2012 = Not being so hard on myself!
Sunday, January 01, 2012
So, I've had a pretty good start and new years eve rears it's ugly head.
I went out of my way to find a low calorie white wine and stocked up
on soda water. However the problem isn't really how many calories are in the glass
but more so how many of them you have.
I decided to stay home this year because I rained cats and dogs all day on new years eve and the roads were seriously wet. I just didn't want to risk it. There'll
be other parties. By around 10pm I'd had about 4 spritzers and by midnight I'd work my way up to 7. 700 totally useless calories. I wanted to kick myself when I got up this morning.
But then my mom sat me down and reminded me that this lifestyle change
of mine shouldn't feel like a prison sentence that I can rush through and get out of on good behavior. It's a lifetime plan.
So with a new spring in my step and a better attitude about everything (at least I avoided the urge to make myself feel better with a large helping of brownies) I'm confident that I can face the coming week with the same drive and motivation that I had last week.
I hope you all had lovely evenings and you aren't beating your heads against a wall cause you took a body shot of tequila or shared your milk with fluffles while you nursed a white russian.
Much love, hugs and support.
2012 doesn't know what it's getting itself into!
