This Saturday I ate three pieces of cake for dessert. Yup, three pieces. That is not a good choice by any standard. Cake isn’t a healthy food and three pieces is far from moderation. It was a bad choice. Anyone can recognize that. The problem is I think when a lot of us, myself included, make a bad food choice like that we feel like we should just throw in the towel and eat whatever we want for the rest of the day. Sometimes, if I make a bad food choice on a Tuesday I convince myself I’ve ruined the week and might as well wait until the following Monday to start again.
Don’t know whether or not I’ll stick to them, but here are some of my plans to make my Thanksgiving a little healthier. If you’d like to try any of these, feel free:
· Only drink water
· Cut my own SMALL piece of dessert (albeit every dessert)
· One serving of dinner (this is going to be hard for me, I know)
· Workout in the morning
· If the parade is on, be in motion; don’t just sit and watch it
· Take a little walk with one or more of my relatives between dinner and dessert
