::: OCTOBER REFLECTIONS :::
things i did well in october: counting calories and journaling. meal planning. hydrating. started taking a probiotic.
things i still need to work on: eating out too much. portion control. inconsistent workouts. not eating enough veggies. getting on the scale too often. beating myself up for small mistakes. using the holidays as an excuse to go crazy with food. eating too quickly.
i have some work to do. i have gained about an inch around my middle since the first of august. i want to lose half an inch by the end of the month. i know that will be difficult with the holidays in there, but i need to stay focused.
