My Mantra


The holiday season is filled with so many delights for the taste buds.

I have been repeating my daily hourly mantra for weeks now...

"A moment on the lips, a life time on the hips."

So far so good...

This is stunning!!

Fuzzy Tales said...

I gave up that mantra years ago and it shows. LOL.

Just remember that none of us knows how long the Fates have granted us, Catherine, and while I don't advocate for going on a full-out binge, I do suggest treating yourself in moderation.

Because who wants to lie on their death bed and have regrets about passing up one chocolate or one cookie? :-)

zaza said...

I hear ya Catherine. Someone once said "moderation is the key" --- obviously never met me!
Enjoy the holidays and yes indulge in a few sweet treats!
Remember there is always January 1st!

So far I've done pretty good but I think when I do some baking this week I will be done for...oh well it's Christmas!

TexWisGirl said...

oh yeah. :)

Hot Rocks said...

Here is another saying, that I recently read" Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!"
You will do fine Catherine...just plan out when you are having your treat, and make it special!

Laurie said...

I'm right there with you Catherine! I'm trying very hard to keep my blinders on.
Thanks for allowing me to use Banjo! He's such a sweetheart, mischievous and all!

Oh but Christmas only comes once a year! I'll be good later! :)

kittykye said...

Uh oh, I didn't get the memo on that mantra... The Christmas cookies have been flowing a little too much around here lately!! ;)

Tamago said...

Oh I love the mantra - so true!! I need to keep it in mind, too!

Ann said...

That is one sweet photo. Good for you sticking with the just say no :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Well---I can tell you that being on a diet during the Christmas season is NOT easy... I am staying away from all sweets and junk food... It's not easy --but if the scales are good to me in January, it will all be worthwhile...

Enjoy your delights for the taste buds...
Hugs,
Betsy

Lin said...

I know what you mean! Add in the fact that I'm a slug these days with my foot all bandaged up and I feel like a Macy's Day balloon. Ugh.

The Purr Diaries said...

I can't help myself on Christmas day!

Banjo may have not liked being stalked by the household paparazzi, but you captured him in his 'me time' perfectly!!
