Well, Thanksgiving was about 2 weeks ago and I think its finally out of my system. I weighed in yesterday and everything seems to be back on track. Unfortunately this happens as we enter danger season A.K.A. Christmas time.
Christmas is a time to be with the ones you love and to be with friends and family. My wife and I spent some time with friends the other night decorating sugar cookies. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea right. Lets just roll around in frosting and sugary sprinkles for an hour or so and see what happens. Well, I am proud to say, not much happened. I stayed strong and didn't go near them, which is more than I can say for the people I was with.
We also spent some time running errands and doing some Christmas shopping this week. Its usually customary when doing shopping of prolong periods to get a little hungry. That's definitely true for my wife and I. We were making our rounds in Target and we were both hit with the sweet smell of mini pizzas by the express Pizza Hut by the entrance. We ignored as best as we could, but knew we wouldn't make it long without something in our guts. That's when the Heavens parted and God sent an Angel. WingStop.
We got some garlic Parmesan and some bbq. It was in the words of Schmidt from the new Fox hit series New Girl "Scrummy". Did I mention how awesome it is to have a wife that eats wings. Well it is.
Anyway. all that to say is that the closer to the holiday of Christmas it get, the harder it is to eat right. Next week I have two Christmas parties for work. one will be difficult, the other I shall refer to as Meatmas. Expect to get details of the slaughter soon.
