Stevia-laced coffee and a healthy bowl of Fiber One cereal; this is my usual morning. However for the past three wake-ups, holiday elves (let’s blame it on them) have been treating me to slices of pie or Christmas cookies and a lovely coffee topped with whipped cream. Those silly “elves” have also been sabotaging my other meals, too, and “forcing” me to eat Christmas dinner leftovers. Yesterday, I called their bluff and took the leftovers to my daughter’s house.
The good news is, that three days of feasting hasn’t taken much of a toll on my progress or success. I decided to not give myself any restrictions this holiday. Restrictions make you feel like you’ve failed when a sugar cookie “accidentally falls into your mouth. Truth be told, given carte blanche in the kitchen actually helped me this season. I can’t pack it in like I used to, and didn’t really end up eating the copious amounts of food that I thought I would. It takes the consumption of 3,500 calories to gain a pound. Fortunately, a health metabolism burns those calories, and as of this morning, I only weigh 133 lbs. Holiday victory is still mine!
Today, it’s back to the gym and “so long” to sugar! Will I indulge on New Year’s Eve? Of course!
Speaking of New Year’s, I began working on my new list of goals for 2015 last night. 2014 was such an amazing year that I expect 2015 to be even better! So far, I hope to:
- Find an awesome job
- Rid myself of debt
- Get physically stronger
- Create my crafting business
So what about you, dear readers? Did you thoroughly enjoy your holiday treats? Have you made any goals for 2015? Tell me about it! 🙂
