With Thanksgiving done and Mr. Gaunt’s Birthday finalizing tomorrow. I am OFF the Holiday Eating Wagon and onto the IM A BRIDE IN 10 MONTHS! So it’s on like Donkey Kong! I’ve got about 5 pounds to lose before the New Year, and then Id like to lose another 20 pounds by the time we move, March 11th for me.
I’m still on the fence about the gym. Id really like to go back. I’ve been battling a bit of depression lately, and I know that exercise gives you “happy” endorphins. So I’m feeling like I may need to do it for my weight loss as well as my mental health. I just need to figure out where I can shave $30 out of the current budget for it. Its something Mr. Gaunt and I need to make a priority. And then of course I need to use it, actually go to the gym regularly.
But eating healthy and getting into shape will be my focus. I know there is still Christmas, which brings (yet another) Work Christmas Party AND Work Dessert Party. But you know what, I’ve got bigger things to focus on. One Christmas, or feeling better about myself…hmm…I pick me. Might seem selfish, but it’s what I want to do.
If anyone else out there IN THE WORLD is also making some holiday weight loss plans Id love to hear about them! Sometimes I feel a bit alone in my struggles. Besides Mr. Gaunt, I really don’t have anyone to hold me accountable, its tough. Lately I just havent felt so good about myself, and I don’t like that feeling. I did a really good thing for myself and felt pretty good for a while, but its time to move forward, its time to keep putting along and always working towards a better me.
Good job honey. I am also taking the left over stuffing, gravy, etc. to Forrest (who has a goal of getting his holiday fat on before going back to farmering in a couple months). I’m still at the pool all the time, but really need to stop letting myself eat whatever. Veggies for me! Love you, and we’ll try to be an inspiration for each other.
