Fit Friday (eh hem) Sunday

So, one of the blogs I follow is ItsAlmostNaptime. It's great, Missy's great, yada yada yada. Anyway a few weeks ago she started a "Fit Friday" thing to help everyone get fit for the holidays. "Hot for the Holidays", you could say.

So, I saw her post this and thought, Oh, yeah I'll have to do that. And went on my merry little way. Then one day I pulled on some jeans and thought, "Dang it, these shrank!" Reality hit and figured out that nope, I'd gained weight.

Confession time - I've gained weight since going back to work. And you know who is to blame? McDonalds. No, not the fries. The stupid coffee! Coffee isn't bad you could say... but when you drink a large mocha at least once a day, it adds up pretty quickly. I checked out the calorie content and almost fell off my chair when I saw the grim news... A large mocha has close to 400 calories. 400. Basically I was drinking a hot milk shake each and every morning.

Anyway this week I had a come to Jesus moment and cut the coffee completely. But I didn't magically lose the weight I gained, so now I'm off to start this diet. Ugh.

Why post here about my secret mocha shame? Because if I don't have people nagging at me to keep it up I'll come up with 100 reasons to not eat right or work out every single week.

Anyway, look on Friday for my first weigh in (no I will not post the number!) and my goals. Now that it's in cyberland I have to do it... right?
