This past week I was bad. Really bad. We vacationed in Nags Head, NC for several days while the hubby went swan, goose, and duck hunting…..and I ate. And drank. And shopped. And ate some more. And drank. And drank. And drank….you get the picture.
Now I have to pay the piper. I will not get on the scale, because I don’t want my self worth to be measured by some stupid number that pops up and crushes my ego. Who weighs themselves after the week I’ve enjoyed? Only a sado-masochist would. I will not even post how many glasses of wine or raspberry cosmos I consumed. And they were DARN good.
Suffice it to say that I indulged a bit too much. But I had fun. And isn’t that what life is all about? Finding a balance between having fun (within limits) and a healthful lifestyle. I know I am not able to eat/drink like this all the time. But I will not regret a great week, with great friends, at a great place.
Today we begin a new year….2010. I reflected on this past year. What I did well, what I did….not so well. And the thing I see is that I really didn’t eat or drink horribly ALL the time, but I really could have worked out a bit more by the end of the year. I DID kind of let my workouts slide due to the job (an excuse). So today, I pulled out the workout wear, slipped in a power yoga dvd, and got my groove on.
Tonight’s dinner is chicken breasts, onions, garlic, herbs, carrots, peppers, and mushrooms, sealed in aluminum foil and baked. We’ll have a little rice with it, and yeah, even a glass of vino. But yoga in the morning, and a healthy dinner at night? Yeah, I can live with that. Start your year off right, and continue as you mean to go on. That’s my new mantra.
