There is always one week during Christmastime wherein I am busy from sun up to sun down. This was that week.
My days have been full of sewing up mini stockings for teacher gifts, baking, running errands and enjoying some Christmas movies with my kids after school. If I had a treadmill in my living room I would've gladly walked on it during the movie I watched each afternoon.
Or not. My busy week is reaching the point of exhausting me.
I've been enjoying my extremely full week and I'm glad I've gotten so many loose ends tied up in preparation for Christmas. I know all my shopping, crafting, baking and everyday things I've accomplished this week have caught me up so that next week I can relax a little and get more intentional exercise in.
My grandmother's fudge recipe also came out rather well this year. I know this from *ahem* personal tasting. And I must say... score one point for me for keeping the family recipe alive. With both my mother and her mother gone it just makes it special to me if the fudge comes out well. (It involves marshmallows and sugar and boiling and much care... my mom always had a special touch with the fudge. )
So, as for the challenge I have not done any exercise this week, nor have I drank much water. Water is always a challenge for me during the cooler months. But I have enjoyed treats in somewhat moderation and the scale is maintaining. I'm pleased.
I'm also pleased that I know I'm not going to throw in the towel and gorge for the next two weeks, but I am going to continue enjoying some Christmas festivities and foods I don't eat the other eleven months of the year.
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to share how your holiday plans are coming along.
