Am I the only one who feels like they are being punished during the holiday season? Holidays are hard enough to get through with all the family stressers and drama, add the fact that I am trying to get healthy and can't eat all the goodies that I love are pushing me over the cliff. I LOVE to eat...plain and simple. I really love to eat during the holiday season. So what is happening is I'm blowing. All these months of hard work and doing the right thing are just non existent right now. Here is my plan. For the next few weeks I am going to stick strickly to my meal plan but on the weekends will allow myself to do the holiday thing. I will also make sure that I keep doing my walks (will be easy since I have dogs to walk) and hopefully I'll get past these next 2 holidays with minimal damage. I've had people tell me to make the low cal. version of this and that, it's still as godd...blah blah blah. NO, NO it's not as good. Eat nuts it'll fill you up, um, maybe but I'll still want my mashed potatoes and punkin pie. And the cheese platters just call my name. I am just being honest with myself here. I want the holiday punch, I want the brownies my little nephew worked so hard to make. So here it is, straight out....my eating is going to suck the next 2 months on the weekends, although I will keep to my exercise regimine. I wish you all luck during this time, I know I'll need it.
