The Christmas Aftermath

So did I survive? I guess so but I don't think I survived unscathed.

I don't know what it is about being home but I just seem to eat unhealthly here. Probably something to do with the amount of fatty food lying around and the feeling of treating yourself that Christmas brings. I am enjoying myself (because you know it's Christmas) but I know I'm going to have to work these calories off.

I've been walking the dog every day so far but I haven't properly exercised since Friday. I know bad. bad Emily. It's not the end of the world fo me but I am slightly disappointed in myself. I have found not being at work stressful because I haven't been able to go to the work gym, which throws me off my exercise plan. I hate not being able to folow my routine :(

Oddly enough my family make me much more docile and unactive. Their inactivity seems to make me feel more tired and therefore more likely to want to skip exercising.

Tonights dinner was lettuce, yellow pepper, cottage cheese, two crumpets and some very very nice smoked salmon :D Very delicious and seems to be settling much better in stomach. The food over the festive season didn't seem to be settling very well and was causing my stomach to be upset. I'm not sure whether it is due to the amount of food I have been eating or the type of food but as soon as I've returned to my beloved salad my stomach settled immediately. Something can definitely be said for eating better food.

I'm looking forward to returning home and my normal food and exercise regime. Bring on the year of the healthy living :D

Well after a stonking good party.......

    I'm looking forward to returning to some kinda routine after the amount of food i've eaten at Christmas.

  2. Hey Emily! Thank you for stopping by my blog, I appreciate it. :) I'm totally with you, going off plan sucks. It really does.
