Hello All! 

I hope you all had a wonderful long Holiday weekend, and you got to spend time with family and friends. I did, in fact, I am still on my long weekend. I took today off to just veg and chill and that’s exactly what I’m doing. That’s also exactly what I’ve been doing for the last 3 days. We are somewhat snowed in (by choice really) and that is fine by me. 

My challenges for the last few days have been to go easy on the Christmas goodies and I will be completely honest with you here: I failed. Big Time. Which brings me to today’s challenge: damage control. I have already done 35 minutes on the elliptical and I started my day with a good breakfast and a good lunch ( I had a teeny piece of chocolate pie for dessert, though. It was totally worth it!).  I’m going to try and NOT grab some kind of sweet every time I walk through the kitchen, and I am going to load up on the water.  I hope that I can taper off the sweets today and start fresh tomorrow.  Really out of the last five days, I’ve only wrecked two of them with massive amounts of sugar, so I haven’t done too awful, but if I keep going, it won’t be pretty. 

I am excited about a new thing I’m going to start on January 2nd. It’s a 30 day program where you work with a registered dietician. I’ll tell you all more about it when I get more details, but I think it will be a great way to start out the new year. 

Okay, that’s all I’ve got for now. I’ll try and post tomorrow when things get somewhat back to normal. Only two and half days to work this week and then I get a 3 and a half day weekend again!  Woohoo!!  🙂
