Preparing for the holidays
Saturday, October 19, 2013
The non-stop feasting is coming. I love baking and cooking for these holidays, I love hosting meals for people. I love drinking and laughing and tasting. But I have other goals in mind, too.
I joined a fitness group that will meet regularly on Google Plus to weigh-in and swap information with a personal trainer. It cost me $60 and I was very reluctant to throw that money in. But the support and the personalized nutrition/fitness look promising.
We officially start on November 1, the week before is just for information-collecting and setting up our personal plans. Until then, I'm going to regularize myself at the gym with lifting basics (squats, deadlifts, benches). I'm going to keep tracking my food. I'm going to aim for my numbers. This will be my baseline for a recharge. I've lost weight during the holidays before, I know I can do it again.
