It’s that time of year again…

December 13, 2008

… when tasty treats start appearing out of thin air and on the kitchen table in our breakroom at the office. Working aschristmassweets an architect, and in an office where we share space with several other firms, there are tons of consultants with whom we engage with on a day to day basis. Since most of their business comes through us, they always feel obliged to send us a lot of calories come Christmas time. I noticed for the first time friday that cookies were starting to pile up. Before you know it, we’ll have a few gift sausage and cracker baskets, those big tin popcorn cannisters with three flavors, maybe 5 or 6 things of Danish cookies, and an assortment of homemade cakes/muffins/cookies/whatever. There are so many empty calories just sittin there, that we often can’t handle them all until a week after new years. At least they’re packed with enough preservatives to last that long. This year, I’m following a much stricter diet of fruits, veggies, yogurt, and granola bars. I’m all about getting lots of calories, but why not get some vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants while you’re at it. I will resist this sweet tasting evil-ness this season and start the new year out right.

On a different note, I’m hurting like hell today from the ridiculous chest and shoulder P90x workout on Thursday. Yesterday’s workout was the Plyometrics, and I was at least able to keep up this time since It is more lower body intensive, but it still beat me down. I’m taking Saturday off for some R&R (and a team christmas party!) and will resume with the arm and shoulder workout on sunday. Enjoy the weekend.
