Tips on Holiday Eating
So many of us think that if we make it through Thanksgiving and Christmas with watching our weight, we’re in the clear. At the first of each year, we’re all ready to hit the ground running and give 110% to our healthier lifestyle. Where in fact, it’s because we’re trying to end the year on a plateau from all the CRAP we’ve ate the entire 11 months before!
Personally I have found that the holidays after the New Year that were always my troublesome times. Give me candy gummy hearts any day before mashed potatoes and stuffing. Chocolate Easter bunnies? Hell yeah I’ll have two of those, paired with my three Cadbury Caramel Eggs! And don’t even get me started on jelly beans. I mean, who can even eat just half a bag?
Plus, then we’re adding on the full meal of a traditional holiday with all the fixings on top of the sugar high. So, how do we keep this in check? Well, I go back to my WW Leader days and tricks:
It’s all about moderation, because you want to fully be present and enjoy the holiday with your loved ones. The food should be an accessory to the day, not the main event. How do you stay on track with your plan during holidays like this?
Have you invested in yourself lately? As in, have you taken the time to sit and read or listen to audio books/webinars/recorded calls that make you think or stretch you outside of your comfort zone? You know the ones, that you want to write in the margins of the book or take extensive notes or even get that “a ha!” moment from? Yep, that’s personal development.
Investing in yourself is so important. Why? Because you deserve it. Don’t you want to live the best life that you possibly can? Don’t you want to be able to give 100% of yourself to others without feeling drained or taken advantage of? Just 10-15 minutes per day of personal development will increase your productivity during the day, plus it will make you feel so good to unwind and take that time for yourself. Do you wonder why successful people always seem happy? Quite honestly, it’s because many of them are. They’ve taken the time to invest in themselves, so that they can turn around and invest in their businesses and constituents. Doesn’t that sound nice?
I’m on a mission, to really focus and invest in ME this April. I’ve been doing a bit of soul searching and in order to be able to give all of me and be fully present, I need to be selfish and take time for myself each day. Meaning, I am going to be fully present in my own life, which turns into being fully present in others’ lives. My personal development is going to focus mainly on me and how to live a purposeful life. I want to put my heart out there and hope others can see how beautiful and ragged and bittersweet and amazing and raw it is. I am ready for this next chapter.
Does this sound like something you need to start focusing on as well, but not sure where to start? Here are a few of my favorite books to get you started:
The Purpose Driven Life– Rick Warren
Jesus Calling- Sarah Young
Awaken the Giant Within- Anthony Robbins
Break Out- Joel Osteen
The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth- John C. Maxwell
PUSH- Chalene Johnson
Try it, you won’t be sorry! Share with me what you do for developing yourself, I’d love to hear!
