FITx50 \ week 19
This is my favorite Christmas picture for several reasons. For purposes of this post, the expressions illustrate the yin and yang of fitness and dieting. Santa’s look is how I feel after I blow my diet.
The sly grinning kiddo is how I feel once I’ve logged in the exercise and managed to avoid the sweets. I also think its funny because the photographer failed to notice the “horned” candles behind Santa’s head.
This week, I can say my FITx50 focus sided with the kiddo’s expression of satisfaction gained through exercise and moderation in diet.
Still moderate temps have allowed for evening jogs, which lead to very light eating at night. Heading into a hectic weekend that includes my city’s Christmas parade, it’ll be a challenge to exercise.
Momentum Gym’s child care services and Saturday’s community workout session will make finding the time much easier. Squeezing into gym time is much better than squeezing into pants.
See you next week,

Made me chuckle, Scott! That is a great pic! And the comment about squeezing into gym time instead of pants is hilarious!
My fitness goals just changed dramatically. My 40 pound weight loss is due to a serious health problem rather than my diligence, and doc wants me to eat whatever I can eat, rather than dieting. The exercise was doing no good at all for the same reason; I’m breaking muscle down faster than I can build it. It’s all just a bit harder when you’re working toward the wrong goal! Doc says if the disease and the treatment don’t kill me, I should be better in a couple months. I’m trying to get excited about that, but all I can see is dark humor!
All we can do is keep plugging away and hope for the best. I guess I won’t be challenging you in a fitness test any time soon! 🙂
