I lost two pounds over the last ten days so I am happy with the beginning of the holiday season. I have been working on running longer stretches and am up to 2/3 mile. Doesn't seem like a lot but considering that I couldn't run a block without being completely out of breath two months ago, I am happy with the progress. I am working on getting more protein in my diet and I think that is helping, too.

Keep up the good work, everyone!! Remember how great you feel when you see that scale number go down, and how disappointed you are when it goes up. That is certainly helping me!!

I agree about most people giving up, Vixen.

my workout strategy is just the opposite of most people: around October I work very hard to get in a good exercise routine. By the time January rolls around and the gym is crowded, exercise is an established habit. I'll find a way to work out: running or walking outside, a DVD at home, going for a bike ride on the weekends, etc. until the resolution crowd disappears.

So far the first holiday of the season did not upset my program at all. I lost 2 pounds over that week and have kept up my routine. I am allowing myself one holiday treat per week and that is leaving me satisfied. It feels great to be going strong at a time when many just give up. :)

I want to think again of dangerous and noble things. I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable and beautiful and afraid of nothing as though I had wings.

I tracked everything and stayed within my calorie range. The carbs were WAY higher than my norm though.

I went for a 5 mile run/walk before I went to mom's to help with lunch. Mom & I took her dogs for a walk after lunch.

I've pretty much stuck with my 2-a-day workout schedule.

For those of us that have celebrated Thanksgiving, how are you doing 1 week post?

Did it set you back at all?

Please don't let 1 day or 1 weekend make you go backwards, even if you fell short of your goals last week, you can start fresh today!

Please remember we are all here for you.

Let us know how you are doing.
Lisa
