Ahhhh, I feel like such a cliche'...this holiday season I have been less than, uh, disciplined. Sitting here writing this, even my pajama pants feel tight. The nitty gritty is about 5 pounds, a progressively strengthening dread of exercise, and a very wrong attachment to the bulk bin sweets at the health food store.
Yep, you can still overindulge on vegan and "healthy" junk foods, comfort foods, and such. My main transgressions this season (and boy were they fun!): martinis, wine, trail mix, bread, vegan cheese (Ohhh, Daiya), MimicCreme, ouch ouch ouch.
I've continued to have salad and a green smoothie daily, but I've dipped a little too often into the heavier foods. With the weather so cold and the couch so cozy (not to mention all the mornings after those holiday drinks) my exercise schedule has dwindled to something light a few times a week.
NO NO NO! I was getting abs! I was buying clothes without trying on, knowing that a medium was perfecto! I was high on life and hot yoga and green powder! Time to get back in action!
*a free 2 week pass to a gym, augmented by daily exercise before and after that 2 weeks
*a fairly strict but fun menu plan using some favorite cookbooks like Appetite For Reduction, Crazy Sexy Diet, & Live Raw
*erm...I'm not sure about the rest..any ideas? :)
