The holidays are upon us. Thanksgiving is tomorrow; a time to reflect on what we are thankful and grateful for.
Instead of freaking out the possibility of overeating, like so many of us weight watchers will do, I have decided to be thankful that we have the means to possibly overeat because it means that we have the means to put food on our table.
I grumbled a lot about not wanting to cook for 3 and being mad that my daughter threw a fit that she wasn't getting "Thanksgiving food" when I told her I wanted to go out. Instead I should've been grateful that a) she wants to spend the holiday at home with us and b) we can afford the beautiful meal we will serve. So, now WE are cooking. All 3 of us have a duty.
The weight watcher in me is a bit nervous about overeating. I am going to try everything in my power not to overdue it. And I am hoping that my annual black Friday shopping trip (all that moving around and walking) will help.
We have had a lot of stress in our lives with family being ill and financial burdens. And holidays in general tend to be stressful with hustling around - decorating, shopping, baking, eating. We have to keep in mind that it's the season to be JOLLY.
