morning cuppa spark - was it worth it?

Monday, December 25, 2017

...maybe... well, probably not.

the slippery slope continued yesterday with our one and only holiday party.

the day started off well enough - i baked gingerbread cookies without snitching a single bit of dough (beck rules #1 no food between breakfast and lunch; #2 eat only sitting down). and i had my cookies with lunch. and then a few more... of the goodies from the neighbor. ruh roh.

still, manically preparing house and dinner for incoming guests, before the neighborhood party at 3:30. reached the 15,000 steps with barely any added exercise - didn't even walk to the neighbor's house.

at the party - did not really have a plan. did not really follow beck - ate standing. upside - did NOT eat cheese. credit. downside - did eat a couple of goodies that definitely had dairy in them. went back for more.

after the party, dinner at home - more cookies after dinner.

scale today - not happy.

was it worth it? yes and no. yes, because how often does it happen, the opportunity just isn't there. no because - well, probably the number on the scale makes me happier than munching on the goodies at the party.

as long as i now plan in (back to tracking) my gingerbread cookies in the day's calories, i'll be ok for this week. and the scale will probably return to its happy place soon enough.

as for today - no video - i SLEPT!! more this past night in one session than the two sessions the night before. and that leaves little time for exercise while the rest of the house sleeps. priorities and choices.

meals are planned for the day.

hopefully will get a good walk in, but will take the day as it comes.

wishing peace to all.
