Last Christmas I thought I could sail through without mishap, but instead, I gained five pounds. I was probably getting lax about mindful eating, especially while we had family here and much traditional baking and relaxed eating.
This Christmas, we are visiting our older son and his family instead of hosting family here, but the same thing could happen if I am not careful.
Since I am currently slightly below my goal weight, I plan to relax and enjoy the holiday, with a focus on:
~Enjoying being with our son, DIL, and three active grandchildren.
~Keep up my daily goal of 10,000 steps and 10 flights of stairs.
~Bring some SP or similar healthful recipes and offer to make them and thus help with the cooking. They are a health conscious bunch and always have lots of fruit and vegetables available, but they kind of expect me to make some old traditional family recipes which although nutritious, are also high in calories/sugar/fat.
~Read my Advent daily devotions to center myself on the Reason for the Season.
