It’s October 13th. Last night I ate sausage and drank beer our of a stein. Why? IT’S OCTOBER DUMMIES !! Pretzels and apple strudel were also on the menu and this is the damn problem. At this rate we will all be up 6 pounds by Thanksgiving.
Let’s face it, the leaves change in the Northeast, we all say f#$k it … let’s eat and not go the dumb gym!! For the past few years I have gained about 6 pounds between Halloween and the Superbowl. NOT THIS YEAR PEOPLE !!
I have already gone to the dumb gym a few times this week (see above) and I have opted out of the pizza in the newsroom and eaten a healthy lunch 5 DAYS IN FREAKIN ROW. I don’t think we all have to be ‘bikini strict’ about this , but, there are some things we can do.
1. SAY YES TO THE PARTY !!
When you have stuff to do … wearing Halloween costumes or NYE cocktail dresses (yes you too guys) you want to look and feel your best !! I am going to let my social plans motivate my diet strategy this Fall.
2. Let the people around you know you are trying to be ” be good”
My main workout Coach/ friend/motivator is Holly … above… You might have noticed she is EXPECTING A BABY soon. Does she eat pizza every night ? Sadly no because I then I would have an excuse. Holly knows I am trying something new this season and while she is preparing for baby #2 she is eating healthy & sending me emojis and other fun texts. If a pregnant lady can eat well during the fall-o-days then I can too.
We all have kids to drive around … work that drives us crazy and friends we want to drink beer with !! You can do it all. When you do … take a minute to notice. I slipped in a workout earlier this week when I had to be in 3 places at once. I took this selfie to remind myself that I got it in.
BOTTOM LINE: we can do this !! It won’t be super easy, but, it won’t be super hard if we all stay consistent. Like I tell my kids ( who never listen)
A LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA GOES A LONG LONG WAY !!
I’M HEADED TO THE STUPID DUMB GYM TODAY … what are you doing to survive the ‘fall-o-days’
