Staying STRONG during the break

Friday, November 30, 2012

For the STRONG challenge we are to write a plan of attack for staying strong during the holiday break.

Exercise plan: Workout at the Y! Yes, we're getting our passes this coming week. I'm super excited to be working out in a gym again. While it is more affordable than a regular gym membership, it is still quite a bit of money~ I want to make it worth it! Plus, how can you go wrong with free child care!?

Eating plan: 1. don't refill the chocolate stash. Yeah, I have a chocolate stash, right close to me in my desk drawer. It is now depleted, and I plan to keep it that way.
2. Keep sweets hard to get. I know I can't totally avoid sweets. It's Christmas time, and I love to bake and make candies. It's just what I do. But that doesn't mean I need to keep them accessible and always available.
3. Stock up on whole foods! I'm trying to swing back into whole foods. Once I'm finally not sick anymore, I plan on making some great meals! With this I plan to plan my meals, write them on the calendar, and shop accordingly. Freggies, freggies, freggies!
4. Limit the treats from Trader Joes. I love the holiday season at Trader Joes. They have the tastiest treats! But they come at a price.

Support Plan: I'm not sure about this one. I know I can't do it without support. Maybe I'll look into other Spark groups. Maybe I'll make my own.

Motivation: two words: skinny jeans. This time of year is hard when my husband is away working. We have a Christmas party with friends when he's done with work, and this year I really want to look good! I bought a pair of skinny jeans- and I want to look good in them. While they do fit... I could look a little better, and I've got three weeks to do it!

    You can do a lot in three weeks! Bet they'll look great. I'd be glad to be your buddy this month if you like. Just got back into it and I'm highly motivated right now. :)
