Winter slim-down week 7

Aaaahhh, indulgence. The theme of this past week. Today I approached the scale. Seems like my ‘go with what you’ve got available’ theory didn’t exactly work out as I had planned. More than 1 kg regained (about 2 lbs), but it’s actually not that much considering it’s the holiday season. So no guilt, no frustration here.

Speaking of holidays; I’ve made an executive decision. Since I started this, like the week of Halloween and All Saints’ Day – and managed to torture myself through a candy free Octobers’ end…I’ve decided that it’s just not worth the extra holiday stress of worrying about everything I do or do not put in my mouth. We all look like fat Barbie by 2nd January anyway. Am I right?

So, the plan is to just roll with it (no pun intended) and enjoy the holidays and all the holiday goodies that accompany the seasons festivities – within reason. I’ll just have to put in that much extra cardio to counteract the effects of my free-range, sugar laden, carb-filled, creme soaked and wine washed holiday diet. 😉 I also invested in a pair of sweatpants for those Netflix nights in…just in case.  (Only for use when the only person staring at me is the one in the mirror.)

Starting at New Year’s, I plan to first retake all my measurements, then… restart the diet if need-be. Fingers crossed that I can manage at least some semblance of upkeep without having to start from the beginning again.  Such as it goes with a lifestyle change for a diet, as opposed to a crash diet. Oh! And I forgot to tell you that I DID manage to make some home cooked food. I made a ton of cabbage casserole, and it turned out great! I’ll post the recipe this week…promise!

What are your weight loss goals or gains this holiday season?

Thanks for reading!
