I don't know about you, but Christmas can be super stressful! Shopping, cooking, wrapping, visiting & hosting, countless social demands, church services, family issues and more!
It can feel like an overwhelming season with the pressure to make it perfect, to purchase (and afford) all the gifts, to be the perfect hostess and cook, and to be the peacekeeper of the family!
WHEW! Who wouldn’t cry out, “Praise the Lord and pass the Haggen-Daz ice cream!”
For years, around Christmas I'd gain at least 5 pounds (ok, closer to 10) . I used it as an excuse to break all of my boundaries with the promise that I'd restart my diet on January 1st. With the seasonal holiday stress, I’d over extend myself and over-eat until I feel stuffed.
This year, stop stuffing yourself with succulent feasts and treats and think about this..
