Halfway Through Dynamic December

Okay folks, I know I say this all the time, but how does time pass so quickly? How am I already halfway through my Dynamic December challenge? How is 2011 over in just 15 days? Okay ... I'm back! I thought since we are at the midway point of the challenge that I would let you all know how it is going.

I am feeling great and in control this month. I ended September on such a high note that I was really upset with myself for slacking in October/November. I have lost 4.6 lbs so far this month and am just 0.6 lbs from my lowest, which I hope to hit on Tuesday's weigh-in.

Besides, seeing the results on the scale. I am just feeling healthier overall. I have been working to hit all of my WW Healthy Guidelines every day, as well as getting in at least 30 minutes of activity.

The #back2basics challenge has taken me back to the time when I first joined WW. When the excitement was still there - well it was the honeymoon phase. :) But, I think over time you lose the love sometimes. You can get tired of looking up the points or having to plan food out for the week. Since starting the #back2basics challenge, I have realized how important those little steps are to continued success. I need to take the time for me.

I don't mind decomposing my salad in order to weigh out the chicken or the croutons, etc. I actually feel empowered after doing it.

The #hlgFitGift, #plankaday, #30for60, #30daychallenge, #FT100 & #30daychip components all overlap, which is why I can do six challenges at once. ;) This has helped me put the excuses to the side. I can get up and get to the gym. The challenges hold me accountable to that. I am asking myself to take 30 minutes out of my day for me - that shouldn't be too hard. Right?


How are you doing with your December challenges? Are you ready to go towards 2012 on a healthier note?
