27 Nov How to Avoid Gaining Weight When you Overeat
The weather has taken a chilly turn here in Florida, which means I’m busting out my boots for the first time this season… for 24 hours. Seriously it was 85 degrees yesterday : ( I’m a big fan of cold weather!! I like fires and being the meat in fluffy blanket burritos. I’m also a huge fan of the holidays. I live for all the cooking and QT with loved ones. I love holiday commercials, too! Isn’t it funny how the mental version of the holidays differs from real life?
If your holiday season is anything like mine, it isn’t 100% effortless, or filled with evergreens, egg nog, and elves. The truth is, we may have to navigate some conflict, like…
• A ton of tempting foods
• Black Friday Blowout Sale Shopping (I personally prefer online shopping to fighting for parking spots and sizes)
• Heated or passive/aggressive conversations and comments as a result of too much alcohol … or not enough!
• Guilt, regret or shame because your holiday didn’t play in person the way you wanted it to in your mind…
No matter what time of year it is, conflict shows up in our life. Rather than pretend this year is going to be different… Instead of shying away from it, or let it take you to the dark side… Why not take some time to learn how you can protect and respect yourself by controlling the only thing you can control… YOU.
Here is a full list of tips, recipes and tools you’ll need to take control and be that girl this holiday season… The one who makes positive changes and does the right thing, no matter what holiday curveballs are thrown at you… You can dodge them Matrix Style: When you commit, when you have a plan and when you set boundaries.
Now, I know practice makes perfect, so just in case you fall… I’ll be there to catch you. In today’s episode of CCtv I share 3 simple tips on how you can bounce back quickly and avoid gaining weight every time you overeat. These are the exact same tips I’ll be using, and do use every time I overeat (or drink.) It works, if you work it!
