Holiday Gains (again...)
Tuesday, December 25, 2012
Once again, I've overdone it on a holiday. I thought I would have the will power to abstain from tasting all of the delicious treats that my mom and I were baking to give away as gifts, but I just couldn't resist. I'm up 3.4 pounds which means I won't reach my NYE goal of 120lbs. I guess now I'm just aiming to be under 125lbs for the New Year, which isn't terrible, but it does mean that I failed at fulfilling my original goal. More of a disappointment than anything.
I'm ready to get back on track today. There will be no big holiday party due to unforeseeable family events, plus I'm working this afternoon (which would have allowed me to be absent from the feast anyway), so that's one more temptation I don't have to wave in front of my face. There will probably be various baked goods and candies at work, but I'll be able to turn those down since I'll probably be running around like crazy and so stressed out that I won't even have time to think about eating. Work has that effect on me lately. I'll still bring some Greek yogurt and fruit with me just in case, and maybe a protein bar. Lots of water, of course. There probably won't be a workout today (the gym is closed), unless I can fit in an Insanity session. I'll see how it goes.
