Hey my friends!
So we just had a huge feast for Thanksgiving and probably gained at least three pounds. And of course we still have two more holidays to look forward to packing on more pounds…
So what do you do when you want to enjoy the feast, but don’t want to pack on the extra pounds? No, you don’t starve yourself a week in advance. And no, you don’t stay in the gym an extra hour each day until the big meal.
Let me first say that it is quite alright to have a “cheat day”. However, some people take advantage of it. Having a cheat day does not mean it’s your opportunity to eat all the foods you’ve been craving. Remember that there is a big different between binge eating and cheat day.
Cheat day simply means you can incorporate foods, but in moderation. You still want to keep your portion control. And it’s also a good idea to go for a walk after your meal. If you live in the Northeast region such as myself, the weather might not be the best for you to take a walk. If that is the case, I suggest standing and/or moving around talking to your family members and/or friends. Doing this will help you digest the food, opposed to just sitting.
So the two key things you need to remember:
- Portion control
- Move around after your meal to help with digestion.
I hope these tips help. Until next time…night night 💋
Today is ‘Giving Tuesday’ and I have teamed up with the World Food Campaign to #unitetofighthunger in helping raise awareness about the innocent lives caught in the crossfire of war and conflict.
I urge you to go to https://www.wfpusa.org/https://www.wfpusa.org/conflict-and-hunger to learn more about this worthy cause, as no one person should go without food.
As we think about the upcoming holiday season, think about those who are in need of not presents, but the gift of a decent meal.
Until next time my friends, night night 💋

Hey my friends!
Now that Thanksgiving is over and it’s time to focus on what I consider to be the best holiday…
Are you just like I am and put your all into your holiday home decor? Do you sit, ponder and then execute a plan? Having a different theme each year can become costly. Let me tell you how I take some of the stress out of my planning and on a budget?
I plan my theme for the next Christmas season during the current year. I know you might think that is absolutely insane, but here’s the method to my madness…
Hobby Lobby, Target and many other stores discount Christmas decorations 70-90% off the regular price. If you know ahead of time what your theme will be next year, you have a game plan of what to look for. Last year I had a winter wonderland theme and knew this year I wanted a more traditional Christmas theme. I knew going into the stores that my focus was to purchase ornaments in reds, golds and greens during the clearance sale. I also knew that I wanted nutcracker soldiers and ballerina figurines. By doing this, I not only took the stress out of shopping for decorations this year, I more importantly saved hundreds of dollars.
