Challenge of the Day – Day 12

Today’s challenge is going to be to NOT TO LOSE MY FREAKING MIND!!!  I got the Christmas “I’ve still got so much to do, but zero time to do it” Blues, and I don’t know how I’m going to get it all done. Actually, I do – I gave my husband half of my list of To Do’s and tonight I’m going to finish my half of the list. I WILL GET IT DONE IF IT KILLS ME!!! Oh, and did I mention the lovely cold that has invaded my sinuses? Yeah, that’s one Christmas gift I could do without, thankyouverymuch.

Okay, the REAL challenge for today is…calm my stress with good foods that will energize me instead of succumbing to the siren song of the junk/comfort food.  I need to be especially good to myself over the next few days and unfortunately sugar isn’t going to help me do that, so I’ve already got a veggie-heavy meal planned for tonight and I’m guzzling water as well. My new favorite snack is an idea that I got from Debby – half an apple with Laughing Cow cheese shmeared on it topped with a sprinkling of walnuts. SO YUMMY!!! 

What are your feel-good snacks? Got any challenges of your own for this week?
