Happy New Year!!!!
I know its been a while since my last post but I decided to take a bit of a break to focus on family time over Christmas. I may have mentioned that my sister was visiting from New Zealand with her family for the first time in 3 years so I had set aside a lot of time to spend with them and my beautiful little niece. I had over 2 weeks off work, and so any time I wasn't spending with my family I was enjoying some well needed rest and relaxation just enjoying the first Christmas in my new home and of course catching up with friends. I missed my last 2 weigh ins before the xmas break, and despite my best intentions I started the indulgence somewhere around December 20th and only really got myself back on track last Thursday. I haven't looked at the scales yet as my leader isn't back until this week, but I can tell everything is a little bit tighter than it was, so I am expecting a substantial gain. I was hoping to get some damage control in this week, but I lost the run of myself a bit yesterday which is not ideal. 4 good on plan days before weigh in will hopefully help. Anyway, Christmas is only once a year and so I will not be feeling guilty over the bit of excess. I had a wonderful time and I am now more than ready to get back to my healthy lifestyle.
I am actually really looking forward to getting back to class and getting all the info to get stuck into the flex plan. I am pointing things both ways this week until I get all the info and then will be switching fully and focusing on giving it a real go. It looks really interesting, but I don't want to say too much until I have all the information. I will start updating my Hairy Dieters posts and all my recipes once I get all the literature. I also got a Xmas present of the new Veggie Hairy Dieters, so will be adding that to the blog with all SmartPoints on the new flex plan calculated.

I've been coming down with a bit of a cold lately, so since the Fat Turkey Run on the 27th I've only made it out for one run. Feeling a bit better today so hoping to get out in the morning and have signed myself up for a new training plan starting next Tuesday to really kick myself into gear. Am absolutely broke this month, but once payday comes I will be signing up for a few races to get the motivation going.

Back to my usual meal plans this week - have included the points for both the old plan and flex for this last week before fully converting over. I am trying a couple of recipes from some new cookbooks I got and hoping to get back to experimenting in the kitchen over the next few weeks to post some new recipes.
