Slow Return to Normal

This week went OK. Grandson and I started going to the gym. I did nothing but cardio. I am returning my body to Normal and getting out of Holiday Gain mode. I have had a couple of weird set backs - gram crackers in the middle of the night (I hate that stuff) and some chocolate last night. Probably a rebellion in response to prudent eating during the day. I've been going with the lean protein and the complex carbs, heavier on protein and lighter on the carbs and avoiding all the junk.. I do my push ups in the morning and ab work but not as much as I was doing. I am getting my habits back in place. It feels good. I still feel the puff of the gain but it is temporary and not a continuous trend. It's going away. I want to focus on the here and now and make that my priority. There are goodies still at work left over from holiday treats. They are not happening for me today.

We are also getting our sleep back to normal. We are all tired at night. Daughter has been going to sleep very early and getting up at 5 a.m. I have been very sluggish in the mornings and tired in the evening, too. I am very glad it is Friday!!!

More will be revealed!!!!!
