And now begins the sugar crash

I now declare the holiday eating season over. Assuming you’re not the type of person who stocks up on clearance candy the day after Christmas, in which case you’ve still got a couple days of sugar shock to slog through. Then we all get drunk on New Year’s Eve and start dieting again.

I had a good Christmas, though I hit the snickerdoodles a bit hard, for they are cookies that are just as delicious as their name is silly. There were no bags of chocolates and candies littering the coffee table as in past years, so it was much easier to keep my body composition from becoming 2% cocoa. Family and friends fill me up more than peppermint sugar sticks ever could anyway.

Also, Happy Birthday, Cristy!

I am sorry to say that I am reading this with a bit of candy cane in my mouth. (But it’s the only one in the house, and we don’t normally have them…)

No clearance candy, though there is a Chocolate Orange with my name on it.

Happy Boxing Day!

I have to laugh because I also ate waaay too much sugar over the holidays and today I am officially back off the sugar. One of the things that strikes me every time I go on one of these sugar binges (not too often, thankfully) is how much better I feel when I’m not eating sugar. I gave away all the candy and treats that people gave me, and right now I’m baking some egg muffins to get me back on track.

I am also so happy to be back on track. Two giant meals two days in a row…. I took my first meal where I didn’t count points yesterday – replete with mac and cheese and two kinds of cake!! I am happy to be back to my LC light wedges, veggie soup and popcorn. No sugar here either.

Awesome! I unfortunately have turned into cocoa butter myself. Oh well. Nothing like the new year for new motivation!
