6. Get the holiday things put away! yet.Done!
7. Balance the checkbook! yet.maybe tonight...yes!Done.

Went over a little while watching football, but also exercised more than I'd planned on.
Today, I'm already over because of the 2 beers and the fried snacks - but the Bears were playing and the food/beverages were part of the whole experience. I did start off the eating with a huge plate of lettuce with chicken/salsa mixture I made earlier in the week from Cassie's recipe. I added a few tortilla chips and some sharp cheddar, and it was awesome. Next week - Packers! Sorry, Quinn, but the Packers are gonna lose. I was asked to bring (home-made, fabulous) cookies to watch that game, so it'll be a challenge to plan my eating strategy. I'll use Sunday for my incentive to eat well the rest of the week. I find Friday weigh-in really motivating too.
Canary - sorry to hear about that monster of a disease which is making life miserable for you. Hope the accupuncture helped!
Ruby - thanks for the encouragement! This is the first time in many years that I think I can actually reach my goal - all thanks to Fitday.

Runbikeski, thank you so much for your kind words. The acupuncture helps for some of the symptoms: my back, arm, leg, shoulder and knee pain. Plus my acupuncturist does other healing modalities so she is reallly invaluable to my health and well being. And I agree, we ought to have a better handle on this! And when they find one, I'm grabbing onto it, believe me! This has been a tough week on me and my family, not easy to see one you love suffer so I feel for them! But as you say, there is always next week, right?

For everyone, I hope your team wins. For me, I'm watching the Golden Globes!

Ups and downs to end the week. I didn't do too well on the calories or the pie chart ...but I know what I did wrong: didn't plan well for son's tournament, so ended up letting myself get too hungry and gave in for pizza for dinner, committed to a "meatless" day but didn't compensate the protein, and ate for emotional reasons (got cranky w/hubby about things that need to be done around the house). Oh, and I didn't exercise, either .

But I did paint some trim, squeaking that goal in last-minute. I thought it would be easier to do the upstairs hallway since I didn't have to move furniture; once I started, I realized that there are six doors and door frames up there...what a pain!

Going to keep my goals the same for this coming week.
