But last year I decided to break this tradition. I did make a few things, and gave them as gifts to Robocop, my dad, and a couple of friends, but I didn't go all out. This year I have pretty much decided I wont do it at all. Mr. Banker isn't a fan of sweets and now that my mom has diabetes I feel guilty bringing anything like that home to them.
BUT... here's my problem. I'm trying really hard to give up coffee, but it's a Monday morning and I NEEDED it. So at 9am, I finally gave in to my inner caffeine fiend and went to the break room to get my cup of Joe. On the table was the most beautiful spread of chocolate chip cookies I've ever seen. So yeah, it's not even 10am and I've had a cookie. Good going Hollee. The same problem occurred Friday. Chocolate peppermint bark and an assortment of cookies were awaiting my arrival Friday morning, and I started early. The good news is, my scale is holding steady. The bad news is, my scale is holding steady haha. I am trying to lose, not maintain! Although all the shit I'm eating I feel like I should be gaining.
I guess my Lap Band is my saving grace, because I can only imagine the amounts of crap I would've devoured by now without it. I just need to make it through the next 2 weeks and the junk-food season will be over. 2014 can't get here soon enough!
P.S. I know this meme is horrible, but it made me giggle out loud at work. Sorry!
