I'm saying 10 (is it six weeks or 7??) with a supersecret goal of a little more than that. Mainly, I am really gauging it by this one pair of jeans that's a little snug yet. If they fit comfortably by the end of the MC, I'll be happy. I try not to focus too much on the scale anymore.
To do this, I know I need to:
- eat healthier snack options, meals are usually pretty good but snacking kills me
- exercise daily with no excuses, even if it's yoga or just a walk. Still not running more than 10 mins at a time yet
- do something nice for myself as a reward at the end of every week (NOT food)
I'm also taking measurements, which I'm NOT posting publicly, and would like to see some reductions in those by the end of the MC.
As a side note, the spirit of the MC has always been to help & encourage each other through the holidays, which can be rough on the healthy lifestyles we try to have during the year. I hope everyone involved will continue to support and encourage not only your teammates, but the other players as well (within the spirit of healthy competition, of course!). We're not here to criticize anyone's goals or efforts at achieving them, we're all in this together (even though All I Want For Christmas is gonna kick all yer butts!!!
) so please keep your feedback constructive.
