Christmas and Confidence
Good evening my friends How was everyone’s weekend? I hope it was lovely
I have been having a blast with my Mom for the past week, but all good thing must come to an end sometime…
I had to drive her to the airport this morning. It was hard to leave her there, but now I can really start counting down until the day I get to fly home I am so excited! Only 16 sleeps! With finals approaching, I know the time will fly by
I know that a ton of my posts have been Christmas related lately, but it is my favourite holiday and all, so I can blab about it as much as I want It is so easy for me to get into the “Christmas spirit” I have been Christmas shopping all week with my Mom, listening to Christmas music, and planning some of the baking that I want to do once I get home I sure thought I was as full of Christmas spirit as I could get, but with how my night went yesterday and the way I spent my entire day today, I can definitely say I am even more excited for Christmas now
Last night my Mom and I walked around the park after we went to church
London does such a beautiful job with decorating the park downtown
It was my Mom’s very first time walking through the park when it was all lit up She loved it!
The park was filled with families (even a family of snowmen) The park was so busy and felt just like the Christmas season should!
There is even a display of reindeer pulling Santa in his sleigh!
Last year I was able to get a picture sitting with the Santa statue
This year, the park was so busy that my Mom and I would have had to push the little kiddies out of the way in order to get to Santa.
We thought we’d let the children have their fun…
So we did a mini photo shoot of our own
And then went home, listened to more Christmas music, and…
I got to open an early Christmas present
Another friend for my other kitchen gadgets Just in time for all of the Christmas baking I plan on doing
If last night wasn’t filled with enough Christmas festivities, today was
We had our Student Council Christmas Party from 1:00 until dinner time. It was a blast Santa even came
Yes, my life is full of Christmas spirit But, it’s also full of something else, too!
I haven’t talked too much about the LIVEFIT program that I recently started since I have been busy with my Mom and school, but ever since I have started this program (which wasn’t that long ago – Thursday) I have had a completely positive outlook and mindset.
I am a quite positive individual and strive to live my life to the fullest. I enjoy each day and if I am ever in a situation that isn’t “ideal” I am usually able to make the best of it and find something good in the “not so good”
Having said that, I feel as though I have become even more positive since starting this program. I am not saying that this program is magic (I think the visit my Mom has a lot to do with my positivity actually), but I think that since I am working toward something, following a plan that demonstrates a healthy lifestyle that I believe in, and knowing that I am doing something good for my body is also contributing to my heightened level of confidence
I will go into this topic further in another post this week because I want to explain more in depth about how different my mindset is with the type of training “phase” I am doing right now, but I just wanted to mention it tonight so you all knew what was coming up in a future post and that I am happy with my decision on starting the program Today was leg training day for me and tomorrow is a rest day which is great because I need to start studying for my finals
How early do you start studying for exams?
How was your weekend?
Have you been to any Christmas parties yet?
Do you know anyone who looks at a situation with a “cup half empty” attitude? Do you ever fall into this mindset?
Good night friends Training talk and a few recipes for you this week! Since my last day of classes is Tuesday I will have a bit more time (during my study breaks) so do some cooking
