Today's the first day of Kwanzaa! It's all about imani (faith), baby.

So, my totals for the day were over 1,000 calories for the first time since surgery. I'm not sure what came over me, but it was just like pre-op. I wasn't emotional; I just ate because I wanted to eat. I'm up early this morning and I still feel completely gross.
I did four "miles" of a Leslie Sansone workout today. It felt good to get back to my exercise regimen, even though I ruined it later with that insane eating spell.
