Twas the month AFTER Christmas


Wednesday, January 19, 2011

I'd remember the marvellous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."

As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt...
I said to myself, as I only can,
"You can't spend a winter, disguised as a man!"

So, away with the last of the sour cream dip..
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip.
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished

I won't have a cookie, not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie. I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.

I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore...
But isn't that what January is for?

  Pretty depressing actually, although I'm sure that is not what you were going for. It is all about moderation and finding things that are good and good for you. Good luck on your journey.
