Don’t let holiday eating get you down

Posted by Dr. Susan on April 16, 2006

Passover and Easter are two of the big eating holidays of the year! So, how did you do? Do you feel like you “lost” all your good habits, and that you’re back where you started because of one or two days of “bad” eating? Thinking like this is NOT HELPFUL and it’s not true!! Part of life is eating during the holidays. As long as you go back to your new healthy eating habits and get back to exercising, you’re still doing great. Focus on all the great changes you’re making, whether they’re big or small. Don’t focus on the small dip in your will power. Think about what you might do differently for the next holiday or “big eating” event. Learn from the one that just passed, but don’t be too hard on yourself!
