We have been celebrating Christmas for a few days now and I've totally slacked here...
My back is better, but has not allowed me a LONG run like I would have hoped, being so close to the half! That's okay though, I am determined to finish and I will FINISH with a smile(hopefully) on my face!
A few days ago, I ran in the pouring rain! It started off cloudy, turned to sprinkles and then at mile 2, POURING!!! Ha, I enjoyed every second of it. There was something so freeing about running through the rain ON PURPOSE, ya know? My socks were drenched, my hair was dripping, as I tried to wipe the sweat from my face-I ended up covered in more water...but it was all okay, it felt AWESOME! Crazy, but true!
For our family gathering last night, I made a delicious dip...
1 container of Greek PLAIN Yogurt
1/2 packet ranch
1/2 cup turkey bacon pieces
1/2 package 2% shredded cheese-or cheese of your choice!
Mix and serve with veggies and whole wheat crackers! So yummy!! ...and sneaky too!
Merry Christmas to all of you!
I hope you are finding ways to stay healthy during the holiday season!
Never arrive at a party on an empty stomach, you'll eat much more than planned and feel the guilt afterward. Grab a quick snack on your way-handful of almonds, fruit...anything!
Last night, my husband and I were starving by the time we came back home and instead of serving the meal, we decided to binge on all of the yummy appetizers..
."BIG MISTAKE, HUGE"(name that movie!!) We felt awful afterward, bloated and totally not hungry for the meal...so, where did we go wrong? Ugh, allowing ourselves to get to the point of STARVING! Ha! And having NO self control! A very weak moment for us!
This year, suggest a family walk AFTER the meal! It'll help keep the focus away from FOOD and more on the simple part of just being together and enjoying time with family!
Plus, you'll encourage healthy living for the people that you love!
