Last night I fell asleep sitting in the big chair in the living room crafting and watching Christmas movies, and I woke up and got into bed around 4am. Oops! After our Weight Watchers meeting, Mom and I made several batches of pecan pralines for my uncle and for the family Christmas dinner that’s coming up. Making candy on the agenda tonight after the gym as well. After the candy making, I made Christmas cards and put together a few more packages because everything has to be mailed out today.
I was pretty aggravated about my results when I stepped on the scale last night. I was down 0.6 pounds, and while I prefer a loss to the alternative, I deserved to lose more. I worked out several times last week (and need to start updating my workout page again) and ate reasonably even over the weekend. I discovered a new love for raw cabbage and said no to cupcakes at one point, ice cream at another time, etc. I did what I was supposed to do so I can only assume that if I keep doing it, I’ll show a nice loss when I’m back from my next trip.
Cal and I are heading out tomorrow after the wedding so I’ll have plenty of opportunities to make healthy choices before my next weigh-in. I have an exercise plan in place that will include going to the YMCA near Dad’s house where I can workout then swim, and at least at the moment, my desire to live healthy is bigger than my desire for junk food. I’m going to do my best to cling to that feeling, and take it one moment at a time.
I have a lot to do today so I’m cutting it short. What are your weekend plans? Is it just me, or does life seem to get busier as the month progresses? 🙂
