Start a New Year as You Mean to Go ON! January 1, 2010

    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.

    I loved this post. And could so relate. I’ve found that when I give myself a day or two to recover from the holidays, the scale isn’t so bad. Learning that that number can be a bit fickle is something I still struggle with.

    Sounds like you had an amazing end to 2009 and start to 2010. Looking forward to hearing more (and seeing you more) in the coming year.

    Glad you had a great vacation. And keep up the good job of staying in shape. I think you look fabulous! And yes…enjoying life is what it’s all about!

  4. Way to start off the year with a positive attitude!!! Unfortunately, I had to buy a size bigger pants last week….whoops! Looks like I have my work cut out for me in 2010. I’m not going to beat myself up about it, I’m just going to DO SOMETHING about it!!! My main motivator is that Rach will be graduating, and I’m sure there will be pictures. Lord help me!!

    Deanna….as usual, schedules conflicted and I missed out on wine club (Jeff left town to hunt, I had double daughter duty!)
    Angie… You always look marvelous, so maybe it was the brand name, NOT the size!
