Here I've been at it for over two years...really committed to this new and healthy lifestyle...and BAM! Some serious backsliding over the past week!
My DW wanted to make some holiday goodies...and needed my help. I've done this before, no problem...right?
Not this time!
For most of Christmas week I allowed myself far too many goodies...the cookie monster was on the loose again!
One GOOD thing about this was that I ramped up my workouts which had been lackluster going into the season. Problem is I was driven by guilt and magical thinking...if I work out harder that will cancel out my transgressions...right? Of course I *know* better in my head, but emotional thinking is something else altogether...!
So I'm back in the saddle and have resolved to stick with my healthy eating through the New Year's celebrations! We're having a get together tomorrow night to celebrate First Night and I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone.
After that? How to SHINE in 2009...? :-)
1) Re-group and move forward from my Christmas slide...and FINALLY during 2009 cross into the wonderful land of ONE-ville!
2) De-Junk our storage room, into which I've moved my treadmill. I will make this my *haven* and craft and carve this room into one which moves and inspires me!
3) I will bike the 34-mile Kal-Haven trail either with or without (hopefully WITH!) my son this spring.
4) I WILL get out there and give cross country skiing the good old college try so I can find out if I have yet one more viable way to love getting out and MOVING and soaking up and being INSPIRED by Mother Nature!
Whoa...set up quite the agenda for myself...! :-)
I'd add a #5 if anyone wants to buy it for me...I would LOVE to get out on an ELLIPTIGO...lol!

Looks like such FUN!
Off I go...probably won't be around much tomorrow through the New Year...have a super, safe and healthy celebration everyone...see you next year! :-)
Made it through New Year's Eve without touching a SINGLE goodie! It was a struggle, and I know I ate more of the OTHER, healthier stuff, but yet calories count... Still felt good to know how vulnerable I was and batten the hatches down but GOOD!
