Where did December go?

Monday, December 19, 2011

I've pretty much coasted through the month of December with very little exercise and some poor eating choices. Luckily I've maintained my weight.

On top of all the Christmas Mayhem there's been a lot of sickness floating through my house. Started with a few weeks of sinus problems, I got pink eye, and then the dreaded stomach flu swept through the house taking out the grown ups in one swoop and then getting to our daycare kids. :( That reminds me that we're almost out of bleach and Lysol!

Everyone is feeling much better *knocks on wood!*

I'd say it's time to get back on track so I've made a few goals for the rest of the year:

Exercise for at least 30 mins every day.

Plan my day's meals ahead of time.

Don't get distracted by holiday sweets. Only have a treat if I've budgeted for it.

Limit the wine on Christmas eve and New years (not that I'm a lush but I'm usually offered a glass or two and then am ready for bed by 6.)

Start my day with a prayer and a smile and end on the same note.

I wanted to set a weight goal but I think it's better if I just do my best and see what happens. I had to quit an end of the year challenge because I just couldn't keep up. My "everything has to be done perfectly or you're a failure" side was starting to rear it's ugly head.

Just for the fun of it:

    I know the perfectionist side of life... sounds like you've got a good plan in place! Thanks for the smiles.

  Quoting your "My "everything has to be done perfectly or you're a failure" side was starting to rear it's ugly head", I know how you feel. I get that way with everything I do and it's sooo hard to just give in. But over the years I've learned to accept what I can and can't do and live with it. But I don't like it. Hope you get everything accomplished. And if you haven't already, join the next challenge. It'll be fun!
