I have to admit, guys, I’ve had a tough day eating-wise. I’ve been so tempted by the Christmas cookies all around, and I blame it all on my splurge on Saturday! It’s like I broke the barrier and now I’m having a hard time getting back in my groove. I’m hoping I’ll snap out of it tomorrow.
This afternoon my colleague got a gift of homemade Christmas tree cookies. I had half of one – chewy and delicious!
Then I had a Think Organic Chocolate Coconut bar. I LOVE these bars – they are just fruit and nuts and are surprisingly filling and satisfying. I probably didn’t even need this at 3:30 but I ate it anyway.
And THEN I had a small Christmas cookie (a thin wafer thing) just before leaving work.
I had absolutely no plans to drink tonight, but my mother in law dropped off an open bottle of wine that she didn’t like. Well I LOVED it so I had 4 oz while cooking dinner. It couldn’t go to waste!
Eh. This dinner wasn’t that great. Chicken breast sauteed in sesame oil with broccoli, brown rice, red pepper flakes, lemon and ginger. It was boring. Probably didn’t help my eating today!
Total dinner calories: 342.
With wine: 434.
I did NOT need dessert tonight, but I had TWO bourbon balls! C’mon, Kath!

I need to drink a big glass of water and go get in bed to read!
Normally, I wouldn’t worry about dessert and wine on a weeknight, but after the higher-than-normal weekend and the office party tomorrow night and the office foosball tourney (with pizza and beer) on Thursday and the sure-to-be-higher-than-normal Christmas week coming up, I need to keep a close eye on my calories and make sure I’m putting 100% good foods in my body.
However, if I do gain a pound – or even two – I can have them back off in a month. Like I said earlier, my weight is all in my control. So it’s not the end of the world, but if I can make it through with minimal gain, I’ll be better off – for my weight AND my health.
Merry Christmas All! Whew.
