Well Christmas week has come and gone. I have eaten myself stupid; piled my plate high, munched nuts, chocolates and other goodies while slurping too much alcohol. Weight loss has not been at the forefront of my mind while I enjoyed the festive foods, and as a result I was nervous to get on the scales today. I felt pretty pants to see a 2lb gain on my scales, but it’s to be expected after my eating and drinking marathon this week.
We did all go for a nice boxing day walk though, so I have got in a little exercise, but dog agility training is finished now until April for me, so my usual twice weekly running about is no longer. I’m going to have to focus more on my food intake because of the lack of exercise happening now, that will be hard, especially as I’ve let go so much over Christmas.
I’m trying not to be too hard on myself until the New Year, then I can start afresh and focus on dropping those pounds that I’ve gained this month…hopefully!
Who else is cracking on with some healthy eating and healthier lifestyles in the New Year? Are you trying to make long-term changes like I am? Or are you trying another way?
