The Plan works as well as you do...

The Plan works as well as you do...

My previous blog was about initiating a plan to cope with the holidays. I have to say it worked pretty darn good for the most part.

Of course it is only as good as the person working it and I do have my moments.

Like chocolates, not on Christmas Eve, not on Christmas day... downfall was boxing day!


It was a day of rest and relaxation; putting away gifts and goodies.

Unfortunately we had received chocolates as gifts.

I don't buy, I don't have them on my home.


Well, because of the mindless eating.

One begets two...

Two begets three...

...You get the picture.

Well, they are gone! They are out of here!

I hope it isn't too little too late, but they are gone.

Thank you, thank goodness.

Now I have a plan and am putting that into place.

I have enrolled in 2 classes per week of Kickboxing (Sunday & Tuesday).

I have committed to a Spin & Strength class on Monday evenings.

I have committed to a Zumba class on Wednesdays.

I am committed to working out with a friend on Saturdays.

That is a commitment of 5 days of exercise.

I am sure I can do it.

I am sure I can make it work and make my body work, perhaps even more than the plan.

Hugs and love,

    You'll do great. All that exercise will balance out one day of enjoying a little chocolate. emoticon

    Those gift chocolates are a twofer guilt wagon waiting to happen. Glad they've traveled out of the house. The remedy is to enjoy the indulgence and get back on the Plan which you're obviously doing. Go 2013!

    Easily forgivable to have a sweet slip at this time of year. And just one day, wot the heck, Love!! Your plan helped me VERY much too. Chocolate is not my downfall, but dry cider can be ... so I bought 8 tins of my favourite Irish brand a week ago and enjoyed one a day! Now that, like your goodies, they are GONE, I am not sulking over having denied myself, nor do I miss them at all. Today has been 99% back to paleo, with only a Tbsp of stuffing crumbled into my sauteed veggies tonight. No cravings, no hunger, no guilt ... lovin' the one-day-at-a-time Be Good To Myself plan!

    Thanks, as always, for your influence and example. Yeah, you still kinda rock bigtime, eh. Y'DOOOO!

    Way to go for committing to so much exercise - I know you will do do awesome at it! Chocolates are hard to resist, especially fancy boxed chocolates - hard to stop at one, that's for sure. Chalk it up to a Christmas treat and now you are on to bigger and better things - getting skinny in 2013! So proud of you for all you have already accomplished, and I know it's only going to get better from here. Love you!!

    As soon as something is in my house, that's it for me. It was pumpkin pie that came to visit for Xmas.

    The only chocolate i allow in my home is the 60% cocoa? chirardeli pieces I might have on a microwaved banana or pear as a desert for flavor that is it. I've done pretty well with portion and can say no. Great motivation you are Angela. You are a winner!
