Christmas is over, time to get back on track.

Monday, December 27, 2010

Well, I'm headed home from Christmas in Houston. I'm tired, I feel bloated, I over ate, and my grandmother is not doing well. I drank a bit of beer, so that doesn't help either. Anyway, all this is behind me. I'm here to continue this journey. I have come a long way, lost 9 lbs. I'm sure I have gained some back...scratch that, I am pretty sure I have gained a lot back. But the point isn't that. the point is that I have lost weight, I have gained muscle, I have changed my eating habits, and I feel better when I am on track. these are all things to motivate me to get back up and just do this.

So, here's the plan. We have an unexpected two days home before heading to Branson. This is where the jump start happens...

*Get a two day pass at my neighborhood 24 hour gym
*Buy groceries for the two days to jump start my eating.
*Use my heart rate monitor to start tracking my calories burned...
*Hit the gym for a few hours both days. 30 DS in the mornings, then cardio and more weights at the gym later in the day.
*Detox body of toxins from foods and drinks I indulged in for the Holidays.

After the two days at home, we leave for Branson where we stay at Big Cedar Lodge. they have a gym and hot tubs and our room will have a kitchen so we can cook our foods thank goodness.

Then there is New Years night. I do plan to drink, which means I need to really hit the gym hard at the lodge. I also plan to avoid the snacking and over eating. I have to get back on track. It is quite important to me that I do this before the new year. I have to prove to myself that I haven't fallen off the wagon, I have just taken a short break from my journey. I will succeed this time, no matter how long it takes me!

My goal for this week is to get back to 145 lbs. I plan to work hard and kick butt in the gym and in the kitchen. Once I get back to 145, then I will worry about my goals I had set from before. So, here we go!

    You can do it!!! I finally weighed myself at home and I was 145, so now its about resisting the temptation to splurge because I "deserve" it. I hope your two tough days go well for you and you enjoy your new years!

    Just remember we allowed to lighten up on ourselves occassionally.....it is not the end of the world....

    Something that may help you over New Year.....just try some of the snacks.....just a little.....that may satisfy your urge to snack because they are there and may help you feel a part of the celebrations with0pur doing damage....
    Just a thought....

    Glad you spent time with your family. I too over-indulged a bit. I no longer beat myself up for it. I got right back on track and burned some goo at the gym this evening. Good for you for getting back on track!
