Week 4, Day 4

Movement ActivityDurationBurnNotes
 Weight Lifting 24 123 
I forgot how much I have always loved weight training. I laid out some weights and did a great session, including triceps press, dumbell flys, triceps dips, resistance band pulls, crunches, hammer curls, wide rows, and overhead press. It felt really good. The triceps dips feel completely different when you have a belly!
Calorie GoalCaloriesNotes
 1200-1300 1353 
I did some stress eating today, related to difficult emotions, as usual. I was not proud to eat the jello or square of chocolate, which I went to when I felt disappointment today.
Daily Self CareNotes
Painting Nails
I played 20 minutes of The Sims 4 today. I also did some work. I ate lunch outside in the treehouse with my daughter. We also painted our nails today. I think that I tried to strike a balance today and did a good job.
Bowel MovementNotes
I have not had a bowel movement on my own for a long time now. I am beginning to feel the heaviness and yuckiness of it. Constipation has always been a problem in my family. I admit that I just cannot seem to drink more than, like, 16 oz of water a day despite always having a goal to drink half my body weight in ounces. It just never happens. I have tried all the tricks.

I do not think that I really tackled any of these goals today. I had a lot to accomplish around the house and with cleaning up the Halloween party mess since today was finally warm enough and the ice has melted.
