I took a complete rest day today. I think that was a good idea. I got up a little later than normal and started doing some work while I had coffee (lookin’ good!).
I have to laugh at the death grip on this coffee cup, too. No one would be able to pry it out of my hands!
After John got up, I made some breakfast. A good hearty bowl of Wheatena done banana custard style. Topped with honey and PB.
Very good. Felt good to have a nice fiber breakfast as well.
I tell you, some years are better than others in terms of the sugar monster. It’s not nibbler this year, but something bigger LOL! This one needs a name as he is quite the beast.
Years ago, I had cut sugar out completely after working through “The Sugar Addict’s Recovery Program.” I really do think I was addicted to sugar and white things. I even went so far that year as to have a pumpkin pie made with no sugar at all. I do have to say that was too far. Ick.
I have now come to where I know what sugar level I can have and be fine with, and I have crossed that line this week (which Helen noted). While I love Christmas and all its associated goodies, there is a lot to be said for my normal way of eating and how good I feel when I do that.
Lunch was getting back to more super foods – this baked sweet potato was topped with laughing cow, sauteed broccoli, and a little BBQ chicken. I liked it, too!
Job #2 was totally dead during the day. I did make more cookies this afternoon and had a couple with my latte.
These are my favorite cookie – nutmeg logs! I make them one time per year, and maybe that makes them taste special or something, because they are rare. I actually was thinking how I really don’t make cookies at all except at Christmas. Like Shelley said yesterday, I will be kind of glad to be done with the sweet things.
In typical fashion, a whole bunch of work got batched over right before dinner. Guess who will be working tonight? You all get gold stars for guessing me! The nice thing is, I only have half a day tomorrow and no work on Christmas! Yay!
I reached in the freezer for a quick dinner and came up with shrimp poppers and a red pear.
I wasn’t feeling the veggies for dinner. Sometimes it is just hard for me to do veggies at more than one meal.
Now I must get back to work. I’ll be posting a quick hot 100 update on Christmas Eve, and then made preparations for dinner hosting. Have a super night!
