November is Done, December Goals
Wednesday, November 30, 2011
Snow is on the ground this morning. Glad to see the end of November. It's been a trying month on many levels. I have pictures in my soap room of spring flowers, boats on the water, the kids swimming in the bay, a print out of a large show I'm doing in June to try and keep me uplifted and looking forward over the next few months. The show one is really the push to exercise and I'm adding it to the wall beside the treadmill too as well as the fridge. My bigger goal is to be at a fit 170 for that show weekend.
Started November floating between 237-240.
November goal of reaching 229/230 - not met, I'm at 233.
I'm not down about it, I accept it and I'm happy with it. Considering the trips and slips I had this month and peri-menapause is playing havoc again with my body where my weight seems to jump up and down on the scale. Just means I will have to work a little harder and focus on what I eat to help my body adjust.
I still have stress that I can't change at this time, I just deal with it as it comes but even that seems to be getting easier. I've been striving to reach for the treadmill or dvd rather than the fridge or cupboard.
December will be better.
* still aiming for 220/219 heading into 2012.
* when we have enough snow, it's never an if, get out and try snowshoeing. I have the shoes, I have the Nordic poles, it's only the "old" me that stands in the way and it's time for her to go. I need to find ways to enjoy the next 4/5 months - next to hoping they go by as quick as summer seemed to.
Side Note: I've been back to work for 4 months, feels like just yesterday I was starting my first day! So I know it's not that long a time, I just need to remind myself of that as we go through these months of white stuff.
* Tuesday's is $2 after-school cross country ski day at the local ski club. When I'm not working, and the roads are good, take DD and DS if he wants to and go for the hour when it starts up.
Trying to stay positive as we head into the worst of the seasons for me. Being a winter hater and living where we get a hugh amount of snow is something I really need to work on so that I won't maybe hate it but at least tolerate it and have fun during it.
