December Goals

Ok, so I was MIA yesterday, but I swear, I’m not dropping back off the blogging bandwagon! I first want to touch on some goals for December, and then hit on some struggles I’m having, primarily with the new WW program.

First, I want to set three goals for December

1. Run, Try to get in most, if not all of my scheduled runs. I understand sickness can happen and sideline things, or an injury, but don’t “opt out” of runs I could normally go on.

2. Stay OP as well as possible, giving myself a lenient Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Being lenient on myself seemed to work best for Thanksgiving, so that will be my stance on the Christmas Holidays as well. New Years shouldn’t be much of an issue for me.

3. Hmm, now for Weight Loss Goals. I think I’m going to shoot for losing 6lbs in the month of December, that would put me at 156.4lbs when I weigh in on Christmas Day (which I may just move up to Christmas Eve morning). I really think I can do this. I’ve been running and doing pretty well OP (barring a few issues this week), so 6 pounds it is.

Well there the goals are. I will definitely include them in a wrap up at the end of December. I’m looking forward to a positive December and feeling A LOT better.
It’s amazing to me that I’ve only been back on WW’s for a couple weeks, but I feel so so much better. Even my clothes already fit better (albeit not as well as I would like them to fit), but it’s just amazing what some exercise and eating right can do for your body. You often forget how good you can feel when you’ve gotten stuck in a rut of gaining weight and feeling bad. But I’m so glad to have that feeling back in my life, I’m happier this way.

Ok, so my new feelings about the new WW’s plan. Well, I like it in principle. I was doing a lot of the things they are trying to promote through the new plan, already on the Old Plan, I tried to pick healthy, less processed foods, and eat a lot of fruits and veggies. But for some reason I can’t seem to get into the swing of the new plan, I have no idea why.

When I would lose a point before with WWs I always found it hard to adjust to having even just one less point I could spend throughout the day. Now, I’m dealing with having more points, and I feel like I should be able to go buck wild, and that’s exactly what happened yesterday. I don’t know why I can’t wrap my head around having more points (even tho my other stuff costs more points now).

So what am I doing? I’m stopping the bad days before I get too off plan, today I’m doing exactly what I was doing for the two weeks prior. I’m following the older points system, I will enter everything into the new points tracker eventually, but I’m doing EXACTLY what I’ve done before. I have routine, I like routine, and any upset to that throws me through a loop, so right now I’m doing what I know.

This doesn’t mean I won’t go over to the new plan, it just means for right now, I don’t want to get out of the groove I’ve been in, and I’m gonna stick with this.

I hope everyone is having a healthy and OP day!

The extra points have definitely gone into the treat yourself category here. Not a good thing!
