Climbing back on the wagon in time for the holidays.

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Hey everyone! I know I haven't been around lately and I aim to remedy that. I hope you have been well and reaching your goals!

Since my last blog in the summer I actually fell off the wagon and regained weight. Uuuugh. I'm not gunna let it derail me completely though! Normally through the holiday season I sadly gain 15 pounds I lose again in the new year, but since I already gained that I am terrified of gaining more. There is zero way that I can let that happen and so I am really cracking down and committing myself to fitness and eating well. I stress a lot about Thanksgiving and Christmas because there is always so much food and high calorie treats like cookies and pies, so I am going to limit how much I make and send my family home with the leftovers if they want them. lol It'll be hard since I'm such a foodie but it can and will be done!

Oh yeah, I'm going to get the Spark Activity Tracker for Christmas. I've been looking into it since it came out and I really think it will motivate me each day! I am sooo excited. Do any of you have it? What do you think? =)

    Glad to see you are back! There is no time like the present to gift yourself with healthy choices! We all have been through setbacks but we can analyze the why and how they happen and learn from them. And you know what? I did better than ever last year over the holidays! I think if you are totally aware that there will be many many temptations and plan ahead you can feel secure in knowing that you CAN enjoy the holiday parties and goodies in MODERATION and not feel deprived. It is all about making mindful choices! emoticon -Connie

    Yes, we missed you. emoticon back! I think it help to have a strategy about how you are going to handle food and you do... emoticon I use to play a game with myself when I had a lot of business functions to attend. Before I would go I would say, if the dessert is chocolate you can have it....otherwise pass it up. Or if I really wanted the hard rolls with butter I would decide beforehand that I would skip the dessert. So you might want to think about what food do you "really, really want" and have some of those and forget the rest. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    The important thing is that you're back! The fact that you are aware of what you want, and have that motivation means that you are bound to succeed.
    I want the Activity Tracker too!
