Jonesy's Oh What Fun Challenge

Recommended Posts

Michael Scott Christmas gif

 

So last year I let work stress and changes bum out my end of the year cheer. This year I won't let that happen so I've been listening to Christmas music since before Thanksgiving. It’s the end of the year and things can get pretty hectic and busy so I'm scaling back my challenge. I want to avoid regaining bad habits but I don’t want to stress myself out. It’s the most wonderful time of the year for a reason and my Christmas is going to be awesome!

Did some Christmas shopping last night and bought 3 used books (they were published in the early 90s) for under $10 which means I still have $10 more to spend on one of my secret santa gifts! I also bought a Hogwarts mug that may or may not make it to my book club white elephant gift. I'm saying I might keep it. Lol.

So awesome you're still going strong on no soda!

I almost caved two days ago--I've been off it since September

 

I've almost caved so many times, SO MANY TIMES! It might be cheating but I'm not calling it cheating but if my carbonation craving gets bad enough,  I'll have a sparkling water with lemon or some cranberry juice. Other than that, unsweetened Iced Tea has been a savor for me.

I agree that that's not cheating. If your goal was specifically to dump carbonation then maybe, but if it's because colas are super addictive (ugh they so are) and hard to avoid, then naw, sparkling water is a helper. I have gone towards some diet teas w/ artificial sweetener sometimes, but they're just not addictive like dr pepper 10 is so it's no big to me. Usually now it's unsweet tea or water.

I love sparkling water. It feels like a treat.  If it helps ditch the soda, then it's a good thing.

I don't have an oven to bake anything so I was going to skip it but there are plenty of no bake recipes! 

 

Talked to my sister about going to see the fantasy lights this year. One of the golf courses sets up a drive through fantasy light display with over 300 displays. Tentative plan to go on the 17th! There is also a Grinch Photo Shoot being held at one of the local pet groomers that I think might be fun but we will see if I have time on the 10th. The MLS Cup is that night and we are finally in it after 8 long years of making the playoffs!
