Here I sit on Christmas Eve. We've been to church, had our supper, looked at Christmas lights, and....have eaten again. I love seeing the excitement of my three year old when he's looking at all of his presents under the tree or singing to me about Santa coming to town, but I also love cookies, cake, egg nog, ice cream, and mashed potatos(thats a little random, but its true)!
This year I am going to try harder. We are staying at our house for Christmas because my husband is on call for work. Therefore, I will have control over everything I eat. I'm consious of everything that I put in my mouth and how much I'm eating. However, this weekend we'll be traveling to my in-laws place. My mother-in-law has many baked goods and serves lots of food. This will be harder for me because I LOVE to graze. Grazing makes it a lot harder to keep track of how much a person is eating.
I'm on a mission, this year, to make the holiday's a good one and not have to loosen my belt!
Enjoy your Christmas and I'll let you know how things go!
