I just wanted to drop in and say CONGRATS on your first medal and great work on your lifts. You are an inspiriation, seriously.

I understand where you're coming from with the eating stuff too. The candy also got the best of me on Halloween, a few days afterwards too. This is just something that I always struggle with.

Thank you all!!! It was a very fun meet! Almost everyone on the team brought home a medal... Maybe everyone? I didn't see the last session...

I am on an amazing team with an outstanding coach. We all had a blast!

I'm exhausted today because after lifting I had to jump in my car and drive 2.5 hours home, and I didn't get home until almost 11. I ended up staying home from work to relax and recover.

Week Six Recap

Lifting:

Me thinks my second place medal earns me an A+ for week 6! :-D

Eating:

I did my three days this week, but omg ALL THE SUGAR! So, I think the sugar drops my grade a little bit.

I'm going with a B here.

Life:

Got a little more done in the garage. We still can't pull a car in because of the boxes that need to be recycled, but once those are gone, Carol will finally be able to park in the garage.

Since I didn't recycle the boxes, I'll give myself a B here.

Overall grade for the week: A-
