The week after Thanksgiving, that's when. Especially when it was followed by the Second Thanksgiving Crowd and the Third Thanksgiving Crowd. Eventually you've polished off the leftovers and after a while the kitchen looks like it did on November the 21st.
My weigh-in day is Thursday and I was rather pleased that there had been no weight gain. This long after the most egregious eating day means I can relax about any lurking holiday calories "weight-ing" to make themselves felt. I am not surprised that there was no movement in either direction because though there were many opportunities to indulge, I tried hard to listen to my body and eat only when hungry, stop between (several) bites and ask if I was still hungry, and stop when I was no longer hungry. In short, though I did eat pie, and even cake, and kettle corn, I ate them deliberately, not mindlessly, and in moderation.
I count this a successful week and am proud about it.
In the coming weeks, though, I want to do better. I began tracking my intake on Monday and I go back to the gym today. I have a 3 pound goal I want to reach before January 1. I believe I can do it!
Happy Friday Eve to you all.
