We also got all of our presents for our UK and EU family members wrapped and shipped yesterday. This is a great accomplishment for us as we are usually running behind at the holidays. This year we are feeling nicely prepared and slightly ahead of the game.
Exercise: Rest Day (I did have a dream about running my first ever 5K race, does that count???)
Breakfast: Small portion of leftover PD Fruit & Yogurt Parfait with sweet dark cherries, tea
Lunch: PD Baked Tortilla Chips with some PD Onion Dip and the last of my PD Pico de Gallo Especial. Snacked on the chips while preparing a late lunch of tostadas with PD Unfried Black Beans, PD Not-Yo Cheeze Sauce, and PD Onion Dip with chives. Also had a trifle with PD Chocolate Chia Pudding and a crumbled PD Cherry Cacao Muffin. Lunch was really late, after our post office trip, so I was HUNGRY!
Dinner: Big salad with tons of veggies, PD Spicy Bird Seed & PD Creamy Ranch Dressing, PD Hush Puppies with a sauce of PD Soy Yogurt mixed with Frank's Red Hot Sauce. I love the hush puppies, so delicious. They are great heated in the toaster over for breakfast too. We each had a warm PD Cherry Cacao Muffin after dinner as well.

Mindfulness: I have changed a few habits, like not eating while reading or on the laptop. I don't know that I have really changed my eating habits a lot though. I still sometimes eat too fast and still tend to finish whatever portion is in front of me unless I am bursting full. When I share my insights after the challenge, I will share more on what I have learned and plan to take forward from this mindfulness practice.
Today we plan to do a longer 1 hour Yin Yoga video and work on some Christmas cards. Maybe some Asian kale for dinner. Another healthy quiet day at home is in order. I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
