I’m a simple girl with a desire to live a healthy lifestyle for God, not the world. I live in the wonderful state of Kentucky, where I’m a member of a great church and a teacher in a sweet country community. But this post isn’t about me, it’s about you and this Christmas season…
3. Choose Wisely //Realize that some foods only come around this time of year. That also doesn’t mean throw caution to the wind. If you are debating between a Peppermint Mocha or Chipotle, go with the mocha…Chipotle will always be around. Just be cautious with Starbucks drinks, they are loaded with sugars! Go skinny and go small. All you really want or need is a taste, not an overload.
4. Learn to Say “No Thank You” // People are going to give you goodies. Cookies, pies, cakes,candies galore. Learn to say “No Thank You”. As a person who bakes a lot solely to give it to others, they most likely won’t be offended. And if they know your desire for a healthy lifestyle, they should respect your decision.
5. Have Friends Over // By having friends over you can control what is being made. Sounds control freakish I know but trust me it works.
6. Have Just a Taste // If there is a Christmas delicacy you MUST have, then have it but in moderation. I allow myself treats when needed. Because let’s be real, not allowing anything during this season may possibly bring out your inner scrooge…that my friends we don’t want. Have a slice of pumpkin roll, a sliver of peppermint cheesecake, or a bit of peanut brittle….just don’t sit down and eat numerous servings. That will cause a sugar coma, tummy ache, a trip to the pharmacy for some Pepto and you sitting on the couch contemplating why you ate that…all of which are not good feelings.
