Days 125-128 Catching up From Christmas!

Well, the house chores hit a fever pitch by Friday night, and we didn't stop til about 2 or 3 am. I was up getting the turkey in early Saturday morning, and thankfully, everything went well. I had enough room in the oven for the things on the menu. I got help from our two girls getting things done. Everyone arrived at about 2pm, and by 2:30, I was putting everything on the table....and wonder of all wonders, it was all hot, and all done at the same time. Everyone liked the food, I got lots of compliments, and the best part of all is that I didn't stuff myself. I skipped all the potatoes, sausage, and corn. I had the turkey, green beans, salad, and cranberry sauce. And I had lots of coffee and water that day.

I didn't record a loss this week, but no gain either. And I am still having issues with the bathroom. I'm still not going for sometimes 2-3 days, and so I'm thinking that maybe that's one reason for no loss this week. I'm thinking that a laxative may become my friend.....oh joy....

Sunday was pure recovery day. And quite emotional for me. Not sure if its PMS or what, but I spent a good deal of the day in tears. Our youngest went to spend the night at a friends, and then oldest came over and her, hubby and I went to the movies to see The Little Fokkers. I think they were trying a little too hard on this one. Meet the Parents, and Meet the Fokkers were funny enough, but this one was a bit much. There were some funny moments to be sure, but not something I would spend $10 to see....wish I hadn't this time either.

After saying goodbye to oldest, hubby and I went home and I was back to the emotional crap.

I hate that. I have days where I am all kinds of pissed off and emotional, and feel justified about all of it, and the next day, I can't understand why I was so upset. In retrospect, it all seems out of proportion.

I guess it must be PMS....its coming soon...yay.

I have not been tracking my calories, but I have been behaving for the most part. And I am back on schedule today, with 16 ounces of water and a mug of coffee so far.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and enjoyed some nice time with family and friends.

I'll be checking in with your blogs throughout the day.

  1. You did amazingly well for Christmas. I am impressed with your control.

    I would guess that when the BM does happen you will show a loss. So don't let the scale impact your motivation. I have the same problem.
