Last day of holiday eating!

Is tomorrow!

Holy crap, family visiting, get togethers, etc etc.  I've had two weeks of eating and family (fun but not fun for the scale.)  I'm sure many of you on my FB have seen the ridiculous amounts of things I've been tagged in lately.

I've seen some scarrrrrrrrrry numbers on my scale this week.  Today we ate out THREE times.  I ordered a plain 6oz steak and steamed broccoli, plain iced teas, grilled chicken, etc- things like that.  I even had two bites of some apple dessert my MIL ordered and told everyone I was done. MAN.  I'm trying here, LOL, but the sodium is killling me!

Tomorrow is the last day, we are doing a huge Filipino New Years drunken who knows what at my MIL's house.  I am roasting a turkey and a pork in my oven all day and then we're heading over there to eat more. *sigh*

Then finally life goes back to normal, I can get back to my body pump classes and arc machine visits.  


I also don't diet.  I changed my life 2 years ago and lost 50lbs and have kept it off.  After this last holiday meal I'm going back to counting calories, eating healthy, and attending my regular exercise classes. :)

I started paying more attention to my intake and calories and activity level Nov 18...and did great till Thanksgiving cause for whatever reason, this MONTH of celebrating got the best of me.  I didnt see true gain I dont think but there was a definite roller coaster on the scale.  Up and down, the same 8 lbs.  I'm still at where I was RIGHT before Thanksgiving, so I feel good about that.

Today is officially my last day of holiday eating.  I actually look forward to eating better and getting more exercise in.

Yay for the end of celebrations and Hello New Year!!

Me too;) I posted not so long ago that I was "starting over" bwhahaha! Who was I kidding? Right before Christmas? Anyway I really am getting back on track once these leftovers are gone. But the cookies, desserts and snacky things are done with after tomorrow. Sigh. It was fun. But I'm giving myself a week before I get on the scale.

I have already begun to work on my weight. I have been walking everday anwhere between .8-2mi.. also began tracking my food on I want to get this weight off. I just need staying power on this lifestyle change. 

I think CafeMom just went screwy a few minutes ago. I started trying to reply to one of my posts that I've been working in all day then all of a sudden it wouldn't let me. Apparently I'm not a member of the group any more. Upon further investigation, I found that I apparently haven't joined any groups yet. Hmmmmm. Anyone else having sudden problems?

slapping forehead 

I'm right there with you.  I've gained 7 pounds since the beginning of November.  I feel disgusing.

I am starting a diet today. That whole New Year's Resolution thing. I have been abusing my body for about 6 months and it really shows, so now I need to reverse some damage.

 I can't do any excersizing until my dr. clears me, but i can start my diet. I'm going completely pescetarian. the ONLY "meat" i will be eatting will be fish and seafood. The rest is all veggies and fruits and such. I have already cut bread and pasta out of my diet, and tomorrow will be the day i cut back on all the sweet foods. The sodium doesn't bother me since i'm Hypotensive and need the sodium to keep my BP normal.
