So you may have noticed my little yoga girl making her slow journey across the top of my blog. I'm kind of surprised at my progress. I haven't been "clean" in my eating, mostly because, three weeks into the year, we have had two birthday parties, a couple of major NFL game parties, and a very busy work schedule that resulted in a couple fast food runs. At the conclusion of each event, I tell myself, this is the last one. It's time to get serious. But then something else comes up. I'm trying to find a balance. Like, if we go to a party where pizza is served, I have one slice and avoid things like sausage as much as possible. But I refuse to be the one in the corner, noshing from a bag of celery sticks I brought in my purse and trying not to smell the pizza across the room. I've met those people. They generally do not seem to be enjoying themselves. Plus, I figure, this is real life. It does not end when you reach the goal weight. At least, I hope it doesn't end. So there has to be a way to find the balance. So far, the approach is working.
