Thanks for all the birthday wishes yesterday! I loved it! You guys are all awesome.

It would be a lot easier if all those goodies didn't taste so good. I have a hard time just taking one bite or one small piece, especially if I am hungry. Once I get started I tend to eat way more than I meant to. As a result weight tends to creep on and my pants start getting tighter than I care to admit by New Years. SO discouraging.
So far this year I have managed to keep my weight pretty steady. I am happy right where I am at and am hoping to keep it that way. All the mileage I have been running lately has been helping I think. Last year at this time my jeans were starting to get tight. I try to never worry about my weight. I step on my scale a couple times a week, but i don't stress over the number as long as my jeans fit.
Being as yesterday was my birthday, I did eat cake. My husband and kids got me an ice cream cake and my Mom made me a German chocolate cake with raspberries and whip cream on top instead of frosting. Soo yummy. HBBC gives you one point for 7 servings of fruits and veggies a day. This has pointed out to me how bad I have been lately about getting my servings of fruits and veggies in. It seems so much easier in the summer when there is an abundance of fresh stuff around.
'So my December goals (i know I am a little ahead of the game here)
1. Eat more veggies
2. Eat more fruit
3. Keep running mileage up between 20 and 30 miles a week
4. Keep healthy snacks in my lunch bag so I am not so tempted by the holiday treats!
5. Keep lots of fruits and veggies on hand.
What are your tricks to avoid the holiday bulge?
Sometimes I eat one and throw the rest in the garbage or put it in the freezer.
Have you started on your December goals?
