Goals - August report

August is done! Let's review the goals:
  1. Lose an average of one pound a week - big fail!  Happy Scale says my moving average is up 1.7 pounds for the month, which is being generous.  The red at the back of that graph shows how much higher I am this month from where I was a month ago.  We were on vacation for part of the month, and you can see how that reflected in my weight!
  2. Work out at least 20 times a month - met with a caveat.  I did 16 traditional workouts, and gave myself credit for 6 days of my vacation where my fitbit said I had more than 60 active minutes.  
  3. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month - met.  Right now I'm drawing a blank on which recipe, but I know I did a few new things at the start of the month.
  4. Make an effort to eat clean and healthy the majority of the time - fail.  We were traveling for 12 days, and that threw everything off.  I did not eat healthy most of that time for sure (but I did walk a lot more...).
August was a challenge, but at least I'm only 1.7 pounds up for the month?  I have two big challenges ahead this coming month, including another trip (but it's only about 48 hours), so hopefully I can get my eating and my exercise in line again and see some big patches of green on the graph next month ;)  I still weigh 42 pounds less than I did a year ago, and that's a great accomplishment.
