Happy 2017!

It's a new year!  A clean slate.  A great time to reevaluate goals and how to best achieve them.  I really don't think setting resolutions work.  It's unnecessary pressure.  So, let's use the word commitment.  Unless you're have commitment phobia.  

I really enjoyed the holidays.  I know too much because I can feel it.  It's not just my pants are a little snug, but in general I just didn't feel "good".  Sure I still exercised as much as I could.  But, I ate foods I said goodbye to a long time ago.  I fell face first into a bag of my favorite potato chips.  I sucked down a peppermint milkshake from Chick-Fil-A without batting an eye.  I didn't say "no" to much.  I drank more adult beverages than I have in a long time.  In other words, I gave into the holiday spirit.  And now it's time to change my ways and recommit.

True confession time - I didn't track.  At all.  Mostly because I was lazy but also because I felt guilty about what I was eating/drinking. And honestly most of the time I didn't care.  Even though I KNEW I was losing control and was possibly getting farther away from my goal. I was kind of glad to miss WW last weekend because I know it's going to be u-g-l-y.  

I am SO fortunate to have so many good friends and my family to support me.  I couldn't do it without them.  

I am now tracking everything (good and bad).  I am exercising.  I am going to really TRY to get at least closer to my goal weight by my birthday. 84 more days!

Let's do this!
