It's that time of year...
Christmas Season is well underway and I thought this year I would be prepared for all of the office luncheons, potlucks, and such. I thought that with my new lap-band, that I wouldn't be tempted to eat the yummy sugary goodness and that I would get full way quicker.
Yup... I was wrong...
My problem is, is that I keep picking those nice "Slider" foods. My fellow lap-banders know what I am talking about and can relate! Chocolate, unfortunately doesn't get stuck and slides right on down. My only saving grace, is that I cannot tolerate bread pretty much of any kind - so the yummy slices of banana bread and pastries and such I just don't touch anymore. I did however, and much to my dismay, eat a couple of doughnuts at work - yes they still go down nicely - but I have to work at it...lol...bite of doughnut, then sip of coffee...bite of doughnut...
You get my drift??
I did manage to lose .1 of a pound this week. I basically stayed the same, and I will take it. I also missed a couple of workouts due to being sick. I've spent most of my nights coughing until I throw up - which isn't good for my lungs and throat, AND my lap-band. Today, I managed to get a spin class in and felt pretty good after. I've still been coughing quite a bit, but I think the worst is over.
My focus this week, will be to keep my nibbling of the Christmas treats to a minimum... the good thing about where I work, is that we are all trying to look out for one another - and so we've been putting the treats away in the supply cupboard. Out of sight...out of mind... :-) I only have one Christmas Luncheon and one evening potluck - so I shouldn't have too much of a hard time going off-track.
I hope everyone is doing well with their Christmas Temptations...I know they can be really hard to resist but with some determination and common sense on my part, I can do it!
Just say NO to those temptations!
Happy Week everyone!
