Practice Makes Better...Not Perfect
"Everything in Moderation" Doesn't mean what you think it means.
It bothers me so much when social media sets these expectations of perfection and I cannot live up to them. When fit girls, the weight loss gurus, and personal trainers all show off these great abs and arms I feel jealous. They make food prep and eating healthy sound so simple. But I know they had to work for these bodies and healthy habits. We just never see it.
I am guilty of perpetuating this myth as well. I only post photos of myself when I have make up on or feel fit. I only post photos that have been edited or adjusted to look just right. I show the before & after photos instead of the during photos.
Don't Eat The Sweet Treats
Eat them because you want to. And then ask yourself why you want it.
Checking The Scale...and Other Bad Ideas
For this year, accept the homemade gifts with the intentions they were given and then throw the rest away.
Preparing For The Holidays
I do not recommend looking at the scale during a normal season let alone the Holiday Season. Take the batteries out of the scale and put it in the closet until February, at the earliest.
My plan is to eat very healthy unless it is a holiday. I will do much of my own cooking for the next few months and am not eating out unless it is part of a celebration.
