True Confessions: post holiday edition

It is Tuesday, which means it is True Confessions time at the Sisterhood. We've been instructed by the lovely Christie O to confess the good and the bad.

I'll start with the good:
•the almond bars are now gone.
•I made a huge crock pot full of vegan ratatouille and ate tons of it at Christmas & for several days afterwards.
•I used light ingredients in many of the dishes I made (but sadly, the almond bars I demolished were NOT light).
•I did not have any pecan pie.
•I made a turkey breast in the crock pot I won from the Shrinkingjeans vlog challenge. It was A.MAZ.ING and I will never cook turkey in the oven again.
•I ran 6.3 miles the day after Christmas & worked out for 1.5 hrs today.
•I bought myself a dot-com & new blog design for Christmas!

Now for the bad:
•cookies, candy, cheesy potatoes, and almond bars.
•the above in excess.
•too little, too late on the exercise front.
•there are still cookies, stroope, ham, and pretzel m&ms in the house mocking me.

Needless to say, I desperately need to get back on track. I fear I am getting dangerously close to that decade I said I'd never see again and that scares me. While I'm sure I didn't gain the 11 pounds the average person puts on between Thanksgiving & New Years, I've gained some. I am so glad we have a new challenge and a new year to start fresh. So, here's to starting anew!

  1. only one more holiday to put behind us! thankfully i don't drink as many calories (most of the time) as I eat.

  2. who the heck actually puts on 11 pounds during the holidays? not that I doubt it could happen. It just seems...ridiculous that anyone would let that happen to themselves. :p I wonder how many I've gained...Hmm.... :)

    Let's rock this new year and new challenge!!

  3. I think we all need that new challenge to start tomorrow. I think you are doing fine. I should be as inspired as you are. The good news is that you inspire me.

  4. I'm excited for the new challenge too! High-5s for the good, hugs for the bad, and hurrah for moving on!


Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!

Happy New Year 2020
