I was shocked when I stepped on the scale at the gym yesterday. Totally expected to gain a couple of pounds with all the Christmas prep.
You know, cookies and last minute take-out.
And possibly finding yourself ill-prepared at Walmart and your kid is sleeping in the cart so you grab a cheeseburger from McDonalds and devour it like you haven't seen food in days- that may or may not of happened to me in real life- but it is always a possibility. (wink)
But I guess all the running around has helped me.
I am getting back on track with my Nutrisystem food and trying to get to the gym as much as possible, but it is hard to.
With all the Christmas preparation, my house is lacking and sometimes it just makes more sense to stay home and catch up.
Also, the kids have a lot going on at school which takes up my time as well, but I thoroughly enjoy it.
So, my plans for battling the bulge this week as we approach Baby Jesus' birth?
1. Keep moving whether at the gym or at home or wherever.
2. I will not eat after dinner! Not worth the extra calories.
3. And I will not make too many of my favorites- cookies or meals- so I am not tempted to over-indulge.
How about you?
What are you doing to hold off the cravings?
