Realistic Holiday Health

We just passed Halloween and now have bags of candy tempting us by saying it’s okay to eat 1 or 10 pieces for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner.  Without missing a beat, I’ve seen close to 20 (so far) images with workout guides and the horrors of gaining weight over the last two months of the year.  The incentive is to lose your holiday weight now and not wait (weight lol) until the New Year to declare your new super awesome fitness goals.  I think it’s a bit presumptuous of anyone to start shoving protein shakes or whatever weight loss thing down anyone’s throat or assume we are all planning to go into a food coma by sitting at the dining table shoveling mashed potatoes in our mouths in a last ditch effort to have one more bite in the name of Thanksgiving or other holiday meals.

Transition Pieces

The weather is finally cooling down and the days will start getting shorter.  This cuts down on a lot of activities that can be done outside but how do you inject fun in your routine through the cooler months?

This Fall and upcoming holiday season I have challenged myself to tackle a new kind of craft.  I usually lose my shit for the Christmas holiday because I’m that person.  I am a few years away from the ugly sweater that has dough and icing stains on it while I force my family to take awkward pictures to capture the moment(s).  As a child, I would dedicate hours to Martha Stewart’s shows learning new tips and tricks (back when her show was better and it was just her for the hour and her crafts).  I intend on making wreaths.  One day I will showcase how I decorated my son’s nursery.  I made flowers and vines for the jungle theme I choose.  It looked awesome but the amount of insects that I attracted, I will never do something like that again for a kid’s room.  I didn’t realize they would want to invade a room with fake flowers but I lived and learned.

The  few wreaths I’ve come across on Pinterest look awesome but they’re so overpriced.  Stay tuned for my adventures in crafting!  I plan on making something for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  What are you getting into?  Taking any risks? Learning anything new?  Let me know!
