During the Labor Day Holiday we will be having a week of family and fun! Yesterday we did the food shopping for the week and nothing but good stuff landed in our cart. No sugar or "yummy" goodness found its way into our grocery bags!!! We purchased nothing but good meats, some fruit and veggies. That's all!!!!
I'm not gonna lie and say that I wasn't feeling just a tad jealous when looking at all the other Labor Day shoppers. Geez, in their carts, all I saw were chips, cookies, candy, beer, beer, beer....did I say beer? I also saw people buying donuts and bread and ICE CREAM and soda and cake!!!!!!!!
Not gonna lie. I wanted some. OK I wanted a lot of it. Oh ICE CREAM!!!!!!
Fortunately my good senses kicked in and I realized that I'm not deprived. I have excellent food to eat and some sugar free snacks. I REALLY AM SATISFIED with what I have. To get over that yucky feeling, all it took was that I stayed focused on my shopping list, I persevered and got out of the store. And very soon, all was well!!!
Bonus part is.....If I just keep focused and not lose my head I will see a significant weight loss on Monday. Imagine.....losing weight even on a holiday!!!
How about you...On holidays, do you just do what you always do and buy your traditional goodies and yummy goodness? Or do you stay focused on your health and fitness plan during a holiday?
How about this year...we stay focused!!!!!
Are you with me?!?!?!?
