You set your intentions to “be good” on Thanksgiving. Maybe just one serving of mashed potatoes and one piece of pumpkin pie. Ok maybe two. And before you know it, the tryptophan kicks in and all you want to do is sleep. You wake up in the morning feeling bloated and groggy and that’s before you look at the hundreds of Black Friday emails in your inbox.
Thanksgiving is one day. One day. It doesn’t have to ruin your plan. Where people get “in trouble” is that Thanksgiving extends into holiday parties, neighborhood gatherings (socially distanced of course!) Christmas, New Year’s and before you know it, it’s mid-January and they’ve completely thrown caution to the wind and their plan went with it.
Now is the time to get yourself organized so that you can navigate the holidays with confidence. You feel empowered to set boundaries that you know you can operate within and you plan your meals so they align with your goals. Or maybe you had a strong start and are starting to stray. Let’s get you back on track now. We all know that 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail. So get a head start on your friends by doing something different this year. Put yourself first, change your relationship with food and get a 5 lb head start on them by starting now.
Awaken yourself from your food coma by taking the initiative to invest in yourself. Your health. Your happiness. Your joy. The only time we are guaranteed is today and what better place to start than from ground zero, aka the tryptophan holiday hangover. Be well friends, as always I’m here to help get you to your goals.
