The holiday crunch is getting to me, perhaps a bit more than I'd expected, but I'm still doing some things right. Here's the hap's:
I have not been truly consistent about my tracking - the weekends really throw me off, and I need to figure out how to not let that happen - however, overall, I tracked probably 5 out of 7 days. Not the worst, but not the best. The bad thing about it is that on the days I didn't track, I feel confident I went out of range. Like yesterday, when I did not let any real food pass my lips. I just nibbled on cookie scraps all day...UGH!!!
As I said, on the days I didn't track, I didn't do so hot on my food intake either, and yesterday I think I ate one vegetable. WTH?!?! To be fair, though, the other 6 days this week, I did great, and got at least 4 or 5 svgs of fruits and veggies, which is why I am also giving myself the woo-hoo emoticon too.
My writing has seriously suffered this month, and it's not going to get any better before the year ends next week. Beginning tomorrow, I have 2 part-time jobs. I wanted this, and I'm super excited about the new job, but how will I fit writing in while working 40-55 hrs a week, when I couldn't figure out how to do it while I was only working 30-35 hrs a week?!?! Dang it!!!
I did not exercise 20-30 mins a day, but I did exercise almost every day (except 1) for at least 10 mins. Not perfect. Not horrendous.
water intake - yay! ST before bed (5 out of 7, and I'm calling this great)
So, we're nearing the end of this dark time... This week is Solstice and then the days start getting longer again. Though, here in the PNW, the dark gray usually persists until at least March. I'm not as far along as I wanted to be right now. I'm still hovering just above ONEderland, which is where I've been for the past year. Sure, I have more muscle, but I really want to drop the fat. I'm tired of not making progress. I need to create some major change in 2012, and I want to go into it with some serious momentum forward. 12 DAYS UNTIL THE NEW YEAR!
