Sorry for skipping out on you after completing the Slim in 6 for the Holidays Challenge. Never got in those after pictures. It was crazy around here trying to get ready for Christmas with my family in Ohio. It was the first time we had Christmas BEFORE Christmas so we kind of had to rush everything.
My Slim in 6 for the Holidays Losses
.5 inch off my thighs
2 inches off my chest
2.5 inches off my waist
TOTAL WEIGHT LOST FOR 2013 - 62.8 lbs (as of 12/26)
I came across the Weight Watchers' New Year, New You Challenge yesterday. This 4 week challenge appears to be designed to help you get a jump start on your weight loss goal for 2014. By committing to the challenge you're vowing to look towards the future not the past. There are weekly tasks to help you be healthier and successful in reaching your goal. Tasks are designed to keep you mindful in everything you do and help you navigate your journey. This sounds like a great idea so I signed up as a participant.
Week 1 has two tasks, one immediate and the other long term. The immediate task is to try food that you've never had before, preferably whole foods. Well, I tried almond milk and other lettuces at my grandparents' house during our Christmas and PB2 (love it!) later so I say I'm good for this one.
The long term task is thinking outside the scale. This involves a separate goal that has nothing to do with your weight or clothing size. For me I think it would be to participate in some kind of personal development program. I've been reading books but they're just not clicking for me, not holding my concentration. Perhaps participating in a program with hands-on activity is the key. Now to find these programs that won't cost an arm and a leg...
This new year also marks some changes to the blog. First of all I'm moving my weekly updates to Wednesdays. It just makes more sense to post the day after I've weighed in at Weight Watchers rather than the Sunday night after. #WEIGHINWEDNESDAY
The second change is the introduction of healthy recipes on Tuesdays. Mostly these recipes will be contributed but every once in a while it'll be something I've done (when I felt creative in the kitchen). So what's the best way to do my weekly "call for recipes"? #TASTYTUESDAY Non-recipe guest posts will be on Thursdays.
The third change is in the works. I'm looking at ending Casually Cassi and moving all product reviews here. It's just not getting the interaction and viewership that I thought I'd have. I'm actually not getting more opportunities because of that. Please leave your opinions of this transition in the comments.
