Holiday week, and all the food and indulging that goes along with it. Oh, and the requisite illness that also seems to go along with the holidays. Christmas Eve and Day were a good time spent with family, though I could have done without the cold/sinus infection that made me pretty miserable.
Really the most notable thing about this week is that it’s the week before the halfway point, which means pictures and skinfold measurements. Yikes. I’m really not ready for that.
Weight is — remarkably, for everything I ate — about the same as last week. Measurements are down a touch. Will wonders ever cease?
Um, yea. Didn’t really happen. Between being festive and being sick, I did little more than strength train once or twice. Totally getting back into it. Really. I mean it this time.
Did I tell y’all about the new habit? I don’t think I did… so, the new habit is to eat nothing but whole foods for two weeks. My diet on the whole is pretty clean, though I can’t say that I eat nothing but whole foods. Aside from the holidays, I’ve been trying to do this for at least two of three meals for the day. It’s hard to do this 100% — and except for a two-week experiment, I don’t think it’s something that fits into my lifestyle.
I’ve fallen off this wagon a bit, though I still do it at least a few days a week. I still think this is beneficial for me.
