T-2 days and counting. I’m getting nervous, I think. :~) I feel totally underprepared. I have to pick some stuff up at the store tonight, my carpets are being cleaned today, and veggies need to be cut. Thankfully the toddler and I made some pumpkin Spice Bread last night, so that’s out of the way. I just feel like I’m forgetting something BIG.
Anyway, Lorraine recently shot me a question about the holidays so I moved it up in the queue as it would be irrelevant 2 months from now (that’s how backlogged I am again). So I thought why not answer it and also pose the question to you all for this weeks Question of the Week? Two birds, one stone, I love it! Especially because the birds happen to be Turkeys! ;~P (ok, ok bad joke)
Is every holiday getting easier for you. Once you know you survived last year you know this year will be ok. My question is on Thanksgiving do you eat what you want and deal with it the day after or are you mindful and count. I try not to go crazy and anjoy my day without counting.
I treat Thanksgiving like any other event (because they all have food associated with them, don’t they?!?) I do indulge but I also try to watch and balance in my head. Not count points exactly but bargain. For example… If I want pie (and I want pie!) I ease up on the bread during the meal. It’s just makes me feel at least a little accountable.
As for "getting easier". Actually I think they are harder! Beucase I feel like I have more wiggle room! lol The first year on WW I actually lost and I don’t remember counting. I just balanced and bargained with myself. I think that is reall the key.
Just remember it’s one meal! Not an invitation to overeat until New Years day. As long as we keep that in mind, we’ll be fine! :~)
Hope that helps!!
Ok, your turn…
On Thanksgiving do you eat what you want and deal with it the day after or are you mindful and count?
Curious minds wants to know! :~)
