Don't wait til Jan 1- DO IT NOW!

Friday, December 13, 2013

January 1 does not offer a magical jumpstart for anything we REALLY want.

It comes right down to what we want.

Do we want to reach our goals or do we want another discouraging setback?

Is another bite of that tasty morsel of (insert food of choice here) really worth it?

What's more important?

Don't get me wrong, staying on plan does not have to ruin the holidays.

Just be honest and pay attention.

Watch the portion sizes.

Choose the lighter, healthier menu options.

If the choice is made to over-indulge, don't beat yourself up.
Get over it and get back on plan.

Drink more water.

MOVE IT!!! Then MOVE it some more.

Take care of yourself.

Let's be proud of ourselves and be right where we want to be when the new year rings in.

    Yup! And eating the better food really DOES make us feel better, so tasty doesn't equal better!! After awhile, the current Tasty isn't so tasty as our body begins to crave what it needs.

    I love that picture. I stopped starting on January first a few years ago. I was not a magical day that produced results and I didn't like being part of the cast of thousands that made that new years resolution

Spring is less than a hundred days away! Gotta keep myself in gear now!

Thanks for the reminder!

    Excellent message, especially for this time of year. In a former life, between my ex's family and mine, it wasn't uncommon to be expected to show up for something like 40 meals and half a dozen or more parties between Thanksgiving and New Years, mostly potluck style where every woman within a hundred miles has brought her most fabulous signature dish and set it on tables laden to the point of collapse. Halloween pretty much marked the end of weight-control season back then, but there's no reason why that has to be so.

I *LOVE* that cartoon!
