Thanksgiving and Christmas have now passed. I wish I could say that I stayed on task with my plan not to binge too much on those days and every day in between them. Not so much. It's been a bad few weeks, diet and exercise wise. I feel like I'm in detox mode now, I haven't eaten much aside from junk the last few weeks, and haven't drank much, if any, water. I even gained a few pounds back, although I haven't seen a huge difference in the fit of my clothes. I'm probably going to have to readjust my weight loss goal, but it's not a huge deal. At first, and while I was engaging in said binging, I felt really angry with myself. But now, it's done, it's probably going to happen again, just not on such a large scale as those "eating-holidays". Maybe a day here or there it will happen, but now that the holidays are behind us, I can put more focus into my fitness goals. The past few days, I have been looking forward to getting back into healthy habits and feeling better about myself. So far, so good on the dietary part. Wouldn't you know, though, that I woke up this morning with the whole stuffy-nose, pressure-in-face-and-head crud and just feel entirely like crap. However, even though I'm not going to the gym until Friday, I still plan on getting up and moving somewhat today and tomorrow. In fact, we gave our kids the Xbox with Kinect for Christmas. I haven't gotten to play with it all that much yet, but it really gets you up and moving! So I'm gonna play around with that today and tomorrow and if nothing else get an hour or so of Just Dance in. It's hard not feeling like I'm right back where I started, but I'm really not. I'm still at least 15 pounds less than where I started the first time, and I'm not giving up. A new year is about to begin, and I'm getting ready to start school again. I'm just 18 short months away from being an RN! It's a brand new day, and I'm going to set some brand new goals (like blogging more often). Something a friend of mine wrote on her facebook today: "You don't fail until you quit". So I'm gonna get back up, brush myself off and push forward!!
