Catching up....

Time for a check-in.  We got home from Disneyland on Tuesday evening.  We weren't scheduled to come home until Wednesday sometime, but we were ready to pack it in.  The kids were tired, we were tired and didn't have any desire to fight the crowds in the park or LA traffic Wednesday morning.  Good choice on our part I believe.  While we had a great time, I won't do the "on vacation during Christmas" thing again.  I really missed our normal Christmas routine and the family get-togethers. Lesson learned.
Since coming home I've struggled to get back on track. One part of it is having the hubs home.  I have a very difficult time when he's underfoot.  Throws me all off.  I am definitely ready for him to go back to work on Monday :)
Truthfully though, I am struggling with sugar again.  Broken record, right??  I know better.  I do. Blah. Yesterday was a terrible binge day.  I haven't had an out-of-control, free-for-all, shove-everything-in-your-face, make-cookies-so-you-can-eat-them type of day in a long time. I've had some less intense binge days, but this one was bad. Double Blah.
Since I can't change my behavior from yesterday, I just have to pick myself up and move forward.  Today is day one of sugar detox.  I need to make a trip to the grocery store and load up the fridge with a variety of leafy greens and other veggies. 
I am working on a list of new fitness goals and will share that in another post soon. Last time I weighed in (Thursday), the scale said 151.6 lbs.  Maintenance.  After yesterday's debacle I know the scale is WAY up.  I will not be weighing for a few days since I know a temporary up-tic in the scale will not help my mental state. 
Hope you all had a great Christmas! 
Are you setting any new goals for yourself? I'd love to hear what you're thinking. Please share!

Oh my gosh I know how you feel about having your husband home and staying on track. I don't know what it is about my hubs because he eats the same way I do. I think we just like to cook more elaborate things when he's home. I go through the same sugar thing. Sometimes it almost feels like I have to binge on sugar to fight an imbalance or something. It's strange. Sometimes it's the littlest bit of sugar that sets it off too. You seem to have great willpower and serious motivation so I'm sure you'll get back on track soon :)

I feel you! Yup. I do. Same thing in my household w/the sugar AND the husband-lol!

Happy New Year Tiffany - Here's to an absolute wonderful 2013!
