Weigh-in Wednesday – The Perfect Storm

It’s check in time…again.

I must say that since the end of August I’ve been keeping up with my elliptical and I started adding in some free weight routines. Things were going well. I’d dropped 10 pounds…

And then the perfect storm hit last week…

What was that you ask?

It was the combination of Thanksgiving, an early Christmas (with the whole family around all week and eating out…a lot!) and a pressing book deadline. Yikes!

The diet and exercise took a hike for the week. And I didn’t beat myself up over it. There’s only so much I can do. So instead I enjoyed myself—guilt free.

And what am I doing this week?

Staying away from the scale. I’ll catch up with it next week. I don’t want to be defeated when I’ve just climbed back on the Weight Watcher’s wagon.

I’m also getting back to my daily exercise and sorting out the goodies in the fridge so I can be good on my diet.

And how about you? How do you handle big family events/holidays?
