Help, I am losing my battle against holiday treats. Yesterday, I ate nearly an entire loaf of pumpkin chocolate chip bread.
Problem #1: In my mind, there’s no point to life unless you can have treats sometimes.
Problem # 2: If you’re going to have some treats, as my son would say, “How much is some?” It’s easier if you’re saying no to all treats. Then you don’t have to decide which treats are worth it or which are okay or when you should stop.
Problem #3: People are hand delivering the treats to my door. Homemade, warm, yummy, calling my name.
Problem #4: I can’t deny my kids treats so I’ve got treats in the house.
Problem #5: My family tradition/culture says holidays are more fun with yummy treats.
Problem #6: I’m making treats. So I have to try them to make sure they are okay right?
I can find a million ways to rationalize, but the fact is, I don’t want an enormous butt come January. We’ll see how I do, but I promise I won’t post pictures.
