So it is already December. I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year. I don’t have very many nice things to say about this year because it has been an absolute nightmare and I am so ready for things to get back to normal. I know the coronavirus pandemic isn’t going to magically disappear with the end of the year but the hope of a vaccine being available makes me feel like we are going to be on the other side of this soon.
At the beginning of this school year we had made the decision to homeschool our kids this year and over the last few months I have realized that it wasn’t a good fit for our son, who just turned 6. So we decided to enroll him in a private school where we feel he will benefit a lot, while maintaining covid precautions as much as possible. So far, he has done very well and I am so glad we made this decision. I feel so much more at peace knowing that he is getting a good education and the interactions that he needs.
Unfortunately, with all of the stress of the pandemic and my lack of motivation to stay on track, I have gained a lot of the weight back that I had lost over the last several years. So I am basically back to where I was when I started Weight Watchers. I feel really bad about it and I’m disappointed, but I know what I need to do and I have been focused on making sure that I am tracking everything I eat and I am determined to not weigh the same as I did at the end of last year. So my plan for December is to work hard and stay focused. Thanksgiving wasn’t a problem this year because we didn’t have any family gatherings and I’m not sure if we will be able to for Christmas either. So we will just have to wait and see how things go over the next few weeks.
So I have all of my meals planned out for the week and I am determined to stick with my plan. It definitely helps that my husband is on board and is following along with WW as well. So I know that as long as we stay focused, it’s definitely going to be a great week and my weigh in on Saturday will be great!
