My update for the Hot 100 Challenge:
1. Lose 15-plus pounds by the end of the year / end of the challenge. I missed my weigh-in yesterday, as explained in my last post, but I am still down according to my scales. Not going to count it until it's on my "official" WW scales though. But I'm on track to make my 15 pounds during the challenge, for a total of at least 30 total by the end of the year!
2. Get more sleep. After a comment from Dr. Fatty Finds Fitness on my last Hot 100 update, I really see the value of sleep and am determined to do better. So every night (except last night), I've gotten to bed earlier. I'd still like to get to bed even 30 minutes earlier each night, and I'll get there. Feeling better already. Thanks, Dr. F!
3. Start taking vitamins. I continue to choke down a fistful of supplements daily, including a couple for my joints.
4. Make a plan for eating and exercising over the holidays and stick to it. Still have not purchased Halloween candy for the trick-or-treaters. Planning to wait until the last minute and then to purchase candy I don't like (if such a candy exists). Or I might just forgo candy altogether in lieu of these other treats I've gotten. So far I'm stocking up on spider rings, scary pencils, orange and black bracelets, and mini-size Play-Doh to give out. Better for the kiddos too, right?
Don't get weak now, Hotties! We're just now starting up that hill of holiday temptations, so now is the time to pick it up!
