Calories don't count on Holidays

Monday, July 05, 2010

It seems like I am always "watching what I eat". Yesterday I decided to eat my hotdog ON THE BUN and then I ate a hamburger ON THE BUN with all the fixin's. Today I feel great! I think I needed that break. So, maybe that will be my new plan. 10-15 holidays a year, (well maybe not that many - but the "eatin' holiday's) I will just enjoy them! I'll stay on track the rest of the time.

    The idea behind SparkPeople is to make a lifestyle change so that you have a program you can stick to (and enjoy) the rest of your life. If you feel that you are depriving yourself of things you like to eat, you're more likely to binge on them if the opportunity presents itself. Occasionally eat the foods you want, but eat thme in smaller amounts. Adjust your diet so your calories are in range and adjust your exercise to make up for extra calories. Also, variety works well--if you eat the same foods all the time and/or do the same exercise routines every day, your body will settle in to a routine and losng weight will be more difficult.

    Boosting your calories in one day, also gives your metabolism a boost. Just go back to normal the next day. Metabolism is still high, but keep your calories low. This helps you to break through a plateau. Keep on sparkin'!
