November is going well.
I am unexplainably tired the last few days but I am sure it will pass. I am still getting my steps in and have been to the YMCA 5/7 days the last three weeks so I am pleased with that. I'm increasing my minutes/distance on the recumbent cycle as well as my treadmill walking speed and experimenting with the ellipitcal! I say experimenting because I have yet to figure out how to not feel like I am going to fall off with every movement!
I hit the 20 lb goal I wanted for the end of November and my next goal is to be under 200 by January 6. That's my first weigh-in in January and I think far enough away from Christmas/New Years to have lost the sodium / water retention from Christmas Dinner and New Year's Celebrations.
I had promised myself a full mani/pedi for my 10 lbs loss and I haven't done it yet. So I will carry that to my 20 lbs loss and do that this weekend. I am also going to try Aquafit this Saturday morning.
My brother has arrived from England and his first day here, he cooked a lovely meal. Rich, decadent and fried! I loaded my plate with salad and took small portions of the chicken, cheeses and bread. I think if I stick to my points during breakfast and lunch and take small portions of his cooking and keep eating lots of vegetables, I should be fine while he's here.
As yet, we don't know how long he's staying.....so keep your fingers crossed that I can hang in there!
In other news, our lovely Fall has finally departed and Winter has arrived. There was ice on the roads this morning and I actually skidded on some black ice and had to swerve to avoid hitting a car in front of me. Thankfully I have good reflexes and good brakes! Snow tires go on this evening - just in the nick of time!
