I can’t believe there are only 17 days left in 2017. I say this every year but it really does feel like the years are just flying by way too fast. I’m not anywhere near where I want to be weight wise and I actually weigh more now than I did at the beginning of the year! I turned 35 in November and I think it is safe to say my metabolism is definitely slowing down. I’ve gained almost 20lbs since last August and I’m blaming it on my eating habits (obviously) and not exercising enough. I work out at least 3x a week but that isn’t enough because I should be working out at least 5x a week. Recently I saw my doctor and had some blood work done just to rule out any thyroid issues — I had a feeling my thyroid was fine since I didn’t have any of the symptoms associated with an underactive thyroid but I needed to be sure. Anyway, blood work came back fine, I just need to stop eating like crap and exercise more — oh and more WATER.
I recently upgraded my Orangetheory membership to unlimited and it has been awesome. Instead of spreading out 8 classes a month I can take as many as I want! Right now I’m averaging three times a week — usually consecutively due to my schedule — and my body has been getting stronger. Aside from upgrading my OTF membership, I’m also trying Weight Watchers — again. I did internet only a few months ago and pretty much wasted my money since I didn’t lose any weight. This time around I’m doing meetings so unless I want to embarrass myself with weight gain each week, I’ll follow the plan. They recently rolled out a new plan with many foods now being 0 points — eggs, skinless chicken breasts, fish, fruit, and so many more. With so many foods now being 0 points, eating those will help me stay within my points.
Anyway, I’m working on some goals I’d like to meet in 2018 but I’ll post about those later –hopefully, lol.
