I have had such a busy weekend that I haven’t opened my laptop until this very minute. Sigh. It kinda feels good to sit down!
I had a meeting at my company on Saturday with all the truck drivers – did I mention that I work as a dispatcher for a trucking company – and then my company Christmas party followed immediately after. I looked pretty good for a fat girl, if I do say so myself. I guess it’s all relative, but at least when your hair and makeup look good, you don’t feel like a schlump…..until you catch a glimpse of yourself dancing to ‘Love Shack’ in the venue’s full length windows.
Seriously, I looked ok. I did have nice hair, and my makeup was pretty good considering it was me applying it. Next year I hope to look better.
I knew I didn’t have a hope in hell of sticking to my healthy eating plan, so I just ate a small lunch and hoped that all the dancing would burn off the calories. I skipped dessert, more because it was chocolate (I’m allergic) than anything else, and I didn’t eat the cream-sauce covered pasta or the potatoes with the main course.
Of course, I more than made up for how well I did at the not-eating the worst of the bad foods by drinking lots! Seriously. I had many vodka and cranberry juice beverages, just rationalizing away that the cranberry juice was good for me! Right? RIGHT?!
