Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I had a blast hanging out with family; plus, the food was great too!
I did well on Thanksgiving. I got up early, worked out, drank my water, and stuck to eating until full (not too full!). So, my first Thanksgiving on this journey went well. I wish, though, that I could say that the rest of the weekend went that way too. Black Friday shopping (all night and into the wee hours of the morning) messed me up. It's always a tradition for my family to get some caffeine (soda) and go wait in the lines for great deals. However, I did not realize that I needed a plan. No sleep, dehydrated (I took water, but I lost it in the car somewhere), and tradition brought me down. I ended up eating a full meal at midnight. I knew I didn't need it, but I ate it anyways. Due to that, I allowed myself to go downhill the rest of the weekend - splurging, eating crap, no water, and no exercise. This has led to a 3 pound gain. (I did manage to NOT drink a soda although I was craving it!)
This weekend is now in the past, and it's up to me to either choose to get back on track or allow my habits to continue. I've decided to get back on track, but I am not sure if I just want to maintain or continue trying to lose weight. Today will be a day of not only water, healthy eats, and exercise but also working on a new plan for the next four weeks until Christmas.
How did your Thanksgiving go? What are your plans for the next 4 weeks?
