Today I am starting a "5 Pounds in 5 Weeks: Over the Holidays" Challenge. The way I see it is that I could easily put ON 5 pounds over the holidays (both Thanksgiving and Christmas), and the sometimes erratic eating schedule that comes with them. But if we don't put on 5 pounds, but instead lose 5 pounds, that's an effective 10-pound difference in what we could have been.
So as I examine the next 5 weeks, through December, I am asking myself if I want to be five pounds heavier or 5 pounds lighter at the end of December.
How about you? Will you join in, starting today, November 24, 2019, for the challenge? We all need some extra motivation over the holidays, maybe this is exactly what we need.
My commitment is to weigh daily and record all food and exercise, even on the holidays when I know things will be crazy busy with friends and family coming over. The only time I cannot weigh in is when I will be traveling to China (a few days in December).
Let's see if this holiday season things will be different than previous holiday seasons, where we all end up needing to make a "New Year's Resolution" to lose the weight we put on over the holidays. I believe things can be different!
