I admittedly don't have a busy Christmas season ahead me. Our oldest daughter and her family are spending their first Christmas in their new home...so we are traveling there for the holiday. Hubby and I consequently, decided to keep our holiday decorating to a minimum since it's just the two of us.
Quite honestly, we're enjoying it. After 25 years of raising a family, it's already been kinda of fun carving out time to do some things we just want to do. We have dinners and card playing planned with friends and holiday activities like "Shop with a Cop", Secret Santa and "Backpack for Kids Food Drive" at work. BUT! The plan that's really motivating me is my decision was to start my New Year today!
Yep, I will rejoin Weight Watchers at work today (I'm a lifetimer...who just needs to get rebooted and get some chub around her ol' middle reduced a bit.) I've set the exercise goal to run a St. Patricks Day Fun Run on March 12th in under 30 minutes. (That's my goal and I'm sticking with it!)
I'm actually looking forward to avoiding all the '"goodies" that seem to appear in school and office work rooms this time a year as I truly start my New Year today! I know, I DO sound a bit boring, but in the end, I physically and mentally feel sooo much better avoiding such temptations and setting goals helps me get through. This is a total intentional mission for me as seriously you guys, I LOVE sugar cookies decorated with candy, my mom's fudge, my husband's ginger cookies, all those dips at work, well...you get it. So now I'm curious, do you indulge or set goals to avoid?
And oh how I wish I had a better metabolism!!
