So every year, I am an one of those who has kind of said 'screw' it during the holidays and particularly the week between Christmas and New Year. I always thought it was practically inhumane to expect a person to say no to so much especially since it is just once a year. Well this year I vowed to be different, I stuck (with a single exception) to no Egg Nog Lattes, I did no baking, no eating other people's baked goods, and basically stuck to my eating plan. Tina and I even committed to extra workouts and have been trying to get double workouts in a few times a week.
Usually on Christmas Eve I would have egg nog in my coffee, enjoy a quiet morning and then begin my cooking (and snacking). This year we went to a local trail at 8:00AM (lots of up and down's) and walked for three hours and over 9 miles!
Where I usually gain weight between Thanksgiving and New Year, I lost 11 pounds in that time period! Yay me!
By Gorge I think I might just be getting this...finally!
Just for fun attaching a before from Christmas Eve 2008 and the now Christmas Eve 2010
