Well good morning, darling face! It is the day after Christmas and I am feeeeeeeling all the baking I did. Nothing like a holiday to steer you in the wrong direction when it comes to your diet choices. My choices yesterday included chocolate, peanut butter cookies, and egg-free edible cookie dough. And the amount of exercise I got in was me trying to run drunk sprints in the snow with my dog. Not my best moments. So this morning I’m feeling less than my best self.

My husband seemed a little bummed this year after our Christmas Day. We hung out with my parents on Christmas Eve and my mother-in-law and brother-in-law were out of town since we are leaving for a family vacation in a few days, so it was only me, my husband and my sister-in-law at the house on Christmas Day. I tried to make it feel Christmasy with a family brunch and Christmas movies, but since we didn’t do presents this year because we are spending it on a family trip instead, I think it didn’t feel the same to him.

Christmas is so different when there aren’t kids involved. Buying for kids is so fun and easy. They have no money so they rely on you to use yours. And kids love a million things. If it’s shiny and colorful and makes excessively loud noises, they love it. But adults are different. Most adults purchase what they need so it’s hard to figure out a creative gift when they can do that for themselves at any point. I’m not a big gift giver. I think it’s so much pressure to get the perfect gift. I would just much rather spend it on experiences like going to a nice restaurant or saving for a vacation. But that takes away from the Christmas Day experience that many of us have been programmed to expect.

Maybe I should just give in and purchase gifts for everyone and let go of the experiences idea. I want my husband to be happy during the holidays and I want it to feel like Christmas in our own home because he loves that. That’s the thing about marriage – it’s not just about you and your feelings anymore. You gotta put your significant other first to make sure they are happy. I guess my New Year’s resolution will include being better at the holidays in 2018. I think I may have more resolutions than I thought I would. Damnit.

But since I have 364 days to work on it, I’m going to spend today in the gym getting back on track and creating new recipes for you guys! Christmas can wait.

PS thanks for being my therapist this morning. It’s greatly appreciated.

    So an idea for you to include “gifting items” for Christmas – this is something that is a tradition for my in-laws. On Christmas Eve (or the the 23rd) the group each picks randomly one other person in the group. Like secret Santa. And then you all go to the mall together and have a spending limit, we did $20, and everyone goes around and finds some cute (and generally on sale) items. The spending limit could be whatever you want/not even have it.

    This year Christmas was small at my house with just me, my husband, his twin sister, and their dad so we actually split into teams boys and girls. Then me and his sister went around for the ~2 hours and just had fun shopping. Their family isn’t huge into gifts, whereas mine is, and I find this is a fun middle ground with their family. Maybe something you could try next year? 🙂 …Ps they call it “the sprint” cause your running around last minute.

      love that idea, thanks debra!

    You’re not alone in this feeling. I’ve been rather melancholy about Christmas these past few years, and I can’t really put my finger on why. I have an 8-year-old son, so that should help, theoretically… but I just can’t quite feel the magic of the holidays like I did when I was younger. I think it’s like Christmas isn’t special anymore because we start seeing it in the stores in September, so the special “time of year” becomes a 4-month-long sensory assault. When Christmas actually gets here, it feels like such a letdown! When i was a kid, Christmas felt so magical because it really didn’t start until after Thanksgiving. My parents weren’t on the Internet constantly searching for presents or being bombarded by the Pinterest ideal of Christmas. So, instead, we baked cookies and listened to the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas record (God, I’m old ????) I think the melancholy is just sadness over what Christmas used to be…and what it is now. Maybe your husband feels this way, too.

    1. juli says:

      i think that’s totally what he’s feeling. it’s hard when christmas changes but you still envision it to be a certain way every year. hopefully we can create something that he enjoys in the future!

    Happy holidays! Thanks for always bringing such great content to the blog, insta, and podcast (insert gushing fangirl here). I made your banana gingerbread load three times for various events and it was a hit. It also freezes well in case anyone was wondering. One of my Christmas gifts were your PaleOMG leggings. While I love the design and color, I don’t think they will work for Crossfit. I test squatted and they seem really sheer. The blue gives way to white which looks like skin. Eek! Did you create them more for fashion than fitness?

    1. juli says:

      i definitely created them for both fitness and fashion!! i’ve test the leggings multiple times and when i’m wearing a nude thong, nothing shows through! i was worried some women might be worried about the white showing through and thinking it was see through. if you feel uncomfortable in them in any way, please reach out to Four Athletics right away and they will do whatever is best for you to make it right!

  4. Waffle Lover says:

    Thanks for another great recipe. What could I substitute the Almond Milk Greek yoghurt for down here?

    1. juli says:

      you can use any dairy free yogurt you prefer!

  5. Carri says:

    Since my family is all adults, we decided to do a family trip to share experiences together rather than exchange gifts. To still try and ‘feel’ like Christmas, our parents did stockings and my brother, sister in law and I created a photo book of our trip to share with our parents. This way we each had something to open and the book prompted a lot of fun memories to reminisce and laugh about.

  6. Alex says:

    I really need to bust out my waffle maker more often!! These look great. I know my husband and i would love these!
    For Christmas my husband and i just fill up stockings for each other., that way it’s fun little things, not one big gift. We do favorite snacks, small gadgets, and gift cards. Everyone is happy!

  7. Mary says:

    I think most people have things they can’t bring themselves to buy even though they want and can afford them. Like I’ve been wanting a $50 defuser attachment for my hairdryer but it’s just too ludicrously expensive. But I’d be thrilled if my hubby bought it for me, even though we have joint finances! So that’s the sort of gift I like to give. Or I’ll try to track down a unique or new or meaningful version of something they would buy, like Darn Tough socks for my husband who loves wool socks, or vintage bookends for my dad who has piles of books everywhere, or a mug shaped like my FIL’s favorite actor’s head. I actually really enjoy buying and giving gifts, but I’m also perfectly honest with myself that I’m not going to give anyone anything life changing.

  8. Cari says:

    Happy Holidays! Have you tried to make these waffles and freeze them?

    1. juli says:

      yes, the waffle themselves freeze great!!

  9. Jan says:

    So is there ALMOND MILK GREEK YOUGERT!!???

    1. juli says:

      yes!! kite hill!!

    Hi Juli!

    My kids will LOVE the idea of a waffle sandwich! I was wondering though if you had experimented with other flours when creating this recipe? For some HORRIBLE reason, my body reacts to Tapioca and Arrowroot flour the same as regular wheat flour. I’m wondering if you could sub coconut flour and increase the almond flour?
    Totally maddening…tapioca/arrowroot are the saviors to GF cooking. 🙁
