Getting Fat for Christmas? Don’t fret!

Steve and Bonnie PfiesterChristmas time (for me) is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus and a special time for family, friends, a chance to minister to others, a chance to rest, to reflect, to joyfully give, to receive (which can be hard for some people) – and it’s a time to enjoy good food and not feel guilty about it.

I’m letting myself off the hook for a few days and just enjoying time with Steve and special people in my life. Besides, I don’t think anyone on their death bed regrets one last workout or regrets eating too many calories, do you? Of course not! They regret not spending time with their loved ones and making the most of each minute of the day.

We all go through this. We wake up feeling fat and full of regret because we are out of our routine, but this is a busy time of the year – and it’s just a season. As long as you don’t make eating too much and resting a habit, you’ll be just fine. Seriously! Even if you gain 5lbs over Christmas. That’s only a little over 2 weeks of dieting and training to get right back to where you were. So relax! It will all be ok!

If you are beating yourself up for eating too much or not working out enough. You’ll most likely have the chance to jump right back to it next week, so enjoy this time of year. It only comes once a year so savor the moment! Make some memories! I’ll give you a hall pass! πŸ™‚

Merry Christmas everyone!!!!
