The Blue Box's Journal, 19 December 2012

Holiday Party last night, the food was wonderful and detrimental to my diet, just as I had suspected. Although my first plate was filled with roasted veggies and fruit. So I started out well, but then it just went out of control on my second and third plate. (Hey I used the tiny dessert plates, don't judge me!)

Winter break has officially begun, which is fantastic, because I don't need to go to work for two weeks! Hooray! But I can't just lounge around the house all day, as much as I would love to... As I was updating my exercise diary I realized that going to work for 8 hours a day burns around 550 calories! I wonder what little activities I can sneak in to increase my calories burned...
103.2 lb Lost so far: 11.4 lb.    Still to go: 1.2 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Enjoy your time off! Don't kill yourself over a few sweets. You have two weeks to go for the gold until you go back to work. :)

Do you have pets or kids? One of my daily goals is to get up and play more with them. I'm not sure how many calories that would burn, but maybe it would help a little bit.

Oh I saw in your bio you do have a pup! How did you come up with your username? I'm just curious because there's a show I'm sort of obsessed with and I thought of it as soon as I saw your name.

iamachristianjesusfreak, thanks! I know I'm going to go waaay over on my calories when I'm home, so I'm trying to do some preventive damage control. :) And whenever I say I shouldn't have this cookie/chocolate/sweet my fiancé chimes in and says, but it's Christmas, some help he is!

mntwinsfan, yes I plan on annoying the heck out of my little doggie during this break. :) I loooooooooove Dr. Who, so that is how I came up with the user name and my signature tag. I can't wait until the Christmas special!! I live in the US so I have to wait until it is up on the Xbox Marketplace, but it's one of my favorite things about the holiday season! :D
