Take 351

7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
I'm not one for sharing lots on this front, but believe yous me, I love looking at other people's before and after photos... And I'm not one for before and after photos much of *me*, but because you all know I've been calorie counting (with the app "Lose It!"), I'm happy to share that after 2.5 months, I met my weight goal.

Meeting this goal has been timely, as I just jumped back into listening, "Better Than Before", where the author is describing habit forming and points out a few things that have hit home for me: meeting a goal means... you've met it. So, are you done? Are you going back? Or, are you totally changed? LOL. How anticlimactic. Now I'm grappling with what the long-term plan is. And I'm confident I'll find a good one.

(Thanks for the book recommendation, friends. I'm enjoying it!)

Another thing that the author mentions about habits is that we often choose rewards that undermine the very habit we're trying to build... #COOKIES, amiright? 

So, in an effort to keep embracing lower calorie weekdays for higher calorie weekends, I chose a bouquet of flowers and a new pair of yoga pants.

Also, rice crispy treats. I'm not perfect! LOL.

Dear Apple, Thanks?
FYI: This is totally NOT TRUE. I did 43 workouts in August and closed all three rings 27 out of 31 days. For me, that's total success! LOL.

We have a new fitness center at the mall here. Hilariously, they outfitted the front entryway (completely visible from the mall), with brand new swanky looking leather sofas. #Fitness Also, I'm sorely tempted to go lounge in them. LOL.

We went to a party this weekend and brought 7-layer dip. We had such a fun moment in the kitchen trying to remember all 7 layers. Can you do it? No cheating! LOL. Enjoy :) Now, go google it.

You know the super huge flying bug with long legs that we always called a mosquito... but clearly wasn't? (If you don't, google at your own risk. I have a strict policy to avoid bug google searches.) BUT, it's called a crane fly. And no, it doesn't bite.

It's not in all places, but I thought I'd share something I like about our walk to the mall here... the sidewalk splits and there's a woodsy-covered sidewalk for walkers, and the bicycles stay on the road side of the sidewalk... and that's just nice. #Germany

Happy Friday!
