It has been a somewhat uneventful Fit at Fifty Week Twenty One – not too much to report on.  I stayed the same weight which was a pleasant surprise.  I had anticipated gaining as we had friends in from out of town, I had a girls night out, as well as a couple dinner parties at our house;  which translates into over indulging and not being consistent with eating right. I kind of ate like a jerk – you will see.  Damn it, I stuck to my guns, watched my portion control and enjoyed a couple glasses of wine and did not feel guilty.  The only thing that I could have been better at was being consistent with yoga.  I found that doing yoga at home can make it tricky when entertaining and I need to work on getting over it, and make the time for me.  That being said I am behind by a few days on yoga but back at the 31 day challenge – and I am still enjoying it.
