Alas, we are entering the holiday season, with so many opportunities to over-indulge. Wednesday, we had our company Thanksgiving potluck lunch. The company provided ham, turkey, potatoes, stuffing, and gravy, and the employees brought side dishes and deserts. I made my usual contribution to these things: penne pasta in a cream of chicken and white cheddar sauce with mustard, topped with paprika. Easy to make, and I like it. I didn't know whether to be disappointed that half of it was left over or pleased because I could make a couple of lunches from the leftovers.
I tried to restrain myself from over-eating, but I did have a couple of bites of a pumpkin cheesecake, and of course my own pasta dish is carb-heavy. I definitely needed my afternoon walk yesterday, but still had a 145 blood sugar an hour later. Ghod only knows what it would have been had I not hot-footed it up the hill.
When I get a chance -- which won't be for several weeks -- I need to take the box of size 46, 48, 50, and 52 slacks (yes, I've gone down that far) and take them to the nearby thrift store. Pity I can't use the tax write-off (because I don't have enough to justify itemizing deductions).
