Goal Check In!

My 30 Day Elliptical Challenge is DONE! Those last ten days were rough y'all. So now it's November 11th and guess how many times I have worked out! NONE! Not once! But I did take a business trip to New York and walked all over the place in dress shoes. And this week I have been super active all over my house, so I know I'm getting some decent movement in. 

So let's talk about the Whole30. I WholeFailed. I lasted 6 days and on the first Saturday our family routine got waaay off and my blood sugar was so low I started feeling woozy and my vision was slowly getting black around the edges. So I ate 3 cups of Cheerios and a cheeseburger and fries. Then I just could not get back on the wagon. I'm not saying the diet is impossible or that anyone should avoid it-- it's actually a great way to eat and I genuinely felt great while I was doing it. It's just not ideal right now.

So what is next? Y'all I am in my fat season. I remember in high school my cousin was playing volleyball and working really hard not to gain weight over the holidays. I was in awe of her (still am for 100 reasons) and I have probably made a vow that I would just try not to GAIN weight over the holidays. How many times has that worked? As many times as I have worked out this month.

So here is my plan. First, absolutely NO CANDY IN MY HOUSE. I am not a moderate person who eats just one piece a day. That has worked as many holiday seasons as I have avoided gaining weight. Second, eat a whole lot of plants and meat and eggs without hormones or antibiotics. Third, I like to eat the same things for breakfast and lunch for weeks and weeks, so I try to make it super healthy and good to eat. My current routine is too boring to share, which is how I like it.

I do not currently have an exercise plan. I am not sure what to do about that.

So there it is. It's not great and I have not lost or gained a pound in two weeks. I am going to keep working on this one.
