Oh Hi Thanksgiving Week…


therighttimeLike I said this year has been crazy with change! With all the change, though, time has been seriously FLYING. In a blink of an eye, summer was gone. The next thing I know, there’s snow! Now in just a few days, everyone is going to be coming over to feast, laugh, and be thankful (at least, I hope they will be thankful). I definitely know how to pick a good week to restart blogging and getting into a more fit and active lifestyle. Why not pick one of the busiest times of the year?

The truth is when I first started on my weight loss journey was 2 weeks before Christmas, and I figured if I could hold to a healthy lifestyle during the holidays, I could do it anywhere/anytime. This year is a little bit different since the Holidays back in Maine we were just surrounded by friends while this year we will be surrounded by a lot of family. This is a whole new experience that I am really excited for since I never came from a big family. Normally it was just me and my parents once my brother and sister moved away. I feel like the holidays become even more magical the more people you are surrounded with (especially with kids around! I am so pumped for Christmas).

Even with all the temptations to be expected this week, my goal is to lose just 1 pound by Sunday. I am starting the week at 202 (cringe) and as much as I would love to get to 200 or lower, I definitely want to be realistic and not set myself up for disappointment. 1 pound is do-able.

Unfortunately, I only have one half hour session with my personal trainer the first half of this week instead of our normal two. I guess it’s only fair that he go home for the Holiday, I suppose! The good news is we are then having a work out session on Saturday so hopefully that will kick my butt in gear for Sunday’s weigh-in. I still plan on going to the gym Wednesday and Friday, though and definitely want to get as much pony time as I can this week! And hopefully with blogging, it will help keep me accountable.

What about you readers? Do you have any goals for this week? Or are you just hoping to make it through without consuming the entire pumpkin pie? Because, honestly, that’s a good one.

I will just leave this here...

  1. Hey friend! It was fun to see your blog pop up in my email again! Glad to see you are doing well and back into the making goals thing! I don’t have much time to blog anymore – but I still try to read and comment when I can! I’ve been trying to lose the weight I gained through pregnancy and after. I have a solid 30 pounds to lose just to be back to what I was during my “healthiest” time. I am doing pretty good with my workouts – focusing on strength training and trying not to make horrible eating decisions. You are right – this is the hardest time of year to make that happen. I think a 1 pound weight loss is a good goal for this week. Good for you! I am excited to hear about your progress!!

    • Congrats on the baby!! I totally missed it. =( But I definitely know they take up a lot of time. haha You totally got this, though!! I just recently started strength training… and it seriously kicks my butt! I definitely missed my blogging community!

  2. good for you for setting a realistic goal for the week. really, there’s no point in just setting yourself up for failure…that’s not so motivating. I’m sure you will reach your goal. you’ve got a good strategy lined up and now you just need to stick to the plan. Good luck!
