The only comfort...

Tanji really loves tolerates her reindog coat.

Quote du jour: …it's not so much what happens between Christmas and New Year's, as what happens between New Year's and Christmas.
- Weight by the SeaShore blog

Right now, that's my only comfort. I really did try to be good. I brought salads and roasted veggies and baked apples for dessert, but all those were swept aside in the relentless tide of sweet things to eat, wine to drink, movies to watch while lounging with friends who brought cookies and pastries.

Okay, I'm done with the whine. The focus right now is on getting back on track.

Exercise du jour: Week 6 of the C25k, day 1.
Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then:
  • Jog 1/2 mile (or 5 minutes)
  • Walk 1/4 mile (or 3 minutes)
  • Jog 3/4 mile (or 8 minutes)
  • Walk 1/4 mile (or 3 minutes)
  • Jog 1/2 mile (or 5 minutes)

Done! Not great, but better than nothing.

You are human.

It's okay to indulge on occasion.

As long as those occasions remain the exception and not the rule, as I know they will with you.

You are doing great, and you are not just the number on the scale or the number of miles you can run.

Thanks for being you.

You are doing fabulous with the Cto5K. I did one day and ditched it when the weather turned cold (below 40!) and windy and rainy. I'm picking it back up in January though. i promise.

I don't trust anyone who doesn't overindulge a least a LITTLE over the holidays. I suspect anyone who claims they don't either is a liar or an alien in human disguise.

And speaking of disguises and costumes, I LOVE your new reindeer!

Everyone indulges some at this time of year. I'll admit to eating a couple of homemade rolls with REAL BUTTER (gasp)over the course of the last few days. Stuff happens and then you run :)

Geez, you are hard on yourself! At least you have a track. And know what to do with it once you get back on it. Without hurting anyone. Usually.

You should be happy to know you have (finally) guilted me into Doing Something in the coming year. No, I have no idea what. Just something. News at 11. Or 12. Maybe 13.

viestiou: pretty sure this is French for "what the hell have you been waiting for?"

It sounds to me like you're well on your way to that world domination.

Tanji is just gorgeous.. what a tolerant pup. :)

I put on a pound over the was feast season and I enjoyed it. Back to being good. Speaking of being good, Tanji deserves a chewy or dog cookie for wearing that reindeer suit. She's a wolf in deer's clothing...

What a good dog.
