Friday Confessions 11.30.12

Time to confess....I've missed a few weeks. This is a crazy time of year where I work!!

I confess that all the Christmas decorations are up at work. It took 2 days and several volunteers, but everything is up and residents are happy. Now we can enjoy the month of December. I confess that I absolutely dread having to take it all down after New Years day.

I confess that the Holiday Hottie Challenge I am doing is helping me stay focused. I normally just let my diet and exercise go basically from Halloween to New Year's, but not this year. I've worked too hard to let some Christmas cookies and eggnog get the best of me. I also confess that I'm very proud of the push-up video in my Holiday Hottie Challenge post. Very, very proud.

I confess that in year's past I have spent days baking Christmas cookies to give away to friends, family & neighbors. This year I am scaling back and switching to quick breads. They are much less tempting for me. I will still bake some cookies, but not the several 100 dozen that I roll out.

I confess that a good friend and co-worker is at the hospital right now, as her 3 year old son is having major surgery. I have been praying for them and confess that I am anxious to hear that all is well with the little one. Not having children, I can only imagine how hard and emotional this would be.

If you want to go into your weekend pure and clean, consider heading over to see Aubrey at High Heeled Love to join the confessions. I promise you will feel better.

Pin It Now!


  1. Good for you for sticking to your weight-loss regiment this time of year! I've been so horrible lately... *sigh*

    Prayers for your friend's little one. A co-worker's daughter has been fighting for her life all week long in hospital, so I can relate to that one...

    Have a great weekend! :)

  2. I am totally inspired! I just got back on Sparkpeople trying to shed the 30 I have gained since my divorce. I'll be stopping in for more inspiration!

  3. Even minor surgery is nerve wracking. I will keep them in my prayers. <3 I love Christmas and decorating for it! Like you, the taking down of everything I dislike greatly!!! Have a fabulous weekend. I think I may go make som pumpkin bread. :)

  4. Good luck with your Holiday Hotties Challenge. I hope by now, your friend's son is doing much better.


I do love comments - thanks for leaving me one!
