Delayed Thanksgiving

Monday, November 23, 2015

Super stressful week ahead for me. Another year working in retail - sigh.

It was really getting to me last week...managed to work close to 40 hours in only 4 days! Did exercise on my day off, but found myself stress eating and making bad food choices on ALL the other days. Too much that was too sweet! And not enough water. Sitting on my butt during breaks and staring/worrying. It all added to my 3rd week in a row of .5 pound weight gain.

So I am challenging myself to lose 1.5 pounds by "Thanksgiving". In my family that is celebrated on SATURDAY so more of us can attend. With less caffeine, more water, less alcohol and wedging in real fitness in between everything else I believe I can do it!

Good luck to you all on this kick-off for the Holiday Season! I hope you can meet your goals and challenges and WIN!

    Sugars & alcohol add lots of unnecessary calories and water is the liquid that fills the stomach especially when a glass is drunk just before a meal. Be sure to eat ALL you meal and us a smaller plate. That works fantastic!! If you can do this, you can make your goal. Good luck!!

    Hugs and good luck to you too! It's like we're here for help and here we are, so we can do it, with all this support. I plan on trying to get support every day right here all through this week. I'll be having a large water with me all the time too. I have a crustless pumpkin pie in the oven now and it smells so good, and it's not as fattening as the real thing and tastes so heavenly. We can enjoy in moderation and still come out the winner!! I will and you will!!

    I KNOW you can do this! One thing that helps me is every morning I fill up two water bottles that are each four glasses of water. That way I have it ready to go and it's easily portable if I'm running errands or something. Good luck!
