Finally, it's over!

Whoa I'm glad that the holidays are leaving......I love my family and friends, I love the lights, the music, the fun, the festivities but most of all I LOVE the food! I didn't do horrible and I'm really proud that I managed to hold it together during all the various get togethers but the baked goods at home have got to go. I did wise up and decide to make some WW friendly haystacks but still a nibble here an there is slowly killing me. The worst part is realizing that you had ironclad will power at the party and didn't eat the piece of apple cake that you wanted only to come home and scarf down a cookie or two and realize that you could have those anytime you wanted!! I mean, really WTH is up with that. I can make cookies in my sleep but my grandma only makes apple cake at Christmas - stupid stupid stupid Barbie! At least I didn't eat the cake AND cookies!

Like I said that holidays are fun but I am really needing some routine and order back in my life. Somehow baking, shopping and wrapping doesn't constitute a visit with GYM. Not that I had time for GYM - really it was midnight before I sat down most days but my lack of exercise is just a reminder of how good I feel when I do hit it hard! It's nice to relax and not track every bite but it's equally as nice to get back to reality and back on track! So today I'll be visiting the weights and then tomorrow I'll be back at my spin class.

On the Santa front - he was really good to us this year. I got a digital camera, clothes, a digital frame and a ton of other stuff. We got the kiddo the game RockBand which has a guitar, drum set and microphone - GOD help me, watching - watching my middle aged, balding Ken doll husband, dance around our living room, headbanging - had to be the funniest thing I've seen in a while. He was more excited than our 11 year old. His excitement, I must admit, was adorable! Watching him sitting in the living room floor, in his pj's, playing with his new "toys" was hillarious......yeah, I'm talking about the hubby here! Overall it was busy, hectic, fun and whole lot of work but well worth it. I have now officially retired my baking pans and candy making utensils for another year........now I'm off to scope out some healthy recipes for the upcoming week as my rocking it out hubby has overindulged a bit too!

HUGS to you all & I hope you all had a great Christmas!

YAY for digital cameras, now we don't have to wait for pictures from you ;p. Sounds like you had a nice Christmas and didn't do too bad. Maybe grandma has soem left over apple cake? If not then at least you have a better came plan for the next holiday or next Christmas. Thanks for mentioning the haystacks, I think I need to make those. My sweet tooth is aliove and well this month but regular chocolate isn't the best choice.
Have fun reconnecting iwth GYM!

I'm with you sister! I'm so glad that Christmas is over... On my way out the door from Christmas dinner my two sisters had the nerve to offer a bunch of fudge and carmels for me to take home... I think screaming NO! got the point across though...

Sounds like Santa was very good to you. I hope you get your gym time this week and still find time to enjoy the toys Santa left you!!!

Sounds like you did a great job getting through Christmas without too many hiccups....I think I fell off the wagon, then ate the wagon, and then the horses that were pulling the wagon....but it's amazing how doing that will make you crave the good stuff.
