A Good Week

Saturday, December 07, 2013

This week has been very good in terms of food and exercise. I can feel myself "righting the ship." I'm so glad I decided to get started on 12/1 instead of waiting for the New Year. Sure, there will be obstacles -- my work's holiday party, my birthday -- but it is so much better to try and meet the challenge. I've lost 5.4 lbs since Thanksgiving. A lot of that was water weight but isn't it so much better to be losing weight during the holiday season rather than gaining it?! Even if I don't meet all of my goals this month, I'll be better for having HAD goals and TRYING to meet them than I would be if I wasn't working towards any goal at all.

    YES! Good for you! It makes perfect sense to start now and not later. Every calorie you miss now is one less to have to work on in January! You are doing GREAT!!

    Why wait!?!? So while the rest will be trying to build up their motivation for 2014 you'll already be in a groove!

    Having goals and TRYING to meet them is much better than giving up and doing nothing!

    I completely agree with this: I'll be better for having HAD goals and TRYING to meet them than I would be if I wasn't working towards any goal at all.

    You've got this!

    Good for you! I can tell that you are feeling reasonably settled in your new home and your new job so that your stress is less. Seeing you here in "Blog Land" has put a smile on my face because this is the Olivia I have grown accustomed to seeing emoticon

    You blew my mind when you decided to start the new year right by cleaning up your exercise and eating in December . That was such a foreign concept to me that I started as well. I wanted to see how far I would get before I gave up. Your blogs are so inspiring, I am still hanging in there, and I copied your "free day" concept of planned celebrating, with a next day back on track.

    I am still amazed that you get up at SIX AM to work out! That is love. I am wanting that kind of loving action. I am in awe of your ideas, and that you are putting your energy where your thoughts are keep me following your lead. Thanks for mentoring.

    I made the determination not to gain during this CHRISTmas season & maybe even drop a few unwanted pounds.


    God bless!

    Very true! Besides, even with the obstacles you may still find yourself having lost at least a little bit by the first of the year, and that will help boost the confidence.
