Happy Cinco de Mayo!- Even on a Diet!

Usually partying is the theme with this favorite holiday. However just be aware that drinking alcohol can cause your blood sugar to be very unpredictable and can cause you to eat more and even have more cravings, and of course put your weight loss efforts on hold for the week.

Happy St Patrick's Day: The Leprechaun

Being St. Patrick's day here's a little 'Green Day' trivia for you. Did you know the a leprechaun is an Irish fairy? Supposedly he resembles a small, old man approximately two feet tall and usually dressed like a shoemaker. He wears a cocked hat and a leather apron. And he isn't even a very friendly dude either, a leprechaun is known to be aloof and unfriendly, lives alone, and passes his time making shoes.

Pause and Think

Those innocent little goodies laying around everywhere aren't as innocent as they look. BEFORE you take a bite of something, think of a big red stop sign in front of you. Then pause and think just how badly do you want it. Will it be really worth it?

Recovering From A Diet Slip

After a Slip.... It happens, we slip up especially after a long holiday weekend like Thanksgiving.

But, keep in mind it's not just during the holidays that a slip around your diet plan may occur. The whole entire process of losing weight involves having a slip now and then. In fact, it's perfectly normal. Anyone who has dieted has had slip-ups along the way, regardless of the time of year.

You are not a failure just because of one lapse, or even five or more. You are only a failure if you give up entirely. Staying down is when you are a failure.

Recovery after a slip requires continuous action. The first and most important step means to forgive yourself and internally let it go. Beating yourself up doesn't really help you change. If you are so busy caught up in the blame and shame game, your brain just wants to defend you, to protect you from hurt and being in emotional pain. At that point you are cut off from true freedom for yourself in that you may be unable to learn from the experience. Real compassion for yourself puts your brain into a safe space, freeing you up to look at things objectively where you can learn from past mistakes.

Then you can examine what you learned from the experience: what changes can you make to prevent it from happening again? Get back on track with a positive attitude and renewed commitment.

Remember you can have a "fresh start" any day of the week. Typically there is a tendency to wait to get back on track the Monday after an event (or if a slip occurs during the holiday season, getting back on track won't take place until New Year's). But the longer the stall the harder it may become to get back on track. Make a real commitment during December to come in weekly regardless of what happens. Everyone needs support especially at this time of year!

Buckminster Fuller said, "You can never learn less; you can only learn more. The reason I know so much is because I have made so many mistakes." He was a mathematician and philosopher who never graduated from college but received 46 doctorates in the end.

Summary:

  • Forgive yourself and let go of the slip.
  • Examine the mistake.
  • Define what you actually learned from the slip.
  • Take action by making any needed changes.
  • Keep a positive attitude and be patient.
  • Get back on your program.

Holiday Eating Excuses

It's one thing to indulge a little during this favorite time of year, but all too often it's about overdoing it almost every day throughout the entire holiday season and using mindless excuses to do so.

Not long ago I wrote a blog and displayed images of what 100 calories look like with healthy foods. This really helps when trying to plan menus and recipes that are healthy, good choices. Well, now that we just finished with Halloween we may have some leftover candy to deal with. So it occurred to me- what do calories in candy look like. Here's a guide to help you make some wise choices. Some of these may really surprise you.
