Boing, boing, boing...
Excuse #1. Last day of exercise was Saturday when I had my latest hive breakout. So I had not done any exercise of any kind since then. 5 whole days without earning a single activity point. I had not step foot inside the gym since December 3rd until tonight.
Excuse#2. Too busy! Monday night I taught TKD for 3 hours so I didn't get to take a class. Tuesday night I treated myself to a massage... what idiot would workout after that? Wednesday a parent meeting for the kids I'm taking to the DR in February. Thursday dinner out and grocery/Christmas shopping. So no time for working out and I'm pretty exhausted tonight! Try coming home after 9 PM 3 nights in a week.
Excuse #3. Holiday food!!! This was the last week before Christmas break at work. So you can imagine the treats and chocolate have been abundant. I handled some situations really well, and other situations poorly. I must admit I enjoyed the home baked goodies, because I don't bake anymore... I'd eat it all in about 48 hours. Also there was dinner out Wednesday and Thursday.
See? Lots of good excuses to be up 1.5lbs this week. I take ownership of all my poor choices this week and the consequences definitely showed up at the scale. I still have high hopes of the new program working for me. I'm looking forward to the next two weeks, where besides Christmas celebrations with family I can focus on proper eating and active living.
