Christmas...why do you betray me so?
I tried...really I did! After I came back from my trip I decided to get serious about losing weight. I am still 15 lbs. over were I was before little R came along. Soooo...I've been getting up every morning to exercise. I go to the little gym and walk on the treadmill or bike and we also just got Wii Fit (which is totally AWESOME by the way). I've been getting in some great workouts. I'm actually sore from it. And to help me lose the weight I wanted to change my diet as well. So I went out to WallyWorld and got a bunch of healthy foods. Yesterday was great. I had a yogurt for breakfast, a quesadilla and salad for lunch, a fruit strip for a snack, chicken and tater-tots with an apple for dinner, and then some carrots before bed. Great right? Yea well...all that went down the tubes today! Because what do people like to give you for Christmas...lovely Christmas treats like chocolate covered pretzels, oreo truffles, box of chocolate truffles, and cookies! I'm too ashamed to tell you how much I ate! I have this horrible addiction to sweets. I inherited that lovely trait from my father. We love our sweets. If there are sweets in the house we WILL eat them. I can find and sniff out sweets anywhere. And when I get a hold of them I eat and eat and eat till I feel sick. And even when I feel sick and never want sweets again...I will eat some more. If there are sweets I will eat them no matter what. I hate it! But there is nothing I can do except make sure I don't keeps sweets in the house. And I can do that...but not when people keep giving us some! I can't wait for the holiday season to be other just for that reason. It will be so much easier to lose the weight.
