Good for you! We all slip, but having a plan to get us where we need to be is exactly on target. Wish I could think through things as well as you instead of the panic which comes with "all or nothing" syndrome which must be back there somewhere. I have confidence you will be right back where you need to be. Listen to your body, it is telling you exactly what it needs.

Yesterday was a bad day for me in more ways than one. I may be "technically" still marshmallow free but I did buy and over indulge on some Christmas candy. (some of which had a marshmallow base to it so I guess I fell off the wagon). I paid for it BIG TIME too! Couldn't sleep much. Was extremely dehydrated, bad headache, woke up a few times with leg cramps and overall feel hung over.
Today is a new day and I'm back on plan and staying away from any and all forms of sugar. Gonna drink lots of water and eat lots of healthy fruits, veggies and homemade soup!
Irene Good for you for all the exercise you do. Great idea to walk in WalMart, especially if it's a super store. Huge! It's cold outside. Today is my official rest day from exercise but I'll soon go outside to collect all the brunches that fell from the trees due to very high winds. It probably will take me an hour.
Nancy How nice of you. I'm sure you delivered the whole cake.
Already had my vegetables, half of my water and whole-grains and legums. Today will be a great day!!!
I'll celebrate 12 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2016!
