4 days in a row of logging and 3 green checks. I am feeling good about that and my body is too. Yesterday was a little better eating, nothing impulsive. I need to decrease my carbs and sodium and pump up the protien.

I am ready for the weekend. Work stress is pretty high and it will be nice to get a 3 day weekend. We are going to a friends house for New Years (very low key) eve but that is it. My plan is to hang at home and organize the house.

I hope everyone has a wonderful a...

Well the holiday stress and craziness at work got to me and I did not do well eating wise. I ate way too much and I honesty feel gross. I really don't want to step on the scale right now. I really don't need to because I know that I have put on some extra pounds, I am sure 5-10 pounds based on the way I feel........ my pants are snug, a little bit of the muffin top is creeping over and there is a little more giggle when I am running and exercising. Just in 2 short weeks things can change tha...
