Happy December 3rd readers! Despite the cloudy weather I experienced today, my Christmas spirit is not drenched (See what I did there??). I actually enjoy cold, rainy weather. The first half of my day was spent doing laundry. Exciting stuff. However, a mommy-daughter lunch at Coco’s made up for 3 1/2 hours of washing, drying, and folding. After that, we made a quick stop at the store for some essential groceries A.K.A. salted caramel hot chocolate and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. What is it about the holidays that makes our shopping carts so unhealthy?? One word: tradition. That one word can justify all things unhealthy, ranging from eggnog and hot chocolate to cookies and pies. Well, it doesn’t really justify, but, in the spirit of Christmas, the details are blurred. Some say “Holiday calories don’t count.” Tell that to my body when it is screaming from pain after post-Christmas workouts. Thank God Christmas only happens once a year. Oh the struggle!!
Only 22 days until Christmas. Stay merry readers!!
