Boxing Day, The Resolution

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Happy Boxing Day (December 26) to those who celebrate that holiday!

Having discerned that there are six days left to the Glorious Year 2014, Queen AmQ of Maintenance Land hath declared Boxing Day a holiday in the realm.

She did hop on down quietly to the Sacred Grotto o' the Golden Scale without the usual imaginary minions & performed a SEMI-OFFICIAL BOXING DAY WEIGH-IN. She noted that she hath semi-officially gained .8 from last Sunday and declared that was cool by her.

She reflected on the year ahead in weight maintenance. Her desire has been to hold the line on food with the weight management focus now being on staying at 117 and she reflected on whether that should be her OFFICIAL NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION.

To the age-old question as to whether weight management is the only thing in her life, she reflected that it was not.

But, she said to herself, "I've been at this weight management game for years, as all who know me have discerned. I've had success, am happy with my losses and been at a healthy weight for a long time

"So sometimes the Holiday Princess of Good Eats & Good Times pokes into my head and asks why I like this sub-120 weight so much when I was fine where I was. This happened yesterday and I told the Princess to be quiet and go away, as there are so many healthy reasons why I like the sub-120s that extra gluten free candy bars and pieces of gluten free pizza just aren't worth scrapping the goal of maintaining this weight into & through 2014 (and beyond but now focusing on 2014)."

Queen AmQ pondered that that there are a whole heckava lot of important things in her life to accomplish in 2014.

But, she said to herself, "I really think healthy weight management is key to my continued well-being and believe I shall settle on that topic in formulating my OFFICIAL NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION!"

Queen AmQ likes New Year's Resolutions and considers them sacred. Just her thing.

So she thought some more and then said to herself, "It is settled, then. I will maintain my SUB-120s status, focusing on but not limited to my favorite number 117 give or take the decimals.

"But sub-120s it is, that's the resolution for 2014 (and really forever but only focusing on 2014."

Queen AmQ reflected that she may or may not stop blogging on here after a while but for now having the resolution and blathering about it is going to be helpful in the maintenance journey.

Resolution. Signed. Sealed. Delivered.

    I wish you well in the maintenance realm. I am currently dealing with some sodium water weight gain. I also have to get back in to my exercising- going back to work has derailed this at the moment. Good luck to you.

    Gosh, I hope you don't stop blogging here. (though, of course, do what's best for you and your minions) I really do enjoy your posts.

[Edited to fix typos that are the result of not checking before posting when on the iPad, which drops characters, and I'm a character, so I should know. Or something. I just woke up. Ignore me. :-)]
