Medifast Day 161 -- Christmas Craziness

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

emoticon My family is driving me nuts with this Christmas Day planning. I mean, how hard is this? I'm making breakfast and we will all open presents. Then at some point in the day I want someone to feed me mashed potatoes covered with green bean casserole. Thanksgiving Part 2. Work is driving me crazy too. I finished my portion of the work of course so now I get to help someone else. Sigh. Sometimes I wish I wasn't so productive. I found the recipe for the Christmas breakfast from I hope mine look as pretty.

The bruise on my shin is getting larger so I've been doing my strength training routine followed by 15-20 minutes of elliptical or cycling.

Even though my body is sober, my mind isn't. Last night I had a dream about getting drunk off champagne at French nightclub. emoticon It was very fun and no hangover today! By my calculations I should be in ketosis right now. You know my weight will go up during next week and there's no shame in that. As long as I get my mashed potatoes on Christmas, no one gets hurt. emoticon

    I have no idea what the menu would be for my family gathering. It was going to be spaghetti and meatballs but I learned recently that my brother and sister-in-law are now catering our family gathering on Christmas Eve.

I have no idea what we will be having Christmas Day. I am thinking I will make my boyfriends favorite dish. I know I am hoping to have a loss or keep my weight steady through the holidays. I want to look pretty and sexy during the holidays, not be down because I got bigger.

Hope you get a good rest, and have fun with your workouts!

    Ugh, I know what you mean! My family keeps asking me what we'll be eating, like that is their whole reason for coming lol. I'm still working on what the menu will be, and hubby does the cooking on Xmas anyway. Plus, we almost always have the same things- tons of veggies and possibly some meat for the carnivores. Family can be so annoying sometimes!

Serenity Now! (that's a Seinfeld quote)

    I just signed into Spark to do a blog about my family christmas craziness too!

Just remember you're not alone and it'll all work out. Breakfast and then mashed potatoes later sounds good.

I like those kind of full body workouts that you can do at home because it's all body weight exercises. There have been times I'll do half of them in my office at work throughout the day! I'm lucky enough to have an office and not a cubicle. If you're in a cubicle that may not work. Or you may just get some funny looks. I do when someone happens to walk by and catch me.

    I know my weight will balloon after Christmas like it did on Thanksgiving. Bitter sweet, but hey, yummy food. I feel like I should have to deny myself on Christmas since it's only once a year, ya know?

I hope your bruise feels better. Sounds like it's an ouchy of one!

Well your dreams sounds better than mine. At least it wasn't a nightmare!

Hope your work slows down and you have a good rest of the day!
