Happy Boxing Day! I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas. :) The holiday season continues for me with a gathering at my MILs house. That means more food! Yayyy. Yesterday was actually pretty good for me. I went in determined not to snack my way into a ton of extra calories, and I think I succeeded. I did have a couple treats here and there, of course. I'm not insane! I had a small Nanaimo bar...mmmm. Then I tried an appie potsticker thing 'cause dinner was pushed back and I was so hungry. Pretty good. I had my dinner and tried to keep the portions normal. Piece of turkey, small blob of mashed potatoes, some carrots and corn. I had a small bun and some stuffing, too. Stuffing is my downfall. I luuuurve it. When I was done, I was a bit full, but not too bad. Dessert was Cherry Cream Cheese Cake- a family tradition. Had a small piece of that. Later I had a wee piece of fudge. I drank only water all night, too. Didn't eat any chips or cookies or any of the other stuff that was out. I did do the gum chewing thing. I think it helped.
The scale is up a teeny bit from two days ago, which isn't surprising. I did work out Christmas day, and I will work out later today as well. I got the Biggest Loser Bootcamp DVD from hubby. :) I liked the workout- well, level 1 at least. It seems a bit easy, but I did get out of breath, and felt my muscles got a workout. I may try level 2 today, or go back to Jillian.
I am going to continue my moderate approach to food today the the MILs. It's harder for this kind of function, since there will be no real meal served, just lots of appetizers. Eeep.
Still feeling good and strong here people! I almost forgot to mention...I received a ton of CHOCOLATE for Christmas. Poor hubby bought me some before I mentioned I didn't want to see any of it under the tree for me this year. Poor guy! He said he'd give it away to someone else. My MIL also gave me chocolate. Yikes. I am happy to say I have not eaten ONE piece. HA! Take that chocolate! I think I'll have Jason hide it on me and dole out one piece at a time. That should work. When faced with an open box of delicious chocolate, it's VERY hard to eat just one piece. I have to say though, right now I don't want anything really sugary. Hmmm. Weird. Must be that I've eaten more crap the last couple days than usual.
I'll let you know how today went tomorrow!
