It’s New Year’s Eve and like Alicia Keys, this girl is on fi-ya. Luckily the hot flashes don’t last long. I know — you were hoping for something more glamorous, but I’m lame at New Year’s Eve celebrations. Since mid-life, fuzzy footies, a warm blanket and the television remote have replaced high heels, dancing, and sparkling beverages in my New Year’s tradition. My idea of partying looks more like “Fat Tuesday”. I snarf up prime rib or lobster or steak and as much of the leftover Christmas cookie and candy stash as I can.
My motivation? Umm — to lessen the caloric temptations for the world in the following year. It’s a sacrifice, but someone’s gotta do it. Also, by making my January 1st weigh-in high, the weigh scale numbers have nowhere to go but down. This raises the bar for weight loss potential. It’s a win-win!
And, we go to bed early, so sugar plums can dance in our heads one last time before the stuffy New Year’s resolutions kick them out.
Fan your “on fi-ya” self and have a cookie or three this New Year’s Eve! Consider it your end-of-the-year moral obligation.
