Ok so Christmas over, Hanukkah almost over, Boxing Day over & Kwanzaa almost over next is New Years and then the holidays are over. Wow, I don’t know about you but for me it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. We went to visit my mom for a traditional Christmas lunch where there was turkey, ham, potatoes, salad, and so on and so forth, there was stuff we could eat and we brought the candied nuts we made so we had some sweets, it was as hard as we thought it would be.
From mom’s we went to my wife’s dad’s and there were tamales, pasole (Mexican chicken soup) potato salad, and yeah not much we could eat. I had some soup and picked out the hominy added cabbage and it was good. The funny thing was, I was still full from mom’s house but the old me thinks that each place we go I have to eat, but not this time.
Something has changed, the way I look at food has changed. I don’t need to stuff myself everywhere we go because there is free food. I hear folks say they eat when they are sad, happy or when the food is free. I felt so good coming home and not passing out because I was stuffed. My wife and I were tired from the running but not stuffed and blotted from the food and by the way, we came home to a turkey we had cooking low and slow so now we can meal prep for the weekend & next week.
I am so thankful for our new outlook on food, finally feeling like there is hope and we are in control.
The Down Side:
Ok so food wise we did great over the holidays BUT workout wise I failed. I have not worked out since 12/22 and won’t start back till 12/30 because I will be out of town for a few more days. My birthday is the 29th and we are on the run. I might get in a workout at the hotel late night 28th or early 29th but no promises. Monday I will get back at it hard and I will do some filming so you can see exactly what I am doing. I am not going to beat myself up over missing a few days, it’s not good but it is ok.
My wife and I are so excited to be going into 2020 with a new outlook, new way of looking at food and goal to get toned up, tighten up some of this loose skin and helping others to get the same results so they can feel what we feel after years of suffering in silence hating the way we looked. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I did for so many years. We, my wife and I will be interviewing each other next week, this should be interesting. We will not hold back, so if you have questions you would like us to answer post them in the comments section. It should be fun.
Happy New Year to all. My you and your families be blessed in the new year.
