This weekend was pretty rough. I let my emotions get to me and went over my calories for both Saturday and Sunday. Nothing terrible, but just lacked self control. I did a lot of walking including a much needed visit to Halloween City (finding home decor, naturally), and was mindful about getting all of my steps in even when I lost my fit bit.
Although losing my fit bit caused me to lose my step bet already, I've found it again and am sticking to reaching my step goals 6/7 days a week to help keep my friend motivated too.
My husband and I are planning on making the trip out to Delaware for (US) Thanksgiving to visit his family, and I'd like to lose more weight before we go. The last time they visited, I struggled to get around. I was barely able to walk, and I could tell they were concerned. I just don't want them to worry.
Having these upcoming family events have helped me stay on track even when I have off days. After Thanksgiving, my next big trip won't be until April, but that one is going to be extra special (I'll talk about it when it's closer). Nothing motivates me more than the people I love, and for that I'm eternally grateful.
