Festive/Party Season

Christmas is almost at our door step and with it comes various social gatherings. I love the month of December, it’s the beginning of summer and a great time to catch up with friends before everyone jets off on holidays in January and February.

Today marked the first day of Summer vacation for me and already my diary has filled up very quickly. Don’t get wrong I’m quite happy that I have plans everyday this week. But this summer will also test me with things like being realistic about not being able to prep my meals everyday, eating out more often and catching up for drinks with friends.

Last week I didn’t really have time to dwell on these feelings because I was busy studying. It’s been at the back of my mind but I tried not to think about it. The fact that my usual routines are going to be derailed this summer can either be a positive or negative thing. I’m going to try and chill out and just go with the flow.

Sunday night my phone was literally buzzing with friends messaging me to remind me of Lunch dates, Christmas Parties and Birthday Parties. During the semester I can make up the excuse of school work…sad that I sometimes still avoid having to eat out/step outside my comfort zone.

To try and combat all the fears I’ve decided to do everything in moderation. I know my limits and how much I can cope with. Even if I indulge in a few bad habits for a short while I won’t overindulge all summer. I will try and value good eating and drinking habits. I refuse to cocoon myself this holiday season!

Have An Awesome Start To The Week šŸ™‚

    I think you should embrace the changes in your routine – you will be a stronger person! I definitely feel the same way when that happens to me, but I always learn and grow from it. I’m so excited for the holiday season, but I’m not really feeling it yet… I need snow on the ground, then I’ll be ready!
