So I’m going to be honest, I was really nervous about stepping on the scale this morning. I did not track every day I was home (there goes goal number 1). I did not exercise every day when I was home (I ran a couple miles on day with my mom, and was on my feet all day working with my sister another day. But there goes goal number 2). And I don’t think I’m going to reach my goal of getting below 183.5 before November ends. HOWEVER, a less than 2 pound weight gain after being home for a full week, eating out almost every day because we had minimal food at my house, and surviving Thanksgiving without gaining 5 pounds in that day alone is a pretty big feat, so I’m not totally discouraged.
These next two weeks are going to be really hard to get a) enough exercise, b) adequate amounts of sleep, and c) track all my food because I’m going into finals. And this semester I have a paper and a test for basically every class, and they’re all due as of yesterday. So I’m going to try my best! If I can lose weight, or even just maintain my weight during finals, I’ll be in a better position than any of my other past 6 semesters of college finals.
It’s still my goal to ring in 2013 in the 170s. That’s at least a 6.8 pound weight loss in the next month. I’ve got one full month (and a couple days) to do it. I also have to survive Christmas, and going back home again. I think I can do it. So December goals are being set. 170’s, here I come!
