Well, we seem to have made it through another Christmas. My body already feels as it has gone through an “extreme makeover” with all the stomach engorging food and hi-caloric drinking I have partaken in. Sure, I did it on my own accord with reckless abandon, and enjoyed every bite and gulp. Now, we have a week between major holidays, and New Years Eve will bring another evening of engorging. My pants are already getting tighter, and I dread what will happen after the holidays. I don’t make impossible to keep resolutions, but I am going to behave myself this week!
Yet, we have so many leftovers from Christmas sitting in our fridge. Shelves full of food to tempt me, cold beer beckoning me, wine and booze sitting on our bar. Engorging is not an option! Sure, I will eat some of it. I’m not going to torture myself. My fiancee’s aunt is an awesome cook and she packed a bunch of Tupperware full of food for us to take home yesterday. I just need to make sure my fat ass doesn’t eat it all in one sitting. Beer is one of my loves so I am sure I will have a few, or six! I also have to keep in mind that we will be partying on New Year’s Eve and pretty much drinking dinner. Liquid engorging!
The other thing I noticed is that we are already getting bombarded with after Christmas sales ads here in NYC. There are two days I avoid any major shopping – Black Friday and the day after Christmas. Oh, hellz no! I’m sorry, but the sales and saving a few bucks are not worth my time and aggravation to deal with the annoying crowds in the stores, screaming obnoxious kids, and tired rude sales people. Let the “People of Walmart” go out and enjoy that self inflicted torture.
I just read an article that proclaimed retail sales were disappointing this holiday season. Expect even more craziness as retailers desperately try to lure us into their stores to have us spend foolishly on junk we don’t really need in an all out blitz to separate our cash from our wallets. Hey, there might be a few good deals to take advantage of, but I am not going to be engorging on the sales shenanigans today. I’m on vacation this week and will hit the stores later on if I really want to shop for something. Those sales will be going on for a while, even after New Years. For now, I am going to kick back and relax.
Maybe I’ll hit the gym all this week and shock my body back into a workout routine. I damn well know I need to get back on the treadmill. At least engorging on fitness is a much wiser choice. Still, engorging on food and booze does taste better!
