Wednesday was our day care day for grandbabies. Can you guess what holiday baking activity we did? Yep, making and baking Christmas cookies after the older three (7, 6, 5) were out of school! It was fantastic with definite memories made. But, guess what?? I did not have a single baked cookie (yes, a small taste of dough) and NO licks of frosting or any frosting whatsoever!!! This is a bell ringer for me because I am a supper cookie and frosting girl. Love them. Here is the evidence that I had no licks:
Did you notice there is left over frosting?? Well, in the old Michele days, that would have been gone. Not, now. That extra frosting is stored in the fridge for the next time it is our day care day and the next cookie bake. By the way: that picture also includes the last cookie left after my hubby (a cookie monster) ate the others on the plate. Better him than me!!
Twelve Days of Christmas Swap: Kenz and Janna are sponsoring a little Twelve Days of Christmas exchange. I signed up as a different way to spread Christmas cheer. Here is a picture (shh) of the package I prepared for my partner Erin. I will share later about the items including some regifting!
I revised my goals. Here is my update:
1.Lose an additional 8 pounds by December 31, 2010.
I weighed in this week and have no loss to report.
2. Biking and walking: I targeted 15 miles for this week: I did 11, so close.
Next week: I hope for the whole 15. I am super excited to report that
I made my 15 mile target on the exercise bike (my nemesis)!
3.Take care of myself each day by eating less,
moving more, and eating plenty of fruits and veggies.
I continue to take good care of myself. I ate more salad this week and ate at least two fruit servings everyday. So, definitely a plus for this goal.
4.Have more 1200 calories days in a week than 1500-calorie days.
Better than last week. Four out of seven were 1200 calories. So, another winner!
5.Drink more water.
Definitely a habit. I challenged myself last week to a limit of 1-2 diet sodas a day.
I did perfect on this challenge 5/7 days. Not perfect. Next week: 7/7.
How about you? How are you doing on your goals for the Hot 100 Challenge?
Have a great week end everyone and stay strong in your journey!
