Weigh-In … Enjoying Myself

Today’s Weight: 167.0
Loss/Gain:  +1.5
So…my scale has been down the past couple days and then I gained two pounds last night.  Um…whatever.
This week has been busy, but not as crazy as last week and I’m grateful for that.  I’ve been enjoying getting some wrapping done and last night I got some baking done.  No, I did not eat two pounds worth of fudge and cinnamon roasted pecans.  lol
Anyway, so I’m not sure why the scale decided to jump today, but it is what it is.
I’ve had three days of great workouts and drank 64 oz of water daily.  I have not tracked my food, but instead tried to make good choices and eat more like weight loss portions.
Over the past week I’ve wondered a few times if I’ll ever be a person who reaches for veggies and hummus instead of bread and cheese.  Hhhmm…not sure, but definitely something I’m going to work on in 2013.
I can say that I do find myself eating less than I ever did before during the holidays.  I’m much more aware of how much I’m eating, as in feeling full and learning I’m done.  I am also reminded that my body prefers less greasy foods – read: unsettled stomach after heavier meals.  blech.
So, while I shall once again not be the gold medalist of healthy eating at Christmastime I can say one thing…I am a new Leah with regards to the holidays.  I am learning to enjoy the memorable moments and not just how much extra food I get to eat.
Speaking of moments…I need to go get ready for a puppet performance my children and I are in this afternoon.  We are performing a puppet Christmas play with our church puppet team on the military base during a family fun event.  Joy!
Have a great weekend.  I hope you have fun getting the last minute items checked off your to-do lists and can find some time to relax too.
