The Holiday Challenge!

So today starts the Challenge!  I'm so excited.  I definitely need this little push to get me going.  I think I'm just still in a little bandster hell - not feeling much restriction, although definitely eating less than I did onceuponaTIMEBEFORETHEband.  :)  I am hoping to up the exercise a little too.

Speaking of which - so last night DH and I had our anniversary celebration, staying at a local nice hotel, dinner, and a horse drawn carriage ride.  We went and checked in and then both went to the workout room.  I did the first day of Couch to 5k.  I actually ran!  For a minute!  With a minute and a half between each bit of running!  8 cycles!!  31 minutes of this!!  So excited.  The last time I tried this, I couldn't do one time.  Mostly because (I think) I could barely walk and even just the 20 pounds or so I've lost since the beginning have made the difference!  Anyway - good times!!  The rest of the night was wonderful   Just good to spend time with DH and relax and be away and do fun things together.  I didn't do too bad with food.  One Cosmo, 5oz fillet with a little blue cheese on it.  You know - up the protein.  Salad, with dressing on the side.  half of the side of mashed potatoes.  And dessert.  But overall, not bad for a good night out.

Back to the challenge!  I weighed in heavy today - 263.8.  Not sure how I feel about that - although I'm glad it's at the beginning.  I think I'm getting ready for a period - so I am anticipating a quick loss there.  We'll see. At very least, though, I am hoping to get back on track with basics.  No pop. More good protein.  More Water.  More exercise.

Can you believe it's November???
