- Knock, knock – said „Christmas time“ and before you know it, you won 10 extra pounds.
It’s not my intention to break Christmas spirit, but I think I’m speaking about well known situation here.
It’s not hard to imagine it – the best time of year, family gathered around beautiful Christmas table, Christmas tree lamps are sparkling, children are playing around and opening gifts and you are proud of yourself because you succeeded to finish dinner in time, roast didn’t burn, and all your guests are in good spirit, but when you set on your chair to finally have this desirable meal, you realized that you used wrong machine program because it seems that your pants (or skirt) got accidentally shrink while washing.
December is very dangerous month when it comes to mixing machine washing programs. It tricks you so easily and before you open your eyes you find yourself caught with 5 or 10 additional and unwanted pounds.
Of course, they didn’t find their way to your belly over night, but if you count how many times you’ve tried new crème for cake, or is that salad dressing spicy enough, you’ll realized that you’ve been deceived by sweets and little treats before you even start to enjoy all Christmas culinary festivals.
It seems so hard to stay away from all crème leftovers, but don’t be sorry to throw them away – leftovers make more damage to your body in a long turn, then your remorse after few spoons of spilled ice cream or filling.
I do feel guilty when I must to throw away any kind of food, and my heart is braking because of it, but, unfortunately, I don’t have the opportunity to give this food away. On the other hand – I’m not a trash can! I can’t put in my mouth everything that stays “uneaten” just because world hunger is one of the biggest problems today.
How to stop this enchanted circle? Don’t prepare as much food as you used to prepare it.
You’ll have more time to spend it with your family, and that is what is Christmas all about.
