One more holiday to go!!

Monday, December 31, 2012

Since my teenage daughter often misses out on doing things with friends because of my work schedule, I allowed her to have a small gathering of friends yesterday. I was picking at the food the entire time. Ugh.

With this last celebration at my house over, I can throw away what is left of the seasonal goodies and get back, REALLY get back, to not having temptations all over the house. I regifted a lot of the chocolate, and made sure the rest was out when guests were around. The cookies are nearly gone.

During last night's festivities I made myself invisible for a while by starting a workout space in my basement. In other words, I set up a television down there to watch while I hoop, row and treadmill. That project has been long overdue.

I am off to spend New Year's with out of town friends and they have promised to fill me with veggies while I visit, bless their hearts. There won't be much working out going on but I will do mini-crunches in the car while driving and make up for it when I get home.

I have just had to face that fact that these two weeks would be filled with deviations from my "new normal" and learn to adapt to life in the real world. I can't hide at home forever. Learning to manage parties, dining out and interruptions are all part of the process too.

I wish you all a happy, safe, prosperous and wonderful 2013 filled with enough pitfalls to bring insight but many more successes.
