I’m not sure exactly why but I seem to be less tolerant to the excesses of Christmas.

Did I always get sleepy after eating WAY WAY TOO MUCH DELICIOUS FOOD? Or am I just remembering through rose coloured memories?
I just can’t seem to sustain a full week of eating terribly rich and highly sugary foods like I used to. Three days into my week of debauchery and I’m opting for my normal healthy breakfast of yogurt + oats + banana + raw cashews. I’ve also started having a healthy lunch that contains a reasonable amount of calories – when did this start happening?

I used to go a full 7 days up until the New Year before I thought about getting back on the ‘normal’ eating band wagon.

Don’t get me wrong… there are still an abnormally large amount of chocolates and rich deserts in the house and I’m doing my best to get through them all (in between my sensible meals of course). I am eating WAY WAY more chocolate and sugar than I do in my daily life and it’s making me feel a bit crap. But even this seems like much less than I used to be able to handle.

I almost want it to be over so I can get back to normal… I’m not sure if I should binge hard and get it over with or be sensible and stretch it out over the coming weeks. A part of me wants to start the New Year with a clean slate – and a clean kitchen cupboard.

Please don’t suggest giving it away – I am not yet that mature and the idea is abhorrent to me LOL!

I will make my way through – and maybe next year I will rely on the chocolates and sweets given to me instead of adding to the problem with my massive amounts of baking. I hope you’re getting through the silly season without getting diabetes.
