Indulgent Christmas Weekend

Saturday December 12 I did go to WW to learn about the new SmartPoints. I had lost almost 4 lbs that week!! I was so the normal leader wasn't there - the sub was the leader we had had at Work in the past and I am not a big fan.

All Saturday afternoon was spent at a friend's holiday party. I tried to eat okay, but it really wasn't easy. I had a couple of glasses of wine early in the afternoon, but then changed to water because I thought I would be running the next day.

Sunday I had hoped to do 7 miles on my own starting at 6:30 am - We had to leave the house by 9:00 and I needed to shower and get all dressed up, so I knew I was cutting it really close. I woke up at 5:30 and just kept waiting for it to get light enough. The weekend before I had run with my group at 6:30 and felt like it was doable to do on my own. But the 7 days seemed to make a difference and with it being cloudy there was just no light. I didn't feel comfortable doing it on my own, so I bagged it. I could have started later and gone less miles, but I had it in my mind what I wanted to do and I didn't want to change it - need to work on that!

We went to the Boston POPs Christmas concert - it was so much fun. We got food at the event and then went out for a late lunch after. None of it was healthy!

During the week there was a lot of baking done and dinners were pretty disorganized.

I had every intention of going to WW on Saturday, but we just had way too much to do, so Friday night I decided I would skip it. I hated doing it, but it made our Saturday run much more smoothly.

We finally told the kids about our cruise in April, then went to see Star Wars, and then went out to a Japense Hibachi place for dinner. Nothing healthy about it!

Sunday I was supposed to do a holiday 5K with my running group, but my daughter woke up at 4 am with a sick stomach so I was up for 2 hours and exhausted, so went back to sleep and skipped the race. That is my story of 2015 - I think I have had to skip more races/races cancelled (for a variety of reasons: weather, Dad's death, me being sick, kids being sick) than I actually ran :(

Sunday was more poor eating. I am really going to try to eat better the next 3 days so I can enjoy Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and then get back on track - no waiting until New Year's - though our New Year's Eve is not healthy!
