It's been a while, I know. I have been meaning to update, but time was not always been on my side. That, or else I was just too lazy.
Tuesday, nine days before Christmas, I decided that it was time to give in to the holiday treats. I didn't overindulge at work, mostly. There was food, but a lot was real food and I mostly stayed away from the candy and other treats or limited my intake. Until Chrismas. Then I ate it all. All the treats I craved, all my favorites. I tell you, PMS at Christmas couldn't be better timing for indulging your cravings! I had full intensions of returning to my journey on January 5th. Then, I got sick.
Do you know that saying "feed a cold"? Well, when I'm getting a cold, or have a cold, I am constantly hungry. Even when I get to the point of not being able to taste stuff, I still want to eat. So January 5th passed and I still hadn't got back to my journey. AND I was going to Vegas the next week.
It gets worse. I joined Chris and Heidi Powell's Dietbet and I had to lose seven pounds by February 1st. BUT I went to Vegas!
With the food and the alcohol, I now have ten pounds to lose by February 1st. WHAT WAS I THINKING?!? I am sure that some of that extra weight is water retention from all the dining out we did. I know my stomach was unhappy a lot of the time. There was also a bit of drinking going on which can also cause water retention. As you can see below, there was a lot of calorie burning too.
