Journaling for Weight loss


Journal prompt #5
Clothes 

How many sizes of clothes do you have in your closet and drawers?  How do your "thin" clothes make you feel? Why do you keep your "fat" clothes?  What would happen if you gave away every single piece of clothing that didn't fit? Are you willing to do it?

Fitbit Progress Report


For the week of November 6-12, 2017.

1. Steps goal: 35,000
Total: 17,909

2. Miles goal: 15
Total: 7.12

3. Minutes goal: 105
Total: 28

4. Exercise goal: 20 minutes on 3 days
Total: 1 day

5. Weight:
Oct. 30 - 173.8
Nov. 6 - 174
Nov. 13 - 174

Thoughts:
I completely lost my motivation this week! Every day I logged my numbers and it just didn't matter that I wasn't getting this done.  Not even my reward stickers could motivate me.... I didn't earn any.
This unmotivated week showed up on the scale though. The scales hung out between 172 and 174. Wasn't it just last month I had a couple days in the 160s?

Goals for November 13-19, 2017:
I'm not officially setting any goals this week. I still have them listed in my journal and I'm still tracking every day. But it's going to be a no pressure week. I'm taking this time to look back over everything I've done this year and figure out why it hasn't worked, and make a plan for next year.

This week


There's not a lot on the schedule so far this week. My normal daily list and housework.  We are in Zone 3: the bathroom, if you are following the Flylady.

I have physical therapy on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  I'm watching The Voice and The Good Doctor.  On Sunday we will watch the NASCAR championship race.

On Tuesday I will order Christmas gifts and then that will be all done!

And last but not least, I have a few things to do to get ready for our camping trip.

I'm sure a few things will pop up as the week goes on, but it looks like a pretty calm week for me.

The Wonders of Wildlife Museum and Aquarium

I had so much fun with the kids last Saturday visiting The Wonders of Wildlife Museum and Aquarium.

My first thought was that it was a little pricy, but after spending the day there, it was definitely worth it. And we plan to go again!

The aquarium and museum is in (connected to) the Bass Pro Shop.






This was really cool! The kids colored a fish and wrote their names on it. Then it was scanned into the system and we could see their fish swimming around.

Checking out the information screen.

Touching the sting rays, horseshoe crabs and star fish. 


We found Nemo (and Dory).







We also toured the Bass Pro NASCAR museum:
