I'm done! Enough is enough.
STOP THE HOLIDAY FOOD MADNESS!!!!!
Why is Christmas only wished with calories, fat grams, and sugar? Seriously, the last two weeks here at work has been a true sugar fest. We've literally gotten at least one delivery every day of some form of cheese straw, gourmet chocolate, cookie, candy, or roasted nut. We've got pies, cakes, breads, teas, hot chocolate mixes, and "reindeer food" (trailmix). Each day I've told myself I wouldn't eat anything else sweet and each day I caved.
Last night, I decided NO MORE. I'm still trying to lose 10 lbs or so of baby weight, not add to it, AND I want to be able to enjoy a few of my favorite family goodies on Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
So I am done eating badly for the next week. Besides, the last several days at work I've left feeling truly miserable. Not just feeling "emotionally fat" like women tend to do, but feeling physically blah and borderline sick from the mass sugar intake.
Not exactly the best way to get in the Christmas spirit!
I was quite happy with my decision to abstain, and figured the delivery rush was surely over by now. So I came to work this morning, put up my bags, reached for my Diet Coke, and - saw a coworker bringing in a giant new basket of cookies. Followed by a second coworker toting a large bakery box of donuts - my favorite brand.
I actually considered crying.
Instead, I took my Diet Coke to my desk, pulled out my trusty breakfast granola bar, and chowed down as planned, thinking "get behind me Satan!" every time a donut image popped in my mind.
I'm quite proud of myself for resisting. Now let's see if I can keep it up for the rest of the day.
Victory, so far, is much sweeter than cookies.
