A few weeks ago, the Today Show had a segment on keeping holiday weight gain at bay. They said the average person typically gains about 7lbs between Thanksgiving and New Year's. I gained 9! What can I say, I am an over-achiever. This time of year is not for eating carrots.
When the calendar changed to January 1st, my give a damn came back (like it does every year). I have been religiously tracking my food and making exercise a priority. I have done 2 runs and a strength workout. I even ran outside on New Year's Day in the subzero weather.
I have challenged my self to make it one month to follow Weight Watchers without falling off the program. As long as I don't go over my allowance and follow the 8 heathy guidlines I am in the running.
So far 2008 is off to a good start.
