Time to bake.........ugh

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

Well it's tuesday and I'm finally going to start my baking. I really don't know why I do it any more, I don't have a big (immediate) family any more. But, I do take some to my hairdresser and I'll give some to my daughter and I KNOW my DH will eat most of them......he is a sweet nut. Also, now that my mil is with us she likes them, the problem is ME. This will be a big test for me but I have to keep in mind MY GOAL and that is to make it through the holiday's without gaining weight.

It's still very stressful around here but, I'm trying and I mean trying to stay calm. I try to stay focused on "me" and and not let everything get to me because I know it effects my weight. I've been listening to one of my tapes that relates to stress and it even mentions to exercise to release some of it. I have already gone downstairs and rode my bike while reading my book and even did half of my
ST workout, I'll do the rest later. I've been noticing how my neck and back have been hurting more and I'm even having more headaches and I know why too, it's just trying to get, as they say, my ducks in order.

Everyone have a great day and thank you for all your kind words.

    Planning to do my candy-making this weekend and baking next week. I'm sure that a few pieces of junk will end up in my mouth but as long as I plan for it, I am not going to worry about it. Not like it happens every day - thank goodness!

    Merry Christmas to you. I pray that you will find some peace and strength in the new year.

    Do you enjoy baking? I love to bake, but I know I don't want to eat it, so I have done less every year. It is just hubby and me and my hubby is a sweet nut too. He doesn't need to have it around either. Keep a positive attitude and keep smiling. You will make it through the Holidays.

    I've avoided baking because I'm worried I'll eat most of the end product! Be glad you have someone else in the house who will take care of most of that for you.
    I've finally decided that I HAVE to bake cookies for an elderly friend in a nursing home. She wants both lemon and pineapple - and the cookies are made from cake mixes - that's 2 mixes, about 40 cookies each... she only wants a dozen lemon and a dozen pineapple - That's 56 cookies left over!!!! They will go to her caregivers!
    I will bake them. I WILL NOT eat them - okay, maybe just one of each flavor...
    Stay focused, determined, and positive.
