...and little failures and better than big failures.
This is a very stressful time of year. This week is a two-day work week. That might sound great, but it also means that there is a week's worth of work to do in two days. My parents are in town visiting. That's nice too, but it is still another thing to think about this week. Of course, the biggest thing is the food.
There is food everywhere this time of year. It's almost a cliche that we will struggle with food issues through the holidays. It's not even Thanksgiving yet and D brought meatballs covered in grape jelly to work this morning.
I'm going to set My Fitness Pal at 'break even' and be more than happy if I make it through this week without gaining weight.
The real battle starts on Sunday, when I wake up in an empty house with no guests, nothing to do, and hungry...
I must stay on course no matter what happens in the next 5 days.

Last week I averaged about 2500 calories per day and I walked over 43,000 steps, but I only lost 0.8 pounds.
I have lost 22.6 total (in 49 days).
I am FINALLY wearing new shoes though!
