Back home from vacation

I'm going to join the ranks of Reverb 10 quitters, along with Shauna and what's-her-name at The Plan is This. I was getting tired of it and I missed the last two prompts while I was in Toronto.  I'll blog about the trip sometime soon. I had a great time, and would consider renouncing my U.S. citizenship for better access to Aero bars and VIA Rail if it wasn't so cold and dark there.

My husband started mumbling about needing an "austerity programme" (we were in Canada so I assume that's how he spelled it) when we got back. We definitely spent a lot of money, drank too much, and ate too much (though I did try to stick to salads at dinner to get my veggies in).

I don't really want to do austerity but I do want to actually count my points and work on losing. I could wait until New Year's Day like everyone else, but as I told a friend who suggested that, "How much fatter do I want to be by then?" So I got a run in today and went to the grocery store so I could stuff the fridge full of veggies and fruit.

    1. Yes, I quit Reverb10, as well. Maybe it was the time of the year (which means almost no time for much of anything extra), or perhaps it was the disinterest in the questions themelves. I just couldn't relate that well. Maybe it's just me...
      Anyway, I need to focus of my weight loss program right now. I liked your question: "How much fatter do I want to be by then (Jan. 1)? It struck a chord with me. Thanks.

    2. I never really knew what Reverb 10 was in the first place :) But quitting something that was more of a chore than something you found useful makes a lot of sense.

      Your friend (and every WW leader I've ever met) are right. Waiting until Jan. 1 to getting tighter on food and exercise is a cop out, and it's way too easy to pile on pounds and sloth. Just jumping in now will help you be more mindful going through these last holidays and all the excess they bring.

      Have a lovely Christmas, Jen :)
