I’ve decided it’s about time I get back to blogging. My last post was on November 20th and today is January 27th. Yikes! That’s over two months! As you know, time has a way of slipping away and the things you have every intention of doing don’t get done…especially during the busyness of the holiday season.
That’s part of why I haven’t written in so long. The other part has to do with what my diet looked like from Thanksgiving until New Year’s. Let’s just say it wasn’t pretty. And the scale agreed. I worked hard to lose 15 pounds and then — poof! — I gained half of it back. I was very disappointed in myself and considered forgetting this blog altogether.
But then it was a new year and a fresh start. And I know there is truth in the statement that you never really fail unless you give up. So I’m not giving up. I’ve been back on the straight and narrow since the beginning of January and I’m very happy to say I’ve lost everything I gained back plus a couple more pounds. In addition to healthy eating, I’ve also added in some regular exercise. Even though I have to force myself to do it, I always feel better after.
I’m looking forward to the year ahead and I’ve got some great recipes coming, including some amazing cookies that I’ve been devouring the last couple of days. Stay tuned!
