Bermuda triangle of weight loss
Monday, December 27, 2010
I have been off for awhile. I decided it was far to hard to keep on the right track during the holiday season. My family is huge and Italian! Food is every where all the time. I did keep going to my trainer 2-3 times a week, though.
My family does a pot luck type of dinner for Thanksgiving, and there was well over 30 people there, so you can imagine the amount of food and very little of it was in any way healthy. I did very well with my portion control, though. I was very proud of myself and my trainer was also proud of me.
Christmas has been the worst when it comes to food and temptation for me! My second year teaching and several students, parents and fellow teachers gave me yummy goodies for the holiday season. I did very well at first... but after passing up about 3 days worth of treats, I gave in. At first it was small samplings, and then it reared into larger and larger samples, until I was eating well above recommended portion sizes!!! I was/am disappointed in myself.
To top all this off, I live on the Eastern Shore of MD, and we just got blasted with snow. I have pretty much been snowed in for a couple of days and there is a lot of junk left in my cabinets. I know I will still be eating bad for the next couple of days, maybe I will start fresh for the new year. I know it sounds cliche. Wish me luck!
