Cheese is a treat... Cheese is a treat... Cheese is not a way of life. Okay, I needed to get that off my chest.
As much as I thought I had prepared for the "holidays", I realized last night, no way did I prepare. I have been slightly less than motivated to exercise or eat 'the program' since getting back from my Thanksgiving trip to visit family. I went to a wine tasting last night and ate more than I had told myself to before hand (and yes, I did eat a healthy snack before I left). I have been craving Christmas cookies and have plans to do some baking). I have several parties to attend. I also have several Birthdays to celebrate this month. It is finally hitting me just how unprepared I am for the constant onslaught of temptation.
I am now going to put this in words and hold myself accountable: I WILL exercise EVERYDAY in the morning! I will reward myself for good behavior by sticking to the food program and allowing extras only after I have worked them into the plan. I will eat a mix of 5 fruits and veggies everyday--or, NO "extras". I will love myself more than food. I will vent on here before I eat that chocolate bar. I will treat myself to non-food special stuff (like a pedicure or a massage) when I have been super good. Again, I will love myself more than food!
