Personally, you could never talk me into giving up sweets during training. Even if you told me not eating sweets for a month would take 5 minutes off my marathon time, it's still not worth it. This is why I'm being a supportive friend and eating even more sweets than usual, you know, for them.
Other than baking and eating cookies, I decided that I had waited long enough and I finally got Faith her Halloween costume. Last year, Faith was an angry cow:
|Moo moo bitches|
Faith didn't get a say in her costume last year, so I decided to let her choose her own at Target. Once we got in front of the display, she made up her mind pretty quickly. My excessive pushing of horses on her paid off and she chose the zebra. I tried the costume on her at the store to check that she would walk in it and she wouldn't walk in it....she only wants to RUN in it. I guess she wants to be an accurate zebra. :)
Of course I put the costume back on her so I could show my husband and I took a video of her attacking Peanut in her costume. I guess zebras hunt coonhounds?
I get a little overzealous about the holidays now that we have Faith. It used to be "Oh, there's candy corn on that lady's desk, I guess it's Halloween season" and now I'm contemplating costume choices for over a month before the day. Also (don't tell my husband) but I've already started listening to Christmas carols. Faith doesn't mind, in fact she seems to really enjoy "Jingle Bells". :)
Do you get excited for holidays or are you like the old me and complain how Christmas displays seem to pop up earlier and earlier every year?
Have you ever given up sweets?
