Since I’ve started my challenge for the month of November Fridays will now be solely devoted to my Hot 100 Challenge updates.
WEIGHT GOAL: Lose 0.5 – 1.5 lbs a week. I was down this week, back to 191.5. For six weeks I should be down at least 3.0 pounds, so now I’m behind. Since I did see a loss this week I couldn’t put this all in red, just yellow, because I need to get back on track. But, OF COURSE I WILL, because I have to beat Barb this month in total % body weight. 🙂
EMOTIONAL GOAL: **I’ve decided to make my emotional goal the goal of visiting one new blog each week. Connecting with others on this journey is the emotional support I need at this time. I don’t have time to visit blogs and focus on the Beck book, so I’m switching it up for the challenge. Yes. I’ve also accepted the challenge with Barb and this is big for me. I used to be afraid of challenges because I failed at them in the past. I’m excited now and already today the little voice in my head reminded me, “No sweets, because you’ve got to keep those calories down..it worked. 🙂
HOLIDAY GOAL: Only one or two “foo-foo” coffee drinks from Starbucks the week I am visiting my mom in November. I will stick to regular coffee and cream the rest of the weeks. Done.I have to say…lately a white chocolate mocha is not even sounding good because I know a Grande, non-fat, white chocolate mocha is 340 calories and that’s about the size of a good meal for me. Is it really worth it? We’ll see. .. I’m surprising myself with those thoughts that I may not even want one. I’m thinking I may have one, but I’m not sure now. An Americano with some cinnamon sprinkled on top sounds just fine too. 🙂 I’ll let you know.
Tomorrow I leave to go out of town for a week. I will be visiting my mom and I will have time to check in while I’m there. I’ll see if I can talk her into letting me take a picture of her in her “pirate” outfit. She’s finally lost most of her hair from the chemotherapy and so I found this card that said, “If people ask why you’re wearing a scarf tell them you’re a pirate!” LOL
Have a great weekend everyone and, as I often say, thank you for sticking with me so long in this journey. It means a lot!
