What did you learn at Thanksgiving that you want to take with you into Christmas or Hanukkah ?
I indulged in one thing ... and counted it in my tracker, I'd left room for it. It was Chex Party Mix. Honestly, it tasted better going down than it did after it got there! I wish I hadn't eaten it. My body isn't used to foods like that any more and really doesn't care for them. Lesson learned! I won't forget!! What's yours?

I've learned to look at today and make better choices for tomorrow. If I don't get it done today, I can always do it tomorrow, instead ot stressing myself by trying to get it all done on this day. Sometimes, you'll learn that it may not be as important or needed to get down at all! There's tomorrow
We all want that perfect figure, but beating ourself up is no help. Try to lighten up a little. I take my new lifestyle very seriously but if I have something I shouldn't I just try to overcome it, move on and try to make better choices the next time.
The idea is learn from our mistakes and learn to make healthy choices we can live with not to feel deprived and hungry.
.. just do it NOW! Don´t wait for that Monday or "perfect" time after that specific party. Now is the time! Go out to the kitchen and clear out all bad foods right away and instead of sitting here right now, just put your trainers on and take a walk, no matter how short!
You´ve got to learn to eat wisely during parties and weekends anyway, so you might as well just learn right away!
