Review post

Happy holidays to all of my readers! I have not been around because I tried to rest during my break... that did not work out so well for me :P

Holidays = loss of control. I should start by saying that I pride myself on my self-control. I know how it feels to be fat and unhappy and I also know that NOTHING tastes as good as skinny (must) feel... but during the holidays I lost any sense of normalcy. My children were wild, my stress level was wild and so were my eating habits. Now, had I continued working out that might not have been as bad a situation BUT ... in my wild schedule I did not make the time to work out - NOT EVEN ONCE!

Anyway, all I can say is that I am happy that I am not an at home Mom... cause I think that I would be the size of a whale. Thankfully I work and can stay focused on my career and my objectives while I am at work... then happily get swallowed up by the chaos that is my life when I get home. It seems that I can handle things better when I work... does anyone else feel the same way? I mean I work full time, on committees and have obligations outside of work and yet I seem to be able to make the time at home more valuable and productive when I have this schedule... weird eh!??

All that to say that this is the week that I start taking off the 8 pounds that I put on since the last time that I weighed in!!! 8 POUNDS.... that is a ton of weight... but I started taking it off already. I decided to begin the New Year with a little Lean P90X. This should last about 1 month and then my hubby will become inspired and join me. We also looked into getting a Landice L7 Treadmill and an Olympic bench, weights and all the fixin's... we are going to make 2011 the best year yet, we will be phyisically fit before 2012!! You heard it here first... and by the end of 2011 I will post my before and after pics and not just the face shots... the full body shots in workout wear :)

So, that is where I am for now... here are the stats from last night's workout:

Core Synergistics:
Calories: 594
Average HR: 129
Maximum HR: 177

Oh yeah, I also want to say that I am pushing harder this year... I WILL see results that I will be proud of. I should also say that my Beachbody Coach, Coach Chris, sent me a sample of Shakeology and I will be trying it tomorrow. If I like it I think that I will be including Shakeology as part of my New Year's commitment to healthy living.

Later readers...

Make it a great day!

Don't sweat it love. You are not alone. I don't have a scale, but my pants were TIGHT yesterday. Just started P90X yesterday as well.

I'm sure you will get back to where you were and even stronger very soon. We all need to be a little lax now and again.

Here's to a happy and healthy 2011~

Happy New Year!!!

I agree... I do better at work too. Something about being at home around the holidays with cookies all over the place makes it not figure friendly. LOL.

Can't wait to see what this year has in store for you guys! And I agree with Betty... you need to enjoy life sometimes!!! Seems like you're back with a vengeance already... so good luck!!! :)

Thanks for dropping by my blog.

It is hard to keep on track during the holidays. I didn't exercise at all really either (unless you count playing catch exercising!).

P90X is a great program but I couldn't finish it lol. After the first week, I could barely move and since I wasn't in it for weight loss, I just let it go lol.
