Hi guys. I'm BAAAAAAACK
I didn't start out until Sat am because my oldest son wanted to take me out for a final "splurge" dinner and some just him and me time. We went to Firekeepers Casino.
LOL on top of everything else I ate over the holidays, and not being able to weigh in at all on a reliable scale, I was so worried about stepping on my scales today, I almost gave myself until the end of this week to just try and eat healthier before facing it.....
I'm truly ecstatic. I only gained 3 lbs, which is far and away better than the 10 or so I figured I'd gained.
So, I am undaunted about recovering and getting back to my journey.
I mainly need to get back to walking. Since I didn't get in until 8pm last night after a 10.5 hr portion of my jaunt, I am "at rest" today. I do plan to do my grocery shopping today, before which I need to fully unpack my car, which will take a bit of elbow grease because every time I go back to my house up north, I bring back a full car load of the belongings I'd left behind and have been missing.
Then, if I feel up to it, I may do the seated core video and Helene's utube seated zumba vid.

Hi KIM!!!!

Good for you that it is only 3 up. You will get that off alot sooner than the "ten" that many people put on during the holidays. I am working on getting 4-5 off, too. I put that on letting high sodium and higher carb into my life AGAIN. Also, slipped up on hydration, eating late at night, ya-da-ya-da.

All those little changes that i made to get a healthier life, I gradually let go, little by little. But I'm real serious, now. Thinking how much more weight it could and will be if I don't tackle it now.

Re-introduced myself to my elliptical. It gave me that "Who the heck are you look"! I saw a motivational poster that said "Are you really doing your best?" Had to look myself square in the face on that one! I know I can do better and will. Heck, this is January 7 already. Spring is just around the corner. I don't want to have this extra poundage on by then!

Glad you are safely back home. Unpacking burns calories, too.

Thanks Debbie, Barb and Judy... I was really scared of those scales. I swear, I ate EVERYTHING my little heart desired over the last 14 days, even going so far as making , and eating, most of a triple batch of those peppermint patties/assorted fruit cremes for house party gifts for people. Just parked myself by the table and kept grazing.... horrible scene, like a food fight where every drop of food lands in your mouth, lol
Then the Firekeepers splurge, OMG, terrible!! it was all you can eat steak and seafood, then of course the unbelieveable desserts bars..... But looking back, even though I got two desserts, I only ate 1/2 of one and 2/3 of the other, and ate mostly seafood for meats, so I guess it pretty much evened out. Most of the time, I applied the rule that if I knew a big meal was planned , i scrimped on food until that big meal. I guess it worked somewhat.
Judy, up 1/2 is nothing, water, you know that, lol.
Barb, laughed out loud about the "look" your eliptical gave you. My weight machine has so much collected dust that I can no longer see it's eyes.... which is ok, I hate the thing with a passion, which is about the ONLY thing I do with passion at this age, lol.
And yes, Debbie, family time was well worth it. Even driving that stupid 19 hrs. My body doesn't think so today, but sometime later this week I should be back to normal. Slept most of today... traveling really takes it out of me, feels like time travel.

Catching up on sleep is a good thing. Hope you get back to your normal faster than it took me. It took me awhile to get back to healthy eating and getting back to my exercise. Clothes still fit OK, BUT the scale was the "voice of reason"...."Stop the INSANITY"! LOL

Yeh, I'm still doing the "insane" right now. Seemed to be doing fine yesterday until I came in to read last night. I failed.
CHEETOS! OMG I HATE those things! HATE em, but still, eat em. Disgusting what my salt cravings will drive me to. Nasty yellow orange thingys anyhow! I mean can you think of ANY salty snack that LOOKS more manmade and , and FAKE???
Gross! but here I was eating the stupid things. eyeroll.......
but up till then it was ok. So....
One step at a time and I WILL BEAT THIS BEAST!

I understand the love/hate relationship with Cheetos or any salty crunchy chip like substance. I am grateful that there's only Abner in my house so it's easy for me to keep them out. If they were there, there would be no stopping me. Sad, but true.

Kim & Debbie, CHIPS are my kryptonite! My DH has them everywhere. At first when we got together I ate and ate them. Then when I got serious about weightloss and healthy I got a handle on blinders to them. But lately I am drawn to the little suckers late at night. I know, I know the salty/crunchy addiction is a BEAST! We are better than this....struggle struggle......

Here we go, if I cave in today, then it will mean having to think about starting over AGAIN tomorrow, so I guess it will be just easier to not cave in. Make any sense? Working real hard to pump up my flabby willpower.

BTW, Cheetos are hard to stop when you start.

I just had air popped popcorn, Crystal Light and one cheese stick (80) cal. I think the fiber from popcorn and hydration of a big water/like drink and the protein and calcium of the cheese keeps me feeling full enough to handle my struggle. I'm not really hungry.....
