You aim to eat right and exercise most of the time, but we all stray from our healthy path every once in a while . . . and it’s a good thing. With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up, and all those yummy family feasts, you can be sure that more people will be indulging that not this week….
Allowing yourself indulgences as an exception, rather than the rule, will make you happier in the long run and make you more apt to stick to your diet. So go ahead, and enjoy that pie!!
In fact, as an indulgence to ourselves….this week’s Tiny Steps Tuesday post is going to be very short! Here are your action steps :
- Skip the Workout. Enjoy family time. Play some cards, read a book, take a walk together. Let your body relax.
- Laugh. Recount old family memories, snicker at Uncle Joe’s new toupee, or watch a funny movie. Laughter feeds the soul.
- Eat leftovers. There’s going to be plenty, and you won’t have to cook. This is a good time to teach the kids to load the dishwasher, too!
- Pop Open the Wine. Did you know that moderate alcohol use can reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes? Have a glass. Have two. Don’t go overboard. You don’t want to be the subject of next year’s family memories….
