Are you kidding I planned on jumping off the wagon. I will catch back up to it and jump back on after the new year. I have all of this week off and my wife's family is visiting. There's only like 6 adults but we made 9 deserts. It's great . But I will probably double my workout efforts this week and run about 20 miles.

I did! Gained about 5 lb in all... Not so much bad food around here, but just a LOT of food. I've been eating multiple meals a day. I've continued to work out, but I can only push so hard. And being heavier makes pull-ups harder.

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.

I absolutely did plan this "slip" over the holidays. 5 pounds worth. So many old "favorite" recipes. Detoxing now. One thing about taking care of myself is now I notice how unhealthful foods affect me--mind and body. Like Tandoori, kept my workouts in check--more for stress reduction than anything else.

I decided to PULL the wagon but it finally overtook and ran me over Christmas Eve! I actually ate pretty clean, just a little more cals, over the Holidays but those darn Christmas "toast" were never ending!

Good news is that the new "non stretch" jeans I got right before Christmas fit just fine when I decided to finally wear them yesterday! I was SCARED to try them on, lol!

The damage was minimal, thank goodness! I think the wagon did manage to squish some of my muscle into flab though. The repairing started yesterday with P90X abripper, ouch!

i fell off big time, still running to catch up with the wagon, but, did anyone see which way it went?
trying to get back on track, if this christmas cookies let me! seems i have to finish them all before even planning to chase after the wagon!
anyway, have been exercising last 2 nights, still have not purchased p90x yet, i didn't know it ends up being sooooo expensive considering all u need to purchase with it! but anyway, i'm trying, i will get the equipment when i can and get back on track eventually!
Never give up on a dream just because of the length of time it will take to achieve it. The time will pass anyway.

<raises hand> Oh yes, I have been bad. Food and workout-wise. As if 15 lbs of turkey for 4 people at home isn't enough, there's STILL treats coming in from the farmers' wives at work! Slow season + homemade from scratch Grandma quality goodies in bulk = a lot of calories I don't need, but oh it's soo good... <drool> I did hit the elliptical before work yesterday, but it's farkin' freezing here, the kids are both home, and I did not get up at 7 am to hit the gym today. I may do some Pilates later, and I can't bring myself to throw these leftovers out-such a waste!-so I won't be completely back on the wagon til next week. The daughter will be back in school, and the leftovers will either be gone or "going bad" (why must I let food rot in the fridge before I can throw it away, when I know I don't want to eat it? ), so I'll be back to my "real life" soon enough. I don't know the total damages yet, I'm guessing probably 5 lbs judging by how my pants fit, but meh-it's Christmas, and a lot more fun than I've had in a long time.
If I keep starting over, eventually it will stick, right?

Pretty much every year of my adult life I've given up on the diet between Thanksgiving and New Year's. 'Tis the season to be fat and jolly right? And that was the plan this year as well, only I got struck down with the stomach bug from hell the week of Thanksgiving, and the week following. When it was over I'd dropped 15 pounds, had constant tremors and could only eat like 1/2 cup of food at a time. So basically I ate whatever looked good for the balance of December. I also couldn't really put in much of a workout for most of December, so I worked out about 1/2 as much at about 1/2 strength (so what's that like 1/4?). Anyway now I'm weak and flabby and nearly back to what I weighed pre-stomach bug. So did I fall off the wagon or was I roped and yanked off by the violent stomach bug? Dunno, don't care, I'm back in the saddle today. I went for a very long run/walk because officially I'm supposed to be training for a 10K in May. We'll see. That 10K business might be pure fantasy for this year, but for the moment I'm serious enough that I went 5.75 miles today and am looking forward to a treadmill workout Monday, which will hopefully be closer to the 6.2 miles I need to be at in May.
