It's the weekend after Thanksgiving and I hope everyone spent time with their families, or people they love. Hopefully everyone had a hot meal, also. If you ate too much; don't fret over it. I know, most CPT's won't tell you that, but my beliefs about food aren't exactly the norm. I believe that consistency and moderation are the key to any successful lifestyle program, and that deprivation is not the way to live.
Splurging for the holidays is not a mistake, bad or evil. It means you're human. If you went overboard on Thanksgiving dinner remember to reign it back in. Eat smaller leftover portions if you don't want to waste food, or give the leftovers to someone who is not as fortunate.
Try your best to get back to your normal nutritional program by Monday. Most people feel better to start programs on Monday so use this weekend as a way to relax, and mentally ready yourself for the new week.
