I read the other day this is the month that people gain the most weight. All of the yummy treats and multiple Christmas meals with family and friends, it’s easy to put the weight on.
I had been trying Intermittent fasting, but if I got stressed or depressed I would eat. Yep I’m a stress eater🙄. It becomes a vicious cycle. I decided I needed to set some short term goals. I wanted realistic goals that I could easily meet and if I had a bad day I wouldn’t fall apart.
I have had a lot tummy related issues with food. Some days I say “I hate food and wish I didn’t have to eat”!! I do enjoy smoothies and meal replacement shakes, so I’m going that route this month. I will munch on raw veggies and fruit in between. My suppers will include fish, chicken and veggies. Chloe and I do make a lot of treats in December. If I want something I will have it in moderation. Another goal is to drink a gallon of water every day. I have been on a sweet tea kick since Thanksgiving. Gotta stop that for awhile.
My goal for exercise is to walk 15 to 20 miles a week. I bought an old Leslie Sansone walking Dvd to use. She fast walks in her new ones, which is good, but it hurts my knees. The older workouts are easier on my joints. I’m also adding in yoga in the mornings. I am hoping to get Chloe stretching along with me.
I have been yo-yoing up and down the scale for months. It’s time to take control.
Do any of you workout more in December so you can enjoy all of the yummy treats?
