Weigh-In #2- The not so good and a plan – The Shrinking Jeans of Lisa


December 1, 2010 By lisa

The last time I weighed myself officially was 2 weeks ago:  161.8lbs

Today’s weight:  164.4 lbs

Gain of 2.6 lbs

Not surprising given my utter disregard for my eating plan for Thanksgiving week and being away from home.  It sucks, but I am not surprised. All my clothes still fit comfortably so that is one blessing.  I cannot change what I have already done, BUT I can get back on track with eating right and exercising, which brings me to my three five goals for December.

I’m going back to the basics for this month.

  1. Eat 5 servings of fruits and veggies EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.  (I have already eaten 3.5 servings today and it’s only 12:45pm!).  I have been lazy with this recently and I just feel ick.  Time to get back in the game and give my body the good stuff.
  2. Exercise a minimum of four times a week and shot for five times a week.  Exercise will be either running, spinning, swimming, a fitness class, or lifting weights. 
  3. Register for my next race.  I am finding that I NEED something to train for, otherwise, I just flounder with the exercise/running.  I need a plan or I find excuses not to fit it in, especially during the holidays when SO many things compete for my attention.  I mean, on a normal day, I am ridiculously busy but throw in the month of December on top of the normal busy, and it’s enough to drive me insane.  I need to pick a race to train for so that I will actually train and so that my brain can relax fromthe exercise endorphins and not freakin’ explode.
  4. In the same manner, I want to simplify some areas of my life.  I’ll get back to you on this one.
  5. Lastly, journal journal journal.  It’s my least favorite thing to – I abhor it because then I can’t cheat.  Yes, I realize how stupid this sounds, but writing down what I eat is the bane of my existence.  However, I also know that if I have to write it down, then I am less likely to shove more than is necessary in my piehole that sounds all kinds of wrong.

So let’s just get on with it so that I get the weight off.  I want to be in the 150′s by the time New Year’s hits.
