Monday's are always great for a fresh start! A new lease on life! A do-over! I generally don't like to think of any day or time as a fresh start, because that leads to making excuses (it's better to just jump right back on track when you start thinking this way-don't wait for "Monday") but sometimes a future deadline just seems more obtainable. Whatever works!
I had a wonderful weekend with friends, but it involved drinking and not the best eating. I didn't wait till Monday to start over though. I stopped at the gym on my way home yesterday...I had been in the car for almost 4 hours and before I left, I put my workout clothes on so I would have no excuse. I was actually excited to get into the gym and sweat out some booze and stretch my legs! It was a good workout...I did some running, inclines, and weights! I really need to focus on adding more strength training.
I didn't weigh in last Thursday, but I had had an off week and am pretty sure the four pounds I lost in October were not solid pounds. I fluctuate a lot and I really need to be consistent to take off solid pounds. Instead of celebrating in my weight loss and continuing to move forward, I actually let my mind think that I could let loose a bit...not a good idea! And my successful weigh in was Halloween which of course was a great day to let loose-Damn candy!
Like I said previously, I am not going to stress this holiday season, but I sure the hell am not going to gain. I do not want to exceed 233 at all...it's just not needed.
Here's to Monday!
