I have never been one to begin celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving, and never ever before Halloween. I was always a one holiday at a time girl. However…this year, I am reconsidering. If Christmas is the most important holiday…arguably over Easter, because while Christ was resurrected on Easter Sunday, He wouldn’t have walked the earth if He wasn’t born. But God could do anything you say…yes, of course He could, which is why I put arguably. I digress. 😉 Without Christ we would have nothing, be nothing, know nothing, have no hope, have no future. While the world is falling apart…near and far, I may have changed my opinion about starting the holidays too soon. Perhaps celebrating Christmas as early as you want, or even ALL YEAR, may be just what we need to do. We have a Savior. He should be rejoiced. And we should wait expectantly for Him to come back again. So…let the Christmas music play and have hope in Christ!
Frustrated a bit, but it is ALL my fault, so no one to blame but me.
No progress to speak of. If I followed my plan I would have progress each week. I truly wish I wasn’t an emotional eater…but, alas.
Between Halloween candy, baking for a slew of friends (with sampling) and the outcome of the election, I suppose I should be glad that I didn’t blow up this week. Election night was bad…I put a disgusting amount of food in my body. I am not proud of this.
I had wanted to reach my goal before now, because now I face the holidays. And starting next week…there is some event or party each week until the new year. This does not bode well for losing weight. I am hoping I can convince myself to be good all week to be able to splurge a little on these events. I will certainly keep you posted…
Be back next week!
I had some computer technology issues and wasn’t able to get these photos up before today…but here they are…yummy scarecrow cupcakes…the decorating is pretty self explanatory. 🙂
