Yeah, so about that whole resisting temptations thing... Xmas recap and pics!


Thursday, December 27, 2012

So, I thought I had the whole sugar addiction thing under control. And then I made cookies Sunday for my family and my boyfriend's family (and for me). Chocolate chip, peanut butter chip and peanut butter blossoms. Guess what I didn't do? Control myself. One cookie after another after another since Sunday.

Ugh, just look at them. This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever.

I'm still keeping up my exercise streak. I forget how many days I'm up to, but I've exercised for at least ten minutes everyday since November 14.

As usual, family and friends came over Christmas Eve. It was fun, lots of laughs and lots of pictures. (My sister has all of the ridiculously goofy ones on her camera, which I might kidnap and upload because I love them). But here are some normal ones: boyfriend and me, and then cousin, grandpa, sister and me:





And this is what I got for Christmas from my family! Lots of good stuff. I'm excited about my external flash for my SLR! And my pink fleece from LLBean. SO comfy!


Please note the Hanson 2013 calendar and Hanson bumper stickers. (SO EXCITED!) Hanson is my all-time favorite band if you haven't figured that out already:


Mother Nature just dumped a ton of snow on us. I shoveled the front sidewalk, which took forever, and my upper back and arms are killing me. I don't normally do this, but damnit, that was my workout for today. I'll still do some yoga later though (with my new yoga mat!).


That's enough for now emoticon Happy Thursday!

    Your hair looks straight up out of a magazine in these pics! I could not have resisted those cookies either :)

    Beautiful pics! I had a hard time with the Christmas cookies too...they are just soooo good, but only my moms. My aunt sent us home with a bunch of hers, so I'm okay bringing those to work/donating and/or even throwing them out.

anyway, happy new year!

    I think the holiday season is hard for everyone. Take it as it comes and don't beat yourself up.

    That is awesome! I know what you mean about staying under control. I couldn't and now its ruining my healthy eating a few days later... So next year I am going to bring my own food.

Good job with the snow shoveling! Keep up the awesome streak too by the way!

    Sounds like a great time!

I also lost control over the past few days... but I'm determined to get back on track.

I have never shoveled snow in my life- looks like a lot of hard work! emoticon
