After Christmas Detox

Does anyone else feel like they need a week after Christmas to detox all of the food, sweets, and alcohol out of their system from the Christmas holiday? I sure do! I had one of the best Christmas weekends and loved spending time with family and induling in all of the great food and sweets and treats. We brought home so much candy, I think it will last all year. So... now the trick is to get back on track from straying from my diet and exercise for the past 4 days. I plan to drink loads of water this week, workout at least 4-5 times, and load up on fruits and veggies this week. I am making a pack with myself that there will be no alcohol this week until New Year's Eve where I am allowing myself 2 drinks, and I still want to indulge in the leftover sweets this week but I need to be careful. I had originally planned a weigh in day on Wednesday and we will see how I am feeling by then about stepping on the scale. Since I am currently at 171.0, I am shooting for the scale to read an even 170 by December 31st.

Vegas Invite!

I just emailed my girlfriends the invite for the Vegas trip from March 24-27th, 2011! I am so excited to celebrate my 25th birthday in Vegas and I hope my closest girlfriends will be able to join me. We are planning on carpooling and driving to Vegas (way cheaper than flying) and then staying 3 nights at a hotel on the strip. I can't wait for some relaxing and fun girl time and we can shop, have a few cocktails, and lounge by the pool! I asked the girls to RSVP by January 10th and then we can start planning our girl's weekend in Vegas!

Gingerbread House Party Recap

Yesterday afternoon I had a great time with my co-workers decorating adorable gingerbread houses for the holidays. We spent about 2 hours icing our little houses and covering them with all kinds of holiday candy. It was amazing to see how creative we could get and everyone had a blast with the party. This party was a great way to kick off the holiday season and celebrate with my second family, which is my team at work. We spend so much time dealing with stressful issues and it was nice break to get away for the afternoon and relax and enjoy each others company. Decorating these gingerbread houses is definetly not just for kids because we all had a great time!
