Good morning, Sisters and Brother!
It is the Wednesday after a major (U.S.) food-centered holiday and, as I’ve read, there were also birthdays (Brian!) and children’s birthdays and husband’s birthdays going on this past weekend, and well, it’s been an eating nightmare to many people this past week, to be perfectly honest.
How has it been for you? A dream? Or a nightmare? Did you play it safe? Did you make exceptions? Did you work off the excess?
Let’s find out! Head on over to the scale, weigh in, blog about it and report back in the comments below! If you don’t have a blog, leave your progress in the comments! And if you don’t live in the U.S., be thankful you didn’t have a country-wide gorgefest going on this past week!
I did find something out about myself this year. I couldn’t physically sit down and eat as much as I could last year. I wasn’t halfway through my pile of food before I was full already and I couldn’t even fit dessert. That’s a food victory to me! I also spanked that 10k on Thanksgiving Day, coming in more than 11 minutes faster than last year’s!
The days that followed, however, were the most troublesome for me. The opposite of food victory. I’m not proud. The leftovers, the birthday parties for my two-year-old… So we’ll see how that translates on the scale.
Tell us all about your week! Tell us what you did, how you’d have done it differently or if you’d have done it differently. Did you learn anything? What will you take with you to the next round of holidays? By the end of this weekend, my body was screaming for a green bean or something even remotely healthy.
I just want to say here that this is the time when so many of us fall off the wagon and undo what we’ve worked so hard for. I beg you, don’t. If you’ve fallen off for Thanksgiving, just get back on. A few days off will be a lot less damage than 30 days off. We still have challenges going on here and motivation and support amongst each other, so please, if there’s any week to go and visit your sisters and brother, it’s this week. We must get through this holiday season and we must do it together!
Whatever happened, we hope you had a wonderful holiday with your families.
So get to it! We wanna know! How did you do?
