FROM THE SPARK PEOPLE DECEMBER CALENDAR -
"Start a new tradition . Focus on FUN activities, not FOOD.
Take a walk to see the neighborhood decorations. Sing some holiday carols, see a play or VOLUNTEER to help those in need."

Give back - too often we focus on ourselves, but the holidays provide ample opportunities to give back. Whether you donate your money or your time, DON'T FORGET ABOUT THOSE IN NEED.. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Curl up with a cup of tea and watch the rain. It is going to be around for a while so we can get used to it.
Don't forget it will soon be winter.

And a reminder - from SP'S DECEMBER CALENDAR
Don't shop on an empty stomach. It can lead to overeating on the unhealthy food court fare. Also stash some emergency healthy snacks in your car or purse. Try nuts, whole grain crackers and dried fruits. emoticon emoticon

I think the key word is busy.....Take time to breathe, think, exercise even if you have to scale down. It's important for me to stay with the nutrition tracker, it helps decide if I really want something to eat or not. I love to listen to music and look at the christmas tree.. emoticon

Spend a few minutes each day taking care of yourself. Take time to rest.
Eat good food and drink your water. Then do yourself a gift of pampering.

Do it for yourself. Do it for your hubby and children. Enjoy the long cold evenings with a relaxing stop. . . amdist all the stuff you need to get done for years end.

Do something special : a bubble bath to relax, sit with a cup of something warm
or enjoy a few minutes reading your favorite book.

You deserve it, YOU CAN DO IT.

SMASHY1- another great thought! I have a problem with not thinking before I eat, so reading this today was needed (especially before I go eat dinner).

MOTIVATION FOR TODAY - FROM SPARK PEOPLE MOTIVATIONAL CALENDAR ----- Good for the holiday season.............

Think before you BITE.
Before you try EVERY irresistible food that croses your path, think FIRST.
How will you feel after you eat them? Is the taste really worth it?
Could you ENJOY just a small amount INSTEAD???? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

ASPENHUGGER- Sorry that you weren't able to make it to the November meet-up, but there will be others this coming year. You hit it on the head when you said 'Way too Busy & WAY too Much Food" (and I don't keep Christmas, LOL!!!

Decide which ones are really worth

I missed the meetup too -- just too busy on that day also. Yes, we are now into the annual "Way Too Busy & WAY Too Much Food" season! I like the idea of identifying trouble spots, & planning how to avoid them.

How was the meet up on Tuesday? I wanted to come but had a meeting on the Northwest side of Roseville. It just would not have worked. I hate driving the freeways at night.
Sooo busy.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse
