....but in a rush of self pity it feels like it. So I have been away from Sparkpeople for a couple of weeks. Week 1 I spent in UK where I had a very happy sociable time, vowing to do better the following week, but on my last day went down with a horrible cold and didnt feel like doing anything for a few days. I ate too much! So week 3 and I went skiing. Now that should have been enough to keep up my resolve but surrounded by friends again it all went pear shaped and yes I admit it, I ate lunches up the mountain and a hearty dinner thinking that because I was skiing in the cold I would be burning more than enough calories to compensate.
Well moment of truth this morning and stepping on the scales I see that I gained back just over a kilo. Felt so miserable. So now in the interest of accountability if only to myself, I own up... I had 2 glasses of mulled wine almost every afternoon. I ate dessert at lunch and at dinner. I had french fries more than once. I did not drink enough water (alcoholic drinks were flowing well though)
I did it, mea culpa, its all my own fault. So armed with this I am back on track. Determined to undo the bad and have walked for 80 minutes - 5.75 km and burned off a load of calories. I do feel better for doing something - it could so easily have gone the other way and I could have made a dash for the chocolate shop.
