Is it just winter weight gain?
I lost 50 pounds two years ago, and now the scale is creeping up a bit. Time to be honest with myself: is it the holidays (Thanksgiving pecan pie, Christmas cookies, New Year's, Super Bowl, Valentine's candy?) or is it that I've lost the sharp focus that got me this far.
My goal is to lose 15 pounds, bring down my BMI (25.5%) and settle into my ideal weight for the rest of my life.
It's not the holidays, it's intention.
Back to basics now: tracking nutrition, avoiding sugar and "white food," and sticking to a sensible exercise and movement regime.
My goal is to lose six pounds by the time I attend a weekend Nia dance workshop March 26-27: able to dancer lighter and brighter and nearly halfway to the prize!
Nia and yoga are my go-to activities for stress relief and pure pleasure. Check out the Nia HQ site. nianow.come
