Way Too Many Sweets and Treats

My stomach is squirming

My tummy is churning

The monster is stirring

Too many seasonal sweets

Overdosed on Christmas treats

Varied yummy aromas and eats

Gone overboard with my free diet

Rich foods and drinks ask me to try it

Come January, I’m gonna buy it

’cause my body will feel like it’s cursed

A plant-based diet starting January First

Pretty sure the first week will be the worst

I’m making up now for what I will miss

In those 31 days of healthy living bliss

Getting off sugar will def cause me to hiss

I need to cut back on the sweets right now

Gotta get the treats outta my house and how

I don’t want to be as big as a cow

So this is my last weekend of junk (mostly?)

Putting a little too much in that trunk (Fo REAL)

I’m already a bit of a chunk (LOL!)

Looking forward though to eating green

Gonna be a clean, mean eating machine

Get to my size goal, stronger and lean

Can’t believe it’s only 9 days away

Time to stop eating the junk food buffet

Excited to get this underway
