You KNOW what binge I mean. The Holiday Binge.
Most of us, be honest, start at Thanksgiving, with all the pies and dressings and varieties of starchy, sugary foods, and eat our way right through Christmas to New Years!
I've done that soooooooooo many times in the past.
Then we see the New Year and we make New Resolutions. How much more ahead of the game would we be if we didn't have to spend months erasing our holiday binge?
I'm inviting you all, encouraging you all, daring you all, to STOP the holiday binge this year, BEFORE it starts.
Of course, you know, the person I'm inviting, encouraging and daring the most, is ME.
Gotta pay attention, stay aware, push away, just say NO.
We'll all be happier come New Years if we do.
I know I will!
Good luck to us all.
PS. Something that helps me, IF I remember to do it, is to THINK about what I'm about to eat. I know what it will taste like and how much fun it will be to eat it, but I have to THINK about how I'll feel AFTER I eat it. Not so good. Stuffed. Bloated. Guilty. Sluggish.
