Christmas Fluff

It’s been a while since I posted anything. Surprise surprise! ‘Tis the season of busy schedules, right? As much as I love the Holiday Season, I am ready to finish up 2013 and start 2014 off and kick back into gear health-wise. Last year I managed to keep up semi-daily workouts while I was consuming all the unhealthy holiday goodies I was eating but this year.. I didn’t do so well. It’s not really that I ate an abundance of unhealthy things but the stress of the season got me good. Between holiday shopping, personal stress and planning for the future, oh boy, my emotional eating came back in full force. Emotional eating has always been one of the biggest struggles for me even as far back as when I was a kid in Elementary school. It makes it doubly hard when you’re surrounded by all the unhealthy comfort foods and I have a HUGE sweet tooth which makes all the yummy baked Christmas goods all the more tempting!


All that eating wouldn’t be so bad, though, if I had kept up daily workouts. Confession: I didn’t! I think I maybe gained a pound per week the last 3-4 weeks. And thus.. CHRISTMAS FLUFF is born! But it’s ok! Because a new year is on the Horizon and I plan to get rid of the extra fluff that I’ve amassed over the last month. I even set up a Facebook Accountability group to help combat the evil unhealthy temptations this season brings. SO MUCH FOR THAT! I completely embarrassed myself as a good role model. Hehe!

Anyway, now is the time of year where everyone gets amped up about getting healthier. They set those New Years Resolutions and renew gym memberships! The trick is being one of the few that not only achieve those healthy resolutions but adopt them as a way of life. Don’t just set a resolution to set one, make a decision to make a LIFE change. The evil temptation of the holidays are (almost) behind us, time to get back on track and get back in action.

So I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and are gearing up for the best year yet! Let me know if you shared in something delicious and evilly tempting during the Holiday Season. Where are my fellow sweet toothers at?
