Surviving Thanksgiving with all that food!
Thanksgiving can be a difficult time for Emotional Eaters. This year we have put together a road map for our Blissfully Healthy Community on how to survive Thanksgiving without feeling guilty or shameful!
Tip #1: Have a healthy start to your day. Get up and make yourself a healthy breakfast so you are not tempted to snack all day. Skip unhealthy dips and opt for an almond snack or fruit instead. Begin the day STRONG so you are not tempted to overeat later.
Tip #2: Get involved in a local activity like the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot before Thanksgiving dinner or head the gym, go for a long walk. BE ACTIVE!
Tip #3: Dress to impress! Skip the Yoga pants and sweats, instead dress up and show off your beautiful self.
Tip #4: Use healthy alternatives this year instead of heavy butters and creams.
Tip 5: Take what you love and leave the rest! Know that you can go back for seconds if you want! By taking the special feelings out of the food we have a better chance of not overeating.
Tip #6: Don’t tempt yourself with a dirty plate!!!
Tip #7: Prioritize your plate!
Tip #8: Be active AFTER Thanksgiving Dinner!
Tip #9: If you can avoid taking leftovers all together, do it! If not, take enough for one day and give the rest away!
Tip #10: Remember what this holiday is really about. Enjoy time with your friends and family. Open your door to the less fortunate, volunteer, do things that make your heart full and happy!
From our family to yours, we wish you a Blissfully Healthy & Happy Thanksgiving!
With love always ~ Emmie
