Today, I am on a mission—a mission to not eat my bodyweight in chocolate, Cheerios, and cheese. That’s kind of how my day went yesterday.
You see, my friends, I have this issue with snacking. So today I’ve been working on my self control. One big problem I have is eating lunch over the course of like 4 hours—it never really stops. So, today I made a legit lunch that consisted of a messy, open-faced turkey, bacon, spinach, pepperjack cheese, and avocado sandwich with an apple on the side. Mmmm.
(I made my first turkey on Monday because my dad had one in the freezer he wanted to get rid of. It was good (and covered in a pound of bacon) but not really worth talking much about it.)
Before lunch I got in a 13-mile run, which made me very happy to complete considering how last week’s long run went. The only problem with today’s run is I forgot I was planning to do 13. So, I sprinted the end of my 12th mile, realizing once I had finished that I needed to do 1 more mile. Needless to say, that last mile was a bit slower. Overall, had an average of a 9:08 pace. I’ll happily take it.
Yesterday, I didn’t stretch—not even for 10 seconds. I felt like I was going to die and go to fitness hell because I always fear what will happen if I don’t stretch. Turns out I survived. My legs were just a little extra tight. I made up for it today by getting in a good post-run stretching.
And now to the whole point of this post…
These Are a Few of My Favorite Things
There’s just too much that I love about Christmas to fit it into one post . Therefore, I am starting a week early.
Christmas Lights Ditto. Simple yet effective.
Food Presentation Guacamole Grinch. This looks disgusting and wonderful all at the same time.
Holiday Scent Scented Pine Cones. Love scented pine cones and now I know how to make them myself! They really fill up the room with a nice holiday scent.
Animated Fun Elf Yourself. These things crack me up. You upload pictures and plug people’s faces into the elf heads to make a surprisingly funny video. I made a Hip Hop video of my family + Matt, and my sister has become the leader for some awesome reason. If you want to check it out, click here. There’s also 80’s, Charleston, Disco, and a few others.
Surprise Snowman in the Bathtub. I think this would be hilarious if you discovered this while at someone’s house. So strange.
Décor Ornaments Hung from the Window. A friend did this last year, and I thought it was so clever. If you do it right, it can look pretty classy and awesome. Plus, it’s a very affordable way to dress up any room!
VERY SERIOUS QUESTION: What’s your favorite kind of cheese?
It always changes for me. As of this exact moment, I’d say… #1 is Pepperjack, #2 is Feta #3 is Goat, maybe? #4 Gouda, probably #5 …okay, I cannot rank my favorite cheeses. It is so difficult because I love them all.
What are some of your favorite Christmas things?
