Well the holidays are finally done. It was just one calorie fest from Thanksgiving to New Years. I didn't do too bad I gain about 5 pounds. The worst thing is the lost time. I'm a bit behind on my timeline about 10 pounds behind. But I'm not too worried. I'm actually looking forward to getting back to my schedule and having the scale go down again. I know it works when I'm on plan so that's a bit comforting. The other smaller holidays like Valentine's day and Easter etc... don't really effect me or set me back as much as Christmas and Thanksgiving. Those holidays are more surrounded by the food. In the past the holiday binge would last for months so getting on track this fast is new for me. In hindsight when I look back on the things I ate during the holidays that were "bad" I really didn't crave anything, it was more of just mindless eating, more of a habit of what I had always done during the holidays. I would just see the candy or the cookies out and eat them, not really thinking about it. It's encouraging to be making those connections. Set backs can be learning experiences.
