5 Simple Tips for Healthy Eating this Holiday Season

Many of you have made comments about my husband’s noticeable weight loss that has occurred this year. He has lost over 50 lbs since May! While I have been been putting on the baby weight, he has been focusing on his health in a major way and has lost more weight than our four year old weighs!

Before and After 50 lb weight loss

One of the things that Dave has really changed has been how he eats. Going from someone who drank a lot of Dr. Pepper everyday to someone who loves to stay home and make delicious, healthy food is a pretty huge transformation itself!

He recently started a blog called Run.Eat.Poop.Repeat. where he is documenting his experience as he continues to strive to live a healthy lifestyle. He offered to share some of his tips to eating healthy during the holiday season for all of you! Although he hasn’t experienced a Thanksgiving or Christmas with his new, healthy lifestyle, he has endured anniversaries, birthdays, etc throughout the year that he has really learned from. If you are interested in following along with his journey and getting more tips, you can follow his blog. He would LOVE the support!

Here are his 5 Simple Tips for Eating Healthy this Holiday Season:

DIY Christmas Canvas Decor

I am living in a new place this year, so it was fun to be able to create new ideas for my Christmas decor. One thing I really wanted to make were some custom canvases to go above a little table I have on the side of my couch. I looked in the stores for something similar to what I was looking for, but when I couldn’t find anything I liked, I knew I needed to create it myself.

Non Candy Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Adults

I felt the magic of swiss herbs in Ricola® Herb & Throat drops as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #swissherbs

I always have the hardest time with stocking stuffer ideas for my husband. I don’t want to spend my money on pointless little knickknacks that he won’t ever use and I don’t want to fill up his stocking full of candy either. This is the same struggle he has when shopping for stocking stuffers for me too! Over the years, I have found that some of the best stocking stuffers for adults are practical gifts that are nicer things that the person wouldn’t usually buy for themselves.

Personalized Christmas

I think I am the most excited for Christmas this year. More so than I think I have ever been. Part of it may be the fact that we are kind of missing out on Thanksgiving, due to the fact that we will be on airplanes all day that day. I decided to get my house all decorated for Christmas before we go to Disneyland, so it will be all ready for us when we get home. I love coming home to a clean house and coming home to a clean AND decorated house will be magical!

Christmas Decor Idea with Custom Stockings on www.girllovesglam.com

Three years ago, I decided to decorate with mint, red, gold, and “gilver” and it is a color combination that I have really loved ever since. I love that I found a color combination that I haven’t gotten tired of because I have been able to switch out a few pieces of decor and add other things to make it feel more modern and on trend for the current year, without having to completely change all of my Christmas decor. This year, I wanted to add some more personal touches into our decor and I knew that Shutterfly would be just the way to do that. [Read more…]

LDS Missionary Tag Christmas Ornament

I have been waiting a long time to be able to write this post. I have waited for over 2 years. My little brother is FINALLY home after serving an LDS mission in Bogota, Colombia. He has been back for just over a week! I wanted to be able to give him a little gift when he got home, but wanted it to just be a small thing since he is getting Christmas gifts from me so soon too. I decided to make him an LDS missionary tag Christmas ornament!
