I think my Tough Chik teammate Jess said it perfectly on her blog Run with Jess, when talking about Holiday weight gain...
"Every year, it starts with Halloween... the slow re-entry of candy into our house (and my belly). Then comes Thanksgiving with the big heavy meals and relaxing drinks (oh' sweet Baileys and Pumpkin Pie Liqueur...) Finally, the nearly month long Christmas... sweet treats everywhere you go, endless social gatherings and reduced exercise time. What was your net holiday gain? All the holiday joy made made my heart swell. Unfortunately, so did my tummy..."
Too. much. sugar.
I had been doing so well with Jillian! I'd lost inches and pounds, but now I feel like a bloated puffball. That is why I'm joining her challenge.
I'm going to put my money where my mouth is. $10 in the pot to lose 4% of my body weight. If I do all 3 rounds, that could be 12% gone! Maybe money on the line is just what I need to stay focused!
