Then came Christmas. For many people, Christmas gives an unwanted gift of a few pounds. For me this gift was 5.6 pounds. I guess Santa was upset I was eating too many of his cookies or some rock star was overly naughty.In addition to the cookies, I ate too many chips and large celebration dinners with desert chasers. Although I had a few hard training days, I took off both Wednesday AND Thursday. I could have bailed on going to Weight Watchers and faced the scale next week but I chose to face the music like a true headliner. I'm hoping these pounds aren't sticky. What I gained in one week I could lose in one week, at least that's the plan.
