Also life during winter in New England? Sickness. My kids had the flu last a couple of weeks ago and thankfully they're over and done with that mess but now I have a bug that just won't quit. It's adding another level of crazy to my insanely busy days these last few weeks.
That leads me to work. Work is fine, but work is a lot of work these days. I feel like I could be putting in 60 hours a week and that still wouldn't be enough.

I stayed within or very close to my 1,200 calories most days, drank a lot of water for the first few days of the week, and got my run on a few days too. Those runs are feeling good by the way, and I'm so looking forward to my first 5K. I'm not even close to being built up enough for where I need to be for the race, but being back on track makes my runs feel so much better. Struggle? Yes, I still struggle, but it's a different struggle... I feel good while I struggle, if that makes any sense.
I also did a few not so good things for the diet this week. One night I drank
