I've Been a Good Girl

I hope everyone had a merry Christmas.  Mine was filled with family, friends, food, and dogs.

I must have been a good girl this year, because Santa was very generous to me.

Further proving that this blog is named appropriately, check out my Christmas loot.

Lots of kitchen wares and lots of running gear. 

Highlights: Garmin 305!!!!, New Balanace Minimus 10 road shoe, KitchenAid stand mixer, CrockPot, measuring spoons (so desperately needed!), and a really big McNeese Tervis with lid.

Like I said, I must have been a very good girl.

Yesterday, I felt pretty crappy all day.  I was nauseous and had a headache.  Honestly, I think it was all the sugar I have been eating coupled with sinus head congestion.  So, I'm quitting sugar through January.  Of course I can have natural sugars (fruit), and I won't be quitting booze since New Years and Mardi Gras season are aroud the corner, but no more cookies, candy, cake, and ice cream. 

Added bonus, hopefully kicking sugar out of my diet will help me shed a few holiday pounds.  I'm starting to get a Santa-like belly. :(   I'll be updating you on a daily-ish basis letting you know how "project sugar free january" is going. 

I'm off all week, so I will have time to fit in some extra workouts. :)  Also on my agenda for the week: cooking with my new toys, shopping trip to Houston with my mom, preparing for a baby shower I'm hosting in mid-January, hunting with my dad, and lots of reading!

How are you dealing with your holiday food hangover?
I'm quitting sugar and working out hard!
