True Confessions – 01/03/12 – The Shrinking Jeans of Christy


January 3, 2012 By Christy

It’s been a long time since I’ve confessed. To keep things simple, and because I have a ton of things to accomplish today, I’m going with the bullet format!

  • I look like I’m 6 months pregnant. For some reason all the weight I’ve gained has gone straight to my gut. When I was at bootcamp this morning, I did NOT enjoy the bouncing belly when I did jumping exercises. Gah.
  • I ate way too much food over the holidays. Way too much. And I certainly didn’t move enough. I feel especially bad about this because here I am motivating and encouraging all of you with challenges to keep you moving through the holidays, and there I was sitting on my ass in the shadows eating too much. At least I wasn’t maniacally laughing or anything. I would *never* do that. Like Nancy said in her confessions today, I was talking the talk, but not walking the walk.
  • Today I am lusting for food. Seriously. It seems like it’s all I can think about. I came home and pulled up my menu planning calendar this morning just to see what we were having for dinner so I could think about it all day. I cannot wait for lunch (only 1.5 more hours!). And I am thinking about having a snack right now. This will go on for at least another week before my body adjusts to not getting what it wants all the time – kinda like a spoiled child. But I know it will get better. This is just my withdrawals

That’s all I’ve got for now. Hopefully from now on my confessions will be all about how awesome I’m doing and how much weight I’m losing while my jeans (and gut) are shrinking. I know it will be my reality soon. Very soon!
