My sister decided to host Thanksgiving in her new home yesterday - what a great time I had! Family visits when we are now all in our sixties (I arrived at 60 the day before) brought out some awesome childhood memories. We laughed and giggled - a lot!
... and food - I forgot to mention FOOD!
I came, I saw, I ate! I was stuffed more than the turkey, lol.
One pound. ONE pound! OMG! It was soooo worth it!!
I started with dessert and I ended with dessert - I can't even figure out how to log it all!
Today, back on track! Was it worth it? Yes, it was worth it to me. I planned for this and I decided that whatever the scale said today, I was not going to weigh and measure everything that went onto my plate and into my mouth.
I worked hard to get to where I am and being able to enjoy one day here and there must also fit into my program or I will not be happy and feel complete.
I refuse to be bound to "healthy living" if it means never being able to enjoy at least a taste of what someone has labored to create.
Bragging on my sisters creations brought her so much joy! She does cook and bake healthier than most people - this does not make anything "calorie-free".
I hope everyone in SparkLand had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday - and everyday.
**it's time to put the rest of my birthday candy into the freezer - and not into my mouth!
There are 113 openings left in the Winter 5% Challenge. Please sign up now if you want to be included in the Winter Challenge.
This is your invitation to the Winter Challenge. The 5% challenge is an 8 week challenge where we strive to lose 5% of our own weight.
This team is different from other teams, we are an ACTIVE team. You must commit to being ACTIVE in posting points to the Living the Good Life weekly challenges, exercise minutes and doing Weekly Weigh Ins. Weekly weigh ins are Saturday and if you are away, please record your weight before you go.
I think this works because it only runs for about 8 weeks and you don't lose interest in 8 weeks.
I learned my body seems to be really happy right where it is, lol.
I am learning to trust my inner being with the munchies.
I am learning that 120.0 and 120.9 are both still 120!
I am learning that a little leeway is ok but too much is not ok.
Now I'm learning to differentiate between the two.
Anyone wanting to join the Winter 5% Challenge, let me know and I will invite you when the time comes.
