10th – 16th December 2017
Throughout the month of November I did really well with my eating. I did a month long detox. I thought it was time to take back control of my food intake. I feel I did really well.
My plan was to continue the detox throughout December as well. I have to say that hasn’t gone quite as well.
I am a person who loves Christmas and the fact I have kids I like to make it fun for them too. I now only have one child who believes in Santa and all the magic of Christmas. I am trying to preserve that for as long as I can even though I don’t think I will have that for many years more.
I also love the celebrations that Christmas brings. There are usually lots of parties and events to go to.
I love the fact that Christmas is a time to let your hair down and have some fun. It is a good time to catch up with people that you haven’t seen in a long time.
It’s also a time where all the naughty food comes out the cupboard and you can’t seem to resist eating it even though you are not hungry.
I have definitely fallen in that trap this year. It’s like I have never seen food before and have to sample everything on offer.
My detox in November was great but it’s had totally the opposite effect on me in the month of December.
I have decided I am going to enjoy my Christmas within reason. I am going to take a little bit of control over what I eat, but I am not going to beat myself up over having something I shouldn’t but all I do know is that I am back on it in January.
