Holiday Stumble

As Grinchy as I was feeling this year I was beginning to wonder if I would make it through the holidays, but I did! It's pretty dismal on the weight loss front however.  So much good food! I do the same thing every year (as I'm sure a lot of people do.) I give myself a little pep talk before I even lay eyes on the holiday spread about how I'm going to enjoy a taste but control myself and somehow every year that goes right out the window as soon as the food is in view and now, thanks to my own doing, I'm feeling super Grinchy again.

I haven't stood on the scale in weeks, which was also the last time I was at a weight watchers meeting. The way my clothes fit hasn't changed so I'm seriously hoping I haven't gained too much.  I'm considering going back to basics, dropping the new weight watchers plan and going it on my own with the old plan and Zumba.  I've done it before and I know I can do it again!  Hell, if it fails I can always go crawling back to the meetings.  I loved the old plan and had great success with it, and that was before I discovered the ass kicking Zumba work outs.  I can do it, just writing this post has got me all pumped!!

On a side note, Santa made it to our house and we had a great Christmas! There was about 24 hours there when I was feeling the holiday spirit. I was spoiled with a lot of tools to help me in this journey (Wii fit, Biggest Loser Wii game, and the Zumba Wii game.) Watching Frankie enjoy the celebration was definitely the best part though.  She was good to include her little sister Andie and still managed to squeeze out a few "thank yous" to the people who gave her gifts.

As depressing and frustrating as fighting being overweight can be it's good to know that the people who love me love me for me, and will always be there for me no matter my size. :)  Happy Holidays everyone!

  16. Recently I have stumbled upon a curious article providing the analysis, conducted by nutrition scientists, on which elements are essential for keeping great shape and how they work - http://bit.ly/Qh9G8S. They also write a lot about pre-workout and post-workout nutrition. Very interesting information for all athletes.
