We had a wonderful Christmas! On Christmas Eve, we all went to dinner. Lots of laughs and fun. We were home fairly early. Christmas day I did cooking for "our Christmas" on the 26th. I finally finished up and we headed to daughter's to check out what Santa brought the kids. They were all very tired; still in jammies; house a wreck----you know, typical Christmas with little ones. We stayed for dinner; helped clean up a bit and headed home. Nice, quiet day. They all began arriving around 10 am on the 26th. I had some "traditional" breakfast goodies. Eventually, we began to open presents. Lots of surprises and laughs. What a great time! The little ones, of course, had a blast and loved everything they got. Gosh, kids make it such a fun day!! Soup, bread, cheese ball, and desserts. YUM!! And, I was tired!!!
I have weighed and measured myself. I have lost about a half pound; lost 1/4 inch off hips, added almost an inch to my thighs. What the heck?????? I have been "careful" with my eating but not tracking. We had very few (i.e., no) goodies laying around and at end of 26th I sent home almost everything with the kids. So that was not a temptation. It was non-routine eating though. I did no exercise the entire week. I am beginning to feel that, for sure. Feeling fat and tired. Back at it tomorrow. I finished putting away decorations and cleaned house, did laundry today. YAY!
I'm not feeling that usual January 1 excitement about exercise and food. In the past, I am full of enthusiasm and excitement about making new committments. This year I feel more solid, more dedicated to my program. Does that make any sense? I miss that excited feeling but I think this may be more realistic. I ordered some more warm walking clothes. I've done Leslie Sansone for years but just prefer to be outside. I feel better when I'm done. So I'm trying to make that decision to push my tush out the door. I don't like the wind but the cold is OK. My hero is NORAS_PAT who walks in the northeast no matter what the weather!!! I can do that!!!
I am looking forward to 2013. New grandbaby in February and new daughter in law in July! How exciting!!
I hope all of you have a wonderful, blessed 2013!!
