#35: Busy and Blessed in December: Why Consistency is Key

Ah, this week has been so full!  I spent two days baking for the holidays, and then I delivered my treats to the usual suspects:  my friends in the clinic at work, my friends in the Mill at work, our friends over at Station 51, two of my local fire department at 37 and 32, and my old pals from Huntington at Station 31.  That’s 200 cookies, 70 peanut butter cups, 80 pieces of fudge, and 40 truffles delivered safely into the hands of my work friends and four fire departments – Happy Holidays!!  This is the one time of year that I don’t substitute chick peas or add protein powder to my baking, hehe.  I do, however, use organic and fresh ingredients, so they taste amazing and can easily satisfy your sweet tooth in just a couple of small bites.  Win!  This week, I also picked up a couple of extra shifts, met with a friend for yogurt and another friend for dinner, caught up on phone calls and client emails, wrapped Christmas gifts, mailed cards and packages, and completed the second draft of my book.

Speaking of my book, I have a phone date later today with a dear friend who will be the first to proof-read it.  I have been dabbling in book layouts and cover designs, and I am diligently working on yet another certification which I hope to complete by the end of the month.  I’m developing my business plan for next year, generating ideas, creating plans, and organizing courses, workshops, appointments, and book schedules. 

As is yet another tradition, I have already mapped out my New Year’s resolutions for 2019, and I am excited to see what the upcoming year has in store! I’ve grown so much in 2018, and I can’t wait to keep the momentum going into 2019!

To help maintain my sanity (-ish!) during this busy and exciting time of year, I keep consistent in my eating and workout habits.  I spend time with friends (and my kitties!) and focus on my sleep schedule. How are YOU faring this holiday season?  Need any pointers or are you pretty much on track?  Share below, or shoot me an email for some tips!

See you next week! Be blessed.
