My pampering was almost ruined by the scales... I was half a pound up yesterday morning. Very disappointed in that because even though I didn't put in the effort with my exercise, I did put in the effort with my food. But, thankfully, I had measured myself on Sunday night to compare my stats to what I was 12 weeks ago and I was very happy with what I saw.
The scales may not have been kind to me, but at least the measuring tape was. That's 9.5 inches lost all over my body in 12 weeks and I think that's not to be sniffed at. I can feel it in my clothes and have already dropped a dress size. I am very happy I took these measurements because I think if I hadn't, that half pound would have resulted in me saying "Feck it, where's the selection box"?
With only four weeks left of the year, I am going to give it all I have got to start 2016 at a minimum of one stone lighter than when I started 2015. I will go into the new year with a much smaller challenge ahead of me. I will not throw in the towel!
The party season is upon me and my wee diary is already filling up with fun and frolicks. I love this time of year, catching up with people and getting dolled up and just the general happiness that seems to reign supreme for most. So as I was scooting around the interweb looking for inspiration from some of my favorite bloggers such as the very talented Skinny Doll, I stumbled across a great post from another blog called 59 Pounds to Go. This post had a great idea for planning the festive season that I am going to get on board with.
This is my plan for tackling the party season
My goals for December are as follows:
Survive Christmas with a maximum of 2lb gain
Exercise every day
Do a minimum of 11,500 steps per day
Drink at least 2.5l of water per day
Track every day
Happy 1st of December everyone!
