Its not the end of the world...

....but in a rush of self pity it feels like it. So I have been away from Sparkpeople for a couple of weeks. Week 1 I spent in UK where I had a very happy sociable time, vowing to do better the following week, but on my last day went down with a horrible cold and didnt feel like doing anything for a few days. I ate too much! So week 3 and I went skiing. Now that should have been enough to keep up my resolve but surrounded by friends again it all went pear shaped and yes I admit it, I ate lunches up the mountain and a hearty dinner thinking that because I was skiing in the cold I would be burning more than enough calories to compensate.

Well moment of truth this morning and stepping on the scales I see that I gained back just over a kilo. Felt so miserable. So now in the interest of accountability if only to myself, I own up... I had 2 glasses of mulled wine almost every afternoon. I ate dessert at lunch and at dinner. I had french fries more than once. I did not drink enough water (alcoholic drinks were flowing well though)

I did it, mea culpa, its all my own fault. So armed with this I am back on track. Determined to undo the bad and have walked for 80 minutes - 5.75 km and burned off a load of calories. I do feel better for doing something - it could so easily have gone the other way and I could have made a dash for the chocolate shop.

    Wow you only put on a kilo! I am not minimising how annoying and upsetting this is but considering what a great time you had and after what you said you ate, I think you did damn well!

    A kilo is a minor blip - it's not like you gained 10lbs or a really huge amount of weight and given your new resolve and "I'll do it" attitude you will lose that mini little kilo in no time.
    Savour your brilliant memories of what sounds like a great time.

    So you are human emoticon after all! You sound as though you had a great time and all that skiing will have counteracted some of the calorie intake. You will soon recover the weight loss with your renewed commitment to healthy living. Go for it! emoticon
