I may be the worst blogger in history, but if I had put any time into this bad boy, I might not have had time to get into grad school, pass COMMUNITY college or have any semblance of a social life. So sorry, avid fans, I can't say this won't happen again. Since my wisdom teeth were pulled and healed, I was so sick of soft foods that I kind of went on a rampage. It may or may not be going on still. The holiday layer is definitely upon me... and although that may have a euphoric ring to it, it's not welcomed. I keep forgetting I'm not an athlete, and yes, I still eat like one. Well.. it's just my sweet tooth. I tried to cut back but then tonight I happened to have a girl's night including a glass of wine and double chocolate brownies. Yes, feminism at it's best. Yes, the brownies were fantastic but no, I'm not feeling all that great about them now. Especially because I didn't work out, not once, during Thanksgiving. I'm talking seven days off. I guess my body could use a break but I'm mental enough to think I see a difference in one week.

Getting out of shape is the worst. Don't do it. I promise you, it's ten times easier to stay in shape than to lose it and try to get it back. That's why, right now, I'm making a promise to try to stay semi on-track during the holidays. A few things I won't say no to: Starbuck's Peppermint Mocha. To die for. Ice cream... minimally!! Some, not all, Christmas cookies. I'm more of a cake person, thank God, because if I wasn't... I'd be a train wreck during this cookie-dominating season. Also, it would be nice if I was satisfied with one sweet thing throughout the day. The more you eat sweet and salty, the more you crave, so it's best to limit it. I will try to work out 5-6 times a week. This used to be a no brainer for me, but I've slowed down since soccer ended.

Speaking of soccer, a group of my favvvvorite people of all time may reunite next summer for the ultimate soccer reunion on the mighty Northern Virginia Majestics. Yes, it is making my day a little brighter.

Speaking of brighter, I also got into grad school today! For Exercise, Fitness, and Health Promotion, so I better saddle up and get back on track.

Things will derail you, but those things should be the exception, not the rule. I'm going to try a kickboxing class tomorrow... if I get up that is. I had big intentions of waking this morning to do a power pump class but amazingly my alarm didn't go off...oops.

Anyway, yes, I'm sorry I have been a bad blogger...and if for some reason you were trying to find inspiration for being healthy, I probably have failed you. Not to worry. I'm getting back on track. Here are some of my mishaps... and lovely successes.

Hot chocolate and munchkins with Alex. Chow mein, egg roll, fried rice and hot and sour soup with dad. Delicious baked salmon with asparagus.

Polenta casserole with a Gorgonzola cheese sauce. Paella and salad. Waffle shop breakfast... egg white omelet with pancakes and cottage cheese.

Three of the yummy pies from Turkey Day: pumpkin, Jewish apple, and a chocolate layer pie.

The final product of Thanksgiving; Unprepared turkey R.I.P; Sweet potato casserole

Anyway, I'm going to try to hop to it and be a good blogger again. Tis the season! Cheers.
