I am the champion of holiday binge eating, y'all. I finally went to go weigh in for the first time since before Thanksgiving, and I was only up 2.6 pounds. Which was pretty exciting because the fucking scale at the doctor's office told me last week I was up 7. NEVER TRUST THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE SCALE, GUYS.
Anyway, I was pretty psyched. I didn't do nearly as much damage as I thought, despite how shitty I've been eating and how lazy I've been.
Also, I've changed things up slightly with the column this month. Instead of yet more baked goods (which, I'll admit, are my favorite), I'm switching over to something more practical: crockpot recipes. Granted these are pretty damn easy so it's less of a "how to make this" and more an analysis on if the recipe actually turns out any good (or whether it just LOOKS good from the Internet, which was kind of the entire premise behind my column anyway). I mean, really. There's only so many ways to say "chuck it all in the pot and turn it on." Plus! These are going to be healthier. PLUS! It will save me money because I will have multiple meals and not have to eat out. Which is great because I'm still recovering from the holidays. Financially. Because, as we've already established, I somehow managed to skate by relatively unscathed, weight-wise. Though some days it sure as hell doesn't feel like it.
So, this week, we have: cilantro lime chicken. It's quite tasty. You should try it.
I'm going to go back to hibernating now.
