December 23, 2011: Egg Nog Cupcakes

Medifast Status: Day 234, Down ~72lbs

I am working today, not taking it off even though I am down in Houston.  I decided, as things have been so insanely slow at the office, to see if I would be able to make it all day without a computer, though, and to work purely from my Blackberry just keeping an eye on the emails.

Francesca made me a batch of egg nog cupcakes.  This is going to be awful for my diet.  The house is completely full of baked goods!  And there are not that many people to be eating the baked goods.  There is way more food than there is people to consume it.

I had to give in and go off of my diet.  There is just no good way around it.  So I’m taking the next few weeks off.  I’m going to try to limit the damage but it is not going to be easy.  Christmas food is some of my favourite so this is really going to be a struggle.  The egg nog cupcakes are especially tough because they are actually soaked in Maker’s Mark bourbon.  Mmmm… delicious.

Today was a very relaxing day.  We had nothings scheduled since originally I was supposed to be driving down from Dallas this evening but instead got the entire day here.  Liesl and Luciana were very excited that I can down.  They really miss me when we are apart – even when they have their cousins with whom to play.

Luciana is really close to crawling now.  She is scooting this way and that and getting up and almost ready to crawl but not quite able to get the coordination down of moving all of her limbs together.  Only a week or two before she is going to be highly mobile.
