Can I survive the Holidays???

Friday, December 04, 2009

Ever since thanksgiving I can't seem to get back on track! and it is soooo frustrating...I feel like everyday there is SOMETHING...a dinner or lunch or some sort of party....I feel like crap because my diet hasn't been balanced and my workout schedule is all kinds of messed up and can't figure out how to find balance. I struggle with saying no to things because it makes it awkward and I have to explain myself and usually my answer doesn't go over well....But the way I feel right now reminds of me of 30lbs ago when I ate whatever I wanted and didn't work out...I know that I am FAR from there but just the reminder is enough to whip me back into shape...The holidays are going to be BRUTAL! But i have to put my game face on, make goals and stick to them.

Two weeks from tomorrow I am heading back to America!!! I have two goals I would like to reach by then.

1. Finish 30 Day Shred
2. Be up to running 3 miles
*Bonus Goal - NO CHRISTMAS COOKIES or sweets (aside from a piece of dark chocolate a day) until Christmas Day. I think that is totally doable...I just have remember the end goal of being healthy and fit and wearing whatever I want ;) so I am going to chew gum like crazy, plan meals as best as I can and track my food on SP......

    Good for you for setting reasonable goals and planning ahead. This time of year is so hard, but you can do it.

    Way to go on listing out your goals...this will make it easier to hold yourself accountable! I agree, the holidays are hard, and there's always dinner/lunch out or some reason to eat bad. Just do the best you can and kick it into high gear 1/1 if needed!

    This time of year is so dramatically difficult! I signed up for Spark right before Thanksgiving and I was thinking about how busy and intense this time of year is. It is almost like I should have waited to sign up until the New Year! In the next 27 days I will be away from home (heck - away from my state) 16 days!!!!! I have to set mini goals too. I like your goals. And I just bought 30 day shred! I am planning on starting it when I return from my 2nd trip.

    Stay Strong! Remember why you are doing this to begin with... to be healthy!

    Make sure you take along some healthy snacks with you everywhere you go. For instance carrot sticks are wonderful and can get slightly warm without going bad. Then when a cookie stares you down, eat a carrot stick.
