Merry Christmas.......



I have been LAZY this week, I am almost to embarrassed to tell you all just how lazy.... I ran a little on Monday and then lifted.... yep, that is it. So tomorrow I am lifting for another hour and then running 5. Saturday will be an easy 10 miler. I was hoping to skim through the Holidays with no weight gained...... nope.... I have gained a few and I am sick about it. At first I thought I would wait till Jan 1st, you know, new years resolutions and all that good stuff. I decided today after looking at myself in the mirror, that I need to start now, today. No more Christmas goodies and no more sugar. I have the biggest sweet teeth of anyone I know, except my 3 year old and she got it from me. I also have a weakness for Diet Pepsi. I love it. I drink WAY to much of it, and as soon as the 6 cans that are in my fridge are gone...... no more. I have always known this but not really thought or cared to much about it, but Jillian from the Biggest Loser put it best..... "If it doesn't have a mom, or grow in the ground or a tree, then DON'T eat it". So that is it, I am watching my portions and making better choices starting right now. My oldest will be 8 in March and we have some family coming to Kentucky for her baptism (we are Mormon) and I want to look and feel my best. Right now I don't, but I am going to change that.

So with training and making the best choices in the kitchen, I am hopeful I will be a hot momma by the end of March. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my sad little (chubby) mind.

Wishing you all a Merry and HEALTHY Christmas weekend.

This time of year it is just hard to stay on track! You are strong, and you will have no problem getting back to where you want to be. You inspire me to run harder! Good luck and have a Happy New Year...

You are already a hot mama, but I know you can be even hotter. I like the quote from Jillian - need to remind myaelf of that sometimes!

RunnerMom said...

I'm sure both of our weight gains are just water weight, right?

I like the breezy comment---"an easy ten miler." Easy? For you, maybe!

Come to Tennessee and run with me!! Actually, I'm pretty sure I couldn't keep up. :-(

I have avoided my scale lately, I am likely in the same boat. Hope you had a great Christmas and Happy New Year!

Is diet pepsi really bad for you? I used to be a mountain-dew-aholic and transitioned to a diet-mountain-dew-aholic because of the calories! I have been an extreme BUM as well. Hope the "easy" 10-miler went well!

I agree, you are totally a hot mama. this time of year is killer...I think I need to adopt your no crap food policy.

I am also a Diet Coke addict and have sworn off it many, many times. I loved the line you put in from Jillian - it might even convince me! Maybe?
