With the holidays approaching it is time to make a plan. We will be leaving for vacation in a few weeks, I have girlfriends coming over this weekend for movie night and many Christmas parties and activities going to happen.
When the activities are here it is much easier since I have control over what is served. I love this time of year and I love to decorate for fall and Christmas. But I also do a lot of baking for friends at this time. Need to check out spark for some new cookies recipes and bread recipes that will cut down on fat and sugar. That will be my first goal. Then make a list of recipes for our party. Be sure to include lo-cal beverages and some fruit and vegetable trays. Perhaps serve some dips for those not watching there waist line.
Mainly I need to keep on exerciseing. The weather is changing and less likely will be out walking and jogging. So need to get out the tapes and keep moving at this time.
On vacation I just talked to my dad and all the foods they mentioned were high fat foods. So I told him not to worry about fixing much since we will be busy at Sea World and such places they probably won't have to worry to much about dinner. We will have a traditional dinner on Thanksgiving, but you have to live so will just make sure I stop when full. I think I will bring along some snacks for us to have just in case.
November 1st we start using our holiday dinner ware. The kids get excited and it is just festive and fun. Hope everyone has a great holiday season.
