Week #107: In Review

"Life without a purpose is a languid, drifting thing; every day we ought to review our purpose, saying to ourselves, 'This day let me make a sound beginning, for what we have hitherto done is naught!" ~ Thomas a Kempis

I had a fantastic week, even while away on vacation.......*pats himself on the back*.

We didn't eat out too much while we were on vacation, and when we did go out we ate reasonably well. Yesterday Sherri and I ate at Moxies and I even left 1/3 of my French fries on my plate.....which is a first. When we ate at Susan's our food choices were as good or better than we would of done at home. We walked a ton while we were in Ottawa, so exercise wasn't a problem.

All in all I would say that I passed my first real test with flying colours.

Focus for this week: remembering to eat snacks between meals and to start reading my book on meditation.

I hope everyone else had a great week!
