Chocolate, not cheese. Otherwise, yes.


Good_Nyborg t1_j26kk3n wrote

Yeah, been whittling down 8 lbs. of ham since Xmas dinner. The mashed potatoes were the first to go, followed by the yams, then the remains of the green bean casserole. Yet still the ham remains.

Leftover ham makes killer jambalaya.

There's a 20 mile trail of bodies behind my leftover holiday ham jambalaya!

Keep with the ham and go keto, its your best choice I say

Why not chocolate cheesecake?


MissPayne88 t1_j28uh5g wrote

I hate cheesecake so much I wrote a poem About it as a child. All I remember is the last line Cheesecake makes me sad at parties.


Zenketski_2 t1_j27abew wrote

Between the chocolate cookies and cheese I ate this holiday season, I feel like I should be a hundred pounds heavier than I am right now.

My aunt brought three different homemade cheese based appetizers to our Christmas dinner

We didn’t have a ham, a ‘friend’ just bought round some ham, that’s a low trick to get rid of it

I'm working 72 hrs this week, I literally wake and can't tell for a few seconds if I'm at home or dozed off at work.


actias_selene t1_j25wpvu wrote

Same, I kind of hate the end of the week and December because the work is always of the roof. Still happy some enjoy it though.


Kill_Frosty t1_j262air wrote

That’s pretty fucked up. Can’t imagine working those hours nevermind during the holidays.


Obnoxiousdonkey t1_j26bebn wrote

lots of people dont have family, dont celebrate christmas, or choose to work it because they get paid a lot. My uncle volunteers to work christmas and thanksgiving because his company pays double time up to 4 hours, and triple time anything over that. If i made anything close to that, you best believe im loading it up that week.


Kill_Frosty t1_j26c22r wrote

Understandable. If you have a family though I can’t imagine doing that. You only get so many together


TheERASAccount t1_j26e3pj wrote

Resident physician with a family, work “80 hours” almost every week…worked both Christmas and thanksgiving. Thankfully my kids are little so we told them Santa came early this year and did it on my post-call day.


puddlejumpers t1_j26w3bs wrote

Damn, as a physician, you're probably salary? Me, I'm all about that OT PLUS holiday pay.


chief_mdp53 t1_j27qawu wrote

Resident physician means still in training after med school. They get paid $45-60k/year for on avg 60-80hr work weeks for 3-5 years depending on specialty. So yeah perk it’s a salary. Break it down and it’s like $12-15/hr for someone who likely has a $250k+ student loan debt plus other expenses who is grossly underpaid and overworked and has to deal with life or death decisions all the time and be on top of their game while working a maximum 28hr shift per ACGME guidelines so they don’t burn out too quickly. 80hr limitations occurred because it was common for resident physicians to work 120hrs or more. Deadly mistakes were made in the past so they clamped down on it a bit, but 80-90hrs a week is very common even to this day. Hence they are called “residents” of the hospital and practically lived there.

Once you graduate, salary jumps dramatically but residents are exploited for cheap labor within our healthcare system and just wanted to point this out. Media and Reddit makes physicians out to look like fat cats who are lazy greedy money grubbing assholes who doing nothing but get paid big bucks by big pharma, but the reality is they sacrifice so much of their early years to the field of medicine that many the slightly higher salary doesn’t come close to justify the years of sacrifice they endured which is why physicians commit suicide at a higher rate vs general population (same with dentists).

The holidays? You mean last weekend and this weekend?

I haven’t worked for 2 weeks lol. Most people I know take at least the week

Brother you're making me pine for the days of yore. Maybe I'll do that next year.

Im not working at all this week and its been a daze of laying in bed sleeping and watching Netflix. I was literally just wondering what day it is.

Shits awesome


Somnif t1_j26m128 wrote

I've been AT work all week, but have accomplished nothing. I'm the only one in town so I volunteered to be on hand to sign for packages. But the UPS guy has seen the empty parking lot and assumed we were closed, so just done the "attempted delivery" thing every day.

So... yeah. Very boring.


TheCrypticLegacy t1_j25sfgj wrote

I am going to be about a stone lighter come January. Been so ill this Christmas I have barely eaten. There is so much good food sat around in the house that once I am able to eat again I might just gain about 4 stone.


Cheese_Pancakes t1_j26tuvo wrote

My favorite work week of the year is between Christmas and New Years. The whole building turns into a ghost town and I can just work at my own pace and get some much needed peace and quiet.

A little sad that this week is almost over and will have to go back to random, pointless forced conversations with coworkers about the weather, the quote they got on their new roof, or whatever the hell else nobody cares to talk about.

ArtVandalay47 t1_j27u9bd wrote

I've been dieting since july. I lose around 10lbs a month.

I was dreading the holidays. I lost 50lbs in 5 months.

I fell off the diet wagon 2 weeks ago.. In that time I have gained back 15lbs.

A months and a half work gone in only 2 weeks.

No worries though. I'm jumping back on the wagon this sunday.

What's amazing is how much I already feel like shit by not dieting and exercising. I'm already looking forward to getting back to it.

For those out there. Don't let the holidays ruin you. We can do this together. And we'll all shine on this summer!

Good luck and god bless.
