Today was my weigh in, and I am happy to say I lost 5 lbs. I stayed on track, ate mostly clean and I kept my calories between 1,200 and 1,400. It was a challenging week due to the fact my cat Rascal was hospitalized and it’s the Christmas Season.
It seems everywhere I go holiday goodies vie for my attention but I bought no calorie holiday beverages to make me feel like I too can be festive. I’m trying to find joy despite caring for a very sick cat, being away from my beloved California and if course the fact I lost my Mother six months ago. She was the best when it came to Christmas and my heart is so heavy as my December birthday and Christmas approach.
I find myself in new territory, sadness has never been part of my repertoire. With that said, I’m losing weight again because feeling healthy is so much more delicious than food that makes me gain weight. Health and confidence is my priority, along with collecting cans for my food drive. So many people are sad and hungry and helping others always makes me feel better. I’m trying to find some holiday cheer.
First week done and a success. Now it’s time to add my workouts and running back into the mix. I never give up. I’m 25 lbs to go to weigh 159 lbs, the weight I was six months ago before leaving California and before I lost my Mother. My final goal is 135 lbs. I can do this. You believe therefore you achieve.
Are you trying to lose weight and get fit during this season of joy? Did you just start. You can look at it like a bad time to start, or getting a head start on New Years resolutions.
Let’s do this.
Love and Light
