Another Holiday...Still not giving in!

Monday, February 04, 2013

There will always be another holiday around the bend. In the past, those special days were my excuse to throw caution to the wind, eat and drink whatever I wanted, nix the workouts and really enjoy myself. That would be fine if I limited that behavior to just one day. What I'm starting to realize (it has only taken me YEARS!) is that once I allow myself to dive off the deep end, I keep doing it. For days. For weeks. For months. Every Halloween through New Year's is like that. Then I'm 'good' for 3 or 4 weeks until the Superbowl. And the pattern starts again. I am finally making progress on that front. While I overindulged at the Superbowl Party yesterday, I kept my portions small. I didn't hang out near the food table all day. I ate vegetables. And this morning I got up, drank two glasses of water and had a healthy breakfast. I snuck a in a walk this afternoon. I haven't lost my will to be healthy because of a few unhealthy choices. And most of all, I'm not beating myself up about yesterday. There hasn't been one 'coulda shoulda woulda'. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and it was worth it. Life itself has a lot of give and take and so does this journey. I'm still in the battle! I just rested my weapons for a spell. And now I'm back, fiercer than ever! Bring it on....
