Trying to regain ground lost
Monday, November 26, 2012
Holidays and family are tied to food. Not necessarily the food you regularly eat each day. No this is the lots of starches coupled with fat and often sugar food that raises the daily calorie count to numbers I don't even want to record. Just one more helping of mashed potatoes made with cream. Gravy that is so tasty and sweet potato casserole that just drips butter. The one rule I made was no alcohol until the family had all left. Did really well except for two small glasses of wine. This was just to keep my willpower available, not necessarily working, but not totally impaired. The other trick was not to buy an butter. That way the food did not have a high fat content. It was wonderful and now I am back to the healthy food list. Christmas will be easier but the menu is must less proscribed and more flexible. On to December!!!
