I didn't post over the weekend and that's really not all that unusual, even though my goal is to post daily. It was just a busy, busy weekend but the honest truth is that I was definitely struggling and was in denial. I wasn't ready to see it in writing ... you know, my vulnerability and mistakes.
Our Christmas party was a success and everyone had fun. Some of the games didn't go as well as I hoped but no one seemed to care. There was lots of laughs and food and adult beverages. I wasn't as successful as I had hoped but I didn't totally fold my hand either.
Sunday I was tired and nursed a headache and didn't feel like getting out and doing the shopping I needed to do. It was leftover turkey sandwiches for lunch while we watched football. Way to go COLTS!.
Last night at TOPS I weighed in with a loss of 1 1/2#. I totally did not think that would happen. I was holding my breath that I would stay the stay as the week before. I can't quite get my head around eating a higher calorie range (I never lowered my calories from 1600 like I said I would) and then be WAY over on the weekend with not the wisest choices. You play with fire and you're going get burned ... so, I've put a stop to the mindless eating and am back on track. I know I will have to be extra careful this week as the body chemistry does it calibration.
Christmas Party #2 of three is now in the books. Those are just parties I'm responsible for ... there are two others. One is tomorrow for my department at work and the other is a family party that my niece is hosting a week from Saturday. I'll get through all of them without major damage but I'm going to enjoy the season regardless.
