With ADHD, we are at risk.
I hope you don’t overindulge over the holidays. All you need to do is use your willpower, self-control, and judgment. Assuming you have some. Not all of us do.
My wife makes wonderful cookies. And pies. Our friends and neighbors give us good eats. Oh my. And there’s parties. And even with the virus, I’ll admit we have some booze at home and there still is a lot to celebrate.
If I can’t see it, it doesn’t exist. If I can see it, I’ll eat it. (The first part doesn’t necessarily apply to sweets. If someone hides them I can usually find them.)
1. I tend to over drink at parties, especially if the booze is free. I make a rule before I go: one drink, water, one drink, water. Works pretty well, most of the time.
2. Keep reminding myself that it’s much easier to put weight on than it is to get it off. This strategy rarely has any effect.
NOTICE: There has been a change for this year. The New Year, 2021, does not start until Jan 20. Please make a note of this change.
Jokes O the Day:
One margarita is never enough.
Two margaritas is too many.
Three margaritas is never enough.

I said, “It doesn’t matter how many times you fall. What matters is that you keep getting up.”
He said,“That’s not how a sobriety test works.”
She said, “You’re staggering.”
I said, “You’re pretty cute yourself.”
We laughed and laughed and laughed.
I need bail money.
