Did you enjoy an extended weekend?
Did you catch up with the family?
Did you make sure you followed your Easter traditions?
Did you stuff yourself so full of chocolate that you couldn’t possibly eat another bite until at least….Thursday.
Holidays do this too us don’t they?
They tend to turn into a food fest, with no holds barred.
Rationality flies out the window and we attack the feast in a frenzy.
Total disregard for our goals and the guilt that will surely surface later.
Why is this?
Well, it’s my belief (and that of many others) that the link between emotion and food is sometimes too strong for our rational self to overcome.
Emotional situations, Holidays included, bring to light many feelings of happiness and joy.
And these feelings are often associated with the consumption of food and drink.
Our memories tell us that when we eat and drink in the situation, we will all have a good time.
And of course! Every time we have eaten and drank on a Holiday, we have had a good time..haven’t we?
It’s a self fulfilling prophecy.
So we eat, we drink and we make merry until we are stuffed.
So stuffed we feel awful.
And with a mixture of bloating and guilt, we waddle home and spend the next 48 hours shaming ourselves.
Does this sound at all familiar?
Of course it does….and well….we have to move on.
Yeh, you screwed up. Won’t be the last time.
And as they say…it’s not about how you fall, it’s about how you get up.
Fall down 7 times, get up 8.
So, how are you going to correct this? What is your plan?
It’s so easy to get back on track again.
