Like so many folks who visit SparkPeople, I'm an over-eater. This occurs not only during the holidays, but ESPECIALLY during the holidays. I bake for others and, of course, I have to sample to make sure it tastes right.
I'm trying to have thought out healthy snacks on hand for the moments when I'm craving sweets or simply just more food. One of my snacks is celery sticks with cream cheese & chopped pimiento olives.
I'm also trying to be conscious of drinking a little more water. I visited my PCP this week for a follow up(meds). That went well, but I was also complaining of horribly dry lips - I mean, they looked white! I may not be getting sufficiently hydrated, so I need to drink more plain water.
At this point I feel badly about those out of control moments when I over indulge. The good thing is that I'm aware of them and am developing a coping strategy.
