Seriously, I was invited to 3 Thanksgiving dinners on 3 different days, because 2 of them worked on Thanksgiving so they wanted me there either the day before and the day after. I had 5 Christmas parties and 4 dinners to attend to. 2 Hanukkah gatherings, 9 Birthday parties, and 1 Quanza. And finally 2 New Years parties (one last night and one later today).
Keep in mind I wasn't foolish enough to go stuffing my face at all those events. In fact I was very careful not to eat to much (small plates). But they still add up .... god... they add up.
Thankfully my next "party" is not until Jan 23, Feb 27, and March 4
So I'll be fasting and if and when possible, exercising.
