It's Over!

Another Christmas is in the books. I can relax a little, let my guard down and know that I no longer have to ride the "It's the holidays and I can eat anything I want, because it is" monster, anymore. New Year's Eve doesn't count. We are such party animals on that night. I always have soup and toast for dinner that night, we watch the ball drop in New York and we are all out like lights, snoring, long before Midnight, local time. So no worries, there. lol

I finished yesterday at 1900 calories and four+ quarts of water down. I intended to land in a lower calorie range. I allowed myself to snack a bit and forgot to log as I did and the pretzels got a little out of hand.  That big mug of sugar free cocoa doctored with some fat free 1/2 and 1/2 and a little Redi-Whip didn't help. :P




Moving on,

I love my Christmas decorations and never take them down before New Year but today I have the insane urge to get it all down and put away. I won't, but I might do it on Wednesday. Pookey is off and can help me haul containers up and down and I can have everything but the outdoor lights down and packed away before Willy Dog gets home from work that day. Then next weekend, I can just concentrate on the Big Mid Winter Clean and Rearrange and  not worry about taking down decorations, too. Something to think about.

I am mildly sore from yesterday's walk, but not too bad. I expected worse, considering how much I haven't been walking, lately. And I am pleased at how well I did, yesterday and how great I feel, today. I need to get out again, today. If Willy Dog's foot is hurting him too much, I'll just go by myself. Sissy girl, has a widdle blister.

I am so cold hearted. :P

Okay, I have to run. My water is making it's presence known in my bladder. I'll be back later to read any updated blogs.


  1. Glad you had a good day, Erika and I admire your tenaciousness in walking. I'm hoping Phase 4 of Allan's challenge will help me get into a regular exercise program. I have a perfectly good treadmill. I just can't seem to make myself use it on a regular basis. You are a good inspiration. :)

  2. I'm so proud of you for walking. Can I say THANK GOD it's over? Seriously - my tree was down by 10am...I couldn't get it down fast enough. Aren't I just a positive patty?

  3. I'm glad it's over too! Love your blog. I'm a newbie.

  4. Great job eating so well and taking the time to walk! Its so important to move our bodies while starting a new life in health!

    It took me awhile, but it just takes doing it to become addicted. I'm still at my Mom's for the holiday break and got out in the snow and ran 3 miles today. I felt great, mentally and physically.

    You can do it!

  5. So glad you had a good Christmas! Congrats on getting the family out for a walk around the lake, and also on that run! Sounds like your calories were really good too, and especially considering it was a holiday! :)
