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.
