Week #109: 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

Weight Loss = 2.4 lbs
Fat % Loss = 1.2%

Updated "My Progress Charts" can be found HERE.

Another great week. I was a bit lax on my To-Do List, but we did have company Fri-Sunday. I'm still struggling with hitting my fruit/vegetable guideline. I'm a pretty picky eater, but I'm trying new things and I'm making headway.

Focus for this week: start reading my book on meditation......I know, I know....this is the 3rd week in a row that I've said this.....so I'm putting it on my To-Do List. Also this week, I would like to figure out my ideal heart rate for burning fat during my exercise.

I hope everyone else had a great week!
