So Be Good for Goodness Sake!

Now in the final three-day countdown of my pre-holiday struggle, I am sitting in front of my desktop shoving spoonfuls of Siggi’s Strained Non-fat Vanilla yogurt down my throat as I dream of sugar plum fairies, turkeys with lots of gravy, some mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie.

Instead of dreaming about food, I am desperately pushing to flip my inner fatty switch to dream of barbells, treadmills and assisted chin-up machines.  Here’s where things get dicey…I KNOW that I should go to the gym.  I WANT to sit around in pajamas and eat huge scoops of vanilla ice cream that are violently suffocating the pumpkin pie beneath them.

Here is my resolution:  Finish my non-fat yogurt that still has some clumps left at the bottom of the cup.  Have my usual Palm Beach Shrimp salad from Chop’t for lunch.  Eat a healthy dinner.  Have some healthy snacks – maybe an Apple or Sugar-Free Jello (10 calories!).  Repeat this process tomorrow and Wednesday.  Add in a vigorous gym session tonight and tomorrow evening.  Eat like a tyrannosaurus-rex on Thanksgiving – meaning focus on the high protein stuff for dinner – devour the turkey and through in some leafy stuff – try to avoid the mashed potatoes and save my calories for the pumpkin pie that has been dancing  in my head.

I will report back tonight to let you know how well I am sticking to my plan – particularly the working out part – I am just not a fan of the gym.
