Zen habits posted a great blog post today on Mindful Eating during the holidays and I thought I would share it with you all. Click here for the full article.
I think it is important that even if you are trying to lose weight right now, do not, and I repeat, do not, beat yourself up for enjoying yourself this holiday season. Christmas is one, maybe 2 days of less healthy choices, it is not going to define the eating habits for the rest of your life.
Yes, you should probably try and load of on the healthy stuff like salad, and when eating appy's go for the raw veggies, but you also need to live life, and sometimes that means eating a full slice of eggnog cheesecake (Holy, yum.) to yourself, or eating 5 pot of gold chocolates. Now, if you have these items on hand ALL the time, maybe don't eat that much, but if they are something special, treat them that way. Enjoy them. Savor them.
Have a happy holiday,
P.S. Half Marathon Round 2 training starts in t-8days. But who's counting?!
