Countdown to Christmas Plan
Recap of Day (Dec 12th) -
1. Exercise every day for the next 25 days. Minimum of 10 mins a day.
DONE -30 minutes
Workout with trainer (last one!)
2. Eat within the low range of my calories AND make smart choices for those calories. I plan to stay within 1200-1300.
NOPE Calories =1441- I'm pretty sure it's ok with my activity today - but still I'm disappointed.
3. Drink a minimum of FOURTEEN 8oz glasses of water a day.
DONE - 14 glasses! Still struggling but I got it done
4. Find 10 minutes for ME every day.
5. Find ONE nice thing to do/say to ONE person every day.
6. Be accountable to my plan and post here each day until Christmas.
DONE- this blog has been posted
MONDAY WEIGH IN - 200!
Things I learned on Day 12:
WATER, WATER, WATER is STILL a love/hate relationship. (disclaimer/note - some have questioned my water goal - this amount was set by my doctor for my activity level)
Calories are a bit higher than I would like- but still below the recommended amount.
BONUS FEATURES (lol)
Today was my last day with Trainer #5. I am going to have to be more accountable to myself now - no trainer until mid January. I have been through this before, and I'm ready. I have a plan! - Continue with ballroom dancing, continue with strength training on my own, and swim when my daughter has swim team. Hit the treadmill 2x a week - and I will do a 5K on the treadmill at least 1x a week (I've already been doing this). If all this fails me on any given day, (i.e LIFE interrupts the plan for the day) I vow to get my butt up and go out for a walk and/or do my sit-ups, push-ups, and jumping jacks in the house. NO EXCUSES - 10 minutes minimum a day. Period.

I vowed when I started the countdown I wouldn't deprive myself - and I haven't- I have indulged in holiday goodies (just not GORGED in holiday goodies) and I have planned for them. The difference being I have planned.
I'm pretty sure I will make it to Onederland before Christmas (barring any craziness). However, even if I do, I plan to finish this challenge and see how low I get by Christmas day.
I'm DONE with SIXTY pounds - I am so dang proud-- Sususuzzzie was right - I was grinning from ear to ear today after I weighed in. I hadn't "sneak weighed" at all - I truly just wanted it to be a surprise... and it was!
13 more days and counting... Onederland here I come!
Thanks for your support!
