Christmas Countdown... BRING IT!!!
Monday, November 26, 2012
We are ONE MONTH away, folks!!! There are going to be a lot of challenges in the next month. I've decided I need to devise a plan right now!
I'm still recovering from Thanksgiving. I'm an introvert so it's going to take me awhile to get back to my normal self. I'm exhausted: physically from the traveling and socializing, and emotionally from the situation with my family.
My weight goals for the next month are to at least maintain my weight, and at best possibly lose a couple pounds.
My challenges are, of course, the socializing and food involved in celebrating the holidays. My first event will be on Dec 9th (a Cookie Exchange Dinner Party). This is two weeks away! I need to be light on that day so that I can indulge without consequence.
For Christmas we are going to Florida to spend time with my husband's family. We will be there at least a week and half... possibly longer. I ALWAYS gain weight when I spend time with his family. I just enjoy eating with them... and we eat A LOT when we're together. There are several factors at play here, and I won't go into them. I just know I have to fuel up to create a mindset that will not allow me to pig out daily while I am visiting with them. It would be a catastrophe to gain 10-15 lbs in 2 weeks. And I know that is precisely what will happen if I don't figure something out right now!
So... my plan right now is for the next two weeks to be strict. This is a time of Thanksgiving recovery and Christmas preparation. I will be at least 142 lbs by the time I go to my in-laws for their dinner party.
I'm going to conquer this holiday season!!!
