What I did this week: October 28 to November 3

The weather has been really changeable around here -- we seem to be alternating between glorious, sunny fall days and windy, awful, rainy ones.

I averaged more than 10,000 steps this week, but I had a few really good days that balanced out some more sedentary ones. My more productive work days are my worst step days -- sometimes I wish I had a more active job.

Monday: 8,552 steps, Spin class
Tuesday: 10,736 steps, ran 20 minutes
Wednesday: 10,381 steps, went for a walk
Thursday: 8,429 steps, 10 minutes on the rower
Friday: 17,639 steps, ran 24 minutes
Saturday: 6,055 steps, Pilates Circuit class
Sunday: 8,507 steps, Masters Swim practice

I tweeted today about my new weight goals:

Here are the milestones, benchmark dates and revised rewards:

174, December 11, Sephora makeover (I would have to buy some product)
168, January 22, New jeans
162, March 5, Leather jacket
157, April 16, New bras
151, May 28, Session with a personal shopper

My weight goal is 155, but I am thinking of the advice to get below the goal to have a maintenance range.  I would try to keep the scale between 150-155.

The dates are targets, but I will do the rewards earlier or later, whenever I hit the benchmark weight on an official (Wednesday) weigh-in. I had never done rewards before, so I'm thinking that they might help keep me more on track.  I have a weird reluctance to do rewards so they might be just the thing. I also tried to be strategic and choose things I might need anyway. If I drop 12 pounds, I should be getting into a different jeans size, for example.

Hope you all have a good week. Thanks for reading!
