My boyfriend was watching football today, so I decided to head to the mall. I realize that going to the mall so close to Christmas is crazy, but I would have rather had my teeth drilled instead of watching football.
I walked around for a bit, just wandering around stores. I wanted this awesome shirt at Buckle, but they didn't have it. www.buckle.com/sinful-lucia-thermal-
I went to Aeropostale and found three hooded sweatshirts. It was an awesome deal. I paid $27.50 for almost $150 dollars worth of clothes. What was even more awesome is I was able to buy an XL and an L and they both FIT awesome. Those are some tiny shirts, and I can wear them with ease now.
I also bought some hand sanatizers at Bath and Body works.
We had our big family Christmas dinner at my Grandmother's yesterday. I have to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, so it was just easier for us to get it out of the way on Saturday.
Dinner was great, and I made good choices. I didn't over eat at all, sampled most everything on the table and enjoyed the company of my family. I mostly focused on the yummy white meat turkey (my little pouch doesn't like dark meat) and a little of the sides, but not a huge amount. I passed on the rolls and stuffing, but enjoyed a small bit of mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and baked corn.
Later on, after we had opened presents, I even allowed myself a small bit of chocolate dream pie, which is a basic pudding pie in a graham cracker crust. I think I had about 2 tablespoons worth. Honestly, it wasn't that good. I would have rather had more green bean casserole. LOL
Tomorrow night, we are going to my other Grandmother's for Christmas Eve festivities She is having
Homemade Sloppy Joes (which I will eat without the bread)
ham and cheese (again, skipping the sandwich part)
cocktail wieners in crescent rolls (skipping this one)
cheese ball made out of reduced fat cream cheese, dried beef and onion soup mix (will be enjoying some on a few whole wheat crackers)
cheese and bologna (venison) tray (yes, I will have a piece of each)
Macaroni Salad (skipping this one)
Baked Beans (I am measuring out 1/4 cup)
and various chips, cookies and other things I won't be eating
I have it planned out, and I will be eating very small amounts of the things indicated.
I am skipping desert -
I have to be at work at Midnight. Technically, I am supposed to work my entire 12 hour shift, but we decided that since we have to work both Christmas Eve and Christmas, we would split the shift. My coworker is working from 3-midnight and I am working the rest of the night. Not much is going to be going on. So, I am not really worried about it.
Christmas day we are going to his Parent's house. I usually do really well eating there. Even when I was really overweight, I never ate much because his mom is this tiny thing and I didn't want her to think i was a pig. So, I usually just eat small amounts there anyway.
Well, I think that is all for now
