Let The Streaking Begin!

I am so excited for the holiday season that we decided to start all of our December streaks early, why wait for the 1st. Our elf, Edward, showed up yesterday and we started reading Christmas books every night already too. Mini me and I handed up 3 candy canes to strangers today and brought canned goods, tissues, and hand sanitizer to her classroom.

This is Edward, he reports good or bad behavior to the man in red

I got my 7 servings of fruit and veggies in yesterday (serving of craisins, apple, 20 baby carrots, a whole English cucumber, salad for dinner - spinach, pea pods, baby carrots, craisins). I also started my running streak today. It was just a short, slowish, 30 minute run for 2.6 miles, but it was something and it felt really good. Tomorrow will be my long run, a new longest at 11.5 miles, I'm going to do it while all of the girls are at school so I don't have to try to get it in during the weekend. It's been super cold and foggy so it will probably suck a little bit, but it needs to get done and I'm excited to have a new long!
I need to remember to report all of my points earned for the HBBC here every day, which means I'll probably have a blogging streak going on too.  
Tonight is dance, so we'll sit at the dance studio and freeze in the waiting area for and hour and a half, but the girls have so much fun that I can't be upset, they're warm in the dance rooms. We are having pasta for dinner, YUM, with some homemade sauce and peas (because I have to have peas with my pasta, I prefer the peas to the pasta).
Have a great December everyone, I'll be back tomorrow to report how the long run goes.

Question of the day - What's your favorite Christmas song?This is a tough one for me because I love Christmas music, but if I had to pick one song I'd go with Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives, it makes me smile every time! Here's a true confession, I bought the Justin Bieber Christmas album (for me, not the girls) the other day and I love it!


  1. yay! good luck on your LR! despite the will be great to have conquered a new distance :) my cousin does the same thing with the little elf at her house for her kids. actually just read about it on her blog today! haha!

    so my all time fave Christmas song is one on a CD my mom has at home. I have no idea what the name is though :/ but i know it tells a story of a little boy that meets Santa. I love it!

  2. Oh Christmas music just makes me smile!! Love the classics ;)

  3. That 11.5 miler will do awesome things for your HBBC points. I'm so annoyed that I'm sidelined this week. Hope the run was great.

    I love Christmas music, but the good old stuff.

  4. Good luck on your long run tomorrow - and the streak!
    I love Christmas music, but my favorite is all I want for Christmas is you - not the Mariah Carey version but the one from Love Actually. So good!

  5. Yay streaking! I've been having fun with that. I need to get a longer run in soon before I forget how. Eeek Favorite Christmas song? I'd have to echo the Gourmet Runner, but I love the Mariah version... straight up diva!

  6. Its not technically a christmas song but "Baby It's Cold Outside" makes my heart sing =) hehe
