I know I said I'd post goals for the week yesterday, but I forgot/slacked, so here they are:
1.) Less than 1400 calories/day
2.) Go to the gym x2
3.) Walk to/from work from/to car x3
4.) Drink 64 oz water/day
Pretty basic stuff for the week.
So, over Thanksgiving (I think it was on Saturday), the four of us were sitting around the table, and I mentioned that I'd gained back about ten pounds, and my mom kind of grimaced and was like, oh Joanna, you shouldn't... blah, whatever. I really didn't take it personally, 'cause I know she meant it like, I don't want to see you go through that again. Now, she's been saying for the past year that she needs to lose some weight, but she never really does anything proactive about it, just keeps making excuses for why she can't do things we've suggested. So I said, somewhat disgruntledly, "I'll lose 10 lbs if you lose 10 lbs." She just kind of shrugged it off. But! The end result after more discussion is that all four of us (Mom, Dad, my sister, and I) have now got a "First to 10 lbs lost" challenge going! We all are putting in $10, and whoever gets there first wins the pot. We've got a weekly thread going with weigh-ins and whatever goals we feel like putting down. My sister is so excited about it - she's pretty healthy, long-distance runner type, although has gained some weight recently. Anyway, so now I've got extra motivation!
