I’ve had a great time over this holiday season but when is it over?  Does anyone else feel like this?

    family, friend, work, etc. time. Too much of it.

    why do we feel like we have to make and eat everything under the sun for the holidays?

    I agree completely Teri, but I cannot resist. There is an unfinished yule log and some shortbread waiting for me in the kitchen.
    I am a trencherman. D’oh!

    The holidays were just there for me….no anticipation or excitement….our kids were in Israel, G man and I agreed not to exchange gifts, we gave the kids money for the trip, I didn’t put up any decorations, nothing, baking was less then previous years too. I think for me going to the Bahamas immediately after Thanksgiving and having my kids gone just didn’t allow for any holiday excitement. I usually love to buy presents but with the economy the way it is we didn’t thisyear. Not that I am complaining about not exchanging gifts, after all I did go to Europe for 2 weeks ove rt he summer and we are trying to buy a hosue in Florida, ……….it’s just that planning what to get for someone is the fun for me. I guess what I am trying to say is the holidays were over for me before they began. PLus my weight gain happened before Thanksgiving, I stopped working out for a couple of weeks…..but I am back in the groove of going to the gym for awhile. Did I answer the question?

    you did, Cheer.

    Sans – I also do not like to waste anything, so sometimes it’s hard trying to stop the eating when you don’t want to waste it. But if I can bring it to work and have the other vultures eat it, I’m good.

    I usually pack on around 8 pounds during Commercialized Holiday Hell. ( I live the South and we don’t cook healthy Holiday food – it makes baby Jesus cry).

    I try to take it in stride and just work out harder in Jan and Feb….

    This year has been the exception (I’ve lost around 12 pounds) ; however, I’ve been stressed and performing and teaching, traveling and working my arse off…..
    don’t hate me

    Shall I post a ‘post holiday’ boot camp workout regimen ? I’ll leave out the part where you get your heart crushed and lose your appetite….

    I feel like the scale is actually telling me that I’ve gained 20 pounds. Stop judging me, scale!!

    The holidays were challenging because of my diet. I’m doing a post about the program. I’m happy that I made it through with no cheating, loving the results, but like all diets I’m tired of it.

    Happy End of Holidays!!! Woo Hoo!! 🙂
