Thursday morning I woke up and this is what we saw: snow! It doesn’t snow here very often so it’s kind of special. However I’m already bored with it. I’m not a snow person. And besides snowing it’s really cold also, something else we’re not used to.
Today, looking from my bedroom window:
Well I have to admit that I was paying less attention to my eating and exercising with the excuse that it’s the holiday season. I didn’t count Points on Thursday and Friday and I can tell you I ate too much. I thought well I’ll try to maintain and see on January 2nd how I did. But then yesterday something happened.
I had a Christmas lunch at work where I didn’t eat too much and skipped the dessert buffet. I was wearing one of my new dresses with my high heels of 10 cm (4 inches). First I was talking to a female co-worker of mine who said that she has took a picture of my back. So I said to her that that wasn’t very flattering. No, no she said, I took the picture because your back is beautiful, your body line is perfect. I blushed and thanked her for the compliment.
Later I was talking to a guy between 20 and 30 years old and he told me that he and some others had been talking about me. So I asked why they were talking about me. Well they were amazed by my legs how long and perfect they were. And so I blushed for the second time.
I was so happy with all the compliments (got a lot on the dress too) and I told R. about it when I got home. I told him that he might not see that I lose weight but others do. He sees me everyday and I lose slowly so it’s difficult for him to see the change. He than told me that he was looking at pictures of us from 2 years ago in Barcelona and that he could see from that picture and how I look today that I did lose weight.
All these things together made me think: I WON’T GIVE UP! I’ve worked so hard this past few months and I won’t gain it all back due to some holidays. So I still try to maintain the weight, I don’t have to lose these last two weeks but I will keep tracking my food (except for the 2 Christmas Days and New Year’s eve and day) and I will workout as much as I can.
I’ve got inspired by Jill from Finishing is winning who made a workout goal plan for 2010. I’m going to make that too and will post that before New Year.
And last but not least: I’ve got a Christmas bonus at work so I’m definitely going to buy the Garmin Forerunner 305 this week.
No exercise on Thursday, couldn’t run due to the snow and didn’t feel like doing something else.
Yesterday no exercise either but this morning I went to the gym and did a Matt Roberts workout for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
The Ultimate Diet Log:
By the numbers: 6: Number of weeks humans can survive without food. 7: Number of days we can survive without water, our most important nutrient.
Nutrition tip: To save time, make nutritious foods in double batches. Grill extra vegetables and refrigerate them for use later as a pizza topping, omelet filler, or sandwich layer. Use the black beans from tonight’s chilli for tomorrow’s salad or soup.
Had a great workout today.
