Sadly the second half of my month looks worse than the first half did... Note to self: don't try to do a daily challenge anywhere near Christmas in future. While there are lots of people just jumping into Christmas now that it's officially December, we were definitely one of the ones with the tree up three weeks ago. Yes, three weeks ago. I LOVE CHRISTMAS!

It seems that I always fall off the bandwagon close to the end of any sort of challenge that I do...
I guess I can chalk this up to a learning experience if nothing else. Mr.C has taken notice that I am a considerable calmer person when I am practicing regularly, and I can't help but agree. My work schedule doesn't have any sort of routine to it, so it is difficult for me to always work some "me time" into my days (but I certainly try!). I'll be spending the next 18 days (until we leave on our 12 days of Christmas journey) gearing up for (and calming down for) a few thousand kilometers on my car paired with lots of eating, drinking & being merry.
Between the 1st & 17th of December my goals are to:
-eat salad every day
-practice yoga as much as my schedule allows
-consume no alcohol
-take my vitamins every day
This is in addition to the gigantic list of Christmas "to-do's" already in existance including baking & shopping among others. I am confident that I will be as prepared physically and emotionally/mentally for this hectic Christmas by the time we walk out the door on the morning of the 18th.
What kind of stresses do you face over the holidays and how do you deal with them?
