I would love to say I'm still on track, going hard and doing great... but life gets in the way and derailed my efforts for awhile. I'm working 50-60 hours a week and have been since middle of October. This makes fitting in my workouts very difficult and Im exhausted all the time. We've also been entertaining which means hitting the pizza and beer a couple times a week for a few weeks straight. We are finally done with the entertaining potential employees and that will help me get back on track.
I've 'maintained' for the past month or so and I can't be unhappy about that fact.. I feel like I've wasted time but honestly it is much better than gaining weight. We have five weeks until Christmas and I still have time to manage to get off 75 pounds total this year, keeping me far enough 200 pounds to never see it again (I'm hovering around 202 right now).
I've planned a trip to San Francisco to visit my brother, sister-in-law, and two neices from Christmas to New Years and can't wait to go. One of my goals was to run the Golden Gate bridge but I've stopped running for the past month. I need to pick it back up and do it quickly! As the seasons have changed it is more challenging than ever to keep up with my routine. It is colder and darker than I like or am use to so trying to work with it seems to be difficult. My Curves membership is expiring in December and I'm looking at joining the YMCA in Findlay to keep me going until we move. If I can do a month to month for Curves I would do that too just because it is an easy 30 minutes. Decisions, decisions!
So I am on here to recommit myself for the next five weeks to get back to my 1000 minutes of fitness and Spark everyday until Christmas. Can't wait to get my 'strong' and healthy feeling back.. how quickly it fades :(
