Healthy Countdown To Christmas- Week 3

18 December 2013

It's week three, you guys, which means we only have one more week to go until our inner child comes to life.  But I'm sure you already knew that and didn't need a 'healthy countdown to Christmas' reminder, right?  And I'm also pretty sure that the majority of our child-like behaviours have probably already started to come out by now, because I know mine has.  Then again, it really doesn't take a whole lot to bring mine out.  Coffee, chips, and new necklaces are just a few of the things that tend to make me go all giddy.  

Speaking of chips, I think I'm starting to forget what they actually taste like.  Did I mention that being dramatic is one of my child-like behaviours that I posses?  Since I didn't eat chips this week (does nachos count?), let's take a look at how I did over the last few days.

The amazing:
- I dragged my butt to the gym, not once, but twice.  To some this may seem oh so very minor, but not to this girl over here.  Insert more child-like behaviours.  When you haven't went in months a while, it's really not easy doing the walk of shame to the front desk so they can swipe your card.  Luckily, it still worked, which was a good thing because I've been paying for that place to stay open. And since I've last been there, I've learned that they've painted and remodeled their floors (i bet that's where my donations have been going).


-Another thing that was amazing was that I managed to take those selfies at the gym without getting caught. It's really not as easy as it appears, folks.


-And this week our office has been flooded with every possible treat and I've avoided THEM ALL.  I know it's okay to have treats, but I'd much rather save my treats for something I love, like chips. Cool ranch, to be exact.


No, I will most certainly not eat you!

The good:
- I still continued to impress myself with my eating this week.  Here's just another sample of some of the things I packed in my lunch bag for work.


The bad:

-Nachos, a burger and fries and some drinks Saturday night.  This is really starting to feel like dejavu! But in the best possible way, of course.

So with all of that said, I think I did pretty good. I'm thinking that this next week is going to be the hardest week yet, but I'm going to give it my best shot.

And on a separate note, thanks to everyone who sent congratulations to me yesterday on becoming an Auntie again. I'm over the moon excited because I have a brand spanking new nephew, Bennett, who weighed 9 lbs, 13 ozs. I now have to patiently wait eight days until we fly to Toronto to see them, (which is going to be harder than dragging my butt to the gym), but I seriously can't wait to squish his chunky little cheeks.

Happy one week 'til Christmas, everyone!
