Life’s Too Short!

Life’s Too Short! Life is way too short to be stopping yourself from enjoying your holiday season. It only comes around once a year so make the most of it!

And if you do, don't you think you then have a great New Year's Resolution ready made? It's the perfect excuse to make sure you start off the new year with a determined outlook to get the weight off and be fit and healthy.

There's nothing wrong with gaining 5 lbs! No one is going to care! Life is too short and food is soooo good! Eat up!

Is that girl not wearing any clothes? What a weird picture.

Omg I thought I was the only one who noticed the pant less model

I enjoy my Christmas blowout too much to think about weight gain. I can worry about that after the holidays.

Everyone will notice I don't want to be a soft plushy teddy bear this christmas. You can give me as a gift under the tree and I'll unwrapped it on Christmas. But no way I eat right all year round. You can have a joyous feast and eat good foods also eat take a few only a few bites of something sweet like mama's homemade apple pie fyi my pastries are delicious but only in moderation not overeat muffin cakes and remember after Christmas run forest run haha I love that movie I saw it last night and boy got some laughs so yeah have a slice of pie not the whole buy no ask for seconds, thirds and so on. Moderation is key my dear☝

These sound like excuses. The key is moderation in all things.

I don't want to live in a world where we can't indulge just once a year. People must be really sad if they think moderation is good at Christmas. Get a life people. It's just once a year and you never know, it might be your last ever Christmas and you spent it quibbling over not eating a second mince pie. 

I know I definitely won't be indulging. I work too hard to be in shape. I can't ruin it because of the holidays as excuses. I've made it a lifestyle.
