I'm watching the Christmas Strictly special and waiting for an extremely-imminent chicken and stuffing sandwich to appear for tea. I'm relaxed, happy and enjoying the day, which is full of new traditions for me and my dad.
It being a Friday, it was my weigh in day for Weightwatchers this morning. I didn't weight in last week, due to being in the Alps skiing and all (shaaaaaame, I know) so this was judgement day for a week of chalet board and booze on top, as well as the usual pre-festive buildup. Ordinarily, my friends and I joke that we put on about half a stone for every ski holiday week we do. You can see why - multi-course breakfasts, hot lunches, afternoon tea and cake (and beers in the hot tub), 3 course dinner with limitless wine and usually drinks in the evening. Ummmm, yeah.
Damage report: a mere 2lbs.
I'm feeling pretty damn chuffed about that, since I also had Chinese takeaway for dinner last night!
So here's to Christmas! I hope it finds you well, wherever you are and whoever or however you spend this day. I hope you're with friends, family or loved ones, got some nice presents, but more importantly appreciate those that make you happy.
