So November is probably the worst time to start a nutrition/fitness challenge. Well at least to me. Two weeks ago, I told myself to buckle down. And I did… kinda… sort of… but seriously, the SUGAR MONSTER, got me! If there was candy to be had, I was having it!
So I’m part of a 6 week nutrition challenge. And well it’s nutrition but it’s limited. Booooooo! Kidding, it’s good for me. It’s good to get my head screwed on straight. But it’s NOVEMBER! All the delicious foods are out and about. It’s all in my face, smirking, begging me to taste it. All the holiday beverages are being released, it’s all so tempting. Ugh! But this is the time where will power must take over.
Here’s my truth… I’m back up 10 lbs! SMH! My clothes aren’t stretching out just yet, but geesh. Why did I work so hard to just let TEN POUNDS creep back up on me? Por que?!?
It’s frustrating to say the least. But when you go rogue. Have “tastes” of all the good foods and drinks. Then you don’t just have a “taste,” you go whole hog! And that’s what I did.
So now I’m on my sad LIMITED meal plan for 6 weeks! We’ll see where I end up. Hopefully, I’m back down 10 lbs. Maybe more (crossing fingers)! It is amazing though, how my mind works. I’m on a challenge, so even though the cravings are there, I’m not caving in. I’m being strong. There are a lot of temptations in my face all day long. And I can just block it all out. Let’s hope I can stay strong for the next 6 weeks.
It’s only DAY 2 for me. If you want to join this ride, let me know, it’s not too late. You don’t have to do what I’m doing but you can choose to buckle down and make this holiday season a healthy-ish one!
Let’s do this party people!
