Surviving Christmas

Yesterday, was weigh in day once again. I attended a meeting as a member for the first time in over a year and it was definitely a good week to do so. The day after Christmas was smart day to go to a meeting and reflect. I had forgotten how important attending meetings for me was to my success. I really didn't learn anything new, but I was reminded of the importance of "me" time. I used to attend meetings and have that time to myself to think and clear my mind of all the things that happen throughout the week. It was nice to be able to have that once again.

I had a decent week, down 1.2. My plan for the week was to track 5 of 7 days and I did that. I also planned on exercising daily. The only day I missed was Christmas Day and there was no way around that one. Early morning present opening, followed by Christmas Mass, followed by family Christmas at my sister's for the day. Got home around 8:00pm and the wife decided to hook up the new Wii system that Santa brought our family. So it was my first Wii experience and I can see what draws people in.

Plan for this week will be making sure that I leave the house daily. Everyone is home for the week and if I don't have something to do, I'll find myself eating just to do something.

Have a good week and I'll be checking in sometime soon.

LOOOVE THAT PLAN. Just getting out of the house feels like a herculean task these days with the visiting family.
we seem to gather around food at the table around 9a and talk and talk and eat and eat and then it's midafternoon and we've done NADA.

I agree with the plan. Getting out and moving around is a great idea.
