It Feels Like Whiplash

Posted on January 6, 2009

December = cookie baking, candy making, chocolate eating, a big Christmas dinner, using butter in obscene amounts, never actually getting hungry…

Then BAM! January hits!

January = calorie limits, dusting off the treadmill (*ahem* and using it), having chocolate only in your dreams, drinking water water water, finding yourself frequently wandering out to the kitchen to look around for something ‘legal’ to eat…

Sigh! Anyone else suffering from ‘whiplash’?

    And, I am even hungrier than before Christmas…darn turkey/mashed potatoes/stuffing/pies.


    It was back to the gym for me tonight. Am hoping to rev up my metabolism.

    Having my oldest move away to Hawaii has done wonders for my eating…..I’ve actually had to tell myself to go eat and drink. There is a silver lining behind every cloud! I haven’t weighed, I can just tell in my clothing…..afraid if I weigh it will do something to my psyche and I’ll start eating everything in sight…lol. I hope you are having a Happy New Year!!!

    I’m definitely there with you! My husband goes in at the end of the month (hopefully) for his bone marrow transplant and there is a workout room in the hospital that I can use. My goal is to workout each morning since I won’t have work, cleaning the house, cooking, laundry, sewing basket, or any of the other convenient excuses I’m always able to find.

    Me too… boo hoo… Going from freedom to limits is never fun. Oh well, when you see me next, your mouth will drop open, you’ll go bug-eyed, and you will not believe how slim and youthful I am… then I’ll wake up.

    Yes, indeed – “whiplash” – all out of shape. Will Power and I are not good friends. He requires too much from me. We don’t get along, are constantly arguing, and I keep trying to resist his advances – Go away, Will, go away.
    Kay, I don’t know how you do it, working w/ all this food, constantly reading recipes, trying ’em out, taking n posting pictures. I gain 5# just reading through your posts. eeek :) Always makes me so hungry. Then’s when Will and i have to get along.

    and to top it off I’m just getting over a sinus infection so I haven’t felt like working out for the last 2 weeks. But it’s definitely time. Start posting a few low calorie recipes. Save me the time of looking for them lol.
