I am so super glad it is Friday. With this cold and the cold outside – I would really love to just curl up and sleep 🙂
I can’t – But I would love too.
My family Christmas party is this weekend and I am not ready. My Secret Santa gift is not purchased. I need to go buy ham and buns and pack up my dishes for service. But at least the party is Sunday and I still have all day tomorrow, AND my hubby has tomorrow off so he can help me – read that as drive me around in his SUV 😀
So yesterday I was cranky and felt defeated. Then after my shower I put on a top that I have not worn in I don’t know how long and it looked really good. My tummy is really responding to my diet and my working out and blasting. The blob over my belly-button is really shrinking and that made me feel better. Last night my hubby and I went out to dinner and I had carbs with my chicken (rice AND rolls). This morning I got up feeling a bit more positive even if this cold has hit full force now, I am back to my low carbing. I know I will reach my goals even if I have a cheat meal now and then, because I am not throwing my hands up and saying “F-IT”. Little detours make the long road less hard. But knowing that it was a little detour and not a new route is the main thing in staying on plan long term.
I am happy with my progress and I really am unwilling to throw that all away – so I think I have made it to a new place mentally. I have thrown this away so many times its stupid. That is part of why I feel better today. I’m happy with myself for not wanting to bag it. I could. The holidays are here and food galore is abound. But no – I have three planned days where I am going to indulge, 24th, 25th and the 26th. The 27th will be a rough day to get those three days of sugar our of my system but I have to do it so I can MAYBE have one more day on New Years Eve/Day. We don’t have a party or anything to go to, in fact I think I’m babysitting – but sometimes I want a drink that is not low carb so that would fit the bill too 🙂
I just took some cold meds at 9. For the most part I can breath but now I’m as dry as the desert and I still have a lot of sinus pressure…hope that stops soon. Maybe my workout at lunch will help it drain.
OK – I have to go
