29: Interlude: Holiday Stress

You wake up bright & early, make some coffee & turn on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

You take a look in the refrigerator and your cabinets one last time to make sure you have every last ingredient. Even the paprika!

You can't find the good luck needle you use every year to sew up the turkey. And someone must have drank the bottle of Cabernet the night before because it's bone dry sitting in the trash.

The dog starts barking at the band on the tv. And your breakfast quiche doesn't have nearly enough seasoning for your liking.

Lo, here just reminiscing of past Thanksgiving horror stories with you. 

Have any of these things ever happened to you on Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years Eve morning?

Where you could've sworn you crossed all your t's and dotted all your i's but still manage to forget something at the store?

Are you dreading seeing that one relative who always asks you when you're getting married or finally going to have a baby?

Have you been anxiety-filled around how you're going to stay on your diet with mac & cheese and pumpkin pie at every turn?

I just want you to know, sincerely, that I've been there before.

I can remember countless times where I just had to throw my whole Weight Watchers plan out the window after my second helping of mashed potatoes.

And the time when I was in between jobs and stressing to the max about how I was going to buy anyone Christmas gifts.

Girl, I've truly been there. And I've seen the other side.

The side where the holidays can be a lot of fun & you can enjoy your favorite foods stress-free.

The side where you already have a cheeky answer for Uncle I Ask All The Personal Questions.

The side where you can give yourself permission to miss a workout to spend more time with your family and not feel guilty.
