Holiday Insights

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

So I realized that I can't get it all done. Shocking, right? I can't exercise at my regular level, while preparing for Christmas guests & working. I ate some things I shouldn't have the last two days. Hey, I haven't totally fallen off my program. Let's just say I eased back a bit. The house won't be perfect, but we will all have a wonderful time. I may not get my regular aerobics in, but I can get family out for a walk together. Accepting that I can't get every thing done perfectly, actually helps me stay with my program rather than give up entirely. Okay, I feel better with this insight!
Happy Holidays Sparkers!

    Hi. Thanks for the goodie and greetings. I liked your post. You summed up the pressures of the Christmas season really well. Went throught that a bit myself. Trying to get the house "done" before celebrations and going away on holiday. On holiday now and its great. Keeping fit by mountain biking, running and long walks.

    Just do what you can and let the rest slide. That's your gift to yourself.

    You hit it right on the head: you can't do it all. The holidays will happen whether or not the house is perfect and the family won't care if the house is spotless anyway. Do the things that make you happy and don't exhaust yourself with unnecessary work and stress. As I say this, I am sewing on a quilt and it's almost 1:00am so who am I to talk?! I will be down at the fabric store waiting in line to buy batting when they open tomorrow morning, then stopping off at 7-11 to buy scratch-offs for the stockings, then I'm done running around. I am going to assign the girls house cleaning and cooking tasks so that I don't have to do it all. Am I getting wiser in my old age or what?! Have a wonderful weekend emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
