So this was my first holiday season after surgery. It was pretty uneventful, I did graze more than I should of and partake of things I wouldnt normally of but didn't go crazy and stayed conscious of being "FULL".
I still baked and cooked for with all 17 of my Italian family members, but I did alot more "can I get you some more Lasagna or Spedini" than eating. So I lived vicariously through their stomachs. I had a couple of drinks here and there while at various functions, but only a lil over doing it Christmas Eve.
I didn't gain anything and might of lost a pound or two so it was a success as far as eating goes.
Where I failed miserably, which wasn't a hug shock to me, was in exercising. This is the worst time of the year for me, November, December, January. I get all SAD and cranky and lazy. Add that with the fact that work has just kicked my ass, I was doomed.
So I signed up for a Tai Chi class over the next 6 weeks and am back on my protein shakes so I can bring in the year 1 mark with a bang. Laine also told me that we are going on vacation in February even if he has to call my Director and tell him so, someplace warm I hope with sunshine.
How did you all do, physically and mentally?
