Tis the season to enjoy. It starts with Thanksgiving and the others follow. Hanukkah, Christmas and all the holidays after Thanksgiving to 1 Januauary.
Please don’t allow the calories stop you from enjoying the holidays. What ? Yes I will repeat don’t allow the calories stop your enjoyment. It’s a time to enjoy family, friends and the food. These are memorable and cherish-able times. Although they are repeated year after year and yet each are so different.
Does this mean over indulge umm, well, not completely. But well it does mean you may consume more than normal and thats okay, BECAUSE well just
Raise your hand if you’ve ever ruined the holidays for yourself by stressing about the number of calories you consumed? ✋🏾✋🏼✋🏽
When you start to feel those anxious feelings setting in, I want you to ask yourself…are calories the bad guys here? Or is it my mindset?🧠
Hint…it’s most likely your mindset.
Your brain is telling you that calories are bad and you’ll get “fat” if you eat too many and don’t burn them off.
But I want you to start training yourself to think this way…calories are fuel for your body, and around the holidays, it’s ok to enjoy calories that taste DELICIOUS.
You aren’t going to gain 20 pounds immediately (although sometimes it feels like it), so brush off the stress, enjoy yourself in moderation, and live yo’ life!
