First workout following Thanksgiving break was painful. I went to the gym even though I didn’t want to. We were gone for the break and I didn’t workout while I was gone. When I stop doing cardio for several days I twitch pretty bad when I start-up again. My own fault so I am not complaining. I feel as though I had a bit of a victory over Thanksgiving. Small it may be but a victory to me none the less. As I have said, I have a history of cutting calories way back and then bingeing. Well the holidays are no different. This past Thanksgiving was the first holiday, in a while, that I actually didn’t do that. I have remained consistent with my calorie intake for several weeks now and I did through Thanksgiving as well. I will tell you that I didn’t make the best choices each day and I know I didn’t drink enough water but I did not mess up my calories. So guess what? My weight didn’t change!! I went over my carbs two days and believe me I have paid for that in puffiness but not fluctuating up and down was a relief. I was able to eat and not fear that every morsel of food I put in my mouth was going to show up on the scale the next day. In my past, those couple of bad choices would have been horrifying to see on the scale and overcome. There is that temptation now and then to go for that quick weight loss fix and cut back but I haven’t done it. Low calorie is so much easier for me. Weight loss the unhealthy way is so much easier but I do know it’s not something that can be done long-term. These last few months trying to take advice from Tony has been difficult to say the least. Giving up my diet method has been stupid hard. Clearly, cause months later I still struggle. I remember all the words and advice he has given me the last several months, it makes so much sense. So here I sit the beginning of December and I am just now sticking to a plan. Seems like something I should have picked up on weeks ago right? Not my hard head! I’m positive though and I know I have to be consistent with my diet to see the success I want. I’m eating, I’m going to the gym and I’m working out at home.
Side note, in one month I will have been blogging for one year. I know the last several months I have fallen off a bit. That pretty much co-insides with me learning how to diet properly. Haha, but its true!!! So with one year approaching, I have decided to take this month by month. I know I have been blogging that way already but I mean in terms of keeping my blog. I have a self-hosted site so I pay to run my blog and keep my domain name. Gonna go with that for now. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!!
