I still haven't made it back to the gym, but I don't feel bad about it. I'm enjoying the rest. I'm still not 100% and add on top of that all the hustle and bustle of the holidays and well. My workouts have suffered. But - as I said I don't feel bad about it.
Food yesterday was Great! I did not eat a single thing that wasn't on my plan. Yes I passed up the brownies and cookies that the building management company sent down. And the candy canes that the receptionist brought to everyone's desk. AND while out shopping I refused to eat at the outlet mall 'food court' because I wasn't going to make my sacrifices moot by having crappy buffett style chinese food or a slice of 'pizza under the lights'.
Today's food will be just as good. I didn't have time to make a new plan last night, but yesterday's plan was good enough I can reuse it.
I just keep reminding myself, "it'll all be over sooon..." lol
seriously I'm enjoying the holidays even without the food indulgences, and I haven't seen anything yet that I haven't seen/eaten before. If I did - THEN it might be an excuse to splurge.
I wanted to add one last thing. I'm reading through the "Thin Commandments" again. As I've said before, I know what I should do, it's just wrapping my brain and psyci around doing it and this book helps. Anyway - I found this little blurb that lifted my spirits a little.
"No matter how many times you failed in the past, and regardless of all the setbacks, remember that you have never given up. You have always held on to that desire for success. And how strong and powerful that desire must be!"
