>I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love the beginning of a new month! I had a lofty goal of losing 10 lbs in November and I failed. Miserably.
It’s been awhile since I humiliated myself by posting my weight, so let’s get that going shall we?!
Beginning of November: 375
Day after Thanksgiving (just for comparison): 378
This morning: 373
So…not really progress. I’m actually up several pounds from a few months ago
And I was thinking about it in the shower (where all good thinking occurs) and if I would just be consistent I could be under 300 by late spring, i.e.-bathing suit season! A number I haven’t seen since 2002-ish? It’s time to get moving if I want to make that happen.
Sparkpeople had a great tip to map out December, and look at days when you know it may be hard to stay on track-something that occurs waaaay too often in December.
Dec 4-trip to Austin (8 hrs in the car+ dinner at the Spaghetti Warehouse)
Dec 11- trip to Van Alstyne (lunch out)
Dec 18-Christmas parties!
Dec 19-traveling 19 hrs to Farmington, NM (all meals out + mindless snacking cuz daaaamn that’s a long drive!)
Dec 19-Dec 27-visiting my sister (who is pregnant and most decidedly not dieting 😉 )
Dec 28-Traveling back (see above)
Dec 31-New Years Eve-’nuff said
So, ummm, half the month? LOL It just comes down to good choices. I have to be proactive to these days. They aren’t a surprise-I know they’re coming! I need to plan, plan, plan!
So, what do y’all think? Is a loss possible with this craziness going on this month? Or should I just try to maintain?
Finally did some grocery shopping today-it’s been bad y’all! I didn’t have anything to take today for lunch and *my luck* they had meatloaf and spinach. Is it their goal that NO child eats lunch? Seriously people! And it’s not like the good ol’ days, when I was in school, and they had the “hot line” and the “good line” know what I mean? It’s meatloaf or nuthin’ (thanks Texas Legislature 😉 )
Of course, thanks to my ridiculous dinner, I till managed to consume 1900 calories, even with a skipped lunch. No bueno. I have to balance my eating better so I’ll have more energy.
It is 43 degrees here (it was in the 70’s just a few days ago!) Brrrr, we are freezing! And for some reason my heater isn’t working right now so I’m going to go huddle under a blanket and drink some hot tea!
Happy December y’all!
