Christmas Eve

Just quickly checking in with a quick update on how my Christmas Eve went!

I started my day with an early workout which consisted of 50mins Moderate/Hard intensity followed by 50mins Easy on the bike. Then I did the usual stretching and replenished with a protein shake & some chocolate milk. For the rest of the day I helped my parents out tidying up and wrapping gifts for extended family.

This evening we celebrated Christmas Eve with my dad’s side down at Bondi Beach. We headed to my Aunt & Uncle’s place late afternoon and the weather was absolutely gorgeous throughout the evening. Exactly the way a summer Christmas should be!

It was awesome to catch up with cousin’s and just chill and chat. I had 2 glasses of champagne. I initially wasn’t going to drink…I had been sitting on the fence with this issue. But I set myself a 2 drink limit for the night and stuck with it. I’m so happy to not have restricted with food throughout the day prior to heading out tonight. I ate normally and consistently even though I was still petrified of the calories that are going to be consumed throughout the weekend. Dinner this evening was Roast Turkey, Quinoa & Veggie Salad, Cherry Tomato & Green Bean Salad, Smoked Salmon & Asparagus. Yay for variety and healthy food 🙂 For dessert we had a Christmas Log and homemade Rocky Road which I might add was in shape of a Christmas tree (my Aunt made this from scratch).

Honestly I don’t think tonight could have gone any better. It almost felt like I was back to my old self, yes I still had ED thoughts floating around in my head. For the most part I didn’t really pay much attention to those voices.

So now I just have to wait for the man in the red suit to pay me a visit 😉

I Hope You All Have A Wonderful Christmas Weekend!

    Merry Christmas!!! Great way to start the day too! I’m glad you were able to fight back at those ED voices. This may be the first year post-ED that I have really been living up the holidays. It’s nice to eat like a normal person. Eating cookies and not thinking twice about it is so liberating!!
