  1. Those are great goals and it's nice to see that you saw success! Glad you like the support :) xx

  2. Sounds like a pretty good week overall. Good luck with your upcoming week goals!!

  3. Responding to your comment: I'm so excited to hear that! I hope you like it. If you don't make a blog post about it will you send me a comment or a message (if that's even possible, im still new to this) to let me know what you thought?

  4. Great goals for the week...good luck!

  5. I've been trying to cook one new recipe every week too - so far, so good. I made this really good Tuna Casserole this week, it was filling and only 4 points for a really good sized portion. If you like tuna, I'll track it down for you.

  6. Thanks for the comment yesterday, the long distances can be boring but sometimes you just hit this zen zone and your mind just goes into it's own little place and the km tick by.

  7. Every lil loss counts. And you know what to change. I know this week was probably much better...
