Progress Update

Before Thanksgiving, I was doing great and making progress.  I somehow allowed myself to get derailed though.  I planned on Thanksgiving dinner being my first cheat MEAL.  However, my cheat meal turned into a cheat DAY, and my cheat day turned into four cheat days.  Yes, I did some damage.  My weight was right back up to where it was when I began.  Luckily, it was mostly water weight, and I'm now back to where I was before Thanksgiving.  This did put me behind though. So, now I'm busting my ass even harder.  I was doing 45 minutes of cardio twice per day.  I'm now doing an hour twice per day.  
I decided that I'd better just live on the stepmill for the next 15 weeks.  However, my soleus in my right leg is apparently pissed about all that stepping up.  I'm not sure if it's tendonitis or what, but I'm taking it slower on the stepmill and using the treadmill instead when I need to.  
I've also been making a conscious effort to do more stretching, and my flexibility is already back to where it needs to be!!!
Q and I are taking a very short trip to South Korea in a few days because I was asked to be on a talk show there!!!  I'm going to do my best not to fall off the diet wagon while we're away.  I'm not at all excited about the long flight, but I can't wait to see Korea!  I couldn't pass up this opportunity, even though the timing is horrible.  When I return, I'm sure I'll have a few stories to share with you!!  
BTW, 2012 is right around the corner! Have you decided on any resolutions? Fitness resolutions and goals??  You MUST have goals to achieve success!!!

isn't it funny how one day of bad eating leads to several days of bad eating. ..Thanks a lot Thanksgiving.
