In other news, it's just over 50 days until Christmas and tomorrow marks the start of my holiday struggle. My church does a huge bazaar every year with tons of handcrafts, linens, books, furniture, and most importantly... food. Not just any food. Traditional Norwegian fare that defies you to try to put a caloric amount on it. I'm sure you can do it, but the numbers would probably shock you into death.
Speaking of numbers:
BAM! One more pound to the half way goal!
So it's totally important that I don't completely sabotage my progress with a gorge-fest. And it totally could be. Lefse, Swedish meatballs, pie, more lefse, shrimpy sandwiches, Rømmegrøt, sweet coffee, rosettes, and I have to admit that they may very well be more lefse. What to do? It's totally a once a year event but my weight is my life. I know just one day isn't going to completely erase what I already have achieved, but then again, is one day of food pleasure worth setting back something that's for my life?
I mean c'mon! It's kicking off Christmas!
But I might have to kick my own butt afterwards.
