Poundage over the Holidays

Friday, December 28, 2012

I don't know about anyone else but yes, I did gain some weight over the Holidays.
I told myself I deserved to take a break.
I did keep most things in mind like one pc of bread not two.
No thank you to butter.
One serving only.
Oh, one cookie won't hurt.
My that Texas Sheet cake looks good. I'll just have one of those also.
Just one mind you.
oh that carmel frozen yogurt goes with the Texas sheet cake. Just one scoop.
A person really doesn't think it adds up but it does and it did.
Of course all the sodium didn't help matters at all.
I did however jump right back on the healthy diet the second everyone left to visit the other side of the family.
I walked and swam and ate green. It's taken 5 days of being "SUPER GOOD" to get back down to where I was before the, "I deserve this".
Well I don't pretend to know the answer. I was looking forward to a break.
No one twisted my arm.
Do I regret it now? Why Yes when I'm having to do all this walking and swimming. But would I do it again? Probably cause it was Christmas time and that's how we are programmed I guess.
Like I say...I don't know.
So I am grateful that I can start the new year off at the same weight I was before the Holidays. It could be worse. But no sense beating yourself up right. It's lets go forward.
We have a wedding reception to go to tomorrow. I have a plan which is to bring a veggie lunch bucket with me. The wedding reception is for a young couple and won't be super fancy as neither family can afford that. He's in our military and is home on leave. Picking up his girlfriend, now wife as of today. So that's my my own veggies and stay away from the food tables all together as I know I won't win if I go near them. Maybe I should be stronger when it comes to food choices by now outside of the home. But well...I'm not but I am grateful that I finally figured out how to keep myself in line even if avoiding the table only makes sense to me. LOL
I'll let you know how I did on Sunday.
Hugs to you all.

    At least we know how to get back on the horse and pick back up. AND we already have the tools in place to get back on track. I'm like you, gonna let this weekend with my family slide by with discretionary eating without denying myself. Then back to sparking with purpose!
You'll be just fine in a week or two and back to your healthy self - focused and determined!

    THANK GOD I didn't HAVE those luxuries! My Christmas dinner was HOMEMADE Crockpot Roasted Chicken with Red Potatoes, onions & carrots! But, what HURT me to gain 1#, was eating too much of even a *Healthy* meal...and NOT being able to walk it OFF because of the weather conditions NOT working with my mobility issues!
