It has always been a fact.
Holiday season means extra pounds, right? 😉
With all the ‘get-togethers’ and Christmas parties scheduled around this season, it becomes a challenge for me to keep up with healthy eating. Towards the end of December, I became slack with my exercise skipping for couple of days.
I knew that I was gaining back my old weight. I felt bloated and heavy all the time. I promised to be back on track after New Year’s day.
When I weighed in last 2nd January, my suspicion was confirmed. I gained 2 kilos. It was expected but the numbers in the weighing scale got me worried and scared.
I weighed 70.4kg on 2nd of January. 😞
For the last 2-3 months, my weight was between 77 to 78 kilos only. As long as I was below 70kg, I was fine with it. But when I hit 70.4kg, I got worried, really worried. If this habit continues, I will be back to my old self soon. I don’t want to be 83 kilos again. Not at all.
With some family time in first few days in January, I didn’t manage to really keep up the ‘healthy living speed’ that I wish to be in. Though I slowly stopped eating oily, dairy-rich and meaty meals.
Since 4th January, I am more back to my track and to my surprise, when I weighed today morning, I am 3kgs lighter. I weighed 66.7 kilos. Whew! 😌
I was so glad with the result. Really glad. 😌
I started eating fruits only for dinner. I have really proven this many times. Light stomach in the evening means shedding off more weight. Well, at least for me this method works.
I also created a simple, less complicated, goal for 2018. I hope that I will be able to keep 100% whole food plant based diet for the rest of the year.
And oh, did I share to you that I posted this goal everywhere in my home? Just to make sure that I have enough reminders. 😉
What about you, what’s your goal this year?
Happy New Year & Cheers! 🥂
