I survived. Actually I prospered!!! I ran the Christmas gauntlet and lost exactly four pounds over the past week. I could write ten thousand words on how I navigated holiday treats and the like, but I wont bore you. I got on the scale, did a mild to moderate happy dance and walked downstairs to face a new day.
Then it dawned on me: The evil, ugly Christmas eating deluge was over. I survived but from whence comes my motivation now? It suddenly seemed as desolate and cold as my back yard. Yikes.
Two weeks ago I would have panicked. I would have sought out the nearest donut shop and poured my heart out to a baker while I inhaled three or four donuts. ( I once drove three hours one way to get some primo donuts!!!) I'll admit I was a bit edgy. Then I logged in. I read some blogs, got some motivation and realized that I was suffering from a bit of a holiday hangover. I had invested so much energy in "being good" over Christmas that I didn't see the larger picture. Thanks good spark friends!!!
I realize its only half over that we still have another week to go, but at least my focus is back. Thanks again.
