A Healthiness Christmas

I’m so excited to come back and tell you about my Christmas.

Let me start by saying that my title does in no way describe the food I’ve consumed in the last 48-72 hours. I have enjoyed lots of treats and foods over Christmas and the day after. I have also been reminded two nights in a row why I don’t eat that much anymore. Both quantity and type of food left me not feeling my best. So, I’m done with the celebratory foods and on to the fun stuff….

First off, you remember my husband was doing my stocking this year, right? He did good. There was a little candy and then granola bars, a fruit & nut mix, 100-calorie packs of almonds and a giftcard to Subway. Go Luv!!! I was very pleased with his stocking stuffing abilities, and even more so that he honored my wishes for a healthier stocking.
Those are not the only wishes he granted this year….

This is the face of a woman who was totally thrilled with her Christmas gift from her husband this year, because it was……

A GARMIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can tell that I was and still am totally excited by this gift. Not only because it’s like a very cool tool for running, but because it also showed me that my husband has confidence in my running abilities and desire to get better.


I know you understand that having someone that dear to you believe in your weight loss journey is huge. I am so pleased that he would invest that kind of money in my weight loss journey. It’s one thing to say, “You can do it!” and another thing entirely to say “I know you can and I’m going to help you by giving you this.”
Speaking of dear people who believe in the journey…

I also got an email last week informing me that my friend Stephanie has ordered this for me for Christmas:

Folks, I announced to my family after receiving her gift and the Garmin…


LOL ~ Of course, this sounds so silly to me, being I’m still halfway away from my goal weight and “running” at barely 4.8 mph for 30 minutes, but nothing makes a person feel more confident than those types of gifts.

It was a wonderful day and I’m very excited to see what this next year holds for me.
