I know November isn't over yet, but I am SO ready for it to be over.
I still have 2 weeks left of my vacation but I am finally home and back to business with no interruptions. I had a fabulous Thanksgiving, I didn't over do it, but the week in Vegas I over did it calorie wise for sure! The amounts of food were pretty bad, but a big improvement from what my old "normal" was. I am still up about 3 pounds from the trip, but the way it is coming back off and my body is adjusting to the my "new normal", I am thinking I'll be back or close to 214 by weigh in for BLC on Wednesday.
Speaking of 214, I have been 214 the entire month of November.
So as you can see, I have totally mixed emotions about this! On one hand, I sure would have preferred to be LOSING, especially being part of a Biggest Loser Challenge here on Spark. On the flip side, I knew that November was going to be a huge struggle for me, so at the very least I am glad I am not gaining and gaining. So that is where the mixed emotions come in.
I set a goal for BLC 20 to lose 18 pounds over the course of 12 weeks. If I get back to my 214 spot, I will be down 13 pounds this challenge (down from 227) with one week left to go. So while I am not going to make my goal for the challenge, I am trying to be proud of the weight I have lost, but it always gets disappointing when you don't meet a goal.
I definitely want to participate in the BLC 21, because without the support of this challenge, I have a feeling that my month of November would have been a total disaster! But I am going to make it my personal mission to make the BLC 21 a much better round (if I am lucky enough to get to participate again).
This blog is very BLC oriented, we are supposed to blog about our goals to avoid holiday gain. I have made it through the hardest part. I go into work on Christmas at 9pm which is outstanding because all the potluck/pig out food will be gone and put away so I won't even have to deal with it. So for me, the world is back to normal. I have made it through the tough part and now I am just back to exactly what I know: Tracking everything, and exercising. My exercising has been lacking big time so I am ready to step that up.
I also ordered the Fitbit One and I am super excited. It should be here on Thursday and I am so anxious waiting for it. I mainly plan to use it to track my walking on work days, because my days off are usually work out videos which I would still use my Heart Rate Monitor to track, but I know this Fitbit is going to push me to go farther in my walking at work. For those that have one, which one do you have, and how do you like it? I'd love to hear any input!
Anyways, this blog was pretty much a snoozefest,
, I wasn't in "blog-y mode" but wanted my points for the BLC. *Giggles*
I love "Friends" and I'm sure we can all relate to that quote at some time in our lives ha ha!
