Over the Christmas holiday I came down with an impressive cold, so I haven't been able to really work out like I normally do. Needless to say, this has made me feel like a blob of cranberry sauce. Adding insult to injury, there have been tons of cookies strewn about my house (thanks, mom), and since I have been unable to taste and therefore derive satisfaction from any single cookie, I ate more than I would have liked. And the cranberry blob increased its mass.
However, on the up side, I can now smell and taste again, and while I am about a 100 calories over my limit (and will probably continue to do so for the rest of the year...not too big of a deal given that's what? four more days?) due to going out a bunch with long unseen friends, all of them have told me that I am looking 'fine' and/or 'tiny' compared to the last time they each respectively saw me. Thinking back in time, I weighed less then than I do now. And that made me happy. Because that means even though I weigh more, I am healthier than before (and I can continue to tell myself that it actually -is- muscle).
