One holiday down, two to go. The average American gains 1-2 pounds during the holidays, I’m happy to report that I lost .6 lbs during Thanksgiving week! The hardest thing to do is make yourself get on the scale after a holiday week, but it must be done! Getting on the scale once a week keeps you in check and lets you know if you need to make any adjustments to your program.
If I’m being honest the only thing that saved me from gaining weight this week was working out every days. I worked out hard too, getting my heart rate up and making sure that I got my “sweat-on”. Today I’m back to writing down everything that I eat and eating smaller portions. Goal is to lose at least 1 lb this week.
