So Christmas is upon us, with apologies to my dear friends who celebrate Hanukah......it's the most wonderful time of the year, and also, arguably, the most calorie laden time of the year!
What are you most looking forward to enjoying? For me it the delicioius assortment of cookies that find their way to my parent's house! Or is the pecan laden cinnamon rolls that come fresh out of the oven on Christmas morning at their house? Or perhaps it is the lasagna with homemade noodles and sauce that is dripping with cheese that is not to be missed!
So you get the picture....the holiday is completely intermingled with love, family and scary calories. My goal this year is to focus on the family and the love and enjoy small amounts of the unnecessary calories. I will let you know how I do.
The truth is that since I had successfully completely altered the way I eat, it is truly difficult for me to overeat. My stomach simply cannot hold as much as it used to. This is a good thing! My plan is enjoy whatever I want on the 24th and 25th and jump right back into the plan on the 26th.
So Merry Christmas to you all....I will check back in on the 26th! God bless. I hope you enjoy, however you celebrate!
