The Holidays are Here!!

 Run for the hills..........

Just kidding.  I love the holidays.  However, I would be lying if I said I had self control during them.

Thanksgiving is the holiday that always kicks off the holiday season.  It's the first "holy crap I ate too much" holiday closely followed by Hanukkah, Christmas Eve, Christmas and New Years Eve.  Then finally....we have a looooooong break from these types of holidays.  Don't get me wrong...I LOVE the holiday season, mostly because of CHRISTMAS! And the funny thing...I am supposed to be celebrating Hanukkah...but I love me some Christmas. Anyways....This Thanksgiving I can honeslty say that I did not go overboard.  I ate alot yes, but I did not reach that point as to where I wanted to shoot myself in the face. I had one plate of food and that was it.  Now...desserts on the other hand.  My family makes some good desserts including pecan pie AND chocolate pecan pie.  So of course I ate those.  But I am happy to say that I don't think I caused a lot of damage this weekend.

I made sure to workout whenever I could while I was staying at my parents house in Delaware. I went down Wednesday night and didn't leave until Sunday night.  I managed to get a few great workouts in.

Yes, that is Richard Simmons.
The original Zumba.
I love him.
Best friend workout!
I was able to run .5 mile without stopping.
Getting there...
It was a great feeling to be able to run that half a mile without stopping.  I feel like I am really getting back to my old progress.  However, after the running and the "dancing" of Richard Simmons, my back was really hurting by Friday night. It was really sore and I was afraid I pushed myself too hard too soon.  So I decided to take it easy the rest of the weekend.  I am glad I did but I feel like there were a few times this weekend where I ate crap and needed a good workout.

That is why I decided to skip my ww weigh in tonight.  Terrible decision this early on, but I wouldn't be able to handle a gain.  I am going to go to the gym tonight instead and work my ass off all week and hope for a good number next week!  That is the plan!!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!!

    And I am always surprised on the weeks that I expect a gain I don't always get it...then the scale can wallop me when I'm least expecting. darn scale. Go to your meeting! :P
