Beating the Holiday Food Fear
Thursday, June 30, 2011
It can be done. I have no fear about this long weekend. I have two barbecues to go to and of course the fair with fireworks. A lot of temptation, a lot of "off my plan" foods. That feeling of "how am I going to say no" to certain food is gone. I know I can have that funnel cake if I want, I'm just choosing not to this weekend. I know I'll be on line buying my sweetie some zeppoles and he'll enjoy them. I need to feel good about myself and that means not eating sugary snacks right now. The barbecues might not have grilled chicken, but I'll make due with what is being offered. It's just a way of eating that I choose for myself. I am going to hang with family and friends and that is what I'm looking forward to. Just think, you can have just about anything at the parties at a later date if you choose, so smile at those chips and dip and think bikini and most of all great health! I just wanted people to know it gets easier. I've been a fitness/nutrition person my whole adult life and trust me there were times I dreaded going out with my friends wondering how I would not have a beer and nachos! You can do it too. No more excuses!
Everyone have a safe and healthy 4th of July weekend.
