    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.
