This is a rough time of year for nutrition. I had a Christmas/Birthday/End of the world party on Friday where one friend gave me a box of fudge and another gave me a variety of hot cocoa mixes. I did give away our extra cookies we provided for the party to the children that attended (goodie bags!), but I still have a bunch of sugar in my possession.
I'm also worried about keeping up on my 5k program. The weather is COLD. Colder than I've ever run in before. I'm trying to equip myself for the frigid weather, but I don't have many warm clothes I can workout in. I know I need to conquer my anxiety about going to the icky gym my apartment has and just do my running there, however, I really feel running outside is better for me.
Now, some good things: I did lose a pound today. I'm not going to record it because I feel I just ruined it all with the fudge I ate today. Also, my husband went out with me today on my belated run. Best of all, I feel better about myself. Sure, I didn't eat as well as I could, but I resisted seconds at dinner--knowing I was going to indulge in sugar. I'm getting back into the habit of watching what foods I put in my body. For example, I bought some healthy food on my last Christmas grocery shopping trip tonight.
Things could be better. They could be worse. For the holidays, I think I'm doing pretty good.
