Well, I can't say that I've been very mindful about my eating for the past three days. I didn't stick to my plan to track things ahead of time and I went a little overboard on Christmas Eve. Once again I felt so awful that I could hardly sleep. I'm not sure if it was the food or the vodka cranberry drinks (I had two of them), but as soon as it was time for bed I felt like I had a terrible hangover and couldn't get to sleep because I was overwhelmed by the sound of my thumping heart and angry arteries!
I thought I was doing well on Christmas Day...until I tracked everything. I treated myself to three little chocolates thinking that those would be my big indulgence but it was the fizzy juice soft drinks and Tofurky with gravy and the buttery roasted potatoes that pushed me way over the edge. Then on Boxing Day I did really well until supper time. I was starving and ate a huge plate of Tofurky leftovers. I did however, stay away from the potatoes last night. Small victories, right?
The worst thing is that it has been about -25 degrees celsius here (that's about -13F) so it's still too cold to take my son out in his stroller. We've been cooped up in the house for days and my toddler has lost his patience with me doing workout videos in front of the tv. I'm going to try to do a bit of a mall walk with the stroller today as long as it's not too busy with crazed Boxing Day shoppers!
My weight this morning is up 3 pounds. I'm sure some of it is from all of the extra salt so I'm going to try to be extra vigilant about my water intake today and see if I can convince my little guy to do some dancing with me.
My New Year's Eve goal doesn't feel like it's within reach anymore but I'm going to get as close as I can!
