October is going well so far. I have exercised everyday, some days not as much as I should, but I am exercising. I need to buy more weights, my dumbbells are getting to light for curls. I am really enjoying the every Wednesday roller skating. It is for my daughter but I think I am having as much fun as she is. I have eaten more sugar than I should, October is a big birthday month in the family, so many cakes! I just realised that today is Thursday and I have yet to eat any meat and tonight is left over veggie meat loaf and tomorrow is left over vegetarian chili. The weight maintenance is going well but confusing. I am visibly more muscular, but every time I think I have burned off all the fat I am going to and my weight will start going up I drop back down a couple pounds. I haven't been this light since high school and my wife is starting to ride me about being to thin. OK, enough rambling. I have to get to work.

Getting my water is still a struggle.....I must walk away from the coffee pot:) This needs to become a main focus for the remainer of the month. After I finish this cup of java:)

2) Exercise every day!
3) Eat as little refined sugar as possible.
4) Stay at the low end of my calorie range.

I'll be travelling the entire month of October, so I've had to get creative and move away from my usual goal-setting pattern of trying for a certain number of calories burned, fitness minutes, or trips to the gym, and recognizing that I might not be able to track my nutrition as accurately as I do when I'm at home (who knows how much fibre a muffin has if you didn't bake it yourself?). With that in mind, I'm aiming to:
*get my 5 servings of fruit and veg even on days I'm stuck on the train or in the airport
*limit myself to one 'indulgeant' meal each day (i.e. buy croissants one at a time)
*Do something ambitious and physical every second day. This can be anything from a day of hiking on the coast, to a full day of exploring museums and winding backstreets on foot.

It feels weird not to be attaching more specific metrics, but I guess letting go of the numbers is my first step in getting into that "vacation feel."

My goal for this month is the same as every month: to do the best I can everyday.

**LINDA**

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?
