Indulge vs Overindulge????

I am unsure what tomorrow's weigh in will bring after being sick this week (I still am) and throwing Thanksgiving into the mix.  I have not stepped on the scale since last Monday.  But it is what it is and whatever number it shows I accept it.  I dont feel like I overindulged at all. I indulged as most people do on Thanksgiving, but I dont think I overindulged.  Does that make sense to anyone out there??  This was again, one of those eye opening, clicking, light bulb thoughts I had.  I had some pie and cheesecake, but small slices.  I tried to be careful of my portion sizes.  But come Wednesday I came down with a relentless chest cold and I havent exercised since. Unless you count constant coughing as exercise...because I will have lost significantly this week if I can count that!  hehe.

I am hoping to feel better in the morning.  At least well enough to make it to the gym.  I am going to try some new training techniques this week.  I feel good about having a structured routine instead of just feeling disorganized or unsure when it comes to weight training.  Thanks to Jamie for the info she sent me!! A personal trainer isnt an option for me right now so this really feels like a Godsend.   I really cant wait to get started.  I am going to add that onto my cardio and see where it takes me.  My measurement are already on file on the gym (an included service :) so I will check them again in a month or so.  I am so excited. 

Today's reason for losing weight:
*I noticed that since I have put some of the weight back on that my self confidence has slipped away.  I am finding that just the effort I am making is helping but I look forward to feeling more confident with time.

Today I am thankful for:
*sugar free jello.  Need I say more?

Thanks for your comment on my 100 lbs gone post :D !!

I am so happy to be where I am, having to buy a new wardrobe... that I'm not doing anything 'big.' I think there will be a large party at the end of this journey, where I'll do a Food Drive to collect 149 lbs of food from guests to have a visual of how much I've lost, and celebrate then!! I hope to be there by the middle/end of May.

As soon as I reach 199, I'll start to slowly start jog/walking ... and hopefully do a half-marathon in December of next year :-). Fitness goals have to be next, I think!!

Great that you did so well over the holiday... sorry you are sick (I was sick over the holiday too...! Hate when that happens!!), and hope you're feeling better :-)

Here's to a great month!
