Christmas, or GainsMas as most of us know it as, has just passed. Most of us spent the last week hearing the holiday treats and snacks calling our name.

Sugar cookies, truffles, chocolates, and candy canes waited patiently at your family's house for your arrival. Your mom even baked gingerbread men cookies into a double bicep flex shape because you know you can't say no... if Mr. Gingerbread is straight flexing.
