Good News, Bad News


Well I may as well get the bad news over with first.

I did terrible eating on Christmas day.

Seems I have a real problem with home made, cut out and iced Christmas cookies.

I love them!!

Especially the stars.

I can just break off a couple of rays and walk away…

sadly I always went back and just kept breaking off.

My sis in law makes the best caramels.

This year she brought them in the pan. So I could just sliver off a slice….

little, by little, by little, by little…. see a pattern?

There were other things I ate that were out of my norm.

All of this resulted in me feeling physically terrible.

My tummy was a churning, and spinning. So much that I thought I must be getting the flu.

I woke up on Christmas morning to the sounds of one of my children wretching his guts out. By 3:00 that day another son was sick. This is another whole story and it is not very pretty so I think I will just stop there.

But you get the point… My body does not like high amounts of fats and sugar so much that I felt physically sick.

This is probably a good thing.

Now for the good news. My sweet family got me a Wii and a Wii fit for Christmas.  ( okay in all honesty I told them it was all I wanted and I would help pay ) My sweet hubby went in with them and I received this very extravagant gift.

Although so far I have to wait to get a turn. Seems they all like the Wii.

I think I am really going to like it.

The Wii tells it like it is.

The first time I stepped on it went ….OHHH! ( kind of like an OH MY! )

Sorta of irritating.

Then it told me I was obese.

Kinda hurtful!

Then it said my Wii age was 52.

Very disturbing!!

But after I did a few things on it I went back and did a few more tests to determine my Wii age and it said I was 34!!

Liking that!

So I can’t wait to do it again today!

Even though it’s insulting, it is also challenging, encouraging  and so far makes exercise fun.

I think it is going to be a good thing for me.

Have a great day!

Small Victories


So the other day I was super busy. Which resulted in me being in town at about 7:00 with no supper eaten.

I was feeling pretty hungry.

I still had to stop at the grocery.

My mind was doing battle….

one little bacon cheeseburger won’t hurt…

a few fries…

a taco…

And really none of these things are terrible

But me giving into myself would be.

Plus I would scarf it down and want more.

Not cool!

So I compromised

I bought a bunch of bananas at the grocery. put all but one in the trunk.

Ate it while I finished up in town. Then went home and ate supper with my hubby.

Small victory!

Small victories win big battles! :)

Day One


Wow! it has been so long since my last post I have almost forgotten how to blog!

Today is the 1st day of my Christmas break.

Even though school was cancelled yesterday. I still went in for part of the day.

So today is truly day one of Christmas break for me!!

I took full advantage.

I slept in!! I actually still woke up at normal time. I had to force myself back to sleep :)

Now I am going to work out. Yep me and Leslie ( That is Leslie Sansone Dvds)

I have been slacking in the exercise area. My 5-7 times a week have dwindled to 1-3 if I am lucky.

I really want to change that around. Too be honest I haven’t felt as good.

My eating is not what it should be either.

I have been snacking to much.

So then I skip meals to make up for the snacking.

Which usually leads to more snacking.

So today is day one for me to getting back to that more disciplined Susie.

Starting with more exercise, more veggies, more protein and less snacks.

Everyday is a new day to try harder and do better.

My goal is to get through this eating holiday with no weight gained!!!

Wish me luck!!
