The last few months of 2012 were pretty much what the Wild Wild West was like if somehow there were lots of flour, glass clinking, and pants that wouldn’t (and still) don’t fit. (Maybe if those wild cowboys drew their cakes instead of their guns, we wouldn’t have a whole movie genre dedicated to the era.)
The overeating belly made its annual appearance right before Thanksgiving and overstayed its welcome until just about a week ago.
I didn’t physically gain weight on the scale, but the buttons and bulges in my pants told me all I needed to know. (PUT DOWN THE CAKE AND REACH FOR SOME CARROTS.)
My diet primarily consists of what any bunny rabbit would eat: dandelion greens, collards, kale, carrots, peppers, onion, mushroom,
chocolate, focaccia, cupcakes, focaccia, pizza, pita chips (okay, maybe not that last part, but seriously, how do those bunnies get so rotund? They must be sneaking some kind of ice cream into the grass or something. I’m convinced.)
Back to normal brain wavelength function…the holidays weren’t even the food devil for me. It was honestly in between that were the issue. Either I wasn’t eating enough (due to sickness) or I was shoveling everything in like it was my last day here on this bountiful earth.
Here are some proud and not so proud food moments from the past few months:
Not so proud:
So…there you have it. I’d say my healthy outweighs the unhealthy for the most part, but we still need to work on curbing the wild carb and chocolate cravings in 2013.
How is your eating going this January? Any new things you are incorporating into your diet?
Peace, love, and staying on track!
