Well here's the kicker...I've still lost 12 pounds so far!! That's right boys and girls! A few bad days is not getting me down. I picked back up today with Kenpo-x, and I plan on getting Cardio-x in sometime tomorrow morning before the parade starts and before I go chow down on some yummy Thanksgiving fare. I feel so much better about myself right now. After several days in a row of not working out at all, I could tell my mood was terrible and I was incredibly tired. I was taking it out on Gray and the cookies in the pantry. With just about an hour of dedicated time for myself, I have done a complete 180 from the last few days. It is amazing!
I was a little scared to step on the scale earlier because of those cookies, but thankfully my body and the scale knew I needed a pick-me-up! The number it displayed was definitely what I needed. I checked it 2 more times just to make sure the scale wasn't trying to fool me! I have not been my current weight in nearly 4 years!
Tomorrow is surely going to be a challenge. I love my family's cooking on any holiday. But Thanksgiving is definitely a stand out. With pumpkin pie, candied sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, creamed corn, homemade rolls....I could go on and on. I want it all! I just need to make sure I try little bits of everything, and not overeat! Luckily I will have my sister and her mother-in-law there as motivation. They have both lost weight recently and are major inspiration!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
