Tis the Season!

Thursday, December 20, 2012

As most of you know, my work gave me a nice bonus the other day. It put me in a really festive mood! I made a nice fruit and candy basket for my co-workers last night. When they first saw it, they were joking around saying they bet it was soy & vegan chocolate or other healthy items & no good fattening food. =) They all love dark chocolate and caramel, so I made sure to get a lot of that! Everyone keeps walking around going "mmmmm". I am now thinking about making one for my Mommom and maybe one other one. I just need to get the fillers for it! I forgot how much I like doing last minute projects like that. =)

I am still super excited for the holiday! Some more gift items I ordered were delivered yesterday, so I will wrap them tonight. Oh - I have to wrap up the rest of the marshmallows. After that, I will be almost done! This weekend I will be baking cookies & dipping the spoons into chocolate. Man, I don't know what I will do when Christmas is over. Thats right - I will be working 9-12 hours a day!

Also, I want to use the treadmill tonight! If I get the chance, I will do another search for 5K. I want to sign up for one, but I haven't found a good one. I know there aren't too many choices this time of year. Maybe this weekend I will map out a local course and run my own. I just don't want my legs to be super sore on Christmas Day when I have to help out my Mom with dinner.

I was 161 on the scale this morning - but I want to wait until after Christmas to get my official weight. With my challenges, I like to be close to the weigh-in days before I count it!

Hopefully everyone has a wonderful holiday season! The new year is approaching so fast!

    That basket looks awesome! Good luck finishing up your Christmas presents as well! Hopefully you'll be able to find a good 5K, or at least a good place to run a 5k. Good luck!

    I love your baskets, they're beautiful and yummy looking. I also love your attitude about the holidays. So many people just can't or don't choose to enjoy the holiday season and find good things. I hope you have a wonderful holiday and that you find a great 5k to run in. If not, make your own!
