I’ve been AWOL from blogging which is not good. Blogging is my way of holding myself accountable. I ate a lot in my absence from blogging and exercised little. I binged at Thanksgiving, and I’m not quite sure why. I think that the stress of the holidays was getting to me. Poor excuse, but it happened and I’m a few pounds heavier thanks to it.
The weight gain has pushed me far enough behind my “Last Chance Challenge” goals that I must revise it. Some good news is that I can add the gym to my mini goals because starting tomorrow, the hold on our membership will be lifted!
This morning I weighed in at 245 lbs. I am revising my goal weight for January 1st. My new goal is to lose 10 pounds this month, and finally reach 235 lbs! I haven’t been able to reach that weight yet, and I’m excited to be down there! I know that making any goal besides maintaining is tough this time of year, especially for me, but I like to always have a goal in mind to keep me motivated and focused! I am also going to make it a goal to go to the gym at least 3 times a week this month. I have missed the luxury of having the gym available at any time. Since my husband is working a different shift than I, at the moment, we are going to go to the gym separate for the first time since we have had the membership. We really enjoy going together, but I will take advantage of our time apart because this means that I can go to the gym directly after work. There is going to be some planning ahead (bringing the gym clothes/shoes to work, meal planning again, etc.) but I am looking forward to that!
