Winter Wonderland

What a change a day can make! Yesterday you could see the grass and the roads. Today everywhere you look it is white! I'm not a big fan of snow. Sure, it's nice to look at, but I don't like to be in it at all. I don't like to walk in it or drive in it. Now, my kids on the other hand, are ready to go outside and play. They are dressing in their coveralls, gloves and hats as we speak.

No change in my weight for the week. I think for the time being, at least until the holidays are over, that I'm not going to worry about trying to lose weight. I'm going to shoot for maintaining instead. I'm not giving myself free reign to eat whatever I want, but I have realized that I just can't pass up the temptation of some of the things being brought into my home right now. I've not gone overboard on eating any of it, but I've HAD to have at least a piece of the candy or whatever every time I pass it by. Some of you are probably saying now to not even let those things come into the house if they're that big of a problem for you. Well, not an option. My hubby gets treats from his customers at this time of year and he will not let them go to waste. He feels that if the customer was nice enough to give him a gift then he should be nice enough to use it...even if that means gaining ten pounds over the holidays. So anyway, I'm going to keep following NS, but if a piece of fudge or a candy cane call my name, I'm going to enjoy it. It's not like I eat like this all year long either. These things are only around during the holiday season. Not an excuse, I know, well, maybe it is an excuse. Ha! I guess I'm just trying to validate my reasons right now to make myself feel better about them.

Beautiful picture, Lisa. Thanks for sharing it. I'm with you on the snow. It's pretty to look at but I don't want to be out in it at all. I never have liked being out in it, not even as a child. Give me a cup of hot chocolate and a good book and I'm good!

I think if you want to take the rest of the month to practice maintenance then go for it! Shoot, as long as we make it through the holidays without gaining I figure we're winners anyway. Just keep moderation in mind, like you have been and you'll be just fine!
