One Bad Day Can Ruin a Week
Happy New Year's!!
I had a wonderful New Year's Week. Should have stopped celebrating at Christmas cause a lot of bad habits crept back into my routine this week. We had company over for New Year's Eve. My MIL and FIL brought fillet to grill, which was great, but they also brought more cookies. My 5 yr. old called Grandma to ask if she'd bring more. My kids know enough to stop after 1 cookie, they also know to ask before eating another one, and my 5 yr. old always asks how many she can have so as to pick only her favorites. Wish I could stop at 1, have the smarts to ask someone for another, and choose only my favorites. Our other company, who was only one petite little thing, brought two trays of taco dip, chips, salsa and two tubs of French Onion dip, along with a huge Happy New Year cookie. I justified eating more than one piece thinking that it only counted as ONE cookie.
Not a good weigh in this week. I stayed for the last meeting, but for some reason (um, is it a New Year) there was a crowd of people that came and the leader asked me to weigh as she was ready to start the meeting. I weighed more people in during that 15 minute period! My favorite response from a weigh in came from a long time member who had a bit of a struggle period last year. Her goal was to get below 200 by 2010 and she did it!!
I know what I did this week and will strive to do better. Seems that New Year's and New Year's Eve was just another excuse for me not to track. I know I can do better! My goal for the week is to track honestly even if it's not the best.
Have a great weekend!
