5 Things Before Christmas

I still need to:

  1. buy all the gifts
  2. wrap all the gifts
  3. bake all the cookies
  4. visit all the people
  5. put up all the holiday decor

… or at least that’s what it feels like around here. But that’s not true. I’ve actually done a lot to prepare for Christmas already but sometimes it feels like it’s not enough. I felt like I was so early and on schedule. and then I realized that today is T minus 6 … only 6 days until Christmas

Time to double up my efforts… do some quick-time marching.

5 ways I’m keeping my sanity before Christmas:

  1. doing the soup detox… well, I cheated a little yesterday… but regardless, I’ve done well and last night, I made more soup.

    Tomato, split peas, mushroom, quinoa, carrot soup... delicious

  2. humming holiday tunes while I write or browse the internet – my favorite yesterday was … and the government shall be upon his shoulder….IMG_9229
  3. reading myself to sleep at night. Currently on my nightstand is Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen.Anna Quindlen Still Life with Bread Crumbs http://ruwnright.net
  4. getting lots and lots of exercise. I’m trying to get up or stretch every 20 minutes or so and I’m walking everywhere I can. And going to the gym early or late, whenever I can fit it in.Gym equipment http://runwright.net IMG_9209 IMG_9210
  5. planning my future past Christmas… i.e. goals for 2015 and beyond.

    I really do still need to some shopping! I’m hoping to get it all done tomorrow AND hoping it won’t be insane at the stores, but that is wishful thinking I know! 😉 Good for you for doing the detox and exercising! I really need to exercise!! Waaay too much eating of junk lately!

  2. With all the craziness around the holidays I am still making sure I get all my workouts in. I am loving all the Christmas music on the radio lately. I love the Mariah Carey song.
