    This is the first holiday season that I'm enjoying without a sense of dread about how hard it will be to resist goodies and how much I'll binge when I lose my resolve to resist them. It feels amazing to have what I think are normal feelings about food, finally.

    I was stuck (or, reframing, "recalibrating") from July to October weight-wise but since I started the 4-month program in late October it seems to be creeping downward again, slowly. Very slowly- like five pounds since I started two months ago, so not the rapid weight loss I used to think was the goal. But I'm pleased. The gym portion is fun- I feel like a badass.

    Really fun stuff. I like reading about your mental adventures into food.. it makes me happy seeing people positive about eating. It really is one of those things that can be both a necessity and a pleasure while still being healthy and great feeling.

    Last year I went all-out on Christmas... beautiful duck dinner at a fancy place in the middle of a classy part of D.C. It was expensive and soooo worth it. I think everyone should enjoy fancy food at least once. This year I don't know exactly what we're doing, but I think we're changing it up and doing Japanese food for Christmas with some fancy sushi rolls.

    Scoreboard Houston for fancy business dinners picking up the bill! I went to a fancy party once for business and I pretty much got to know the food servers on a first name basis I hung out by the food tables so long. (This is also my default for parties.. if you have food, I will be near the food until it is gone or I am uncomfortably full.)

    I missed Thursday's workout, so I did 2 out of 3.
    Today I did my program with ankle weights on, which is a big deal for me
    because a couple of weeks ago I could barely do the standing leg work with NO weights!
    It's harder to keep the routine going when it gets interrupted by schedule changes.

    For the last 4 years, I've been getting deep tissue massage for my neck and arm problems.
    It's painful at times and NEVER relaxing.
    Well, Thursday I got a Swedish massage and I haven't been that relaxed in YEARS!
    I am thinking of switching to Swedish massage... I find it much more helpful for de-stressing.

    I did 2 out of 3 full body workouts again... WITH the ankle weights on.
    I did my 30 ab crunches every day.
    My eating was horrendous over the holidays.

    Food wise: I ate an entire juicy Lucy cowboy bacon hamburger on my own in 10 minutes. That pretty much describes my vacation lately.

    Exercise wise: I've started stretching and I'm not hesitating to do lots of walking.

    Hi, is there going to be a 2015 TypeC Health Exercise Challenge Thread?

    I don't think anyone is setting up a new fitness challenge like the one Udog ran in 2014. I could just change the name of this thread to include 2015.
