Change in weight (11/30/20 – 12/7/20): -0.2 LBS
Life has been crazy. I wanted to have this post drafted and out to you all hours ago. But alas, here we are. This will be a shorter post, but I encourage you to check out my year in review post from Saturday!
I had a steady week. I never felt it was one to move me farther along towards my goals, but I did not feel I was missing the mark. So understanding that, it was good! This week was a realistic and future-ish week for me. This means it is one that could be sustainable for long term care. I had some good workouts, but not as many as I wanted. I ate okay, with some splurges and some better days. But this week was full of real life variables. I had to do ‘storm duty’ for work, twice. For this, I am tied to my desk for a 12 hour shift. It is really hard to stay moving and consistent with this. I got walks in when I could and I did some heavier rides when I could. All in all, not bad. Once I get closer to my goal weight, whatever that may be, I would like to think these weeks will be what I shoot for.
I would like to put my head down and get a little more aggressive for December. I have done well for a long time, but I want to prove to myself my discipline can be as strong as I want it to be. I want to be more disciplined about my calorie intake, my vegetable intake, and my exercise. I am planning to cap my calories at 2400 per day. This is a level that is in line with my goals and my BMR. Lately the random cookies and treats have seen my calories tick up…
As I have been writing this it dawned on me, I want to manage December and the holidays, I do not want them to manage me.
Leave a like or a comment. Do you ever celebrate when you just maintain? How do you all plan on managing your December? Will it manage you, or will you manage it?
