The Start of the 4 Big Holidays: A Dieter’s Nightmare
It’s the start of a period of holidays towards the end of the year that can be brutal on a person with a diet. It starts with all the darned candy and chocolates for Halloween. Then it continues with the Thanksgiving feast of all feasts, which is followed by a Christmas family meal. That meal isn’t as bad or tempting as the Thanksgiving one, but it’s still tough to get by. For the normal person it is all concluded with an end of year New Year’s party/dinner.
After that you can make your New Year’s resolutions and move on with your eating healthy and changing your lifestyle, then failing miserably at it. At least that’s how most years were for me before this year. I would promise myself that I was going to change for the new year, but wouldn’t. I plan on not over indulging during any of the “4 Big Holidays.”
Summer is over and most folks won’t be needing to show as much skin as when the sun is out, so now they can cover up under layers upon layers of clothing. This doesn’t help either. It just makes it easier to hide the fatness. Most folks that I know don’t bother working out during Winter, instead they eat and eat and eat, and eat. And eat some more. I do love that home cooking during the Holidays but I won’t be over doing it.
This is the year of change for me. The following weeks are going to test my inner warriorness to the full extent. I know I can do it, but will I? We shall find out.
