The Post Christmas/ January Hangover

Hey All,

Sorry I haven’t been around, well I have but not blogging!!

The Christmas Hangover has been hitting me hard this week and I’ve been feeling a big negative so I decided not to vent and rant on here and annoy ye all.
I reckon if I had, someone woulda called round to kick me up the hole and I would have deserved it

So here we go. I was not a good girl over the Christmas.  I was full of good intentions, yes.

However, Good intentions did not stop me from eating everything & anything in sight (even when I wasn’t hungry/ didn’t want it/ like it) and eating at crazy times!!

I would usually shrug this behaviour off and throw in an “Ah sure its Christmas” but I don’t deem this to be a good enough excuse for me anymore!
I’ve been doing the dog and now I’m paying for it 10 folds!!

Truth be told, I’m been on a slippery slope for the last month or so and the last two weeks, just highlighted for me how badly I choose to eat when out of my routine and how qucikly I can gain weight,. Its kinda scary.

I went back to work and my routine on Monday. Threw on my usual black work pants and a  jumper and off I went. By 9.30am I was feeling very uncomfortable, my black pants was TIGHT! I mean scary tight like I’d put on the wrong trousers!!  I had a red ring around my “waist” it was that tight and even walking it was tight around the back of my knee’s. I can honestly say I’d forgotten how awful this feels!!  Iwas paranoid for the whole day and felt like I’d worn tights to work rather than my usually (kinda baggy and comfy) black pants!! An 8 hour Wedgie is never good!!

The Food baby I had acquired over the Christmas holidays was not gonna let me forget about it just because I was back to being good.

word of the day: October 13, 2010
when you eat so much, that your stomach looks pregnant
Jeez! I ate so much, I look like I am having a food baby!

Here are some of the other negative things that I could write about but I think you get where I’m going at this stage and how I’m feeling

·         I feel bigger than I’ve ever felt
·         I’m so uncomfortable all the time
·         I’m a little more paranoid when dressing and trying to hide my extra wobbly bits
·         I feel sluggish and crap
·         My skin and hair are freaking  out with me
·         FOOD BABY! Gross!
·         My belt is on the 2nd loop hole  (It was almost into the 4th loop before the Xmas)

But last Monday I was back to my familiar routine, I had a sugar free day and drank LOADSA water, it was needed after all the over eating!!
I’ve been to 3 classes this week to try and do some  “damage control” before my official Post Christmas Weigh in tomorrow 11th January.

But I think your with me when I say that the result tomorrow won’t be a good one! But it will be a new start for me and DOWN DOWN DOWN from here!! It has to be!!

Just thought I’d keep ye guys updated. I’m back and I’m on a mission to succeed.

This is only a minor set back!! Altho it feels like one big Food Baby at the moment **sigh**

Stay tuned, to find out what I have planned for myself


  1. Delighted you are back. I know how hard Christmas is... as you know from my post I *just* scraped by and know it was more to do with the threat of losing €200 and not because I was really good. The important thing here is that you are back and ready to kick ass :) Happy New Year HBG x

  2. Agh it's so annoying when you undo some of your good work.. I'm hoping to get to a few fitness classes when I get back home in February, I'm always interested in hearing about classes! Hope you feel like you're back on track :)
