Ok December, your not going to win this year. So far this month has me spinning out of control, and it is really only day two! I’ve vowed to loose weight this month, so as promised I’m going to do a weigh in with you. I also need to share some new December goals. Christmas has everyone’s panties in a knot, and I can’t wait for this season to be done. I am not the grinch, but I am not religious either. I love giving and receiving gifts. I love seeing friends and relatives. I love how I can do that any time of year. Birthday’s are more important to me then Christmas. Enough of me ranting about Christmas though. There are way more important things to do.
- Drink eight glasses of water. Not eight glasses of tea, milk or diet pop. Straight pure water. I tend to get dehydrated really easily and to be honest I am not the nice of a person if I don’t drink enough water. I really want to focus on drinking a big glass of water in the morning. Something to refresh my system and start the day.
- No guilty feelings for not attending crappy holiday parties. Every year Christmas gets everyone in a buzz. I like having cocktails. I like having tiny little canapes. I do not need to attend 4 parties a week. Two or three for the entire season will be more then enough. For those I don’t attend to, Sorry I’m Not Sorry.
- I want to run 100 miles in December. I don’t think I can make that goal any clearer. Robby created the December Going The Distance Challenge, and 100 miles will be a total crapshoot for me to do this month. I want my ass, legs and ego to hurt. Running one hundred miles during the busiest month of the year will help me believe in myself.
I want to bake gooey brownies this month, make sugar cookies and enjoy turkey with all the trimmings. This month will bring lots of laughs, a few tears and hopefully a successful end to the year. Now on to my weight…duh duh dun.
I HATE MY WEIGHT. I am embarrassed by it. I do not like disclosing it. I am fully admitting that my weight scares me. I am going to give you my weight in a totally different way than anyone has ever done it. Rather than man up to it ( I am totally not there yet), I will give you the last two numbers. I will most likely disclose my weight at the end of the month. I am not ready to fully take a gulp from the shame cup yet.
Here is my weight; *22.8
I blocked out the front number. Yes I know my blog should be a place where I can talk about anything. I know I shouldn’t be ashamed, but I am. This is also the month I am working on getting over that. I am really hoping to make progress. I have already told you I want to loose weight this holiday season. A combo of healthy eating and working out will help make this a reality for me.
Here is a quick re-cap on my November goals. I wanted to find a new gym, and unfortunately I really haven’t. I have temporarily accepted mediocrity with my local leisure centre. It isn’t completely awful. This is an ongoing search. Any recommendations are more then welcome. My second goal was to exercise for 30 days straight. I almost want to laugh out loud when I type that sentence. I exercised for 6 days straight. One day, and after many therapy sessions I will figure out why I am afraid of commitment. For the third goal, I certainly did eat vegetarian twice a week. Some weeks I omitted meat more. I have a few recipes I will be posting shortly on the site, they turned out delicious. It was nice to mix it up and have some healthy alternatives to chicken. The best part about November was how I completely rocked my independence. I had a pretty relaxing month, got a pedicure and a manicure and just was comfortable with doing what I wanted to do. Every month should be like this. I felt refreshed coming into December.
What makes you want to scream around the Holiday time? How do you stay on track with eating healthy eating and exercising during all of the chaos?
