Carbs are a gateway drug!

For the better part of my adult life, my diet has consisted of rice, bread, pasta and cheese. If it (or a majority of its ingredients) didn’t come from a can or a box, I likely didn’t eat it. Vegetables didn’t exist in my diet unless they were cooked as part of a casserole, and only then if I couldn’t see/taste/identify them. I was not the pillar of health.

Despite my ignoramus level stupid eating habits, my blood pressure, cholesterol, etc were fine. It seemed that aside from being about 100 pounds overweight, I was healthy (and as big as) a horse. That all changed 3 weeks ago.

Then romantic. Then annoying. :/

Then I had to mentally shake myself and say…

Alright, the gifts are purchased, wrapped, presented, and unwrapped. The last people have left the last shindig, and the kids are finally asleep in bed. Phew! I know your first instinct is to turn into a TV or computer zombie and let the peace of the END of the Holidays wash over you before the New Year celebrations kick in – but I think that there is one more little ‘party’ you need to attend.
