Every day in December Weight Wars is going to offer you up a little slice of something to keep you healthy in December and beyond!
Quinoa Pizza Bites!
Have you noticed how dark its getting lately? Hows it affecting your energy levels? For me I’m struggling through long days at work and no matter what I’m doing I’m struggling. The lovely people at Energy When You Need It Most offered to send me some Gluco Tabs to try I thought why not! If they help me through right now I’ll try anything!
As you can see I got to try out the Gluco Juice and the Tangy Orange tabs. The Gluco Juice is really tasty and I really did notice a pick up in my energy not long after having it. It got me through a 12 hour day at work from an afternoon slump. The tabs are chalky in texture but are really quite tasty to chew on. They again picked up my energy after an afternoon slump.
Now I’m not usually one for pick me ups like this but in the poor weather sometimes I just need a little pep!
I can’t begin to explain the feelings I felt when this flashed up on the screen. I’ve got close to this point time and time and time again over the past year, I’ve screwed it up and left myself with a lot of work to do everytime I was near the threshold, and quite honestly I expect to dip below it again over the coming weeks, Christmas is tricky. But I swear next year. I’m going to see 70. I would love to see 80 and 90 too.
What I’m focussed on right now, is in two and a half lbs I will be half way to the initial target weight that I’ve set myself. That feels so so massive. MASSIVE. To me, its a bit scary massive. I’m scared of it because I’ve struggled and battled my way to this point and its taken a lot longer than I imagined it would, its been much much harder emotionally than I ever imagined too. My life has changed beyond imagination in those 60 lbs. I had no idea what it would mean to me.
So the next 65 lbs have so much behind them. So much learnt, so much understood about myself, so much love. I hope that I will have so much more to learn to. So much more love to give and receive. So many more adventures to have. I’m excited for those last 65lbs.
So last Friday I had my second weekly weigh in … the countdown to new year is on now and I’m hoping to be at my lowest weight by new year. I update my weigh in the week afterwards. Last week I had a bit of a dodgy week. I didn’t make amazing choices food wise but I did eat to my appetite which was very fluctuating.
Anyway… The result was….
Very glad to report another loss and pretty much what I deserved I think . But what it does give me is a milestone
I can’t believe that we are nearly at the end of the year! It’s been an epic 11 months and so much of my life is completely different to how it was at the beginning of the year. Next year I’ll be taking a different approach to goal setting and I’ll talk more about that in the final post of the year.
I feel like I did pretty good in November, I haven’t eaten out more than twice for the first time in the whole year ! I’ve done plenty towards Christmas, I’ve not managed to stay within budget but with Charlies birthday and Christmas approaching thats close to impossible.
I’m happy with my achievements this month and going in to the last month I hope I can look back on the year in December and recognise my achievements.
