The Holidays

It's that time of year. We put up the Christmas tree and decorations yesterday, and it is so cozy and festive in the family room. Sophie loves it, and I really do to.

Food wise I am a complete mess. So too with exercise. Only once or twice a week do I manage to get any walking/running in. My shin is so sore from Thursday's walk/run that I can't imagine working out on it again until it heals. The scale is finally going up, too, to reflect my behavior. I've really got to get it under control before I grow out of my clothes again.

It's that time of year. When I'm stressed, emotional, busy busy busy, and should be nothing but happy. I will take it a day at a time for now, and figure out how to make it back to a healthy way of life. Maybe after the holidays....

Laura, good to see you.

At least you are continuing to run. But it sounds like you should do something different because of the shin problems. Don't let an injury keep you from not doing any exercise.

You have been very successful and frankly, I've been thinking all summer long, if I can get to close to Laura's weight, maybe I can run one day. (And then my knees reach up, smack my face and say, "think again, Einstein.")

You know, my #1 problem was succinctly identified by Jon (That Guy). He said, "You let your emotions get control over your intellect." I struggle with this every day. I just got sad writing something to the Shrinking Knitter's post for goodness' sake. So I can identify with what you're saying. OTOH, you, me and everyone else on this blog have an incredible intellect and smarts and it would be stupid to let our emotions trump this and cause us to regain our weight.

Please write back either here or offline and tell us how you're doing.

XOXO Lori
And now I'm going to get dressed and go to the gym b/c I don't want to sit here and be even a little bit down.
