Stomach Stretching Exercises

It’s December 12th 2012, only thirteen more days, then I get to eat the biggest meal of the year.  This year for the first time in a long time, I am going back to the UK, so Christmas Day is going to be huge.  What has become in recent years a meal to just get though, then forget about, is about to become the mega stuffing of the last decade.

I have been in the USA for a long time, I can’t remember the last time I went home for the holidays (as they are called over here), but it was a long time ago.  I am normally slenderish, eat lots of veggies and keep pretty fit for my age.  I was actually doing quite well at staying in my skinny jeans, until someone suggested we go home to the UK for the ‘holidays’ (holidays to me means summer, beaches and sand between my toes, but oh well!)

So Uk bound we are, but ever since we decided to go, we have done nothing but eat, meal after meal,  my husbands father is visiting, so we eat with him every night, then we have to take out our customers, so we eat again, then just to be sociable, we eat some more, my stomach is stretched to it max, almost the size of the time I was last pregnant.  I guess the only good thing about it is that I am in training, getting ready for the meal of meals.  I know the turkey is going to be huge, the pudding, christmas cake, quality street and tangerines, I could go on, but the list is pretty endless, the goodies that are available at this time of year are always the best in England, I can’t wait…….    but first I need to stretch my stomach just a little bit more……
