I am personally going to PIG OUT xmas day! Each day I want to over eat or want some junk food I tell myself that xmas day is just around the corner. 1 major splurge day then back to it
The thing is, I won't eat as much as I think I will because my appetite isn't as big as it was and fatty food will make me feel a bit sick!
I have 2 casual jobs and am off for a few weeks and with all this extra time it is really hard not to just veg out on the couch and eat.
I'm making myself walk/run first thing in the morning, it makes me feel really good afterwards and i'm less likely to cave in.
We're lucky that we live 30kms out of town and since there is no junk food in the house, I can't eat it!
I've i'm having a bad craving I tell myself to go do some exercise first - walk/run, sit ups, push ups etc and afterwards if I still REALLY want that food then I can have a bit...99% of the time I end up not wanting it because I think that exercise has just burned excess fat, do I really want to eat something that will compromise that?
I'm going to get some sort of yoga/pilates or aerobic exercise DVD to do during the holidays and those days off to keep me motivated. Maybe you could try that too?
Best of luck, and well done on your loss so far - you're amazing!
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.
Just enjoying the new and improved healthy me and embracing my new lifestyle!
