As we get ready for the holiday season and Thanksgiving in a few weeks, a lot of our social events are surrounded and focused on food. But they do not have to be. I'm wrapping up a Stop Stress Eating workshop that is 21 days long. We focused on many things to NOT make the focus on food, but rather the emotions you are trying to fill. This holiday season, focus on the long term. Thanksgiving is a day. A day that should be focused on family and thankfulness, not the projected 4500 calories each person consumes on average.
My WHY is because I want to have the confidence to feel comfortable in my skin ALWAYS. I want to have great health and NOT be on medications. I want to ALWAYS have the energy to do what I want. When I give into sugar, it starts a downward spiral of out of control eating. So for this Thanksgiving, desserts will not be on my menu. I have accountability partners in place and I have my plan for the whole week in place. If you don't have a plan, you can plan to fail.
Make your bucket lists for short term motivation goals but ALWAYS keep a long term WHY in your sight!
