Mayday! Mayday! Holidays are attacking!

This fall has been a baaaddd one for me-- overeating and not exercising. I wondered if anyone else was having a hard time and what they do to fight it.

Rachel (our #4) is home and baking like crazy. Previously I had kept bad snacks out of the house. Now there are fresh baked goods, my Achilles Heel, regularly appearing on my kitchen counter.

My very own evil Nemesis is myself! What do you do to fight back?

  1. Hi Vivian,

    It's difficult to get motivated sometimes, especially when there is so much delicious opposition everywhere.

    I recommend setting specific goals, i.e. "I'm going to lose five pounds before January 1st." Make sure the goal is measurable, reachable, has a set date, and that you know the smaller steps it will take to get there. If it helps, set up a reward system so you have something to look forward to besides greater energy and weight loss. It has definitely helped me.

    I recently joined Keeping track of what I eat and how much I exercise helps a lot. If you join, (anybody!) let me know and I'll add you as a friend. It's free, but keeping track does take a bit of time.

    Sometimes deciding to change is the hardest part. Reaching health goals feels awesome.
