So I've been thinking about the upcoming holidays. I do have a few thoughts, but have not decided on anything concrete yet.
These are just random musings---and I have no idea about how credible some of these ideas are or not... (Please offer your input!)
Stay strong and 100% compliant from now through January 1st.
Try the EODD (the Every Other Day Diet using the Simple Diet)
Day 1: 100% compliant / Day 2: Eat off-plan, but choose smart.
Begin every day expecting to be compliant. Only go off-plan on a few occasions.
Begin each day compliant. Fall off-plan as the day goes on.
What are your thoughts of additional variations?
I don't have any answers. I know that I -want- to follow through on the very 1st choice: 100% compliant. However, I'm not thinking that's going to happen (especially with Thanksgiving at my house, and us traveling for the next 3 days after Thanksgiving, PLUS us meeting back up with all our snowbird friends down in Alabama, and they are NOT following a diet plan and want to go out frequently) It's not looking good for me.
But my next choice is #3: Begin every day expecting to be compliant. I could end up with some very good (on-plan) days!
Remember teammates: We're all in this together!
What are you going to do? Any ideas yet? Or are you as confused as I am?! LOL
One thing that I do know FOR SURE... Let's don't quit this team (or quit posting on this team) if we get discouraged. Let's promise that we'll keep hanging in through the holidays as a team. Yes???
I say yes!
