December 8th, 2014 No Comments Tags: , , , , ,

So have you started into the pity pudding, the nuts, the cakes, the cookies, the martinis and more? Time to get your head on straight and do a “yoooo hoooo” so you don’t end up with a big “booooo hoo”. You know me, all foods can fit. Oh ye Christmas does only come around for thee, once a year. You; however,  wouldn’t want to ruin all of your stealth eating efforts by the time the clock strikes 12 come New Year’s. Don’t you think?

There simply are some foods this time of year I am truly going to enjoy. The notion of “all foods fit” doesn’t mean you have everything in sight for the duration though. Decide what’s part of your Christmas eating season and make plans to enjoy them in moderation. Here are a few do’s and don’ts to consider as you plan ahead:

  • DO plan to wear a smashing outfit to your parties, without an elasticized waistband to nudge you with a “whoa horsey” slow down mechanism.
  • DON’T tell yourself you can’t eat your favourite foods, cause you’re just gonna give in and binge so much more.
  • DO have a snack before you go to your parties, to help curb your appetite.
  • DON’T start drinking those bottomless glasses of wine, that seems like 1 that’s really 5 as your host tops them up.
  • DO keep track of your bevy’s and plan to enjoy a few then graduate to the bubbly stuff, mineral water with lime.
  • DON’T try to make your hostess overjoyed by overdoing it. You’ll be paying in spades if you do.
  • DO get a handle on the menu ahead of time so you can plan your indulgences according.
  • DON’T skip, skip, skip your exercise cause that gald dang energy equation will bite you in your butt if you do.
  • DO enjoy yourself and your family with the season turning your focus to them and away from food. Isn’t that what the holidays are really all about and not stuffing your face?

So before you get knee deep in the Christmas cookie clamour, give yourself a loud “yoooo hoooo” cause you’ll be happy once you doooooooo!!
