The Holidays are coming

3.1 miles outside was harder than I thought it was going to be… It's amazing how much easier the treadmill can make things.  My hubby was able to work from home today so I seized the opportunity to go outside and run.  Both the dog and I both needed it!  I work a hoodie for my run and had sweat stains in the crook of my arm!?  How weird is that?  Has that been happening to me all along and I just never noticed or is this new?  I am leaning towards always there…

Tis the most dreaded time of the year.  Holidays.  Holidays single handedly derail 80% of people’s weight loss goals.  Stuffing, cookies, pies, mashed potatoes with lots of butter, candy, and did I mention butter.  It is sooo easy to fall off the wagon this time of year.  It's even harder to reset yourself this time of the year as well because each day(at least that what is seems like) you are faced with a new challenge!  Co-workers brings baked goods, holiday parties, after work holiday drinks, wine because your kids are napping, your mom’s side thanksgiving followed by your dad’s side, a cocktail because your kids are coloring.... For the next 60 days our self discipline will be tested at every turn!  

 

It is so hard to lose weight this time of year.  Halloween is only the beginning
