Willpower!

Nov 25

Think of the last time you overindulged.  How did it make you feel?  Lethargic & drained?  Nauseous?  Guilty?

Every time I have taken WAY more than my fair share, I’m angry at myself and regret every bite of that second helping.  I have a hard time sleeping and for the next few days my stomach just isn’t right.   For today’s Thanksgiving meal, I promise to use willpower…after all, I have worked very hard all week to stay on-track.

  • Have breakfast today
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Go for a power walk or a run while the food is in the oven
  • Chew minty gum
  • Eat the ‘big meal’ slowly…and on a small plate
  • Give yourself credit when you resist the cheese plate: opt for veggies instead
  • Stay focused on your goal:  today is just another day, right?

By practicing a little self control, you’ll avoid the dreaded weight-gain and set yourself up for success during the entire holiday season.  You have the power of restraint.  Find it in you.
