I didn't waste any time after Thanksgiving to start busting out the Christmas stuff! I always get a real tree every year and I went and picked one out yesterday. I got all of my Christmas decorations out and am still going through things/decorating! I decided to go with all blue lights this year. I got in on a dirty sale yesterday and scored big on my lights and new topper! All in all I saved $80! I was so pumped.
I have been having a hard time getting back into the groove of things after Thanksgiving. I am forcing myself to do a workout tonight in the basement and not put it off like I have been all weekend. But hey, who doesn't have a hard time with weight-loss around this time of year. I have been very careful this year. I didn't gorge myself like last year and I didn't even finish what was on my plate on Thanksgiving. After having cooked and smelled dinner all day I didn't have much of an appetite by the time it came to sit down and eat. I also got rid of my leftovers ASAP! Turkey is ok, but as it goes for the rest of the food I didn't want it hanging around here because I know I would have been tempted! I think I gained 15 or so pounds last year from Thanksgiving/Christmas if I remember correctly. I am NOT letting that happen again!
Other than that I have been doing well! I am going to be getting my monthly visitor soon so it has been extra hard for me lately to get up and go! I just have to keep thinking of the DR.OZ show and let that motivate me further! I am not physically going to be on the show (though that would be awesome) BUT just the whole situation is so cool and it really propels me into a positive direction! (How could it not?!) I am still waiting to hear back with an air date/time. It is driving me nuts! I sent out an e-mail earlier today inquiring about my paperwork I sent back so we will see. I'm not expecting a reply back today because it is Sunday. Keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow but I will let you all know as soon as I find out anything!
