The morning after the day before

Christmas is a hell of a time to be watching what you eat. I hope you have all had a fabulous time with family and friends and there was no need to open those buttons!

Soooooooo, I decided to allow myself 1 day off to enjoy the festivities without having to worry too much about what I ate. I definitely did not want to be the party pooper! 😊

A Jamaican breakfast was my contribution to the day of eating. The national dish (ackee & saltfish) was being tried for the first time by some but not all. All plates were cleaned and I had a blast eating away! Yummmmmmm (I am still licking my lips).

Ackee & Saltfish with fried dumplings and avocado

As breakfast was more of a early afternoon affair, I did not overdo it too much for dinner. I was still full!  It made it so much easier to say no to cakes and puddings.

Okay, so one of the many drawbacks of this holiday season is the need everyone feel to give chocolate. I now have waaaaaaaay too many in my house. Just look at this size of that Lindor Chocolate!  HELP ME…….. Please!!

They are now stashed in a cupboard to be ignored for a while. I still have a way to go yet to reach my final target so chocolate is totally off the table. My challenge?  I will see if they last until I have lost all the weight.

Overall, the day was a lot of fun with some fascinating and great gifts. Thought I would mention that my final prezzie from my ‘not so’ secret santa was MDWAP! I am now reading away and killing myself laughing. 😂😂

Honestly, if you have not yet listened to the podcasts please do!!

I am now off to eat my dinner and I am being a good girl. Today is boring old steak and salad!

Then it is off to bed as I am feeling a bit under the weather today. Lack of sleep over the last couple of days and coming down with a cold is not helping. 😭

Well goodly people, here’s to bringing in the 2017 healthy and happy.
