I was scared to weigh myself this morning because I did not feel well yesterday (there was something really wrong with my stomach) so I did not exercise yesterday. I also did not feel like eating yesterday (that's when I know there is something really wrong!) I forced myself to eat a banana for lunch but could not force myself to exercise, so I was afraid to step on the scale this morning. Exercise, more than anything else seems to have the biggest effect on my weight and how I feel.
So I was shocked when I stepped on the scale and realized that I had lost almost 1/2 a pound! The weight seems to be coming off a lot easier than it ever has in the past. I don't know if it's the exercise, Fitbit (which helps me exercise), logging all of my food (though I still need to work on what I eat) or the thyroid medicine. I imagine it's a combination of everything, so I will continue to keep this combination for as long as possible.
There is also the fact that we are finally in a permanent location so we have routines again and less stress.
Today our Christmas fun begins! We have our first Christmas party this evening. Friday, we are going to visit some friends and see The Nutcracker ballet. Saturday and Sunday we have consecutive Christmas parties and next week the kids have their Christmas party!
So much fun!
So what do I need to focus on over the next 3 weeks?
1) Tracking! Log in and track everything! (plus that adds to my Sparkpoints and I'd like to see how high I can get them this month.)
2) Exercise and remember the Fitbit and plug for the laptop to track exercise. (If nothing else, I will walk around the house until I reach 10,000 steps per day.)
3) Have fun!
That's it! Those are my only goals for December.
