Well the sun is shining and I feel totally back in control of my eating habits. Chocolate Easter bunnies are a distant memory to me now. Thank goodness. Holidays always take a toll on me. It's almost like I use it as an excuse to eat unhealthy and splurge. Not almost like...that is EXACTLY what happens. Every holiday that passes I pick one day and just eat whatever I want. I guess that's not an entirely bad thing, but it sure isn't a good thing. There are really only 4 holidays I do this for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. I usually try not to go over board but I don't count points as I would any other day.
Why is it that we feel we can let go on holidays? I get this feeling on weekends too, not to the same extent but I still feel like if I do great all week, I can loosen up a little on the weekend. I always stay within my flex points but the thought of even using one flex point through the week is absurd to me. Flex points are for weekends...maybe it's just a habit I have acquired over the 15 months I've been on WW because Scott and I always treat ourselves on the weekend and our big conversation on Thursday night is what we are going to use our flex points on this weekend! How do you guys use your flex points? and how do you handle the holidays?
