Good morning! Happy Hump Day!
Here’s a little something to make you smile:
I think if I had to pick my favorite homemade meal, it would be pizza. I love it so much. The melt-y cheese, doughy crust, endless toppings”¦ it just never gets old. I could probably eat homemade pizza every day of the week. Mmm!
Ok, maybe I’m weird, but I got really excited about last night’s dinner. We had homemade pizza topped with green bell pepper, onion, and pepperoni and salads on the side. It was so delish.
The scene on our dining room table:
After dinner, Mal and I both craved something sweet, so I whipped up a batch of Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies. We only had 1/4 stick of butter, so I just made a small batch of cookies.
The words “Toll House” are now a pug buzzword in our house. Murphy lost his sh*t over those words last night. I’m not sure what it sounds like, but it makes him totally bug out. Maybe he loves cookies as much as I do?
For breakfast this morning, I made scrambled eggs with chopped broccoli, tomato, and onions and piece of whole wheat toast with sunflower butter spread on top.
Feel Great Weight
I don’t know about you, but I always struggle with sticking to my regular workout routine this time of year. The warm summer sun is long gone, but my New Year’s motivation hasn’t kicked in yet. It’s almost as if I’m in no-man’s-land in November and December.
With the craziness of the holiday season, the last thing I have time for (or want to do) is exercise, but I know if I don’t fit in some quality sweat sessions, I’ll ring in the new year a few pounds heavier””and it’s tough to feel festive when my pants are too tight! Here are some typical excuses for skipping your workout and how to overcome them: No More Excuses: 4 Ways to Stick to Fall Workouts.
Be Thankful Challenge
I’m thankful for turning the clocks back. It’s been so much easier getting out of bed in the morning!

How do you stay motivated to exercise during the holiday season? Do you find it more difficult than other times of the year?
