Well, the holidays got me. It started at Thanksgiving when my parents visited. Keeping busy with showing them around and interacting with the family gave me the perfect excuse to not work out. And it just went downhill from there. I gained back the 5 pounds I had lost between then and after the New Year. So, here I am... starting over once again.
A good friend of my started a goal of 100 Days of Fitness. I decided to join her, so I have completed Day 3! I know what my hard time is going to be: the weekend. I've been really good since getting off my holiday vacation at going in to the gym at 0600, before work. It's getting myself to do something on the weekend that will be difficult. Plus, we are going to DisneyLand at the end of the month. Now, I figure walking around the park will count for the three days we have park passes, but I'll have to work hard to come up with my fitness for the other days of the vacation. I also plan on signing up for a Run or Dye 5K in February and am looking forward to that. I hear they are a lot of fun.
I did as for and get a FITBIT FLEX for Christmas, so I'm really excited about that. I'm not sure how accurate the steps are - I have to wear it on my dominant hand and even though I've set that in the settings, I can still see my steps going up when I'm not really going anywhere. Still, I enjoy tracking my step goals and I have it integrated with SparkPeople, so it is just another tool for me to use and have fun with. :-)
So, bottom line, I will not beat myself up on the holidays, and will go from here. 100 Days of Fitness - here I come! :-)
