Sooooo, basically I took the week off. I didn't exactly plan on it but one thing led to another and I finally decided to simply enjoy the holiday with my family and not stress so much about when I was going to be able to track my food or make it to the gym. We all spent Christmas week at my Mom's so that meant that my sister(home from college), my fiance & myself and my grandparents along with my parents, three dogs and three cats... shew. It was definitely a Christmas that I will never forget, I loved sitting around the tree talking about wedding plans and just the future in general. I am so lucky and blessed to still have my grandparents around and honestly felt really guilty leaving them alone at the house. We all work in healthcare so some of us still had to work at some points so when I didn't work I just didn't feel right not being home with them.The whole point in them visiting is to spend time with us right? I'm not dumb and know that I won't have them around forever, so lately I've started cherishing the time I do have more.
So saturday morning I let them talk me out of going to body pump in the morning so we could finish up baking cookies, sunday I let my fiance talk me in to going out to watch the football game, monday (xmas eve) I worked for a bit and found out the gym was already closed because it was snowing, tuesday was obviously the holiday, wednesday it snowed again and was our huge family party so didn't make it to the gym save 2 days at the beginning of the week.
I could cry about it, but instead I chose to forget about it. It was one week, it was a holiday and I never once felt guilty the entire week that I wasn't "on track". I didn't count calories or work out so I didn't bother to even weigh myself. I didn't overindulge, I didn't binge; I enjoyed my fair share of goodies and treats but never made myself sick over them. So Week 9 for me started Thursday and I'm back in it, I've made all my scheduled workouts and have to enter my food in today. Spark on sparklers!
I'll be back with a full-on week 9 summary in the new year! Eep!
