My HoliDAYs/My weight loss goals

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

The flu is making it's rounds at our house. Exandria had gotten it this past weekend and had a high fever so we decided to take her in. She hadn't thrown up or anything but I worried about her because she was pretty lethargic. The doctor put her and the rest of us on Tamiflu. Let me just say.. THANK GOD for insurance because we could never afford it otherwise.

Today I spent cleaning up and trying to put the house together some. I hate moving.. All of our stuff ends up in boxes forever.. and then when I finally feel like things are put together, it's time to move again. I am definitely ready to settle in my life.

As for my weight loss journey.. I had a couple holiDAYs. I did indulge over Christmas. I don't feel like I overindulged.. and I actually went down a pound afterwards. On New Years Eve I had 2 drinks. I didn't feel the need to be drunk or take in too many extra calories.. and I will say, I felt amazing the next day. Last night I did struggle with portion control. I made a spiral ham and my sister-in-law made mashed potatoes. My weakness is mashed potatoes.. and I definitely overdid it last night. I've been having a little trouble lately staying on track.. snacking on little things, not measuring or keeping track of foods, and nutrition in general. I am making it a priority to get my nutrition and health back in line.

I've kind of been stuck around the same 191-192 because I've let it slide. I'm hoping to hit goal by the middle of next year. My goal is 130.. which means about 62 pounds to lose in a year and a half. I've lost 71 pounds in 8 months so I'm pretty sure it is attainable.
