Time to fire that scale

How many times have I had to change the battery in that hateful little sucker this year?  I was informed at doctor's office yesterday that I weigh 198 pounds fully clothed.  What does the scale at home say with me buck naked? 208.  Uh right.  10 pound discrepency there. Epic fail and so fired lol!

What are you serving for your Christmas dinner?

What used to be a traditional Christmas dinner doesn't have to be full of fat calories and carbs when you can serve healthier options that will leave you full and satisfied.  Just remember to use GrapeOla, herbs and spices, sea salt, ground flax seed and wheat germ where you can instead of all that butter and table salt and lard.  You will be happier and your waistline will thank you.

And Here We Go

13 days until Christmas.  How do you cope with holiday weight gain? 

I go ahead and indulge in a taste or two or just nibble while keeping in mind that those delectable holiday goodies are laden with tons of calories.  I carefully pick and choose my 'poison'.

If you over indulge, don't worry too much.  Enjoy yourself.  Enjoy your family and friends and co-workers.  January is the time to re-focus your healthy lifestyle, shed some pounds, and gain new perspective on what you want out of your life. 

Now, I'm not saying eat everything in sight.  Think about it.  That's completely defeating your purpose.  I'm saying enjoy yourself.

Nor do I support making new years resolutions, I'm saying re-focus.  My resolution is no resolution.  You set yourself up to fail when you resolve to do something without a plan on how to get there.  A resolution is not a plan of any kind, it's a wish.  Usually an unrealistic one.

Now onto some personal news.  Damn it I'm back at 208.  Yesterday was the first time I felt like working out since I became sick last month and I couldn't even make it through the first 20 minutes of Pilates for ANY Body. That used to be my easy workout.  Nor could I make it through Aerobic Striptease warm up and THAT IS AN EASY WORKOUT!!!!  My heart just couldn't take the deliberate upswing in activity.

I know I need to ease back into it, but you'd think I could still handle the easy things. Even walking across the store at work has become a trial. Sigh.

How's everyone else doing?

I had hoped to hostess some kind of give away and contest this month but that's not possible with my health issues.  I just don't feel up to it.  So I'm going to set a tentative contest/giveaway thing in January.  So keep tuned in.

Happy healthy safe Holiday Greetings to you all.
