So Long Holidays!!

Whew! It's over! 90% of the Christmas stuff is packed away and I can start reliving life. There are no more cookies around, no more chocolate..

Seriously, I feel 900 million times better than I have since Thanksgiving. I went to the fitness center for the 9:15 Power Cycle class. I HATE this class. Well, I HATE that I'm huffing and puffing after about 10 minutes. The instructor is really nice. I left the class after 40 minutes (which is the class I usually take) and the instructor actually got off her bike to come down and tell me I did really well in the class. It was nice. Now she doesn't know that I've been working out since August and so it came off as a little condescending, but if it HAD been my first time and I'd only made it through part of the class it would have been very encouraging.

I have a brand new gym bag that I love from my hubby. It's just the right size to fit in the small lockers at the fitness center. It comes with a bag you can hang in the shower stall for your toiletries. It has lots of pockets. It is awesome.

I also received a tennis racket and some free weights (8 lb) for Christmas so I have quite a few gifts to help remotivate me!

My eating today is on target. It's a little bit hard after eating anything I wanted for the last month to think about it. One day at a time, one step at a time, one hour at a time, one minute at a time...

Happy New Year!
