Weigh-In -- 19Nov17

Sunday, November 19, 2017

Weighed in the same as last time.

Lost my water and exercise streaks. Have restarted the exercise streak, but not the water.

Results for the last two weeks -

At least 10 minutes of cardio a day - 11/14

Drink at least 64oz. of water each day - 5/14
At least 7.5 hours of sleep every night - try a bit more... emoticon

Steps - 4250 + steps - 5 days out of 7 - 3/14

Log food at least 4 days - 5/14

I just haven't had much motivation for the past couple of weeks. I think it may be a delayed reaction to the crappy cold, windy, wintry weather we've been having. I know I should be prepared for it, but somehow, this year's weather just seems weird...

Witness the Christmas cactus bloom I got a couple of weeks ago --

I am now starting to get a few more of these, but it is usually around Thanksgiving that they start blooming and last well into March.

So let's see if I can light a fire under myself for next week.

At least 10 minutes of cardio a day
Drink at least 64oz. of water each day
At least 7.5 hours of sleep every night - try a bit more...
Steps - 4250 + steps - 5 days out of 7
Log food at least 4 days (gonna step this one up a bit)

Have a great Thanksgiving week and don't celebrate too much...

    Lovely! I don't know why they call them Christmas Cactus, they never bloom at Christmas lol. Our weather has been very cold, gloomy and snowy for all of November :-(( We haven't had one like this for a long time. We are used to cold, but normally get sunshine with it, so a double whammy. Yes it sure does sap the motivation. Just want to snuggle in my blankey and read and eat everything I am not supposed to lol.
    But we worked too hard to get this weight off so want to keep going.

    I don't respond well to bad weather either. I am very weather driven. I love Christmas cacti and wish I could grow them. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving too!

    Love your Christmas cactus! So beautiful.

    Way to go on starting your fitness streak again.

    The holidays and winter approaching with the shorter days and darker skies just make this journey all the tougher. You can do it though! Hang in there.

    I'm feeling the same way! Already tired of the snow & ice & this wind! Just not sleeping well at all? Getting in my water & exercise but all the rest has fallen by the wayside so need to step it up & find my motivation! We can do this!

    Your cactus is gorgeous! My mom has several& they spend the summer outside in a shady spot & start budding& blooming when she brings them in. She has a red one just loaded with blooms this week!
