The first day back after a couple of days off is always a drag. Fortunately, it is a short week with another long weekend coming up!
Overall, we survived the travelling, the gift giving, and—more importantly—the eating. I had one or two dozen too many cookies, but that's okay . . . it's Christmas! I had plenty of good home brews courtesy of TnT brewery. . . . Needless to say, I've got some work to do to recover!
I plan on doing a full write-up for tomorrow's post with some of the 2FNS events that occurred, as we got a good group run in. But for today, as there is much to be done to make up for the long weekend, I'll have to bid you adieu.
Make sure to run your butts off for the weigh-in tomorrow! Going ahead as scheduled!
Christmas cookies! Damn you and your deliciousness.
I must say that I think this year I was able to abstain from a lot of the guilt-inducing treats, or I was at least able to eat only a couple instead of a plateful. But the monkey bread on Monday morning sent me a little overboard. I take comfort in knowing that I eat monkey bread only once (maybe twice, if we have it at Thanksgiving) a year.
Granted, that is how many people approach Christmas cookies, but, if you think about it, I had a large serving of monkey bread in the morning . . . and that was it. For Christmas cookies, so many people think “It’s only once a year!” but they are feasting on those cookies for up to a month before the actual holiday! And then on the day of the holiday, they eat even more!
So anyway, I am relatively proud of what I was able to do this Christmas. And I think a lot of it was knowing that I had Jono there with me, probably also munching on a meatball cookie or a candy cane vanilla cookie, but his presence motivated me to not eat myself sick.
