  • Notes and findings: 
    • So here we go again!  The week started out great with a 0.6 pound weight loss after one day, so I’m hoping to ride that momentum to finish the week with that same loss.  Will be hard after the holiday since we’re doing a “Thanksgiving dinner redux” on Sunday since my family’s meal was far from memorable (rare prime rib – yuck!)
    • I had to take a PASS day on Friday due to travel and a night of no sleep.  I have decided that I can earn PASS days back by doing two FULL workouts in one day within the same week that the PASS day was taken – but only one day can be re-earned a week.  My program, my rules!
    • On Monday night, it’s looking like I may just break even for the week.  That would be fine given that we had Thanksgiving this week and that involved three nights of fattening eating!
    • I tried out “quiet time” for Matthew on Tuesday instead of a nap since he slept so late that morning – and he did so great that I got to run on the treadmill for 40 minutes while Bryson napped and Matthew stayed in bed resting.  Huzzah!
    • Body fat gain makes sense given food content this past week. I’m not concerned (yet)!
    • I am shocked that I dropped weight this week, and 1.2 pounds at that. I did work really hard keeping Thanksgiving weight at bay. That paid off!

Next Week

Author: Courtney

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!
