Fat and Lazy Days!

I remember once a co-worker saying to me "I'm Christmas cookied out" and I thought, WHAT? How can you ever be tired of cookies? But I think I might be nearing the end of my rope with the Christmas sweets. What once tasted divine now gives me a slightly nauseated feeling when I even smell it. Ick. Now, if I had some more Stampede Brownies, made by my wonderful friend Janet, and which I hide every year and don't share with ANYONE, I might be inclined to indulge. Because I never get sick of those. But I'm kind of sick of sugar cookies. And petit fours. And homemade almond roca. It was all delicious a few days ago, but now I'm just FULL. It doesn't help that today Jeff and I did absolutely nothing except lay in bed, read, and eat (oh and watch a movie). I took a shower at least. And we walked the dogs in the snow which is a workout in itself. But this afternoon after a particularly harrowing session of reading and napping, I decided it was now lunchtime (after having Christmas cookies and hot cocoa with Bailey's in it for breakfast!), and prepared a huge tray of leftover food which included chips and homemade salsa, cheese and crackers, grapes, carrots, and shrimp cocktail! And an assortment of dessert items including cheesecake, pecan bars, petit fours and homemade almond roca. And we feasted in bed and watched a movie and grew fatter. After this gluttony, I felt compelled to roll out of bed (not a metaphor) and walk the dogs in the snow. After huffing and puffing the dogs to their off-leash play area and back, I was ready to sit down at the computer and let my butt grow wider. I feel like my stomach is sticking out at a very unflattering angle as I type. And if a human COULD spontaneously combust, I'm sure I would. Diet starts tomorrow? Nah.....I'll wait till vacation is over. But then I'm getting serious. No more junk. Except for Starbucks. And Jeff's chocolate chip cookies. And the occasional cocktail........
