Merry Christmas! Oh wait, I'm late on that one. . .
My Christmas was nice. We celebrated at my house Christmas morning and had friends over for dinner Christmas evening. It was mostly a quiet day. I didn't do even half the stuff I normally do, mostly because of my new job, and being so tired every night. I decided that I wasn't going to stress out about it, and if people didn't get their fudge, then people didn't get their fudge and I would give it to them next year. I didn't make any pies this year either, the first year in 5 years, I think, that I didn't make pies. I enjoy the baking, and the fudge making, but I just didn't have the time this year, and I decided that was okay. In fact, I bought (*gasp) cookie dough instead of making it. I didn't roll it out either, it was just boring circles. I had some left over chocolate and vanilla frosting from birthdays and we slathered that on the cookies and called it good enough. And while I missed the baking and the decorating, I also didn't. I know, that's strange, but I feel like my new job and new house has created enough stress for me, I didn't need to add more.
The downside was that it didn't feel as Christmasy as it normally does. But I didn't grow anymore grey hairs, so I think I'm okay with that too.

I was going to try to get you all up to date, but all the pictures makes for a longer post than I intended.
My weight is holding steady right around 148. I am running 2-3 times a week, and on Wednesday I ran 4 miles, which is the longest run I've done since September. My feet bothered me a little bit yesterday, but feel fine today. And they weren't that bad, so I'm not worried.
I will try to post again this week to get caught up and hopefully get back to more regular postings.
I hope you all had a safe New Year's! Happy 2015. =)
