Back To Normal

Whew, it feels so good to have our life back to normal! It's like a weight lifted off of my shoulders! Even though I wasn't even the one dieting, I still felt the stress of Matt being on such a structured eating plan. I mean, I even lost a couple pounds!  (Goes to show how the eating habits of the people around you can rub off on you!)

It's such a relief now that he can just eat anything he wants any time he wants.  It felt like the diet was our LIFE for the past couple months, and I am just glad it's over. I have my husband back!  Although I have a feeling that he'll probably do it again...

So after Matt's show, everyone kept asking me, 'so when are you gonna compete?'  My reply: NEVER.  Getting up on stage just to have someone critique every inch of my body does NOT appeal to me. I just want to look good, look like a fitness competitor maybe, but...that doesn't mean I want to be one! 

Being in front of a huge crowd of people with everyone staring at me is actually terrifying to me and one of my biggest fears. It does NOT sound fun at all!  Now, doing a powerlifting competition or something and actually showing off what I can DO-that would be a different story. That's what I call fun! Not strutting around on stage in a tiny bikini. It makes me shudder just thinking about it.

So anyways, I can't believe the holidays are almost here!!!! I'm SO excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have most of my Christmas shopping finished and even wrapped! (I don't really have that many people to buy for anyway.) I can't wait to put up my Christmas tree and decorate the house-it's so fun, I love it!

And of course, I can't wait to stuff my face on Thanksgiving! Yes, I said stuff my face(I do, however, suggest that you do not follow my bad example, haha). It's the only time of the year really that I get to eat good, homecooked comfort food! And I'm definitely NOT going to pass on that, thank you very much. :)

For me, one day of indulging(or 2 or 3 or 4!) out of all the days of the year, is not gonna hurt anything, and it's one of the things I enjoy in life! Of course, I have a few techniques I use on days when I know I'll be splurging-I'll try to get a workout in on the day of the "feast", whether it's at the gym, or just a bodyweight circuit I can do at home, and I'll keep the carbs low the few days before and after if I can. 

But ultimately, I really don't worry about it or stress over it too much. I eat healthy every other day of the year so that I can have a few days of indulgence here and there, and Thanksgiving and Christmastime is one of them!


  1. Haha! I also have my presents bought and wrapped! I figured it's better now before all the shopping/traffic madness! Also, you can flow into the holidays and ENJOY them rather than stress to get everything done. And... don't worry at all about indulging this holiday season! You look amazing and can SO afford to! ;)

  2. Yes, that's what I try to avoid-you won't catch me in the malls in December. I love Christmas and don't want it to be a stressful time!
    Well, thanks! I will defininetly indulge, then just get back right on track! :)
