2013.1 a mini success to start

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Today I had a house full of unexpected guests at lunchtime. My rather impromptu plan was to lay out all the remaining goodies after lunch and let the masses consume what they wanted and dispose of the rest.
It worked really well, right up to the point where I found myself with a forkful of key lime pie at my lips! But, I remembered just in time, removed the offending fork, and simply pushed the fork, and the plate away. It actually felt good to have that little victory under my belt to start this challenge.
After lunch I packed up all the leftovers of goodies and sent them off to my sister's children, or tossed them into the trash.
I am now officially clear of holiday junk food, and ready to focus on my healthy lifestyle again.
I've tracked my food intake today, and stayed just within my nutritional guidelines.
I can count day 1, of this 21-day challenge as a success!
Thanks for the support Friends . emoticon

    I am so proud of you!!!! I actually left the house and shopped with my Christmas gift cards because I wanted to eat!

    We do still have food left but the bad (good) stuff is gone. I made my desserts (key lime pie and peanut butter pie) in the shooter glasses. It was a great way to get what I wanted with (small) portion control.

    I didn't do as well as you - - went over my calories, but did get in my exercise.

    Good luck to all of us!
