It's about 10:00 on Christmas Eve and I am ready for bed! This is the traditional day we have our Christmas celebration and open gifts with my family. We prefer to be home on Christmas morning so we open gifts with them on Christmas Eve. And part of the celebration is, of course, food. So to prepare myself I got my lazy butt up this morning to run at 6:30. I was so proud to log 5 miles before the eating frenzy would begin.
I wish I could say I did well with the food temptations, but I indulged in everything from bean dip to chips to carmel corn and pumpkin bread. All of this for two meals this day, both lunch and dinner. At one point I actually felt like I'd eaten too much and I hate that feeling. But, it's just a day and I can move on. I avoided the candy and cookies so I still consider the day a bit of a success. We head back over there tomorrow afternoon, but I'm okay with more indulgences. I feel confident that I'll jump right back on program come Sunday.
Super exciting event of the day, I am now the proud owner of one of these.
Merry Christmas everyone!
