Socks, Rocks, and Goodies Galore!

As promised, here is a pic of the pair of socks that will be given away on Friday, December 12th. Remember to comment on my blog this week to be entered into the drawing. I know it's just socks, but come on, everyone needs socks and who doesn't love Christmas socks? I'll have you know these were picked out by Girl who liked these ones better than the black, red, and white stockings that were designed to look like a red brick chimney with snow topping it.

Now, about those rocks...

Sometimes I just feel like pelting people with rocks. A conversation took place this weekend that left me worried and sad. I want to fix the problem, but I can't. It's one of life's little lessons that must be learned, but I want to fix it anyway. I would even stoop so low as to put a band aid on it and pretend like it didn't happen. Pathetic, I know.

Or, maybe it is because I consumed too much junk food this weekend. Egad! Whenever Soldier Mommy and the boys are here, they always bring junk food. Lots and lots of junk and I happily eat it because my mind is on auto pilot and don't even think before I take.

Okay, not true. I do think. I think things like, "Oh! Is that chocolate cake? Did you buy it for me?" and "I bet that would taste great with a cup of tea?". I've even been known to say things like, "I know I shouldn't..."

Take Saturday for instance; it was a work day for me and instead of grabbing my usual protein drink, I grabbed a cinnamon roll. Beloved looked at me and said between bites, "Tastes better than a protein shake huh?"

Yes, yes it did.

But now I have to detox all the sugar out of my body. I was hoping to lose some more weight (still hanging at a loss of 25lbs) before Christmas. This may have been a bad idea. It is, after all, Christmas, and while I can pass on the mashed potatoes and gravy, rolls with butter, and stuffing, sweets are truly hard to pass up.

Maybe I should go find a big rock and bash myself in the head. I understand when you're in a coma they feed you a liquid diet. That should help take the pounds off!

no bashing yourself with a rock, instead eat healthy 85% of the time, leaving that last 15% for goodies. that way you get to enjoy and participate but on your terms.

and losing 25 lbs is amazing.

Forget the rock and eat the sweets! Christmas only comes once a year so enjoy. You've got 11 months after the holidays to lose weight so Eat, Drink and Be Merry!

I would comment but I'm afraid I'd win and I'm too big and hairy for Christmas socks.

I know how you feel, I get sick from too much sugar as well.

I love your page makeover for the holidays!!!

Take care!

The red,white, and black socks are at least the correct colors of the greatest NBA team in the league... :)

Cute socks! I like how you displayed them! :)

Love chocolate but I so want to lose a few pounds too, maybe I need one of those rocks. :(

Hey wait, maybe we could each eat one rock and it would take up space in our stomach making us feel full. :)

Ooooh, I could have written this post. I'm the original Cookie Monster, and they're everywhere this time of the year.

Salivating at the description of the chocolate cake, but I'll have milk with mine.
