I don't know what happened...

Monday, December 01, 2014

I planned and prepared food for the holidays. I ate within my limits and had limited alcohol. I skipped dessert on Thanksgiving, the day after, and the day after that. Yet, when I weighed in...I was UP to 215.4 lbs.

Oh my goodness...I cannot believe my eyes.

So what do I do now, you ask?

Well, nothing really. I used to spiral out of control and do some pretty crazy things to get the weight back off, but I'm not that girl anymore. As a matter of fact, I didn't have an outward reaction at all this time. I looked at the number. I took a deep breath. I reflected on the things I did, didn't do, and should have done. I accepted it as a challenge.

Today is December 1st. I pushed up my delivery on my exercise equipment and my hubby has gotten everything plugged in and ready to go.

I have decided that I will do the following small things all month and see if it makes a big difference:

1) Increase my water intake...this has always been a challenge, but my solution is simply an eight ounce glass on the sink in the bathroom. The plan is to drink 1 glass of water every time I walk into the bathroom. That includes using the toilet, washing hands, showering, checking hair and make-up, putting linens in the closet, picking up dirty clothes. Whatever the reason for going into the bathroom, I will drink 1 glass of water. I started this 2 days ago and have met my 8 glasses both days.

2) Stay away from the scale...Sunday is the only day I can step on the scale. Honestly, after seeing my last weigh in, I have no desire to see that scale more than once a week.

3) 10/31...Because the weight gain was like a scary Halloween Movie, I decided to that date into a goal. I will do 10 minutes of exercise every day for the entire 31 days of December. Now that I have a gym right at home, I have no excuse.

I will not focus on what I can't do based on my back injury. Instead, I will find things I can do and I will do them.

Watch me knock out this 215.4. I cannot wait to see what I pops up on the scale on 12.31 (which is a Wednesday and the only exception to the Sunday weigh in).

It's the week of my cycle and I'm still functioning. Up at 7 and able to work, cook, clean, have family fun, and keep up with the girls' hair.

My jeans fit better too.

I'm really good at starting, but I need to improve on sticking with it.

I am grateful for the blessing of family. I have a beautiful husband, wonderful children, and sweet grandchildren. These last few weeks I have been more aware of my need to have my family close and the joy I feel when most of them are around.
