Christmas with my family was wonderful! My two oldest sons traveled to come home which made it more special for our teenage son and my husband and I. Sorry our daughters, their husbands and our only two grandchildren couldn't be here, but we understand!
I was afraid about losing control yesterday with food. I had decided to loosen the reigns that I have on what I eat and did go over my usual. I had a sugar cookie that my daughter in law made, but told myself to leave some of it. I was able to do that. I am going to keep doing that when I allow myself a treat as I see it as an exercise in self control.
It wasn't fun to weigh myself this morning and see that I was up 1-2 pounds from earlier this week! Yet, I am thrilled with my deep desire to go workout today! A year ago, a weight gain would have been so depressing that I couldn't work out! What a difference Spark People has made in my life. (saving that for a different blog)
I earnestly pray for my fellow sparkies that we would be able to enjoy the special things in this holiday season including special foods, but that we would do so in MODERATION and that we would keep exercising to help our bodies and our minds stay focused on our goals.
Have a great weekend!
