The Day After

How was your Thanksgiving? Did you eat too much? Did you load up on healthy veggies and avoid the pies? Did you go for a walk after dinner, or settle in on the couch to watch football?

Mine was okay. I had a pretty big meal, but didn't eat until I felt sick. I didn't go back for seconds. I had a 1/2 slice each of two kinds of pie. I didn't exercise, and I didn't drink enough water. But all in all, could have been a lot worse.

I weighed in this morning, and I'm up a full pound from where I started this journey. Only up 0.4 from two weeks ago when I last weighed in. I'm seriously debating letting the whole ticker "start over" on January 1 and calling wherever I'm at that day my "beginning weight." Is that cheating? Or is it better for my weight loss to truly reflect my highest point?

Anyway, I went for a long walk today, and I've eaten some homemade trail mix and coffee for breakfast, a big healthy salad and some fruit for lunch. I'm feeling okay. It's all about progress, not perfection.

Most Awesome Song I Heard While Working Out: "It's My Life" by Bon Jovi. I love Bon Jovi. They're as awesome today as they were back in the 80's, even if they have a little less hair. Are any of you going to see them on their current tour? I want to, but seriously, $128 each for tickets?! EACH?! I don't think I can cough that up. Well, I would for Olivia.

I became vividly aware of how tight my clothes have gotten this weekend. I knew my weight was ticking upward, but I got a big look at how much this weekend and I'm determined to do something about it immediately. Why can't I just always eat healthy and exercise faithfully every day? It's not hard. So why don't I do it?
