There are a few things that I enjoy, so I'm not a complete scrooge! I took this semi-drunk picture of the tree in our lobby at work while walking. I like to call it modern art.
I've also been enjoying large amounts of this tea from Trader Joe's. I don't really like candy canes, but I love this minty-vanilla tea and since I haven't been able to find any of the Celestial Seasonings holiday teas, this is my better, cheaper solution. It also helps that this is decaf since I'm hyper enough already.
Since cranberry sauce is my favorite part of Thanksgiving, I've been eating freakish amounts of it in my oatmeal and otherwise, starting this weekend. I also love the tartness of cranberries and cooked them right up in my oatmeal too.
Of course I added unsweetened cocoa powder because nothing says breakfast like chocolate.
While I am all about balance, it does seem like I have been celebrating over the last 5 days with about 10 celebratory dinners, a cookie here and a leftover bite there. My plans to exercise and get in my veggies are still in play, but I do need to work a little harder at following my own advice and not carrying on the holidays for weeks. I'm back to one treat a day and lots of water!
Are you having a hard time distinguishing normal days from holidays?
