Ok so it hasn’t been great over the Christmas period, I will start with that. I would add though that it was nowhere near as bad as it could have been and I have most definitely not gorged anywhere near as I have done in previous years.
There was no starter at Christmas dinner, only one pudding (shock horror right) and there’s a quite magnificent stollen covered in cherries and almonds that has lasted nearly the entire Christmas week!
A real indicator of a victory, albeit a small one, was that I didn’t even have a selection box for breakfast when we were opening gifts. That’s a bit of a tradition in our house you see.
Nonetheless it was something and over the last week we have all most definitely eaten a lot less. There remain piles of all manner of things that will likely go unconsumed and I am going to take that and get back to trying even harder.
Once I’ve finished that trifle though because it’s so damned good…
