Exercised Sat and Sun and stayed w/in my calories!!! I feel pretty good both physically and mentally. A little apprehensive about Thanksgiving..but I do have a plan - I will stay w/in my caloric intake everyday , except on Thursday and I will go to my exercise class on Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri and Sat.Thanksgiving day , I plan on walking 6 miles and since I am cooking I plan on making a lot of healthy subsitutions in the food prep! I definitely plan on having canidied yams and dessert but I will not eat to the point of being stuffed. AND I will weigh-in on Wed 11/21 - and again on 11/28. No stepping on the scale after turkery day - no need to get depressed over a temporary weight gain.
It feels soooo good being able to have some control - usually by now I would have startedmy annual downward spiral towards gaining weight - I start would start the week before Halloween eating 5 bags of Reese's and continuing to New Year's - by that time I would be depressed , fatter and lethargic. Not the case this yr - I feel darned healthy and in control. Yeah me ! 52 is rockin' for me
