I tried! I made a handwritten list that I entered when I got back home... but it's hard to guesstimate homemade foods that were made by others. Luckily, most of what I ate was whole foods, and I didn't have to try to brainstorm about the other ingredients. I'm sure I was off in quantities of some things. I spent quite a while in front of the fruit tray! and I wasn't counting pieces, either. LOL
I did pretty well. But I didn't obsess about it. It was Christmas! gotta cut myself some slack sometimes.

No, but first thing Dec. 26, I was back to tracking.
No computer could've accommodated everything I ate on Christmas!

Yes I record it everyday and was not surprised that I was over on both days but I expected that and was back to my normal routine today!

Yes I did. Unfortunately, the list was way too long.

No, and I won't New Years Day, either. Just for me, personally...I just need to have 1 day (esp. a holiday) that I don't need to track, and just relax a bit with it.
I can pretty much eye ball something that day and know if the portion is correct, and know if that food is high in fat, high in carbs. Christmas I doubled up on greenbeans, only ate a tiny helping of mashed potatoes, ate more prime rib, said no to bread.
It helps, too, that I'm not big on desserts, lol :)
Did I record all my food Christmas Eve and Day? What And put myself on Santa's naughty list for next year.....No Ho Ho

I found Christmas Eve and Day (with party and pot luck dinner) difficult to record at a time I wanted to spend my time elsewhere. I gave it a good faith effort and then listed the rest (that I could remember) in notes. I didn't do extremely well avoiding every fattening item, but only ate a small portion of what I would have eaten before SP. What about the rest of y'all?
