So, Chistmas is over and there are five more days in this year.
I did not do well sticking to my plan in the past days and this makes me realize that making a truly good plan for the holidays and working on motivation is very important.
We just had too many 'treats' in the house and I felt unable to handle them.
I may also need to think twice about planning two days with 'difficult' family members in a row in the holiday season. I may not be able to avoid that but I do need to then also come up with a plan to protect myself and create some 'buffer time' so I can recover!
So now I am going back to not eating sugary foods.
That means not eating products like chocolate, ice cream, cookies, cake and such in the house. Thankfully my husband has agreed to not keep them in the house and not buying them. He can eat them at work or outside of the house. Me, I will also say no to sugary foods outside of the house.
Given how very sensitive I am to eating sugars I think that eating them is just not worth it.
And in the six weeks when I did not eat them in the past months, I noticed that
* It is easier to stick to my food plan then.
* Healhty foods taste better and I enjoy them more.
* I am better able to notice my body's signals and therefore going to bed on time is also easier as I notice that I am tired more easily.
* My moods are more stable which is so important to me.
