First things first, MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE! Are you spending time with family and friends tonight? My family usually does a big celebration on Christmas Eve and then my boyfriend’s family celebrates Christmas Day. It works out. However, this year my parents are in Colorado. We will be flying out Christmas night to see them so my regular Christmas Eve routine will be different this year.
I will still celebrate Christmas Eve in my own way. ‘Tis the season, right? I am hoping to go to a local church service in the evening, watch a Christmas movie or show at some point, and savor one of my favorite holiday treats.
You know what my favorite holiday treat is???
Hot cocoa! I have been saving some tasty hot cocoa packets for tonight to go with my Christmas movie or show. No, I don’t get crafty and make my own. Although, I should. It may even taste better. But, I do use hot milk with my cocoa and oh my goodness is it good.
Another favorite holiday treat of mine is ginger snaps. I don’t see any in my near future so I am sticking with the hot cocoa today. But man, have you ever tasted homemade ginger snaps?? To. Die. For. Maybe next year I will be more in the baking mood.
For those of you who think treats are off limits or the diet starts January 1st or you must run off the treat you eat, please think again. I know I say this a lot, but being restrictive can lead to very negative behaviors. Love your body and treat it well. Enjoy the holidays, even the treats.
Let’s make this fun. Name your FAVORITE holiday treat in the comments below.
Merry Christmas, friends!
