I promised that I would blog every third day and so I am posting this little blog on Christmas Day to make sure that I stick to the promise I made in my very first blog ‘I made the decision to try’.
I wasn’t sure what to blog about on a day when pretty much the whole population abandons a healthy and sensible approach to food and alcohol. Then I had a little flash of inspiration whilst doing some last minute Christmas shopping, today’s blog should be about celebrating a little overindulgence.
I believe that a healthy lifestyle comes from balance, and that means occasionally letting that little devil on your shoulder lead you down the path of doing something that is going to give you great pleasure but isn’t the healthiest choice.
I know that over the next two days my calorie consumption is going to be that of an Olympic swimmer. I am going to eat and drink more than I would normally consume in a working week but I don’t care. In fact I am looking forward to letting go and rewarding myself for all the times I have chosen the healthy option over the last three months.
I know that I am not going to undo all of the hard work I have been putting in with two days of gluttony and therefore I am going to enjoy every slice of turkey, every pig in blanket and every Roses chocolate. And I encourage you to do the same!
Christmas only comes round once and year and it should be a time of celebration and spending time with the ones you love. So I actively encourage you to enjoy today and the next few days to come, there will be plenty of time in 2016 to work off the overindulgence and restore the balance in your life!
Thank you for reading this blog and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
