My goal for December was to maintain, I did very well all month. Then Christmas hit and it was a 3 day binge of sugar craziness (and goodness), that I am still struggling to reign in. I'm winning the battle though one fight at a time. To be honest though there is still enough goodies in a bag in the freezer (with my name on it) to keep me going at a healthy pace until next Christmas. Not to mention the chocolate my husband got for me.
I really never truly grasped the amount of goodies that come into our house during the holiday season as I have this year. I have learned a lot from this year that I hope to take into next holiday season, so one day I can happily stay in the enjoyment without pure over indulging.
Anyway my official weigh in this morning, after my 3 day binge was up 2 pounds. My measurements were all the same. I'm not concerned about the 2 pounds, I don't consider my goal a fail. I'm not going to cry into my box of chocolates, or get on my stepper in self disgust. I am going to acknowledge that the whole month I have stayed the same weight week to week, except the last week when I have not eaten as clean as normal. Also got injured at work Thursday and have been sitting 2 days
. We have been eating lots of leftover ham, but I cut it from my diet 2 days ago because ham=salt=water weight. I weigh myself daily and can tell you I lost 3 pounds from yesterday to today. Water weight, I think 2 pounds is a normal healthy weight fluctuation when not eating cleanly.
For this months goal I consider it a success. Now onto January
A new month, New Year, and new growth
