Did I say I was gonna to try to lose weight before Christmas? Um, I'm pretty sure this is the wrong time of the year to start a weight loss crusade. I'm up to my eye balls in sweets. But after Christmas you can be dang sure I'm gonna lose some weight. Mark my words. Mark 'em. Now. (I'm a little hyper right now.)

Is anyone out there...out there...out there...?

That's me echoing if you couldn't tell. So here's an update:

I haven't been eating as conscientiously as I was last month, but luckily, I have pretty much maintained my weight loss. Within a pound or so. But I really want to lose a few more pounds by Christmas, so I'm going to get really strict again and my goal is to lose 5 - 6 pounds by Christmas. Let's see if I can do it. My plan is to do the same thing as I was doing (counting calories and eating clean-ish), but I will also definitely be working out. I need to get back to the gym.

So my plan is to run and do weight training 4 days a week. I will take before and after pictures too. That's always good motivation.

Wish me luck.

P.S. Are you wondering about the half-marathon? Well, we didn't go to Seattle for Thanksgiving, which was when we were going to do it, and I pretty much stopped running once it got freezing and snowy, so I wasn't ready anyway. So... the half-marathon will have to happen in the spring. There will be a race here in May, so that is my new goal. I will do a half-marathon at some point. Don't you worry about that.
