Naughty me - I haven't been blogging! I broke my streak - pooh!!
Phew glad Thanksgiving is over with. But now we dive into a month of overt consumerism and commercialism. I honestly have grown to dread the holidays. Some may call us scrooges (my husband and I are in agreement with this philosophy) but we see modern Christmas as simply a retail holiday. If you look at any of the religious holidays that occur around the end of December, absolutely none of them have anything to do with gift exchanges, spending overt amounts of money, or going into debt. In fact the Bible actually frowns upon debt. So why the heck do Christians regularly go into debt during a Christian holiday?? It makes absolutely no sense to me. This is the season that makes me most glad we don't have TV, live rurally and away from shopping areas, and that we don't shop much. Just thinking about the holidays makes me mad!
We still have yet to get to the gym or do any sort of regular exercise. I am trying not to beat myself up over this but we do need to do something about it. I woke up this morning achy and I don't know if it's because I am coming down with a bug (both hubby and I are stuffy and I was feeling off yesterday) or if I'm not exercising enough so activities like four hours of cooking render me tired and sore. I proposed to hubby that we go hiking tomorrow and maybe to the gym too... we'll see.
We are still eating and drinking well, though I did go overboard with breaking my alcohol fast for Thanksgiving. Once again I was drinking like I used to be able to, but I can't drink like that without consequences. So this morning I have a bit of a headache and I'm thirsty as all get out, plus I am feeling terribly lazy!
Well I need to go read my energy management book now. Maybe I'll get motivated to actually get out and do something??
