Steps were above 8,000 (my daily target) on only one day this week, and NEVER above 10,000. This will be a hard goal for me this challenge, as it's a little at odds with my big personal project of finishing my book (which requires hours of my butt in the chair!) Will keep working on it...

I was glad to have the INDUCTION challenge last week, even if I didn't follow induction, it did have me counting again and that is always helpful. On a few days there were times I was thinking I wanted to eat something and I'd take a peek and where my food already was for the day and either make a different choice or decide to just have tea and not eat. When I don't track I rarely turn away once I've already started opening cabinet doors...

No dairy, no problem. It's been 2 months without dairy (except butter) and I'm kinda out of the dairy habit now. I still catch myself just before licking the serving spoon after I scoop out greek yogurt for my kids, though! I do think it's easier for me to be dairy-free than to have a moderate amount. Not even opening the cheese box is easier than stopping myself.
