out how to do it while I was only working 30-35 hrs a week?!?! Dang it!!!

emoticon emoticon I did not exercise 20-30 mins a day, but I did exercise almost every day (except 1) for at least 10 mins. Not perfect. Not horrendous.

emoticon water intake - yay! ST before bed (5 out of 7, and I'm calling this great)

So, we're nearing the end of this dark time...
This week is Solstice and then the days start getting longer again. Though, here in the PNW, the dark gray usually persists until at least March. I'm not as far along as I wanted to be right now. I'm still hovering just above ONEderland, which is where I've been for the past year. Sure, I have more muscle, but I really want to drop the fat. I'm tired of not making progress. I need to create some major change in 2012, and I want to go into it with some serious momentum forward. 12 DAYS UNTIL THE NEW YEAR!

~*~ Nicole ~*~

Wishing you some sort of success every day, and the ability to always see your blessings.

I can't believe I've already been in San Francisco FIVE DAYS! Let's see how I can summarize weekly progress: emoticon or emoticon

~~ track, food and exercise emoticon Just haven't been able to. Haven't even had computer access all the time.

~~ exercise (a minimum of) 10 minutes every day emoticon I've been walking at least a couple miles a day; five miles today.

~~ no sit-ups and no strength training since arriving emoticon

~~ Keep SAD at bay. emoticon The weather has been awesome here. Sunny and criisp.

~~ no scales, no Sunday weigh-in. It will be a mystery until Jan 8!

Blessed be!
Maha

~ track food and exercise

I am only tracking the walking. Tracking the food was making me crazy. Maybe later...

~10 min/day rotating ST and 10 min/day walking

I've managed to walk almost every day, which is huge progress for me. The back pain is mostly tolerable, though it does sometimes bring crankiness.

~ weekly Feldenkrais class plus its morning loosening routine

This continues to be great.

~"chase the sun" by chasing Beauty: see, touch, create, read or photograph

This has been so helpful staying on the positive side. Amazing. Will it become habit?

Gonna operate under the assumption that this is, more or less, 12/11 - 12/18.

Up by the same 2+ lbs. This time, I do know why. Demon TOM. *Shrug*.

Life goes on, and I am getting in exercise when I can. I am tracking and watching. This, too, shall pass.

Base your check-in on goals you set for yourself, as well as the ups and downs presented by the week that you wish to share.
