Happy New Year’s everyone!
As part of my new year’s resolution I had to see the damage I had done over the holidays. I tried to hide from the scale long enough, so this morning I bravely stepped on the scale and saw that I was like the average American (or so the radio says) and gained 7 pounds. I knew there would be a gain and I’m okay with that. I hope that throughout this year I will learn how to not over indulge, but not feel deprived.
Let me start off by sharing my new year’s eve. I knew it was going to be an uneventful day. I had to be at work at 0630 on New Year’s Day which kind of cut into the late night celebrating. That was okay though. I wanted to do something a little special for Justine so Erin and I decided to take our kids to see the movie Tangled. The movie theatre was CRAZY. I have never been there when it has been so crazy, but since the movie had been out for a while out theatre wasn’t too packed.
I decided to be half way good and pack my own snacks.
I love The Popcorn Factory popcorn. I had ordered a bunch of different flavors for my birthday party and after trying them all I must say the Ginger Teryaki was my fav (I might have carried the whole container around with me and tried not to share). I was glad to have it to take to the movies, because I know my popcorn was better for you than movie theatre popcorn.
I made enough snacks to share 🙂
Since I had to work I hadn’t planned on doing anything in the evening, but being the great neighbors they are Kris and Erin invited me and Justine over. The adults had a few cocktails….
It was nice to feel like I celebrated a little even though I was in bed by 9:00! I did wake up at 11:00 and got to see the ball drop… well, I watched the one with Snooki inside the ball. I went back to sleep a little after midnight so I could get up at 4:00 to make monkey bread for me and my coworker.
I didn’t even make the whole recipe, but it made so much!
I woke up feeling like I had let out a big breath. I feel like the start of a new year, is like starting out fresh. Leave the troubles in 2010, and only bring the good into 2011.
