Three things Thursday: Somebody is trying to kill me
1. Holiday work luncheon
2. Christmas gift from my boss
3. Association-wide famous cookies from my neighbor
All of that came to me in one day. A day full of so much sugar. For someone who has sworn off sugar for the Healthy Holiday Challenge.
Yeah. I entered the Garden of Temptation.
I normally don't have a tremendously difficult time during the holidays. I indulge the day of, eating things that I couldn't have any other time or are particularly special. I am sure I have a treat here or there but it's not something I remember feeling insanely drawn to or guilty about.
Until this year. I am not sure whether it's because I have the mind set of "I can't have it" rather than "I don't want it" or the bombardment of treats in such a short time. But I'm pretty sure it's not normal that I sniffed those sugar cookies for a full 3 minutes after delivery, trying to decide whether to forgo the challenge for one sweet, melt-in-you-mouth cookie.
It's only because I'm stubborn that I didn't. Well that, and dreams of Brownie Peppermint Ice Cream Cake, which I'm making Christmas Day. If I've gone this long without sugar, it's dang well going to be worth it.
