Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.
Hello, darlings. All alive out there, no major holiday-induced injuries? Good. We spent this holiday with J.’s family. Wrestling with nephews, performing in a small Christmas concert organized by nieces, and eating!
Honestly, I can’t remember eating so much anytime in recent memory. I struggle with eating enough, I just don’t get hungry very often – much to the confusion of my husband who marvels that I can survive on a diet that’s a fraction of his. Small amounts of food fill a small body up…usually.
I went completely overboard this weekend! Cinnamon Pecan French Toast, ham and piles of western potatoes (meaning slathered in sour cream, cheese, and onions), my culinary genius sister-in-law’s baked ziti, and not nearly enough salad. To say nothing of the goodies that came in stockings. And the candy scattered all over three houses. Oh dear.
Which, as you may have guessed, means that the obligatory New Year’s diet starts a bit sooner this year. The combined forces of Birth Control, laziness, and the all-consuming desire I have to hibernate in winter have turned my physique inside out and that ends today!
