Well, today is weigh in day. I am an addict and I haven't weighed in since Thursday morning (which is amazing for me) and I do not plan to weigh again (after my 3 or 4 times today.... I mean it IS weigh in day) until maybe Wednesday (it's called babysteps).
There is a big story behind this weigh in. And it's MY blog, so I'm gonna tell it! Sunday morning I weighed in at 175.0. Monday was 175.6. But I started exercising again on Monday. So I was happy to see on Tuesday I was 174.8. Of course, since I am an addict, I weighed myself later that morning after a good workout and was 173.6. I was really happy with that because that was what was on my ticker and I didn't have to feel guilty about not recording any of the weight gain I had. Then came Wednesday: 174.2. I was disappointed, but I figured that maybe the lower number the day before was not a true reflection. I mean, I HAD just worked out and sweat a lot of water weight away, right? But when I weighed Thursday and was 176.8 I was appalled! Now I could make excuses and say I had eaten foods high in sodium (and very gassy) the night before-- which I had-- but it was still devastating.
Well... today I weigh 173.8! So there, that's my story. Kind of anti-climatic, I admit. Thanks for listening. Yeah me!

It is hard to do well when you are away from your own kitchen and surrounded by temptation. I know I am not alone in this, but this Christmas season seemed so much busier (and heavier) than before. I literally spent every evening for the last week and a half away from home. But today I recommit. I have already exercised for 40 minutes today. I am beginning to feel like my old "spark" self! No need for resolutions... they never last. I always take them like suggestions. This is my life. I am recommitting to exercise and eat right. This time, my husband is joining the bandwagon. 155 here I am come! And (wink, wink) I won't stop there!

This is a wonderful and joyous season, full of faith, family, friends... and FOOD! My prayer is to be able to get through the next two weeks (which for me includes Christmas, my son's birthday, and my anniversary!) with no damage. I have made it this far and I don't intend to lose ground. My prayer is also for my sparkpals to have a happy holiday! I am sending skinny thoughts to you all! Together, we'll get through this busy season and continue our journey to healthiness! Merry Christmas!

My sparkpal and I have a new commitment. We have challenged each other to 210 minutes of exercise, a minimum of 8 glasses a day, sticking to our calorie range, and getting in at least 2 veggies or fruit a day. Sounds so easy. But even a challenge like this requires dedication I haven't had since the school year began. It has been 4 days and I stink at this commitment challenge. Summer Amy had it down pat, work Amy has some revamping to do!
So I am putting it in writing for the world to see, my new dedication: some form of exercise everyday (it has to be 60 minutes to meet my goal with Lisa); water, water, water; and EAT RIGHT! I have to plan ahead (it was so easy this summer) and stay away from the sweets my assistnat brings each day (it is out of love and kindness, she has no idea she is a tool for the devil!). I cannot meet my goal for the end of the year if I continue at the current rate. Check on me in a week, will ya?
