Holiday Game plan.

Monday, November 05, 2012

So I joined a new Sparkteam created by FEB_SHOWERS16 aimed at making it through the Holiday's without the usual pound pile-on. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mys

One topic was what is your plan?
I decided to repost my response here.

My plan is to limit. If I deny myself all the treats I will binge out.
I need to try to ignore most of the treats in the office (and it will flood with them) Maybe have a mini cookie now and then or something small so that I don't get obsessed with the feeling of depravation.
On some occasions I may take home a small treat to share with my sister and or BF over the weekend (keeping myself from eating the whole thing)
I will not try to deprive myself on the Actual Holiday's themselves, but try not take it beyond that. It doesn't help when my Mother comes two weeks before Christmas to have a craft and goodies weekend with myself and my sister.
It doesn't help that when I arrive at her house 3 days before Christmas and try to refuse treats she say's "For heavenís sake, a couple of days isn't going to make you gain it all back"
I am quite honestly terrified.
Sorry for the ramble.
So I think, and I need to do this anyway, I also need to step up my workout routine. I have been slightly slacking lately and need to do it anyway, but it seems that I need to be disciplined with the food but also ready to burn calories as it seems that some are inevitable.

    The moral support will help I think!
    I haven't used the food trackers in awhile but if I find myself truly slipping I might re-institute as a method of accountability.

    I'm actually really terrified also. IF I make it through this year without the typical weight gain, it will be a first in my entire life. I'm determined to give it my all!!

    It looks like you have a fabulous plan and I look forward to helping eachother through this. emoticon emoticon
