1/05/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal:Tuesday

Holiday family traditions are such a big part of the holidays for many people.  Unfortunately for someone working to change their body,  the parties, banana nut bread presents, desserts after a big holidays meal, or as benign as they seem, those little appetizers at the work Christmas party can come back to add up.  I'm not saying not to partake...just keep in mind that there is a compromise.  Don't get into the mindset that 'hey, I fell off the wagon...I may as well enjoy that pecan pie ala mode...".  Enjoy, but keep moving by walking, or do a DVD tape at home, or throw one in your traveling bag.  Celebrate, but keep drinking water and eating some vegetables.  Be merry, but give yourself understanding for why you may want to eat that bread pudding, and chocolate covered marshmallow treat.
