Well I had a beautiful Christmas with my family. I have been baking cookies and other yumminess for a month and had heaps of different treats for husband and daughter. When you get Oooh! and Aaaah! at the moment you get the platter on the table you know you have done a great job! My daughter loved the look of everything but went straight for the chocolate covered strawberries and stock with her choice all the way loll. You can probably imagine how exited she got after ! It was so much fun to see her.
I treated myself as much as I wanted at Christmas eve and Christmas day too. I enjoyed the food and the fun. I ate as if I was never going to eat that food until next Christmas! Which is about right. loll
Now I am not going to lie, today on boxing day it was very difficult not to have any pastry when my daughter and husband were having some. I resisted as I know that it is harder because my body is kind of hooked on sugar again. Hopefully all of the pastries will disappear quickly and out of my thoughts for good.
Today I went back to my normal calorie counting and exercise routine. The exercise felt good and were easier to do than I expected. I think my body needed a break from it. Going back to a calorie limited diet feels harder now than it was when I started the whole thing but I will stick to it anyway because I really want those pounds off. I did not step on the scale yet but we will see the result of over-indulging Thursday with no regrets whatever the scale shows.
