A great time to plan.

Friday, November 25, 2011

Well in the USA, the good people of that nation just celebrated Thanks giving day, and together in a months time, we will both along with all the christian world celebrate Christmas.
I have all my adult life wondered where the true meaning of this "festival" as dissapeared to.
Instead, it has become a festival of over indulgence of both food and alcohol.
Both in excess often leads us to regret our "over" intake within a few hours, but it doesn't need to be this way.
Now is a great time to plan, plan and research all the healthier options and to plant these ideas into the minds of the loved ones we will be sharing them with, as not to shock them on the actual day!
Failing to plan is REALLY planning to fail, so please get your thinking caps on!

Have a great Saturday,
Chris.

    For me Christmas is about food and family. I don't tend to go to excess with the food or alcohol these days though but I still love it. Presents are important to me, neither is the materialistic nature of Christmas these days. My girlfriend loves all of that so I leave it to her.
    Have a great Christmas :)

    To your point...we will spend Christmas with kids/ grandkids at my son's house. They are all very supportive of my new lifestyle....it seems they would like to keep me around for a while...lol.

    gerat point, Chris -- I had my Thanksgiving meal planned (went well) and already working on our Xmas Day meal. Everyone around me knows the meal(s) will be on MY plan, and it's all good stuff, that the others will enjoy.

    Easy enough to make a little of the "other" stuff, but no extras to be left over.

    So this Christmas will be on plan!

    SEASON'S GREETINGS TO ALL!
