I enjoyed my vacation immensely. On Thanksgiving, I had two plates full of all the good things in life and then later I had a piece of almost every dessert on the table...cake, blueberry pie, banana bread, chocolate pie, chocolate peanut brickle, pecan pie. Yes, it was a lot, but here's the thing. I took a SLIVER of each thing, not an entire piece. I allowed myself the freedom to indulge a bit and this freedom made sure I didn't gorge myself with huge pieces. Because I was free to eat everything, I didn't feel the need to make excuses of what I could and couldn't have and the stress that usually goes along with that was non existent.
I am glad to get back into my routine, but all in all I did really well. When I could I ate what I normally eat for breakfast and lunch, and then I enjoyed.
The best part - I still lost 2 lbs over vacation!!
Have you thought about your December goals yet? I figured I would since it is better to be prepared.
I don't normally set timed weight goals, but I would really love to see 199.5 by the end of the year. That means 6 lbs. Very doable.
And I have a goal to ENJOY December. To Enjoy the cookie parties and social gatherings and know that I have accomplished much and the rate that I get to my ultimate goal is somewhat up to me. So if I want a few cookies it is not the end of the world, it may just take me a week or two to get to where I am going. Sometimes that is worth it.
