Sweet Christmas

Sunday, December 30, 2012

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful Xmas. I just got back from visiting with family for Christmas. It was truly wonderful seeing everyone, especially my nephews who seem to have shot up in height since I last saw them. Well it was a lot of fun and a lot of eating. I slipped hard on the sugar and the wheat, hey there was homemade biscotti and baclava, scones and Christmas cake... I could not resist....

The surprising reaction to all this sudden intake of foods I had cut out or reduced considerably over the past few months was depression. i felt really awful a few days later, it was not the kind of " well I made a mistake and will have to pick up and do a u turn" but I felt really so unhappy. I dont know why I felt that way, it seemed a bit extreme to me.

Anyway, I am back now and back to my eating plan, though still finding it hard to exericse as I cannot go outdoors anymore...10 inches of snow....I hate going round and round on the treadmill, but I am forcing myself.

Over Christmas someone told me of a way to do "slow burn" apparently a kind of exercise you only need to do twice a week. This sounds too good to be true but I have ordered the book from the library and am going to try it out. if it works then it would be a good option for the winter months when you cant do anything outdoors.

    For indoor work outs I have been doing Leslie Sansone videos I found on youtube. She has a contagious happy energy and make exercising inside not so boring. Might be worth checking it out, if you haven't already. Here's wishing you a happy and healthy New Year. :)
