Weathered the Storm

Well, I made it through Christmas without binging and indulging to terribly.  I remember the days when I didn't think about what I was eating, having no accountability to myself and I'd eat whatever I wanted when I wanted; not this time!

My Mom cooked low fat dinners and lunches while my sister-in-law baked low fat deserts!  I was thrilled to pieces!  I didn't feel guilty after eating a little more than I should have I knew I would be back home soon enough to get back on my eating schedule.

I was proud of myself yesterday because I weathered the snow and ran 3 miles in it.  It would have been so easy not to workout while on vacation, but I would have been really down on myself.  So, its done for another year and time to get back on schedule!

What did you do on your vacation that made you proud of yourself?


  1. Congrats! Even though I don't have the same temptations as a lot of people do, I did manage to get in over 16 miles in 4 days when I didn't really wanna!

  2. Way to go Sheri! Sounds like you were right on plan anyway!

  3. @Auntie Mandy Wow, 16 miles!! That is great Mandy! Sounds like you are a very focused person, good for you!

  4. @Jody - Fit at 53 Thanks Jody, I certainly tried, but to be honest not as hard as the last 2 Christmas's. I have more confidence in myself now and know I'll always return to the healthy eating and fitness regimen.

  5. I am proud for only going overboard with sugar and not with all foods. I'm proud for being more reflective and analytical and understanding of myself this year. It's a very good feeling.

  6. What made me proud through the holiday season is that I did not gain nearly as much weight as in the past through this time of year. Instead I ate healthy, had 3 or 4 treats (not 3-4 a day like in the past) and still exercised throughout this time. That is what made me proud this holiday season :)
