The Plan

So...I came back from vacation and couldn't find my groove....I left it in Vegas...and then I got my period and went on a 4 day binge.....I was insatiable...but I was determined to face the music, sure that my weight gain would kick my butt back into gear....I was up 4 pounds, I'm down 2 of those. But I have a plan for December....I'm referring to the 12's of Christmas....Starting Monday, it is my goal to make it to the gym 12 times and to lose 12 pounds before Christmas morning. I'm even going to start a WW challenge for it too...12 pounds will put me into the 230's...a number I haven't seen since I lost my dad...and I was only there for a second and not in a healthy way. I am paying for WW but making stupid I will get through Thanksgiving, Black Friday and my birthday and I will recommit!! Does anyone else have holiday weight loss plans?

Recap of the Fall Challenge

I'm so glad I participated in the fall challenge!! I want to thank everyone for their encouragement and for giving me some new blog friend's. I draw a lot of inspiration from people on here and glad to see so many motivated women!!. Secondly, I'm glad this coincided with my decision to start WW. I just looked at a progress report though and I only lost 2.8 in the last 4 weeks. I know I shouldn't be disappointed, but I am. I guess I'd planned on losing 5 pounds per month....wasn't a crazy number but just ahead of a pound per week and I've fallen short this past month. I can't be surprised at myself though as I've not been the most faithful. I've tried to go back and track but I'm sure I'm missing little bits here and there....and I've been using more and more of my weeklies which means I don't lose as much. I guess I just need to refocus and keep trying....I can't wait to get through the holidays....they are not joyous for me!! Thanks again to all of the support from my fall challenge buddies!

Extreme walking

Week 7's challenge was to try a new activity or push yourself harder. Due to my usually time constraints,walking in my usual activity. While we were on vacation, we walked more than I've ever walked. I've been wearing my Fitbit for about a year and I've only come close to 20,000 steps once. I hit is several times and my weekly average was we'll over 10,000. I'm nervous to see this week's weigh in... It probably won't be great but I don't feel guilty about what I did because I was far more active than usual so I did something new and pushed myself harder!
