And it is hard! Once I start eating sweets, then it is a slippery slope. Last night we went to an International Food Festival. I tried to pace myself all day. It was a day full of temptation! After a small lunch, I only had small bite size portions of food at the after school Baby Shower. The carrot cake looked so good, but I resisted! At dinner, I tried small portions of a lot of exotic dishes. I felt OK about my food intake.
This morning I started right by running outside for 30 minutes. Now I am off for a morning coffee and croissant with my husband. The holidays are tough to keep on track, but I am trying! What works for you???
Trying is definitely the key to success. Once I say I've blown it and give up I find 15 extra pounds on my body in a couple weeks. As long as I do the best I can at each event and with each challenge I can keep on going. In between events I eat as healthy as I can: high fiber, low fat protein, plenty of freggies, nonfat milk, and drink plenty of water. I'm half a pound over my maintenance range as of this morning, but by next week I'm gonna be there, holiday or no holiday!! 1955 days ago
I thought I was doing pretty good but today I overindulged in low-cal/Low-fat treats. If you eat enough of them, they break your diet! I'll try to do better tomorrow! I have been trying to track better and to get in a lot of exercise. 1956 days ago
