To be or not to be?

Have I exercised since being on vacation? Kinda sorta. If you include the many stores I've been to over the past few days, I'm sure I've burned a couple hundred calories. I know I can do better than I am but I need some down time. I would like to get back to the Nyssa that enjoyed exercising and was motivated to do better. Shoot, there are those days when I just plain ole don't feel like being active so I don't do it. That's not good this early in the process. Anyway, know that I'm trying to do better and act on my words.

As I set out on this journey to lose weight, I am realizing how difficult it is to do so around the holidays. I bought a caramel cake from a co-worker that I had to pick up Tuesday. Before I could get the cake in the car good, I was making plans to cut it instead of taking it to my grandmother's home for Christmas. That poor cake didn't stand a chance from the jump. Once I made it home and got settled, I cut a slice. This had to be the best caramel cake that I had ever tasted!! You know how you normally feel guilty about eating foods that you know you shouldn't? Not I....It felt sooo right, it couldn't be wrong. By the way, Brittany and Ronnie both our helping me eat it.
