Couple of issues that I just shrugged off beforehand that I thought I could be tough against.
Holidays: New Years and Christmas (eve and the day for both.) I did not take into account how much food there would be and even with light grazing there was no way I could stand a chance.
One of my closest friend's marriage: Well you can think one night can't be that bad, but it was three nights of food. Combine that with how late the meals were and it was just not a good combination for myself and my "diet".
Really though for both it's one of those things that is to be expected and I am not down at all looking back. Yes I could have worked out at this crossfit gym, but I made choices to spend time with friends I rarely see, to enjoy myself during times with family, and just treat myself when I've been stressed about a lot of things going on in my life.
On a positive note, I am slimmer in my waist and my arms are slightly bigger. If I just keep plugging away I am sure I'll get to where I want to be for my fitness and overall health goals.
Happy New Years!
