I'm not a scrooge AT ALL, at least I don't think so, but this time of year my healthy lifestyle SUCKS! I try hard, but fail often. The goodies, the business, the stress, it all gets to me.
Here's how my month has gone... cookie baking, decorating, gift buying, something every.single.night., Christmas party, wrapping, more shopping, open a new business... what?, the list is absolutely endless. I finish one thing, and three more have added themselves to the end.
I am trying to eat well, but failing miserably. Trying to workout, but I'm exhausted.
Here's the good news... this happened last year. Then New Year's Day came, and I truly had a fresh start. I was sick of eating crap, and had plenty of time to workout again. So I did, and I regained some motivation, and I lost 35 pounds.
So maybe this is the most wonderful time of the year. Maybe it's just the break that my body and mind need to be ready to do this one more time. Does that give me permission to gorge myself on everything? No, but enjoy this time. Enjoy your family. Eat a little, workout a little, and love the moment that you are in. Then, January first, I'll meet you here.
