Getting Back in the Mood

Happy December 1st!

I'm happy now anyway.... :P

I wasted my morning creating blog backgrounds for this and my family blog. Creating didn't take as long as uploading and getting them to work properly. argh...

I ended up rushing my lunch and then flying around the house getting chores done. I wasn't going to exercise, but then I said to myself...

"Self, you need to do something. Yes, you wasted a morning and you are frustrated that you don't have time to get to the gym. But you can pull out a dvd and exercise for 30 minutes. You're committing to four days a week and this is only your second workout this week so far."

So, I did.

My eating and exercising has been in "vacation mode" lately, which has a lot to do with Thanksgiving visitors and TOM, but today I decided it's time to get back with the program. No complaining. I have been careful about my eats today, got that workout in and accepted the past week for what it is.

You'll see on the left side of my blog a little holiday-flavored reminder to not give up. Yep, because I'm not giving up on my weight loss journey over the holidays. I'd say that if I maintain this month I'd be happy, but really I'm not sure if I'm ready to settle for that.

Tomorrow is the last day of our Throwdown Challenge, so check back and see if I managed to keep my lead or if Barb caught up to me. :)
