Keeping it real for the holidays

The holidays are a hard time for people who are food conscious.  Just because I lost all this weight doesn’t mean I don’t have issues with food and right now I just feel like my eating hasn’t been that good.  My eating habits probably aren’t as bad as I’m making it seem; it’s just that I’m eating foods that I usually don’t eat.  I am desperately trying to get rid of the leftovers in the house so I can put the holiday behind me.  I hate wasting money and throwing away food is just wasting money to me.  This morning I tried to start things off like normal by eating my usual eggs and oatmeal.  Yes I know you can’t see the eggs, but there are egg whites behind that spinach!

Breakfast before a run!

For lunch I was stuck with leftovers so I made a ham sandwich with a side of dressing and sweet potatoes. It was very good.

I think I'm tired of #leftovers! Ready to move on from this food but it's not gone yet!

But not what I’m use to eating. We have one more go round with the leftovers and after that I think they’ll all be gone. Thank goodness for having company to help eat up all this food.

It’s always hard for me because I usually eat the same thing every day and I don’t worry about it.  It’s like clock work but during the holidays it’s always something different.  Come Monday I’m going to try to get back on track with feeling normal again, but then it will be time for the marathon.

This is a life lesson on being too hard on myself.  When I start eating off, I start to feel down on myself like I’m slipping into bad habits even though I know it’s not the case.  My mind plays tricks on me and every one who has ever lost a lot of weight has the fear of gaining the weight back.  These are the moments when things like this creep into my mind and it’s just stupidness.  It’s time to rise above that though because I’ve still remained active and are keeping mostly healthy habits.

On a brighter note, I attended the Run Walk for a Cause to support the victims of typhoons in the Philippines. It was a great experience and I’m glad that I was able to go and run and support my friends. I purchased $60 of raffle tickets but I won nothing. That was a big bummer but the money went to a great cause.

So are you still eating holiday leftovers?
