Today is day 10 of my streak!

Just a quick blog today to remind everyone that as of today (October 25) there are 67 days until New Years Day!

This time of year can really make it hard for us to stay on track. Starting in September, the grocery store aisles are loaded up with Halloween candy. From then on, its just endless temptation. We see commercials for all sorts of tempting foods, and coming soon there will be Thanksgiving dinners and holiday parties. Its hard to not give in to those "treats."

But we can be strong! It difficult, but not impossible, to stay on track during the holiday season. I have started a challenge to myself, to make as much progress as possible by New Years Day. I know that I will have to work hard and be strong, but I also know that I am worth the effort. I don't expect to be perfect, but thanks to the support of my Spark friends who have joined me on this challenge, I will do my best! And on New Years Day, I will have gotten a head start on a healthy new year!

    Absolutely!!! There are SO many wonderful healthy TURKEY choices you can make as great options after the holidays....I usually fill my freezer with individual portions that we enjoy until the next holiday...this way we can FEAST in healthy control!!!

I always buy a Halloween snack I enjoy such as sweet chili doritos in the snack size...that way again the leftovers from the trick or treaters can be controlled in sensible portions.

I find I eat in moderation so nothing is outside the realm of possibility...particularly if the activity level increases...that's what is working for me in my maintenance mode.

    Thanks Pixie, I'm trying to pick myself up and go again. I've fallen a bit far off the wagon and needed your encouraging post. I will not receive an e-mail when you post again.

    Pixie,

I wish I would have read this yesterday, when the Halloween candy taunted me and I succumbed to it. I love the pictures you use in your blogs. I'm adding your blog to my reading list. You are very inspirational!

    emoticon That's a great reminder. I am so much more important than a fun size candy bar (or whatever the temptation is at the time).
