Vacation/Holiday weight gain
Thursday, January 05, 2012
I gained 15lbs in December!
Yes you heard me right 15lbs in one month.
I did not even know it was possible to gain that much weight in one month. I gained 11lbs from my cruise and the other 4lbs from the holidays.
On the plus side I did have a WONDERFUL vacation!!!
I did stay active for the most part. I took a yoga class on the ship and I did a bunch of excursions on the islands. I went zip lining and kayaking for the first time which was a blast. I also went snorkeling and four wheeling. I guess the 11lbs came from all the yummy food I ate.
I also had a great holiday!
I got to spend lots of time with my family and once again ate lots of yummy food.
So as of the new year it's time to get back on track! I was already to go and came down with a stomach bug.
I did lose 4lbs the past two days, but that was due from not being able to eat and when I did not being able to keep it down. I'm feeling much better today and I'm ready to go! I brought my healthy food with me to work and have my gym bag packed for after work!
I was not going to blog about my weight gain. I was pretty embarrassed about gaining 15lbs. in one month. And then I got to thinking this is what Sparkpeople is all about. Helping each other through our ups and down. I always blog about the ups but not so much about the downs. The important part is that I know I will pick myself back up again and get back on track.
So last month was not a healthy one, and the new year started off a little rocky from being sick, but not it's time to get my butt in gear!
I'm ready to do this!!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and is enjoying the new year!!!
