Decembers goal

Saturday, December 31, 2016

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 emoticon . 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 emoticon

    Firstly hooray to see you back here. emoticon
    Congrats on a great month of December- because aside from one little 3 day slip up it was a great month for you. You know what to do.
    I've been side lined also - surgery - and it IS a drag, sitting around, eating ham. Yes, me too.
    Come back to us on the Iron Workers Team. We need you, and you might need us too.
    January is upon us, we need to set goals and work toward them. emoticon emoticon emoticon
