    I’m switching to calorie counting this month to see how it will work for me, I have a girlfriend who just lost 13 pounds calorie counting, it’s easy to track on the MFP app so I’m going to give it a go!! This is a great challenge for December, with all the holiday parties maybe we will be more aware and stay away from the treat table!!

    Just thinking of how I could be under 120 with a lot of hard work sounds amazing.

    The end of November really got me...with being at home, having more access to ice cream and junk food. It happens and December is here!

    Thinking about the end of December will be an even bigger challenge than Thanksgiving week. I will not be working (neither FT nor PT) from 12/21 to 12/31. My last day at the seasonal PT job will be the 16th - I'm done.

    BUT...I am so excited to finally have time for the gym again. My husband and I will do our best to go as much as possible from the 21st to 31st.

    Give me strength, y'all!

    December Loss ~

    Thoughts: Fixed a typo in yesterday's weight. Missed my workout and got very few steps yesterday, just not feeling up to par. I started the Quench 5 Day Plan today. Will see what the week looks like at the end of it. It's not a diet plan, it's a plan to increase more effective plant-based hydration into your life.

    Morning smoothie was only 97 calories, and not particularly filling - so probably not a sustainable breakfast substitution. The plan makes using that morning smoothie as breakfast optional. I'll either need to make it more substantial, or make sure breakfast is light to stay within calorie range.

    December Game Plan & Goals: (Use stats from Fitbit 7 Day Summary)
    • Continue Meal Planning
    • Log meals & exercise daily in MFP
    • Focus on daily 500 calorie deficit goal
    • No calorie intake after 8pm.
    • Hit Fitbit step goal of 5000 - 3631 ⬇
    • Hit active minutes goal of 20 minutes daily - 39 ⬇
    • Hit strength training goal of 3 days on & 1 rest day

    Strength Training:
    Squats, lunges, push-ups (elevated), arm circles, side bends, & tricep lifts.
    • 12/1-4 - missed, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/5-8 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/9-12 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/13-16 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/17-20 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/21-24 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 12/25-28 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
