Happy New Year! A quick diet update

Happy New Year! I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year’s celebration. I know our family enjoyed both holidays and are kind of looking forward to getting back to the normal routine of life. Kinda. 🙂

So, you’re probably wondering what happened with my diet during these last few weeks. Maybe you are. Anyway, here’s the deal. I took the last 2 weeks off-completely. My diet roughly consisted of the “Buddy the Elf” diet: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup. Ok, nix the syrup. I still can’t stomach that stuff! Did I gain a few pounds? Sure I did, but it was my choice, knowing all along that I’d jump back on the diet after the New Year. It was interesting to listen to my wife repeatedly say, “Uhh, honey. Remember, we just bought you all those new clothes for Christmas.”

I’m ready to get back to the diet. While the last 2 weeks were interesting, I feel sluggish and can tell slight differences in the way I feel. The interesting thing is that all of my new clothes (new jeans included), all still fit perfectly. I even ate myself to a whopper headache one day. Not something I’m proud of, but something that shows my body has changed. Consuming large amounts of sugar are a thing of the PAST!

Regardless, I’ve got to move forward. Today, I get back to my routine. I’ll be interested to see how fast the weight drops off after this 2 week binge.  Make sure to tune in to my Facebook page and Twitter account on Saturday to see how much weight I’ve lost this week.

Whatever your goal(s) are for 2012, pursue them and pursue them relentlessly. Let’s rock 2012 out together!
