Eating consciously and making Christmas memories

Monday, December 24, 2012

Day 20~

It was a special day of spending time with family. There was nothing but rich food so I took tiny portions and ate slowly. I allowed myself to enjoy some of the rich foods without the guilt.

It's amazing how many calories consumed even though I ate consciously and did not over eat. I used to gorge myself at the holidays and then be miserable. It really pays to think about what you are doing.

I allowed myself a day off from exercise unless I came home early enough to have the energy to work out, but I didn't and that is okay.

We brought home two Swedish Cinnamon Twists that I had made and when I saw them in the container I almost compulsively ate them. I even opened the container, but then I remembered my commitment to health and realized I wasn't hungry, I just wanted to comfort my tired body. I shut it right back up realizing that I also had no desire to consume more simple carbs. I ate one roll for brunch and that was plenty.

I am grateful for the good times today sharing a delicious brunch in honor of my mom's Christmas breakfast tradition, a gift exchange, bingo, games and visiting.
