Yes I was brave, the day after the Christmas week ends and weighed in….yep I gained…oh my what a surprise, said with sarcasm dripping from my lips….all I have done is eat this week…I did leave a lot of the sweets alone with the exception of popcorn, I found a bag, at Oliver’s market, somewhat like a our counties equivalent to a Whole Foods market…of this most delicious popcorn, sea salt over ganache chocolate dribbled over popcorn clusters held together with a smidgen of caramel….Oh My!, said with a quivering lip…. is it good!!!….its only 140 cal per serving, so it says on the front of the bag, oh you ask, what’s a serving?….I never looked….it was my drug of choice for the week…LOL I can’t even tell you the name of it other than its written in pink shiny letters on a white bag….LOL I don’t think I want to look at popcorn for another year….of course I am lying blatantly to you all…LOL so back to the weigh in….last week I had held my own, gained nothing lost nothing…this week, well lets just day I am up….6#’s…..AHHHHH what have I done!!! So I have recommitted this morning to my 1000 calorie limit for each day, with the exception on Wednesday….I have lunch at the Tea House with my girls, then dinner at my son’s in-laws….I will definitely watch what I eat but I am not sure about 1000 calorie quota…and Friday the 1st is my birthday….I will be going to Star Wars…and you know I will be eating popcorn there….can’t see that movie without popcorn…I already have committed to a pool session tomorrow with my niece so I will get a good 40 minutes of jogging in there, I may even try to get there today, but we have plans to pack the RV and deal with the stacks of boxes in the garage…that in its self will be a good work out as I also have a stack of stuff at the bottom of the stairs waiting to go up….
So there you have it….did I over indulge all week…apparently so….am I sorry….nope…it was all done out in the open, I didn’t sneak any food, or hide it to eat later….it was a week of merriment with family, friends, and pure bliss of the holidays…..I will just have to work that much harder to get back down to where I was….I am just hoping I didn’t screw up my A1C test with my foolish eating ……
Well the sun is up here and the frost is melting, my second cup of coffee is empty so I am taking that as a sign to get up off my butt and get moving…LOL
Welcome to the New Years Week…..may the festivities continue….kat
