Present Participle List for December

Making lentil loaf this weekend to test the recipe for a few holiday parties. I also want to make some Angelic Bakehouse Flatzza  pizza. If you've got a great lentil loaf recipe, send it my way!
Planning to eat more vegetables and exercise regularly so I stay healthy this holiday season.
Binge-watching nothing currently. I wish I had another season of Homeland to binge-watch. Any suggestions on some shows I could get addicted to this winter?
Counting my blessings. I am thankful for Craig, my kitties, my parents and friends.
Crossing things off my to do list like blog posts, things to buy for recipes, etc. 
Working overtime every day at work this week. That means I can leave early tomorrow and start my weekend off at 2:30! I've been pretty bummed to barely see sunlight every day this week.

Loving not feeling overwhelmed this holiday season because we choose not to buy gifts for tons of people. 
Appreciating getting my genetics test results back from 23andMe this week and discovering more about my European roots. I had no clue I would end up being 19.6% British/Irish and 1.4% Iberian. I also love discovering new cousins through the site!
Getting excited for the new year. I prefer New Years Day over Christmas. I think it's the wellness geek in me--I enjoy the buzz of people becoming more active and eating healthier. Now that I no longer work at a gym or workout at one, I am not fearful of the January crowds.
Trying to not get involved in certain things that I don't need need to be. I have to create boundaries for my health.
Reflecting on some positive comments made about me this week. I don't feel appreciated that often and I finally got that feeling multiple times. 
What have you been up to so far this December?

  1. I love the feeling of a fresh start in January. There are many things I love about December, but it drives me nuts that I can't even get into the Target parking lot because people are going crazy buying gifts. Thankfully, in this area it calms down after Hannukah so it should get better after tomorrow.
