I've Been a Bad, Bad Girl
Despite my naughtiness and total lack of control this past month, even though I indulged in every sort of tasty treat and savory morsel put before me, Santa still deemed me worthy of a visit. However, in addition to lovely Yuletide treasures, he also gifted me with a couple of non-edible goodies to nudge me back in the right direction. *blush* Under my tree I also found a few "reminders" of my intention to be a good girl and lose weight in 2009, a promise I had clearly broken.
A light spanking from Santa, perhaps?
I started reading Living Low-Carb yesterday, mid-feast, gobbling up the tidbits of information along with my sugar cookies. I browsed Low-Carb Recipes between bites of chocolate and sips of wine. Both are interesting and informative, just the inspiration I needed to hop off this gravy train and back on the healthy dining wagon!
So, I'm not waiting for the New Year to start fresh. No holding out until the stroke of midnight or the traditional popping of the cork or making half-hearted resolutions under the influence of a holiday hangover. Today begins a new year of clean, conscious eating. With a pinch of perseverance, a dollop of determination and a hearty slice of self-control I will meet my goals this year and perhaps avoid the wrath of Old St. Nick next year.
