Honesty


Saturday, January 01, 2011

Okay, I did overdo it over the holidays. In some ways I am surprised the total gain isn't worse. I guess I have learned some good habits. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's, I have gained 7 lbs. My goal is to have it gone by Valentine's Day which is about 6 weeks. I know that will be a challenge because these are like those last pounds before goal. I am going to use the 28 day bootcamp from Spark to keep me focused. I also plan to get back on my bike, either inside on the trainer or outside depending on the weather. The biggest change I plan to make is to do my exercise as early in the day as possible. I have been putting it off and then deciding it was too close to bedtime to exercise. I plan to weigh every day.... yes, I know weight varies from day to day without regard to real weight loss, but I think the scale will keep me honest.

    Way to go! You can't change what you don't acknowledge. Half your battle is now finished!

    emoticon I'll be right along with you. Although I didn't suffer any holiday weight gain, I still have 15 to go to reach goal. I'll be exercising as I can fit it in with whatever is available during my hospital stay in Chicago. In Florida, I plan to walk, bike, do Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown, and the crunchless abs DVD I fell for from a TV ad. (I'm hoping the hospital has a DVD player in the room...I'm packing my yoga mat.) Put it all together and I hope it still spells weightloss, which is an extreme challenge around my mother who has poor dietary and nonexistent exercise habits. At the very least, I hope to maintain.

I like to weigh everyday as well. As you say, it keeps you honest.

Good luck to us both.
