I may have made a mistake this morning. Or I may have had a revelation. Either way, it started on the scale. Sure, weighing yourself the day after a holiday is stupid, but maybe it’s the motivation I needed.
I’m a firm believer in looks over numbers, so when I saw a few unflattering shots pop up, it made me question the other.
I don’t admit my weight to many people (except the entire internet, I guess), but I’m disgusted with myself. Sure, I haven’t been working out a lot, and I haven’t really paid any attention to what I’m eating, but one of my goals with moving home was to LOSE weight, not gain it.
So, today, as blog as my witness, I will begin No Drink November.
- No soda (diet included!)
- No tea or coffee
- No energy drinks
- No alcohol (OK – I know Thanksgiving is at the end of the month. If you need a drink to survive your family, just wait until then!)
- Flavored water is fine (I’ll be making Sassy Water!)
This is not going to be easy – I very rarely walk out of my house without a Gold Peak Green Tea in hand, and I’m just as guilty as everyone else with enjoying a glass of wine or few beers at happy hour. However, it’s what I need to do to feel better about myself.
In addition, I’m going to keep a food diary. Not a calorie count or carb count, but just a drill down of what I’ve ate throughout the day. Hopefully this will help me narrow in on what has changed.
I’ll post an update on Nov. 14, two weeks to the start day. Wish me luck!
