I survived another xmas with the family and it wasnt horrible. I had no idea what to expect since my sister came home with a broken heart after being dumped by her boyfriend (which resurfaced on xmas even when she saw a pic of him and a new girl on facebook) and my brother failed out of his last semester at college. I thought for sure it would be arguing and fighting, but actually, we all did the best we could. This was the hardest year to be away from my fiance, but at least I know that next year we will be together and start our own traditions, which hopefully involve less food and more exercise!
I didnt do an ounce of exercise over the past week and I feel horrible. Right after I finish typing this up, Im gearing up the Jillian Michaels dvds and i know Ill be in for a nice butt kicking that will make me regret my lack of movement the past week. I actually was fairly busy most of the time, but I definitely could have done something and I chose not too. That I definitely regret, especially since I ate my share of cookies and other treats. I dont feel I went completely overboard, but as good as I was doing before I left, I know anything I lost is definitely back on. But at least I know that its not permanent. I hate how this feels and if anything, I am more than enough motivated to pick up the healthy eating and working out. I threw out the remaining cookies and gave some to my fiance's parents, have eaten healthy all day, and like I said, am gearing up for the workout. Sparkpeople is up on my screen again and I will continue my "experiment" to see what results I can get in the new year.
I hope you all faired well throughout the holidays and have a happy new year!
Me with my sister, dad, and brother
