Nikki-Getting back to my normal

I know I haven’t weighed in a while but I’m going to wait until Monday to see the damage I did over Christmas.  I don’t know why this year was so difficult for me but I had no willpower to say no and felt like I literally have been grazing like a cow for weeks.  I never start things on January 1 of the new year because I have this superstition that if I start anything on that day it will just be a new years resolution that I won’t follow through on (this is my own superstition so no offence to anyone who can stick to their resolutions).

I’ve been struggling for a while with being motivated, then losing motivation but this is the worst I’ve slipped in about 2 years, so I know exactly how Jill is feeling.  Thank goodness we have a bit more time now that Christmas is over  to help each other get back on track.

These are the goals I came up with back on October 24.


1. Weight train 2-3x weekly

2. To be able to do 20 regular push ups with no breaks and without being totally out of breath after.

3. Reach goal weight of 140lbs

this is a goal I don’t know if I’ll be able to actually accomplish, but I’m going to try!

4. Do one unassisted pull up


I had been doing well until the second week into December.  I feel as though I’ve set myself back, but these are still reasonable and doable goals for myself, so these will continue to remain the same for me.  I of course like to have something smaller to work towards each week and will continue to come up with mini goals to work on each week.

This weeks mini goals- I have until sunday to do these ones since I usually start new ones on Monday.

1. Run 25km this week (did 5km this morning so I’m getting back to my normal routine)

I did this tonight after dinner.  I have half of the best chocolate cake, I’ve ever had in my life, in my fridge from a Christmas dinner we had on Saturday. I could easily go eat the entire thing right now and I almost had a slice, but instead I opted for a pear and a decaf coffee.

3. Come up with a shopping list, I’ll purchase everything on Monday, that I can prepare some quick and healthy meals/crockpot meals.
