Whew!  Such a wonderful Christmas 2011 but now it's time for DETOX!
From all of the cookies, appetizers, turkey, breakfast casserole, chocolate dipped pretzels, cranberry, honey baked ham, rolls, Beer...etc!  
Have I given you a glimpse at all of the goodies that were consumed over the past week?  Ugh.  

Makes me completely sick just thinking about it.  I have a food that possible?   Don't get me wrong, my husband and I have our weak moments from time to time and definitely allow time to splurge, but this Christmas was a little out of control.  I'm not sure if we figured, "hey, we're running so we can EAT!" but whatever the reason, NO MORE EXCUSES!  It's back to our healthy eating!  Although we didn't go overboard and only had small amounts of the goodies, it's still time to DETOX!  Ha!

So, that means all of the leftover "Cookies for Santa" have now been put into giant, Ziploc bags for my husband to bring to work!  All of the other leftovers from the fridge have been tossed out...sad but true!  And that means tomorrow is a new day!  Waking up to oatmeal with a dash of cinnamon and pumpkin puree, followed by a morning run!  I am hoping to get in about 6-7 miles but that'll depend on the rain!  We have had  some cold, wet days here lately and although we needed the rain, I am ready for some long runs where I don't come home drenched and cold!  Ha!  

How about you?  
Did you let those Christmas goodies get the best of ya?  Or did you practice great self-control?

And the Houston Aramco Half Marathon is only 20 days away!  I can't believe it!  I have had the back injury set back, but hopefully I can really kick it up these coming weeks to make up for lost time!  Yikes!  I'm still working on my running playlist for the race and it's pretty good so far, I'll share with all of you once it's complete!  Am I really going to do this?  CRAZY!  I hope lots of our family and friends decide to come out and show their support...I know it's going to be an incredibly emotional day for my husband and I.

I was ok with the Christmas helps that I don't bake anything and only bring home stuff from other peoples house so I can be a bit selective at what is brought home. 20 days until your half, you will do great!

Definitely had lots of sweets, too! Now that we're back home, it's in our control again. I was amazed how good a salad tasted for lunch--I think my body is craving fresh food!
