  22. Made healthier Christmas candy with dark chocolate, toasted quinoa, Goji berries, pepitas and walnuts. Took to Elliott party, gave to gym folks.

  25. Someone gave me a women’s t-shirt in what I thought was two sizes too small, but it fit perfectly — not even snug.
  26. I actually FELT like I weighed less during my walk this afternoon. Also walked to and from the gym.
  27. Aside from first going to Doctors Wellness Center, made one of the best decisions in four years for my health and well-being. A personal, difficult decision that I’ll keep to myself,  but a biggie, nonetheless.
  28. Took a rest day due to rainy weather and closed gym, but took a short walk once the rain stopped. Not the longest or more strenuous walk, but a good walk.
  29. Mom noticed and commented on my leg muscles.
  30. Comfortably wore one of my “skinny rings” today.
  31. Did morning cardio so I could go out this evening.
