On the weigh down

Weight 181 lbs. So far so good. It's been hard to resist a lot of the good food and treats flying around. Not going to lie, I've hard more than my fair share of salted caramel shortbread cookies. But, they were a unique homemade treat that I made room for in my calorie budget. 

Writing a few quick sentences in my journal first thing in the morning, really helps. I just set out my intentions for the day. Exercise goals, eating strategies, feelings, whatever comes to mind.

This is crunch time. The next few weeks, I have some sort of event involving food almost every single day. My goal is not to gain over the holidays. Reading over some old posts, I remind myself when selecting food from a menu or pot luck to think "Is it worth it?". 

On the exercise front, the holidays usually involve a lot of sitting, eating, and talking. I do have plans to hop on the treadmill when I'm visiting my mother since her apartment has a gym.  I do hope the weather is cold enough to go ice skating on the canal. Sometimes it's hit and miss. I could head down to NYC and do Rockefeller Center for some skating... just like Snoopy! 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to anyone who passes by here :) 


  1. I hope your Christmas was fantastic!
