Oh those dreaded holidays
It's that time of year again for us to guilt and depress ourselves with over spending, over eating and under exercising. Who would like to fast forward to January?
As I reflect upon the day of giving thanks, I find myself reflecting on this holiday season so far and looking forward to January. I've thought about all of the things that I'm not doing as consistently anymore, already. I was so incredibly consistent with my exercising and now I can't even remember what the schedule was that I was on. How do we get off track so quickly?
It seems to happen without fail every year. When watching the television the dietitians are on talking about skipping those rolls and dessert, but really is this something we should even be concerned about?
In my experience, the problem isn't Thanksgiving to Christmas, the problem is Christmas to Thanksgiving. The key to success is what we do on a daily basis, not what we do every once in a while. We really demonize the holidays and blame them more so than we should, or maybe we're just purely terrified of them.
Knowing that what we are doing on a daily basis is where we are struggling the most, what do we do? We continue to struggle with following through on the plan, or maybe we need to re-evaluate the plan.
Anyone setting a New Year's resolution this year? Of course not, that plan never works.
