People often wonder how to make it through Thanksgiving without pigging out on sweets and quickie carbs and going into sugar shock.
They don't want to wake up having gained weight, feeling fuzzy-headed and moody.
Just think: Wouldn’t it be nice to feel happy and self assured that you didn’t cave into those candied yams, pumpkin pie and mashed potatoes?
So today's Tip of the Week will offer you three simple tactics to put into action at your Thanksgiving meal:
- Imagine What If… Just think about how you’ll feel the day after Thanksgiving if you allowed yourself to have some “treats. Would you feel angry and disappointed at yourself? Would you lose self-respect? Would you feel discouraged that you couldn’t control yourself? My clients say that all of the above emotions would hit them—and hard. So before you put those Thanksgiving “goodies” into your mouth, just “Imagine What If…”
- Let time tell you what to do… When those Thanksgiving treats “call out” to you, let your watch or cell guide you to positive self eating. Learn how easy it is now.
- Remember why you’re celebrating. Finally, before you go for the extra helping, think about the meaning behind Thanksgiving. As we all know, this is a holiday dedicated to gratitude. So what better way to observe it than to be thankful that you have family or friends with whom to celebrate Thanksgiving? Before you go for seconds or thirds, think of 20 things for which you’re grateful.
