Hello out there, happy Monday, and Merry Christmas Eve, if you celebrate that holiday! I’m up nice and early on this holiday because I’m gearing up to go to an early morning Xmas Eve workout at my gym before a lovely day at our house, eating all the things and playing all the games. I’m also thinking up a workout for Christmas Day to help keep me on track during the holidays while cookies continue to somehow show up in my hand every 10 minutes.

Holidays use to really stress me out. I would end up eating more food than usual, drink more than I usually do, then I would wake up the next morning to a swollen body and be devastated. It would make me feel like all the effort I put in recently was for nothing. Like I had taken 20 steps back in that short holiday week. But now I know that’s not the case. Sure, I’ll be a little swollen from sugar and extra water weight, but I also know this time will pass. Christmas Day is tomorrow and after that day, all the sugar will be gone from the house and I’ll be back to a normal eating schedule. And since I kept up with my workouts over the holidays, getting back to my normal state is pretty damn easy. I even share that in experience in my post – Back on Track in One Week Flat.

I say all this as a reminder that this short amount of time doesn’t dictate your entire year. Or month. Or even week. It’s a time where there is temptation around every corner and we give in because of all kinds of different reasons. And that’s ok. Because since you’ve been working so hard throughout the year, day-to-day, these few days will only be a short window in time. The rest of the year will dictate your future, not some Christmas cookies.

Remember to enjoy these moments. These cinnamon rolls or pies or frosted cookies or yule log or whatever it is your family makes, well it only happens once a year and you should enjoy it. Because by Thursday, it will all be gone and life will be back to a normal routine. Now go enjoy the last few days of your holiday. Whether that’s by getting outside or getting a workout in or by simply stuffing your face with pecan rolls – do what makes your happy over the holidays because they aren’t here for long! I’m going to kick mine off with what I love to do most and that’s work out! See you guys here tomorrow for one last holiday recipe…Eggnog Cheesecake Bars!!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Hey Juli ~ I am a huge fan. No matter what your subject is – food, health, dogs – you name it. I can relate and enjoy your thoughts and information! I need my body back in a week after too much alcohol – well not really too much but more than normal which is none – but combined with sugar – ugh. Where is that post? I couldn’t find it. Might be the sugar-coma I am still in ….. Thank you!

  2. You’re too funny. I can’t even do one push-up. I’ve never been able to do one my whole life. My upper body has no strength and I have super long and thin arms. I wish that I could do push-ups but I’ve even tried doing planks and plank push-ups to progress to regular push-ups and nada. Any advice for someone who’s over 50 and struggling?
