Goals - November report

November is done! Let's review the goals:
  1. Lose an average of one pound a week - fail - big super massive fail.  This is so frustrating, but I know it's because my healthy eating is flying out the window these days.  Ugh.  The only good thing to this graph is that the moving average is only up 1.5 pounds for the month.  Unfortunately, that's also 5.2 pounds over the past four months.  No bueno.
  2. Work out at least 20 times a month - met!  24 workouts, but too many days with no workouts unfortunately.  I looked at today and learned that last month I took 338,313 steps and climbed 272 floors.  Neato! ;)  I did take a new class this month too!
  3. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month - met.  Gosh, I think five or six this month?  One of the hits was this roasted pumpkin and sage soup :) with some of the incredible turkey stock I made a day or two earlier.  Yum!
  4. Make an effort to eat clean and healthy the majority of the time - failed.  I felt like I did okay at Thanksgiving, only to completely fall off the wagon at a friend's birthday party (TATER TOTS!).  It's so deeply frustrating at how fast I can gain weigh but how long it takes to lose it.  
OK, so to be brutally honest, I am really frustrated with how the weight loss has been going - since I haven't been losing weight! ;)  Looking at my calendar for December, I know this is not going to be good for the scale.  Too many social events focused around food, and honestly some of them conflict with my workouts - but I need to find balance.  I get lonely at times (being a stay-at-home mom is difficult!), so I will just have to find ways to get in some other exercise!  My goal for December is to not gain weight.  Let's see if that can happen...
