I’ve definitely eaten too much this weekend… and almost none of it was healthy. I’m not sure, but I think my body is trying to gear up for new years resolutions by making me suffer through sugar craving and junk food rampages. The sick part about all that, is that it is kind of making me sick.
Yesterday I participated in Christmas Cookie Chaos, which is simply a bunch of girls getting together to make cookies for about seven hours. It’s all snacks and pizza and hot chocolate for party eats/drinks topped with trying about ten different batches of cookies while they were still fresh out of the oven. Sugar, and gluten, and butter, oh my! Today I tried a few, and honestly thought they were too sweet. The one I like the best was probably my own.. gluten free molasses cookies sprinkled with coconut sugar.
Perhaps if I feel sick enough, those cravings will go away?? I’ve already promised my sister we would do the whole 30 starting in January (after I return from my “retreat”. My body really needs that right now. I would start now, but I know the next few weeks is just going to be hell trying to pass up on all the holiday goodies. Usually I’m not one of those people who would make an excuse like that, but this time around, I’m pretty sure I would cave at the first sign of something tempting.
I did make it eight and a half days being gluten free. I know I can do this whole 30 thing, but for the whole 30 days, my whole heart has to be in it. I’m ok waiting.
Today I spent almost the entire day working on advent calendar fun stuff for the kids who are returning tomorrow after school. I took a break in the middle of the day to go visit Simon who needed my help with a few things at his house and had been promising me a burger (which he made himself).
At this point, it’s pretty late so anything else can wait until I am well rested and back in action tomorrow. I’ve already started my to-do list for the week, so I should be able to hit the ground running.
