I didn't make too big of a deal about Christmas on here.
I have my reasons. One of which is that I've been so darn busy with the family that coming online to do anything was almost impossible.
Another reason is because I have a problem with the "Holidays". Yes, this time of year is magical and amazing but shouldn't the rest of the year be the same? I try to find one thing in my day (in my week at least) that makes me feel just as magical the rest of the year. This past year has been full of amazement for me. I have a whole blog post of "Wows" ready for New Years so I'll save that rambling for this weekend.
Christmas here at the VM house was nothing short of amazing though. It was simple, sweet, and filled with family, just the way it should be.
I indulged a little bit more than I normally do. I had a bit of sweet potatoes, red potato salad and a tiny slice of my Sister in Laws Famous Apple Cake. With all the carbs I managed to get down I lost 4lbs. Crazy for the Normies with their Normie bellies but for my DS belly awesome stuff! Carbs are normally a no-no for us. Carbs are easy to digest therefore we absorb all those calories and they can have the same effect as it does for anyone else with some added gas. However if you follow your DS diet and indulge a little bit on a rare occasion expect it to shake things up a bit, in more ways than one. Every DSer reacts a bit differently but for me all I had was a tiny bit of extra gas and the loss of a few lbs.
For Christmas we go to my wife's Aunt for Christmas breakfast and than we come home and I have some of my family over for dinner. This year we were able to have my dad, my Sister in Law and her awesome boyfriend, and on Monday we took a trip to my moms to spend some time with my Step Dad, my Mom and my Step Brother. Like I said, simple and full of family.
How were your Holidays?
