Maintain dont gain! That's the name of the "challenged" I signed up for at the Y. It's centered over the Holidays. We weigh in next week and then weigh in again the first week of January. I think everyone gets a T shirt and a certificate (LOL), but the top three "maintainers" get special prizes. What if, just what if I make the top 3???!!!! I'm so competitive, I need this. :) Last year I did so well Thanksgiving and Christmas. I was motivated because I was still focused on goal. Now that I'm at goal (well, maybe 2 lbs over), I need a new focus. So, instead of thinking and thinking and thinking about it, I decided to be proactive and create a goal! I love challenges. So, wish me luck!!

I'm still fighting a cold that seems to be lingering. The cold medicine I took last night was divine. I got the best night's sleep I"e had in a while. I'm the type of person that would stay up until 1am every night just because I savor alone time. I could be down right exhausted and still not be able to go to bed early. Last night I went to bed at 9pm and slept until 8am!! Ah.....

Then I hit the ground running. The Step class I've been wanting to take (the easier one, not the same one as last night) was at 9:30am so I had to get the kids dressed, fed and out the door quickly. We made it there and halfway through the warm up I realized I had not had anything to eat or drink yet. I felt my tummy rumble the whole time, but finished. Stupid, stupid! My poor body was shaking by the time the class was over. I grabbed the kids and we went to Starbucks for my usual mocha and this time a reduced fat coffee cake. Don't let the "reduced fat" fool you- it's stil 7 pts! THEN we head over to the church for mom's group. The kids played and I sat and chatted with my friends.

Now I'm home and both kids are napping. I can't remember when the last time both kids slept at the same time.....

Here's my tracker:

Workout: Step: + 4pts

Mocha 3 pts
Coffee Cake 7pts

Hummus: 1 pt
Blue Corn chips: 3 pts
100 cookies: 2 pts

16 pts used, 4 pts earned. 8 pts left for dinner. We'll probably have leftovers. I requested that my husband and I sit on our butts and watch a movie together tonight. Maybe we'll feed the kids the leftovers and order chinese or something after they go to bed. Hot and Sour Soup and sushi is only 6 pts! We'll see......
