Friday 12/21/12

It’s Friday and the holidays are officially in effect! Prep for family visit limited me to just a run on Wed with no gym. Office Christmas party was Thursday, so I declared a cheat day and enjoyed myself while a midwestern snow storm cut off my post work gym visit! So today, I”m up a pound or two from bad food bloat, which is not the end of the world and it too shall pass. Despite what Gandalf says.

It’s funny though looking back on the office luncheon yesterday. I had mostly okay food diet wise but I had a piece of pie a couple cookies to go with it. I’ve been on this diet since roughly the end of February and it’s amazing how much my capacity and tolerance has changed! While I didn’t feel like I had to be rolled out, the hearty helpings of food left me feeling over stuffed and the pecan pie and 2 cookies (and a couple small chocolate candy/pretzel thingies for full disclosure) left me feeling queasy within a good half hour of the party! It also left me with an amazing sugar rush and fighting to stay away in my recliner by 7:30 pm. Proof positive of that whole ‘you are what you eat/food is for fuel’ mantra I’d say.

Coming up, we’ll have some good eats on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but not so many sweets. Mostly ham, lasagna and scalloped corn, so not the end of the world. I’m on stay-cation next week, but I’ll still be tracking and counting all my food so not too worried. Heck, I’ll probably be hitting the gym at least two of the days next week too, and I’ll be running for certain! As it stands, I have a 5k to run tomorrow morning (in the snow, sweet!) and then I’ll have about 9 days to try and log 22 miles so I can finish up 2012 with exactly 300 running miles!

Not too shabby for a dude that started 2012 at 351 lbs. if I do say so myself.

And I do. I do say so myself.
