Overeating is one of the main things that happens at Christmas. I find that a lot of the time it is because you’re out of your normal routine. We have started to have breakfast now on Christmas Day to keep a bit of a routine going. Which does help… A bit. You don’t feel quite so hungry by the time your dinner is ready 💁🏽 so I will probably be having porridge or a shake
This year I am determined to not pile my plate up & try to keep myself restricted to a normal portion. I don’t need lots of pigs in blankets & I don’t need second helpings…. I thought if I keep telling myself this it might actually help… 😂😂 does anybody else struggle with this? My lovely Twitter followers agreed 🙊
1. put more veggies on my plate for a start… Then I can’t overdo it with pigs in blankets or Yorkshire puddings 🙈
2. eat my dinner at a slow & steady pace, so I feel fuller quicker.
3. lastly, drink more water with my meal 👌🏼 of course I will be having alcohol too, but water with your meal is always a good idea 💧
*I will be eating lots of Christmas chocolate & getting merry on wine. Don’t you guys worry*
Please wish me luck with this as I have worked so hard to get myself into reasonably good shape so I don’t want it to all go to waste 💪🏽
