November is coming to a close and the busy weekend are starting to take a bit of a toll on me I have to say. I'd love to have the time to get meal prepping on a Sunday but I have conceded that for the rest of the year I am going to have to rely on what I can get in Dunnes on a Monday to make do for work lunches for the week. Weigh in last week went much better than I expected and I only gained 1lb. I have put that firmly behind me and started my new week fresh as soon as I got home from weigh in.

After the last few weeks of up and down, this week the scales finally caught up and I lost 3lbs. The only reason that happened was because I trusted the program and stuck with it. It would have been so easy to get frustrated by the lack of movement on the scales and give up. No matter what the scales are saying, if you know you are sticking to the plan then don't give up. The scales will always catch up!

I love Christmas, well most aspects of Christmas. We all know it can be a serious struggle to get through the holiday season without gaining back a lot of the weight we work so hard to lose throughout the rest of the year. I find, as with anything the key to getting through the season is planning! While it may seem like Christmas has snuck up on us once again, we do still have plenty of time to make a plan of action.

This week to my disappointment, I managed to gain half a pound and I did not understand how or why. Sure I had a big day/night out the previous Saturday, but I had 100% stuck to my 30 smartpoints every other day, and with the Mo Run and the upcoming Run In The Dark, I have upped my running quite drastically so I had clocked up loads of activity points. Since heading back to class I have lost a grand total of 2lbs, in 5 weeks and I am still 5lbs above goal.

Last week with the bank holiday was a bit of a struggle, but I felt like I stayed on track. I used up all my weeklies and a few fit points but I tracked everything so I felt like I deserved a loss. Despite that all week I knew I was retaining water, I just felt heavy. So it was no surprise when my leader told me that there was no movement on the scales this week. I was disappointed but not at all surprised and sure at least it wasn't a gain. So I am still 4.5 lbs above goal and the weeks are disappearing, there are only 7 more weigh ins until Christmas. That is plenty of time to lose the 4.5lbs but I would like to lose a few more to give me a little bit of a buffer to gain a couple of Christmas if that's what happens.
