Day 1 - Bringing in the New Year

Thursday, January 01, 2015

Well, I'm at my parents for the holidays, and we are all sick, unfortunately. My husband and I had planned to go bowling for New Years Eve, but I just wasn't feeling up to it. I tracked most of the day yesterday, but stopped tracking when we started our little celebration, but didn't go too crazy.

Today, I did good. Tracked everything the best I could. With everyone being sick, we decided just to order a pizza for dinner. I was able to track it and stick with it, even though I wanted to grab that one extra slice. I asked my husband to put leftovers away and promised them for lunch tomorrow. Drank only water, even though I usually love a soda with my pizza. I am trying to back off from soda, and stick with water or tea if I feel like I need the caffeine.

I think the last couple days of this trip are going to be pretty low key. I was supposed to see my Aunt tomorrow, but since we are all sick, I don't think I'm going to see her at all. I will get to see my sister on Saturday, because she is returning from a trip early :) An unexpected treat for me!

I weighed myself today, only up a few pounds from when we left on this vacation. That's really good, because I had myself pretty convinced I had gained 10lbs. I really should just weigh myself regularly on vacation to keep me from getting so stressed out about it towards the end of my trips.

It has been a good trip, despite everyone catching a cold. We're all in "quarantine" together!

I hope that everyone had a nice New Year celebration. Looking forward to great things in 2015!

    So glad I got to see you guys today! I'm really glad we got to spend more time together.

    It's hard to be on track when you're not at home. But that is really awesome that you only gained a few pounds while away. It's hard to weigh yourself while you're not at home, too, because it's not the same as yours and might not weigh exactly the same as yours does. Plus, of course, there's the dread that you're going to weigh more than you want to. So I totally understand that you don't really like stepping on the scale when you're away. But, as long as you're staying in the same place, it is a decent strategy for keeping yourself in check.

    I have complete faith that you can do this. No matter what you did yesterday, you can always pick yourself up today and start fresh. One bad day is much better than a bad week!

    Understand about the "bug". We went to our sons and five of us ended up catching a stomach flu one after the other, no fun! On to healthier and stronger days! Yea!

    Sorry to hear you are all sick. Try some chicken soup - it always makes me feel better.
