Baking and the Holidays!

Okay so I won’t be baking that early EVER again πŸ™‚ I’m not as strong as I can be when I know there isn’t a “contest” around the corner. However I did bake brownies yesterday without licking a thing just to prove to myself that i’m in control.

I’m at the weight mark that I DO NOT want to go over so I need to watch out. This happened last year. So after all the festivities I really to to work hard so I can look good for the Arnold. I’m keeping track of my weight which helps ME to make better choices. I’m not going to look like I did last year. I don’t know how that happened? This time I KNOW it’s because of fudge and cookies πŸ™‚ I haven’t been eating bad food just those little sweets add up. I ate alot of sweets right after the show too ugh…it’s disgusting.

Tonight I go to my mom’s for Christmas Eve. My sister, brother in law, and dad all go to my mom’s and it’s the best time! Then tomorrow I got to Mike’s parents. Eating there will be fine because 1. There isn’t TONS of food like my family makes 2. My family means comfort and pigging out but with his I’m okay. He has a great family though and I can’t wait to see them. I have 5 nieces and a nephew that I never see. That brings me to Saturday, Grandma’s. The best homecooking EVER and comforting foods. Foods that remind me of childhood and that makes me HAPPY! I’m going to TRY and behave. I guess i’ll just step on the scale before I go and that should do the trick HA!

    Merry Christmas! I hate baking in every way, shape, and form and my husband is not hypoglycemic so I don’t have to worry about bad stuff in the house. And we aren’t going anywhere for the holidays so I should be okay! If you do enjoy yourself and do go above where you want to be on the scale, I know you will come back with full force and will be smoking at the Arnold!
