𝓽𝓲𝓬𝓴…𝕥𝕚𝕔𝕜…𝓽𝓲𝓬𝓴…𝕥𝕚𝕔𝕜…the holidays are coming🤸‍♀️🤸‍♂️🤸‍♀️🤸‍♂️

The sparkly chaser lights, the kids shaking/breaking all the presents, the beautiful cookies, the sentimental ornaments, the colorful cookies, the parties, the baby’s first Christmas, the cookies, Aunt Mary’s Beans, Grandma the Greats Pecan Pie…oh myyyyy …all…that…FOOD!!

 

 

Don’t let all the wonderful food this holiday derail your “good intentions”!

 

Pay attention to serving size

You have heard it before because it works, use the small plate or if you can’t, fill it up with lots of veggies.

Take small spoonfuls of all the things that you want. Give yourself permission to go back for one more on only one or two of the foods you enjoyed. You will be surprised to find that once you take a taste that is enough. This goes along with the dessert table, and works for a buffet-style meal also.

 

 

Don’t stand by the food table

Fill your plate then step away to eat.
Eat only what is on your plate. (don’t be George Costanza and double dip)

*Do you have a food that you just can not stop once you start?  Tell yourself,

“This will always be available to me, this is not the last time I will be able to eat ________ “

 

 

Step on the scale before you leave for the party

Research has shown that women who step on the scale every day and then act accordingly, are 82% less likely to regain lost weight than those who don’t weigh in as often.

 

 

Pop a sugar-free mint in your mouth when you are finished eating.

 

 

mmmmmAlcohol

The rule…one water for one alcoholic drink.

 

mmmmmmGravy

Chances are your Holiday Chef has probably mastered the art of cooking the protein. I am quite sure you could do without the added calories from the gravy. Save it for the mashers or try mixing the corn with mashers and use just a little gravy.

 

 

Eggnog

Fill your cup with 1/2 skim milk then add the nog

 

Try to make the Holiday gatherings about the gathering and less about the food.

Go out to the driveway and play catch or basketball, or kickball.

Play a card game or board game.  If you are able have a good ol’ fashioned snowball fight or build a snowman..

This is what the holidays are about and what beautiful memories are made of!

 

 

Do you have a great idea that you think others could benefit from over the holidays?

 

JESSICA ALLION

I reached 200 pounds after having my children and several things have led me down my path of wanting to be healthier and better for myself and for my family; countless fitness dvds, a gym membership, leading a weight management class at my church and a personal trainer telling me I had good symmetry.  I have learned many things on my fitness journey, but the one thing that I hear over and over no matter what size they are, is the self-talk that many women tell themselves regarding the way they see themselves. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have the tools and wisdom of the people around me to help women of all shapes and dynamics to help them on their journey.
