You might remember when I made a vow to myself. A very important vow…to get healthier and lose weight.
You might even wonder how I’m doing, well, it’s fairly going well, but could be better. I’ve lost about 5 lbs. in total so far. This is my fifth week on Weight Watchers, and I’ve averaged about 1 lb./week. It’s good, but at my weight, I feel like I could pull bigger numbers.
For this week, I’m re-introducing exercise. I will be doing Couch to 5K 3 days/week for now until my body is ready for more (aka The Shred for the other two days in a work week).
So, to reinvigorate the lifestyle change, I’ve joined this holiday challenge! I’m still doing the Healthy Train challenge, but since that’s a longer term goal where I could probably convince myself to not care as much during the holidays and try extra hard afterwards, I feel that this extra challenge will help me!
On the scale this morning, I was 258.4…is it possible to lose 18.5 lbs in 3 weeks to reach my Thanksgiving goal? Chances are slim to none, but I’m aiming for 10 lbs. and hoping for more!
For this challenge, I need to make two of these bullets my goals daily. I chose the bolded.
On December 1st, I will have to change one of the two goals to a new goal to meet. I’ll surprise you with that one later.
I feel that this will really help me beat the holiday weight gain. I love a good challenge, especially one for prizes!!
How are you avoiding the impending weight gain of the holiday season?
