It’s time to have a little holiday fun…WIAW style!

Be sure to head over to Peas & Crayons, thank our lovely hostess, Jenn, and check out all the other fantastically delicious link-ups for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday!

Like I said on Monday, I’ve really gotten into the Christmas spirit lately…

Christmas Scrubs

Love my Christmassy scrubs…and my new owl cup! πŸ˜€

I’ve been sipping on warm holiday spices…

I’ve started spiking my egg nog coffee…

Aww, c’mon, what’d you THINK I was spiking it with? πŸ˜‰

And I’ve also been doing a bit of indulging…

In some of these:

Christmas Cookies

A couple of these:

And maybe just a few of these:

Ok, ok…so maybe it was the whole damn plate!

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again,

Cookies are my kryptonite!

And SINCE I know I have absolutely no perception or understanding of the word “willpower” once faced with a platter of buttery sugary delightment, I’ve taken some steps to help maintain a little balance…

Mouth-watering salads,Β

And just about anything stuffed inside collard wraps!

Yep, there has been a LOT of green around here lately.

What can I say, it’s not TOO easy being green!

Whoops, how’d THOSE get in there? πŸ˜‰

But seriously, even though I have entered at least one sugar coma due to cookie over-indulgence, I have to say I’m doing a heck of a lot better than I have in the past. Honestly, some of the treats I’ve eaten haven’t even tasted as good as I thought they would.

Proof that it pays to eat clean!

And besides, my cravings have been more for the PAN-cookie variety anyway…

But really? Can you blame me? πŸ˜‰

How are you doing maintaining balance over the holidays?

What’s the best TREAT you’ve eaten this week?
