There Once Was a Girl.....

There was a little girl,    
Who had a little curl,

Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good,

She was very good indeed,

But when she was bad she was horrid.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

It's so true. It's so me! When I fall off the wagon I REALLY fall off.

I have indulged a bit much this holiday season. Definitely not like in years past though. I am not gorging myself or totally pigging out. I'm still keeping my portions smaller and eating a healthy lunch and breakfast, but I am indulging a bit much on treats: cookies, fudge and candy. I am not making excuses here, but I will say that I have been so busy and didn't make time to workout and if I'm not working out....I'm not as disciplined in what I eat.

Luckily though, Santa brought candy for my kids that I don't really like so that's good. Less of a temptation.

I'm getting after it next week though. I'm going to go hardcore and I'm not falling off again. Ever. I loved working out hard the first two weeks we started this. I actually felt GREAT. Plus, basketball season is starting and I want to be able to play more than 2 minutes at a time. I can't run for long periods of time yet, but by this time next year, I'll be a whole new me and I can't wait!

You know, I have that same curl....

Seriously, though, even the steps you've taken are good ones. Maybe you didn't lose weight this holiday season, but maybe you didn't gain any either. That's a win.

Do what you can where you are. You'll get there!

I didn't lose any, either, but I didn't gain any. I wish I was already down like twenty pounds, but it's what I do in the long haul that makes it a lifestyle change. You have really impressed me with the salads and getting to the gym--more than me!
