Okay, you all know I've been away on holidays. Unfortunately, I was also on hiatus from caring about my weight. I think we all need that once in a while. I was staying at place with a pool, so once or twice a day I would swim laps for 25-30 minutes, but it still didn't counteract all those rich holiday foods available to tempt me. I was weak, and now I am realising how much it isn't worth it.
I don't want to post my weight. I was pretty upset stepping on the scale this morning - January 1st 2010. I can't believe I gained that much in only one week! So instead of posting the exact number, I will work my butt off and let you know when I get back down to my previous 144 lbs. I hope it is soon so I don't have to keep you waiting.
The sad part is that all the work that lays ahead of me in the next week (or two or three) could have been work towards a new low weight instead of getting back to where I should be. That's sad. Was all that yummy food worth it? I doubt it. I should have used a lot more restraint. But what's done is done.
What's even sadder is that I wasn't out of control eating - most of the excess calories came from a liquid source - beer. That is why I'm declaring January my Alcohol Free month.
