So I sure did some "nibbling" the past couple of weeks. 
It was the Christmas Season, and as it's coming to a close I'm gradually starting to get back on track with my nutrition major-esque healthy eating habits. 
It was good while it lasted, but it did start to get a bit out of control and I don't like feeling out of control. 

I've been exercising all throughout the season, making sure I have the time to get in a little cardio or strength every day, with only a few exceptions. I'm trying to keep up my running so I can get right back into doing races in the spring... 
I got my grades in at school; straight A's so far so it looks like I'll be going to Italy the end of June and most of July. 
This will definately affect both my eating and exercise, but I'm sure I'll learn to adapt. 

That's one of my strong points, I feel. Learning to adapt to new situations, trying to accept change as it comes and roll with it. I was discussing this with my mom the other day; how I'm better now but it wasn't always as easy for me to deal with change. 

I think it was my "big change" into eating healthier, exercising more regularly, and becoming overall more fit and healthy, that really made me realize how good change can be... and that sometimes it's needed more than we even know. 

So I'm ready for a change. 
I'll put up my "holiday splurges" blog soon, and that will be the end of it. 
New year, even newer Kristin. 
I plan on making the change back to the healthy Kristin I was before this holiday season, and hopefully even better. 
I LOVE the way I feel when I eat right, go for good long runs, get enough water, enough sleep. 
So thats my goal for 2008. Keep up the progress I've made, not let little slipups get me down. 
I'm ready to start anew! 

As for today's nibbles... 
**My "splurges" post AND Goals for '08 will be up soon! 
I'm currently in Greenville at my friend's lovely house and I have work later... 
[Breakfast this morning was an eggwhite omelette with a bit of full-fat cheese (not so good) some heart-healthy fat filled avocado (very good) and salsa with a clementine on the side. Mexieggs!]
Then tomorrow I'll be in New York with my Mom and Sister... 
(More splurging of course, lets see if I can keep it somewhat contained!) 

Hopefully by next week we'll do a big house cleanout of Christmas Treats etc and start with some healthy eats for the new year! I've got a GREAT new Skinny Bitch in the Kitch recipe book and I am DYING to try the new recipes! 
I'll post pictures and opinions when I try anything new! =)

Time to relax for now...
