‘Tis the season


This week, I have walked through a veritable minefield of food and I’ve stepped on a few.  Not unlike a lot of people, I find the holidays can be a bad time to try to control your eating when you haven’t felt the need to do so previously.  Yesterday, we had a relative come over for dinner.  I could’ve excused myself afterward to hit the gym or go for a walk.  Instead, I had a cupcake.  Yeah, I know, what a compromise.

Today, we had a holiday lunch at work and what says holiday like pizza?  I actually controlled myself rather well (one slice of veggie, one slice of cheese, a salad and some tortilla chips).  But, what’s a holiday lunch without dessert?  So, two cookies, a brownie and some excellent Indian dessert made with mangoes later, I am sugared-up and caloried-out.

This was the week I was supposed to be eating like I have some sense.  I decided to stay away from meat for two weeks.  Typically, this bodes well for me.  However, for some reason, I’ve decided to abandon common sense for overindulgence.  The funny part — it’s only Wednesday.

At any rate, I have to get it together.  If I keep this up, I’ll have to slim down to fit into a Santa suit.
