Sorry for the lack of posts this week...I have Christmasitis and all I feel like doing are Christmas things like baking cookies, watching movies, and wrapping everything that isn't nailed down. And that's pretty much what I have been doing...
Saturday we baked all day with my sister and nephews, and made a few ornaments as well:
My sister is a master snowman decorator.
We also had my son's preschool Christmas program one night this week, and it was possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen.
I am still loving Weight Watchers, although Monday was an epic failure on my part...Monday was our Christmas carry-in at work, and I had little to no self control.
I tracked everything though, and still came out ok technically, although I definitely felt the effects of way too much sugar and carbs. Also some of the stuff it was hard to track exactly...not sure the exact size of the PB fudge, for example, and what's listed above as the home made italian bread is actually amazing homemade bread that someone brought in with butter and jam. So...who knows. But I got right back to my normal the next day, although I have felt sluggish and lazy all week.
I do feel slimmer overall though...for sure. Today I'm wearing size 18 American Eagle jeans (like regular ones, not the looser boyfriend ones) and I feel pretty good. Today is also ugly Christmas sweater day:
So...I'm still here and plugging along, just feeling quiet and enjoying the season.
Six days until Christmas! Eeeek.
