I did fairly well over Christmas despite having to clean and cook dinner for 27. Whew what a job I stuck pretty good to my overall calorie count. I did eat quite a bit of junk just not as much of it. Anyway the allergies got me anyway either the wheat or gluten hidden in so many items pushed me over the edge so I spent all Christmas day with stomach discomfort and itchy itchy skin. Man you would think that after a few rounds of feeling miserable it would be enough to keep me away from the foods that are making me feel bad. I wish it were as easy as eat and feel sick right away. No I have a lag of 24 to 48 hours so my brain never gets the cause and effect. It is slowly starting to sink in though as I was very uncomfortable scratching like crazy for more than a day. I suppose it will get easier to stick to plan every time I mess up like that as I don't want to feel so bad. Went riding yesterday for about 3 hours about 10 miles total so I was feeling much better.
