Fit Readers is a group/challenge run by Felicia @ Geeky Bloggers Book Blog and Jen @ That’s What I’m Talking About, designed to support and encourage each other on our health and fitness goals. In years past I’ve participated but just done quick updates on my Sunday Post. This year, I want my goals to be a top priority, so I’m going to share my updates in a separate, more detailed weekly post. The day it appears will probably fluctuate, though, so just keep your eyes out for it 🙂
December 1 – 6 Update
I decided to start my updates running Monday through Saturday moving forward. Even though I’m posting on Friday, a week starts on Sunday or Monday and starting it on Saturday was just too confusing. So this update is actually November 30 – December 6, but I’m using December goals for simplicity sake.
This week defeated me. I started out really trying. By like Friday, I was done. The stress of a fussy Dante and the scale not paying off from my efforts even slightly… I was done. By Saturday I was eating Holiday Oreos, not worrying about what I ate or drank in the slightest and not even caring if I worked out. I rescheduled to see my nutritionist Monday, so I will get back on track. She’s great at helping with that.
- Get down to my pre-pregnancy weight (ongoing goal – not just for the month) and stay below start weight for the month. Up so many pounds… like 7 or more. I stopped weighing by Saturday.
- 1 healthy treat per day, wine 3 times a week max. I suck at this. I stress eat and I guess I’m stressed.By Saturday I threw in the towel and just ate WTF I felt like. Not a great plan, but I was over it. I have an appointment with my nutritionist on Monday and will try to get back on track.
