Yep, 2 lbs later, I'm sitting there hitting myself for eating to much. Why do I do this every year, I mean, it's like Thanksgiving rolls around and I wear my sweatpants and baggy shirts so that I can fit all that turkey in.

I ate people, I mean ATE, non stop, that plate just kept getting refilled and it kept disappearing to God knows where, though I think my hips may have been the final destination. But anyway, after all that eating I did something so dumb, I stepped on the scale. What possessed me to do that???

Then I heard this loud shriek only to realize it was coming from me.....yep 2 lbs may not seem like much, but considering I gained it one day, that's scary LOL

Should I even tell you all that I am watching what I eat today??? I don't know why, I know there's tons of leftovers in the refrigerator just calling my name, it irks me that food can win me over so easily. LOL

Anyway, I know that I haven't been by to visit any of you the whole week, and I hate not being able to, but I'm sure you understand how hard it is to do anything with a sick little one. They get so clingy and whiny and just want mommy's attention.....I'm not complaining, any other time I try to plant a kiss on them or hug them I get the "hurry up, I'm playing" or the wiping away the kiss, isn't that just heartbreaking?

I can't believe that Thanksgiving has come and gone, could time really be flying by at such a turbo rate? This whole year is starting to feel like a blur to me, one minute it's January and the next we're only 30 days from Christmas....goodness.

I'm finishing off Christmas Cards today and then I'm starting to send them out, I like getting them out early so that I don't get stuck worrying over the holiday rush. Now I just need to start getting my christmas lists finished up and maybe start shopping???
I have the hardest time buying christmas gifts this early though, I feel like by the time christmas rolls around there's OTHER stuff I want to get, well that and the fact that I'm a lousy surprise keeper. Seriously....if I have a gift for someone I need to give it to them like YESTERDAY, I can't keep it hidden.

So today we're just hanging out, kids are playing and watching tv, hubby and I are sitting at the computers playing or surfing or's just one of those relaxing days, no rush and no need to be everywhere at once. It has done a world of good to my soul and health, I'm feeling a lot more relaxed and rested....did wake up with a sore throat, but I'm not even complaining about that, it's minor compared to my FULL NIGHT'S sleep. Boy how I needed that.

Btw, I'm going to be changing my template to something christmasy soon, and then after the holidays will be back to this pretty pink one. Now I'm not sure when I'm going to do it, I haven't had much time for anything, so probably next week :)

Right now, I'm going to go grab some more coffee and head to your blogs for a quick "drive-by-comment", don't worry it won't hurt LOL

Have yourselves a wonderful weekend,

We're having leftovers today, there's no way I'm cooking with SO much food leftover :)

You, me and everybody does the same thing at Thanksgiving. And you know what, I'll do it again at Christmas! :vD Something about food. I don't smoke and don't drink so I gotta have something in my hand to bring to my mouth! :v)

Glad you got some rest.

Gail said...

Oh I ate way too much food! And unfortunately we are still like that because we are at a family gathering of almost 30, until Sunday so the fun continues!
Doing nothing is good!

Looney Mom said...

Well I gained like 40 lbs over this last year that 2 or 5 pounds at this point is not going to matter. I guess I'll have to start the New Year's resolution early this year and shed the lbs. Still have a ton of leftover too...

Just wanted to say that we can always rationalize the gluttony guilt a little by reminding ourselves of all the nutrients (not empty calories!) we are fueling ourselves with to get thru the winter. . . yams & sweet potatoes, lean turkey full of protein, cranberries, pumpkins and squashes rich in vitamin A, etc. . . Now if we could forget about the butter and such!

It is just so good! It is hard to push ourselves away from the table. lol Then there is the company and it is just such a joyous time being together and all. I will have to start walking my 1 or 2 miles a day again, just so I can get through without gaining the average 7 lbs they say an American gains through the holidays! yikes! :)

Morning Glory said...

But it all just tastes so good!! We HAVE to eat it. Don't we??

At least you had a nice day while you ate and ate and ate. So did we.

Kelli said...

You only gained 2 lbs?! Here, have a couple of mine!! LOL I'm glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. My fridge is full too. I was explaining to Phillip the art of stacking casserole dishes tonight. :0)

Mrs Blythe said...

Kili @ Live Each Moment said...

I love the pink one though. But excited to see your Christmas one. You seriously gained 2 pounds? I didn't even weigh. Especially now that I'm pregnant again.

Ditto on the eating like a pig. I stuffed myself and then did it again the next day so don't feel bad. I didn't step on the scale yet, but I will take your advice and not do it at all. Maybe next week when I start my one millionth diet.

Glad to hear you had a nice day though. We did too. Today we are kicking back watching football. My hubby is a Steelers fan so he wantst to see his game.

Jen said...

I'm glad you and your family had a blessed Thanksgiving...I'm ready to get back to normal for awhile.

GIRL! First of all, you do NOT need to worry. You are a beautiful woman and a few pounds in either direction is NOT going to hurt you NOR change your life! Do not let your holiday be dampened by stressing about your weight! Second - girl - do NOT get on the scale - are you crazy!?! You need to give yourself at least 48 hours after such a meal before you step on the scale!!!
Hope you enjoyed your lazy day - gotta love those!

Proverbs31 said...

Yeah, I did the same thing, too. WAYYYY too much food. But I didn't step on the scale. :)

I can't believe you are working on your Christmas cards already! I have good intentions every year but never manage to actually get them sent out. Maybe if I started on them now, I actually might! ;)
