Oh, the weather outside is frightful. Okay, not really. It’s almost 80 degrees in LA. But Christmas is definitely right around the corner. And you know what that means — CHRISTMAS TREATS! Listen, I’ve had very little sugar these past few months, which has been fabulous for my waistline, but I’m getting a little bug-eyed. My wimpy sweet tooth is ready to dive into the nearest cookie platter, whether or not it’s meant for me.
Baby, I’m back! That’s right. Tanya read last month. Yes, she did. I mean, I didn’t go cray, cray and read a 100 books or anything. But unlike last month, I didn’t whine and pout and wait until the eve before my favorite link-up to finally crack open a new-to-me book. Nope. I waited until the week or two before … errr … just kidding … sort of.
I had such a difficult time this year picking my holiday treat. My get healthy journey is going good so I didn’t want to do anything that might derail my efforts. Or willpower. My willpower can be iffy or moody or finicky. At the same time, it didn’t feel right to not share a holiday treat either. After much consideration (seriously, I spent hours on Pinterest) I ultimately craved a cookie. And not an ordinary, boring cookie but the perfect ying yang cookie.
It seemed like an appropriate time for me to do another Three Things post since my last one was a year ago. Plus, I also had nothing else planned for today and I was in the mood for something light and sentimental. Funny how things work that way, right? Anyway, without further ado, three more things about me with a holiday flair.
My quest to get healthy remains happily on track. Inches are coming off, butt is shrinking and muscles are forming. All wonderful, great things that make me strut around my apartment like I’m the Queen of the World. Ain’t no mountain high enough! This get healthy lifestyle is so easy …. or not. I do strut around feeling proud of my progress and I also stare longingly into the fridge and whine about being hungry. I regularly want to quit because size ain’t nuthin’ but a number. And on and on it goes.
Tis the week of Thanksgiving which means it’s time for my annual Gratitude List. Normally, I do this over at Eat Laugh Purr but since I’m no longer regularly posting over there, it shall become a tradition here. Of course, Max always joined me and it wouldn’t feel right to exclude him, so please welcome back Max, aka the Coolest Cat.
