Confession- I have been having way too much fun the last day or so to post !
Yule eve was spent eating, playing and watching the new born sun arise. Yule itself was spent playing, shopping, going out to eat ( was not planned , but a free flowing day is a ton of fun sometimes) and exercising as a family. Discovered a few things- first being my husband cannot do Pilates without intense pain. I am finding certain routines in this program bring me to the point of feeling nauseous, but I LOVE doing this. Second was getting Wii Sports resort with the motion sensor is one of the BEST investments of Wii games. Very realistic moments, and if you want to work up a decent sweat, play the canoe race game. It is every bit as real as rowing a real canoe .
Combine this with walking while shopping, a spontaneous decision to re-arrange the living room and more playing, it has just been a lot of fun. Fun leads to relaxation, relaxation leads to less pain and less pain leads to decent quality sleep. At least it does for me. Food has not been the same as normal , but not terrible. I have decided between now and December 26 I simply do not care.Not caring means I do not mentally worry abpout food groups, allowances and so forth. It also means I do not worry that certain desserts or treats will go bad so I best eat the left overs. Another thing that it means is that if I want a cookie or a piece of cake I will eat it and not beat myself up about it, which can often lead to grabbing a second one because you have already blown it.
Just going to have fun !
