On Track during Thanksgiving

Wow, made it thru the biggest eating holiday of the year… even with stressful family situations that totally get me to emotionally eat.

Here’s the strategies that worked:
Food:
1) Tiny portions of protein, veggies and only my very most favorite carbs.
2) tiny seconds of protein and veggies
3) Half a portion of dessert
4) two bottles of flavored water

Non Food:
5) HIIT workout in morning – (155 rate up to 170 ish for an hour, dropping to 130 during the 3 water breaks)
6) Chew gum
7) Made it about the people – talked to each of my sisters individually
8) Took a walk when things got tense
9) Didn’t eat during clean up or prep.

Results for the weigh-in on Friday morning: same as the weigh-in on Wednesday before Thanksgiving.  One month, down six pounds.

Feel really good about how things went. Because I was using all my strategies, I don’t have the anxious, “gotta gotta eat” feeling.

Now on to the next 7 pounds before the end of the year! 35 days! You can do it!
