Gingerbread party day!

Sunday, December 06, 2009

Today is another day.. it is also the day of my 6th annual gingerbread party...so there will be cookies and candies and eggnog and hot apple cider and pizza and all kindsa bad for you stuff..but i did do good using a lot of sugar free and fat free ingredients in some of the appetizers and drinks.

I also had my first alcohol free day in december yesterday which im pretty proud of. I know the alcohol is a big factor in my weight gain since I was melting it off wonderfully when I was in that controlled environment of my truck and unable to drink. But I am not even trying to put myself under the kind of stress of just dropping it.. I'd love to quit smoking, quit drinking, quit the sugar and the fatty foods and every other bad habit I have all at once but that is a recipe for disaster. Of course I say after the party I'll....and after the cruise I'll....well and after the holidays I'll... but you know I think theres always one more thing to excuse myself from taking control of my life back...

we took some pictures to send to dans family up north. The cancer and the job loss and the whole world turned upside down we've been going through the last five months has dramatically limited what we can and cant do for the holidays this year..and boy oh boy when I started going through the pictures it was like looking at someone else. I lost so much of that weight how did it come back and I not take control before that happened! I felt like an ugly cow... some of the pictures are cute but my sister is reshooting us this afternoon not that i'll be thinner but i just have such a hard time finding any i like to print and frame because welll.... im in them. lol

I think I found a challenge team to join just waiting on an email! That will get things fired up for me. I found personally when you take a large group and split them into small groups with challenges and goals to reach together in competition with the other small groups..it lights that fire under me and gets me moving...so keeping my fingers crossed.

Well good luck to ya'll for a day of meeting your goals. Somedays every moment you meet your goal is a celebration!

Thanks for being here sparkfriends!

My sister has the mom and one sister from the first litter and my niece has gizzys sister and brother from the first litter. the dad died last year at 27 people years old... yes i am a cat person too but i couldnt keep them when i went on the road..they are now with my daughter.
