Getting Close

It's getting close to Christmas...so close that it almost feels like times starting to stand still. Things were moving so fast that I almost wanted to stop time. Now it can't move fast enough! every time I look at the clock I'm shocked that only 5 minutes have gone past! I'm finally done wrapping presents and shopping! I'm certain that I'm going to do things different next year. Anythings got to be better than what I did this year. I think I went on a spending spree for everyone and then threw in some homemade gifts to make myself think that I worked harder ;) This is what I'm dong next year:

It has to be so much easier than just having a free for all. I guess it hasn't really been exactly like that. The presents that I get are meaningful it's just that I can't stop! Yikes!

OK...so this next present I made is for my co-worker Lorien. She loves red so I thought I'd make her a necklace. Funds were getting low at the end of my shopping so I thought what better gift to make then with resources I already had! Here she is:

I made another one that's layered like this and it turned out really good. I almost with I could keep it because it turned out so well. Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of the other necklaces I made. I was in such a hurry to get things wrapped that I didn't photograph them. I'll have to when the people take it on of the box though! OK...I just got the OK to leave work early so I'm busting a move. I'm ready to start my vacation early :)

Christmas Projects

OK...so do you want to know what's taking all my time from being able to post these last few weeks? I'm about to show you (over the course of a few days) what I've been working on. I thought that the log would be the best place to show it before Christmas that way it won't give away any secrets. I don't think anyone in my family knows about the blog so all is well! The first project is one that I've been working on the least amount of time but it's one of my favorites. I'm giving this to my mother in law. I've had the letters for about two years now and could never settle on what I wanted to do with them. After some ideas from Pinterest I finally solved my problem. Take a look!

Weigh In

OK...it's time for the truth to come out. I've been busy and haven't had a chance to weigh in so I knew that I had to do it this week. I've also been busy and haven't been totally watching close the things I'm eating. The problem child is lunch, when I take one. If I stay at work and just do fruit and veggies I'm good but if I go out for any reason I've fallen to "temptation"! With me going shopping and trying to get Christmas shopping done, I've been out more. Once my shopping is completed I'll feel so much better! So here are my numbers

12/9/11 211.8 (gain of 1.6lbs since 11/18/11)

I think I want to be more frustrated with myself but really the number could be much worse. I've been incredibly busy with work and making all these Christmas presents that I could have blown it with eating. So what's my plan? To constantly have a plan at lunch. Dinner has been going well. I've had my meal plan and that's been working well. Last night I improvised when I found my potatoes were bad and we had a dinner that I planned for this weekend. For the next two weeks, I'm planning that if I have to go out shopping that I will eat my lunch before I go out so I'm not as hungry. Keeping plenty of fruits & veggies by my side is also key as well as having water readily available. Good news! A friend and I are taking a class at the rec center...zumba. Looking forward to getting back at it! OK...gotta run to work so I've gotta end this! Have a happy day!
