Just get back to it!

I have really enjoyed Thanksgiving this year. Even though I did indulge in foods laced with butter and loaded with sugar, it has been a great holiday. For the most part, I thought I was doing pretty good diet-wise. Being off work all week allowed me to ride my bike almost everyday. As a result, I was able to pedal over 50 miles!

Yesterday, mom and I drove to Livingston to meet a friend for lunch. We hadn't seen her in over a year and it was great to catch up. We ate at a place called Shrimp Boat Manny's. The food was great. I only wish I hadn't chosen the fried catfish. It was awesome, but since I don't eat like "that" anymore, my gut was not happy. Today, I felt like I had a hangover. My head hurt, my mouth was dry, and my joints ached. When will I ever learn?

I'm feeling much better tonight. I've had lots of water and I'm back to eating clean. My bike ride today was great. Tomorrow, is another day. All is not lost. I'm not stepping on the scale until Tuesday, though. I'm afraid of what it'll say, so not knowing is better for now, lol. Whatever, I don't need the scale to tell me I abused my body.

Have a great week and don't forget to drink your water!


  1. HI Tena,
    I am so glad you enjoyed your Thanksgiving.
    It's amazing how awful some foods make us feel. You think we would all learn, but the fast food chains say otherwise...
    I hope you have a good week and build on the good feelings you have.

  2. 50 miles-That's awesome!
    I guess in a way it's a good thing your body kind of rejects the "bad" food now. It shows your progress :D

  3. 50 miles is spectacular! WTG!

  4. Awesome mileage!

    I've learned that I can have catfish, in really small portions, without gastro effects, but I've asked my family to please remind me not to order "regular-sized" portions of it again. They're all too willing to help, since they had to listen to me complain last time. :)
