A New Year

One of my goals for the year is to keep up with the LB blogging world again. I got side-tracked during the holidays, but I am going to do my best to not only blog again, but to read blogs again. I get the most out of keeping up with you guys and commenting. Even if I only get to contribute to my own blog once a week, I want to keep up with everyone else, because it keeps me focused and reminds me of what I am trying to do with my life.

Over the holidays, I did not lose anything. But, I did not gain, so I am actually pretty pleased about this. In my job, I get a LOT of time off for holidays during this time of year. I have been out of work since Dec. 15th and today is my first day back. It really KILLS eating routines. I am a creature of routine and normally would have been on a better non-work routine, but I was so incredibly sick over the holidays. If I wasn't running around and traveling, I was sick. I had the cold from hell and I am just now feeling like a normal person.

All the coughing and nose-blowing has my port area irritated...has that every happened to any of you? It's just a little sore from using that muscle, I guess.

While I was congested, I barely ate a thing. I couldn't taste, and besides that, I think the band was much tighter than normal because I couldn't get much to go down. Our lovely Christmas dinner was wasted on me. However, I ate enough homemade peanut brittle to make up for that later. So many goodies this time of year! But, I think in a weird sort of way, I got it out of my system and I am so ready for getting back on track now.

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season and I am looking forward to catching up with everyone's journey while looking ahead to a great 2011! Happy New Year, everyone! :)

The holidays took away from my blogging too. Hoping to start doing better. Congrats on not gaining over the holiday. I didn't either, which is a miracle, but I haven't lost in 2 months so it's time to start working my band. Happy New Year!
