I've been MIA lately. I'm still in recovery from the holidays. Work has been pretty crazy. By the time I work out and get home I just haven't felt up to getting back on the computer and checking up on everyone. This weekend I'll get back to reading. I'm avoiding checking to see how many updates I've missed, but I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone's doing!

So I posted a gain this week. I can't say I'm all that broken up about it because I weighed in this morning too and it was back off. I think the scale is bouncing around right now because I'm still getting back to my normal routine. I've just really struggled with the holidays this year. I'm so glad they're over. I'm apparently still not to that stage of weight loss where I can trancend having food shoved at me by my family. That's going to be a work in progress for, oh, the rest of my life.

Next week is the end of the challenge at my gym. My trainer said that she's doing her own prize of a new workout outfit to whichever of her clients does the best, and it's down to me and one other girl. I really need new workout gear - so I'm really pushing for it! If I win the whole enchilada I'll get another 12 free training sessions! I would absolutely love that, but the truth is that I feel a bit discouraged because I think it'll probably go to a man. Guys tend to lose weight faster and gain muscle faster - that's how this will be judged - so I'm guessing it'll be a man. Not that I'm letting it stop me from pushing myself! I'm just not getting my hopes up.

I hope you've all had a good first week of the new year! Happy Friday!
