Recovering from Thanksgiving Slip-Up
Sunday, November 25, 2007
Boy did I overdo it during this Thanksgiving holiday. I began this week long feast last Monday with a celebration at work followed by yet another celebration the next day. Family came to visit for Thanksgiving and the eating frenzy continued through yesterday, of which was my son's birthday celebration with cake and pizza. I cannot believe how I allowed myself to lose control. Even my exercise fell by the wayside for a week with my focus moving from myself to getting my house clean and completing a defensive driving course for a speeding ticket. I'm starting over today in an effort to prevent the same behavior during this upcoming Christmas season. My goal was to maintain my current weight through the holidays. I did gain this past week. Therefore, I must revise my goal to resume my 5 day workout routine and to at least track my food intake daily. I have to lose this weight I gained over the last week and try my best to lose a bit more before the year ends.
