How to Mindfully Eat This Holiday Season So You Don’t Overeat or Battle Guilt. Happy Holiday Eating Series #1
The Holiday Season is here!!! Some of you might think "YAY!" and get on my level about the holidays. Is anyone else ready to start playing Christmas music the day after Halloween??? Or maybe you are not of those people and hearing this made you gag a little.
I will tell you friends I haven't always been this chipper about the holiday season. There was a season that this time really stressed me out. I would enter the holiday season nervous about seeing people— I didn’t want them to see me and witness the weight I gained or felt like I gained that year. I didn’t want to be around all the food, knowing every bite would be an internal battle. Don’t eat this, but I want to eat this, ok fine one bite, crap! It is so good now I want it all! Insert all the food followed with boatloads of guilt and play this scenario on repeat all season long. It stole precious time from me and robbed me of joy during the holidays.
Whatever emotion you bring into the holiday season I am here to be a little voice in your ear to let you know you have the power to rewrite your experience THIS year. This doesn’t have to be a season you GET THROUGH, rather you hold the key to making it a season you not only grow through… but find joy in.
Today I am kicking off a 3-episode series: Happy Holiday Eating and my mission here is this: To help you find that sparkle this holiday season. Regardless of your past experiences with holidays, your food struggles, the weight you may or may not have gained this year, despite the difficult people you might be around or the busy schedule that we all have coming… I don’t want to hear any of you say “I just need to get through the holidays” no sisters, we are here to be in the moment, especially during the holiday season and we hold the key to our own happiness.
This is where we let our empowered eating skills not only shine on our plates, but they also show up in how we live. I am praying this prepares you and encourages you this holiday season… today’s episode is on mindful eating and how this is the key to keeping you from overeating or battling guilt. Are you ready to grow? Let's do it!
