Streaking My Way to Christmas -- please come with!!!

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

I have promised myself the fact that it's December is no excuse to backslide. My plan is to streak my way to Christmas (but not in the naked sense)! Today is officially day 2 (I would have started sooner but .. well, actually, I didn't think of until yesterday)!


For the second day, I have tracked EVERY bite. I got 64+ oz. of water, and I exercised. This is a gift to myself. I am totally rocking my blood sugar: FBS this morning was 87; before lunch 81; before dinner 97! I can't remember having a day where all 3 premeal tests were under 100 since my diagnosis in 2008. That is a huuuuuuuge victory!

I'm streaking too, but I'm streaking on Advent and serving others. Awesome!

    Your plan sounds awesome. You are warrior strong. My plan is to maintain during the holidays. That was my plan last month for Thanksgiving and quitting smoking. I surprised myself and lost 2 pounds anyways.

    You can do this, Bella! Last Christmas, we went on a two week road trip through N'awlins to Lincoln, Nebraska. I ended up losing 3 pounds after the trip! Portion control, exercise, H2O, and cardio! You can do this and still enjoy Christmas!

    I was gonna be excited about 1 pound this month, given parties and weddings, etc. And I already lost it! So, now I have to shoot for a second one... Only right now, being sick, I barely have energy to eat, much less exercise. Today's my third day barely making the bottom of my calorie range...and that's only because I'm making myself eat late to get up there.
