An Early Resolution .....

Hi Everybody,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that you are now looking forward to the New Year.

Thank you so much for all the good wishes sent to Griff and me.

They came from as far apart as Canada and the US, India, Sweden, Italy, New Zealand and Australia and every where else and I am so grateful for each and every one.

We had a lovely  family Christmas Dinner and Boxing Day was my relaxing day and really peaceful.

This image is just how I feel after all that turkey and Christmas pudding and mince pies and chocolates and .... need I go on ???

But I  am going to make a conscious effort in 2014 to lose some weight so that I can get back into my clothes again before the warmer weather  is with us once more.

So come the 1st January out go the things that are left over from the Christmas binge and the new regime of eating less will begin.

My first goal will be my birthday in March ... which is only nine weeks away.

I am really going to have to work hard if I want to make some improvement in the way I look for that day.... and I will of course keep you posted on my progress as I go along.   Wish me luck 'oz I am sure going to need it

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Morning Christina,
    Pleased you had a good Christmas, my dear husband was very generous and gave me his man flu cough and cold to us ladies, feeling a bit better today. I love the image on your card. Good luck to you.

  2. What a fabulous image Christina! If only my knees would hold up I would join her!! Pat x

  3. Glad to hear that you've had a wonderful Christmas Christina and I think we all feel like we've gained a bit of weight over the past few days. We ate mainly meats and salads here in Australia because of the hot weather but then......... there are the desserts and that's where the good intentions go amiss. Ah well ! A few days of non eating will fix the problem. haha! I wish you and Griff a wonderful 2014 and look forward to more beautiful card making inspiration from you.

  4. Hope you had a lovely Christmas and best wishes for 2014!
    That picture looks so like me! I will be joining you on the keep fit circuit me thinks...

  5. Hi Christina, take comfort in the knowledge that you're not on your own with the over going it.

  6. Glad you had a good Christmas, and as with most of us New Year means trying to loose weight, I started after last new year and still have not lost those extra inches - LOL, Hope you and yours have a great new year

  7. Warm Christmas wishes to you & Griff! I feel the same way, we need to stop eating! It's hard when there are so many nice treats at this time, and everyone wants you to enjoy their specialty. January will be here soon, so good habits will return.Happy Healthy New Year to all. BethAnn M.

  8. sending you positive vibes Christina. I am on the same journey since Oct and am losing slowly but surely. I too have overdone the holidays but l am backing up for a fresh start today. Will keep you in my thoughts. Good luck. Hugs from the kamperstampr!

  9. Hee hee Great card Christina and your not alone in the overeating. Good to hear you had a lovely relaxing Christmas. Best of luck with your new regime xXx

  10. Hi Christina. The picture is so me,lol. Boxing day was a very large family day, where we ate, had a small tipple, and buckets of laughter!! So next week back to small meals and very long walks!! I hope you and the film crew have a fantastic 2014. Good luck with the diet!! Hugs. Jan.x

  11. Hi there Christina. Gosh - you must have been listening to me over the past 2 days when I told my other half that enough is enough - and we need to start thinking seriously about a change of lifestyle lol. I have been to the gym today to look at joining and I am dreading it, but needs must, as they say. Good luck with your efforts :)

  12. Thanks for the giggle that is just how I feel even though I did have a long walk around our daughters property after lunch on Boxing day. Too many sweets is my problem but I am back on bread and water today. Have a great 2014.
