Holiday season starts... NOW

Last night's dinner was GREAT! My dessert tasted like it was burned but at least one of the ladies really enjoyed. Every day I give up on being a cook. I have to seek patience, without it you can't be a good cook. I don't know if I told you but I really enjoy Oprah. If you read her magazine this month you'll enjoy the 5 myths about Holidays article. I tell you a lot of them apply to me but for this blog we gotta focus on the food.

My holiday celebration started last night. Man! I love the Lord. Now, when you put church and food together... YOU GOT ME! I ate well, I only repent of eating dessert as well. O well... I have another cook out tonight, it will be hamburgers. I shouldn't eat the buns and do myself a favor. Not on Atkins but because of the feast of last night I should take it easy. I'm tempted by the whole wheat buns they have out there. We'll see...

I am trying to make up my mind right now about the holidays. I will stick with protein and veggies this year. I shouldn't have dessert unless my mom sends me some of her goodies or we get pannetone from somewhere. I have to join the joy but ealing like a pig won't make my holiday joyous at all. I plan on having normal means throughout the day as well. If I wait to eat once that day will be harmful to me.

I don't plan on taking my scale with me. That will be too stressful and the last thing I want is to be stressed. I'll let you know how everything goes. Where I come from we just celebrate Christmas and New Years. God bless America because we celebrate one extra holiday here, which is a great way to exercise a fruit of the Spirit: SELF-CONTROL.
