My goal is at least 30 minutes daily exercise except Tuesday and Wednesday (I'm in school from 8am till 9pm), and Tuesday and Wednesday's goal is to actually eat 1200 calories (as opposed to realizing at the end of the day I've only eaten 400 because I was too busy). Not part of the challenge, but my weight goal is 189 (I'm 210 now).

No school during Thanksgiving Break
November 23: Exercised but forgot to post (1)

November 29: Exercised and posted (2) 205.8 Is confused how a cheeseburger and fries (snack size) was anywhere near a 3 pound loss... first cheat in 4 months caused carb shock maybe?
