Good progress for yesterday. Everything on nutrition was good except for sodium. I'm successfully keeping it under 3,000mg but I'm still not getting under 2,300 which is where SP wants me. Weirdly I did awesome on sodium November 28, 29, 30! The only other thing I'm not meeting, so far, is my "stretch" goal for protein - I'm trying to push it up into the middle of my range, around 90g, rather than always just barely squeaking in at 60g, the very bottom of my range. So far I've had 78, 75, 78g, so decent amounts, just not up into the 90s.

I'm having no trouble with the water. I'm crushing it! I think usually the weekends drag my average down. I sit around the house and forget to drink water so I've had some weekends were Saturday and Sunday were both 0 or 1 cup of water. Yikes!

Got in a lot more veggies yesterday (salad for dinner!) so my average is going up. I should probably crack the average of 4.4 per day after today is over, I'm doing really well so far today also.

Went to the gym for 35 minutes of cardio. Tomorrow will bring in some weight training, plus a bit more cardio. I was going to do some body weight ST at home last night but I was busy prepping food for the week. Maybe I'll do some tonight.

My weight is up a bit this morning - I weigh often to keep an eye on it, but I don't track it multiple times per week because that would just drive me batty. It's within the normal range of my day to day fluctuations so I'm not worried.

I'm off to a pretty good start I think, now that the crazy weekend is over and I'm back on my routine.
