Do you struggle with over eating this time of year?
Do you use the Holiday's as an excuse to eat whatever you want?
There are some many events going on all around us and usually there is food involved.
The office party.
The neighbors party.
The friends party.
The family gatherings.
Christmas Eve appetizers.
Christmas Day Dinner.
New Years parties.
Food, Food and more Food.
It's never ending.
The average American gains 8lbs per Holiday season.
No thank you. That is one "gift" I would return!!
Now, don't get me wrong. I believe that having a treat, in moderation, is a good thing. I plan for them (usually). I'll eat pizza but load it with veggies and have it with a large salad. This season, I have lots of added incentive to keep my nutrition on track and keep from over indulging.
I wanna shed those few pounds that crept on after tri season.
I want to be faster this year and lighter = faster!
Oh, and Coach has set up a little challenge for us!!
We need to keep and honest food log from NOW until Christmas Eve.
Just what I needed.
How is this for perspective?
One of the best ways to hold yourself accountable for what you put in your mouth is to write it down. Face it, writing down "brownie" and then five minutes later "another brownie" and then 10 minutes later "yet another brownie" has a way of preventing you from going too too crazy ~Coach
So I upped the ante for myself and I'll be putting my FOOD LOG right here on my blog.
See that little tab at the top?
The one that says #logmyfood
Yup, that one. You will find EVERYTHING I consume between now and Christmas Eve.
So feel free to check on me and see what I am eating.
Feel free to harass me via Twitter, Facebook, comments here if need be.
Or if you're feeling brave, start your own!! (leave me the link if you do!)
Oh, and speaking of parties!!~
