1 A Post-Holiday Feast Weigh-In: I'm Not A Masochist, Really!
While some of you might think I'm insane to weigh myself the morning after a holiday meal, might I remind you that there's a good reason why I did this. And it's not for reasons as masochistic as you might think. ;-)
My reasoning for doing such a "heinous" thing as a post-feast weigh-in was this: I set out to prove that a pre-feast workout can be one of the best things you can do for your mind & your body over the holidays!
And, as direct proof of this, I am happy to report that, after an hour of running & a strength-training session, that I only gained 0.4 lbs. after last night's meal.
I think that's DAMN good, people, don't you?! I managed to minimize my holiday weight-gain: Instead of gaining the "holiday five," it was more like the "holiday point five"! ;-)
Of course, I know I'll manage to quickly get rid of the minimal weight I gained last night with... you guessed it -- a return to normal eating & more exercise! 8-)
This feels GREAT!
