Accountability


Accountability for December 23, 2011

After falling into the cookies, on December 20, I committed to being accountable through the New Year to you Fabulous Readers about my diet and exercise as I recover from surgery.

Day 4 of healthy eating! Did great yesterday, particularly considering that treats from my sister-in-law arrived and it was all I could do not to fall right into them. Instead, I had three Gin-Gin ginger hard candies to satisfy my sweet tooth. Everything else was on plan. Win!

Also got in all four-doctor-prescribed walks, so I’m continuing to do well on the exercise.

And I feel great! I am definitely hoping the doctor gives me the all clear next Wednesday as I feel ready to resume my normal activities.

I won’t report in for Christmas Eve or Christmas day. Since I wasn’t sure if I would be feeling up to cooking a big holiday dinner, we made plans to go out to dinner tonight, so today will be my Free Day. (I just had some of the banana bread my sister-in-law sent. Yum!) Christmas will be pretty moderate, but I plan to have a cookie or two and perhaps a slice of the apple pie my husband is planning to make.

My intention is to be back on track Monday, and I’ll be back with accountability next week.

Happy Holidays!

Have a goal on which you would like to be held accountable? Feel free to use the comment space on each of my accountability blogs, and I will cheer you on. Just let me know what your goal is, what you will be doing to meet it, and how often you will be reporting in.

  1. So glad to hear that your recovery process is going well! This recovering anorexic has no idea where her appetite suddenly rematerialised from in time for the festivities, but I’m not complaining in the slightest – in three months or less I’ve gone from pleasingly plump to looking old, sick and scrawny so it’s win/win for me if I spend a week stuffing my face!

    Someone is looking down on you and I; I say we both have much to be grateful for this Christmas 🙂

      • I think it all began with the pickling and preserving; because I was suddenly in the kitchen playing with food again, I once again became interested and began nibbling on bits and pieces here and there. It’s a good job I’m feeling the desire for food again, as we have a four-bird joint for tomorrow and are doing cider-roasted gammon for Boxing Day – so many leftovers to go with my pickled cabbages and eggs!

        I’m grateful to have met you too Hanna; your blog is an inspiration to me as I continue along my path towards health and wellness. If I have no choice but to be physically impaired then I might as well be impaired but healthy and fit! 🙂

          • It’s all thanks to my Tribble in all honesty! When I first came to stay with him he’d rescued me from the flatmate from hell, so I was frightened, had very low self-esteem and was a bit of a mess! Then we fell in love and I noticed that, while my health waned and my disability worsened, he wasn’t going anywhere and made an even bigger point of telling me that he loved the woman and not the body that carried her around.

            Everyone needs a Tribble in their lives; thanks to my Tribble I take the rough with the smooth and have learned to love being myself 🙂

  2. Happy Holidays, Hanna! Sounds like your health program is going well. Enjoy dinner out and everything about the day! Sending you all good wishes and good will.
