Tis the Season... to eat.

Today is the glorious THIRD day of my weekend. Thank goodness for three day weekends. I'm truly excited for the holiday season this year, because my work finally gave in (after crazy low attendance) and gave us the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve off.

We used to get two hours off on Christmas Eve, that's it. But since most people just didn't come in those two days we get em off now. Woohoo!

That's not the only reason I'm excited... We have our own house for the first time since my husband and I got married. That means a bigger tree! (Does a happy little crafter's dance) I get to decorate it and everything. Oh and Lights!

Only downside? Food. There is SO much food that time of year. And if you work in an office like I do, you know that everybody's wife is smart enough to say "Take this to work or I'll just eat it all!" Well guess who's at work? ME! This year I vow to only eat what looks crazy fantastic, and to keep my portions small. I don't NEED 20 bland boring butter cookies. Right?

I have to allow myself to have a little bit of fun and freedom with food, otherwise I get depressed and eat like... the butter out of my fridge.

On top of all of it... It gets so cold and snowy hear I just slug around the house most of the day.

Maybe when we get our mondo tax return I'll buy a wii fit. That will get me moving in the coldest of days...

Ok, comment time after the short post. Are you getting excited for the Holiday Season coming, or are you (like me) worried about impending weight gain??

I cant wait for the holidays to hurry up and get here. It's just sooo hot where I live.. and the fall and winter is the only time you can really enjoy being outside. The yummy treats do worry me as I make wayyyy too many of them.. but I plan on sending them home with all the skinny peeps this year LOL!! My neighborhood decorates like crazy.. so we have to keep up .. which is great fun.

I am very excited for the holiday's, and am each year. This year is special since we will be having our first baby Christmas.
Food choices will be hard, as I am not supposed to gain too much weight for my pregnancy. Let's see how I do...

When I was pregnant I did so good until about my 7th month. In fact, that is the weight I'm STILL Trying to lose, so kudos on your journey! The better you can keep it off now, the better you'll be after the baby!

And if you can... breastfeeding is a great way to burn that fat off...
