  1. A quick check-in, we’ve gone back to school here in Australia so it’s been busier than normal the past couple of weeks. I haven’t anything exciting to share but I wish to keep checking in to keep myself accountable. Weight loss is going well, I have 400 grams until I reach my goal for this challenge, to lose 5kg.
