Holiday Treat Traps and How to Avoid Them

Holiday Treat Traps and How to Avoid Them


Part of what pageants girls are being judged on is their physical appearance so it is important that you eat healthy and exercise to stay fit.

During the holiday season, however, this is easier said than done. There are temptations everywhere, and I mean everywhere! There are chocolates sitting in your living room, cookies on the counter, latkes at the Hanukkah party, and your neighbor’s famous caramel popcorn delivered right to your front porch.

Here are a couple ways to avoid putting on those holiday pounds:

–       Share the treats you are given. Invite your friends over to munch on cookies with you so you do not end up eating the whole dozen on your own.

–       Don’t sit down to watch a movie with the box of chocolates because by the time the ending credits roll you might find that the chocolates are all gone.

–        If you receive a holiday treat, make sure to cover it in a non-transparent container so you are less tempted to snack on it throughout the day.

–       Don’t buy big bags of candy to put out for holiday decoration—it reduces the chances that you will end up eating it.

While it is important to stay healthy, don’t prevent yourself from having a treat every now and then—it’s part of the holiday spirit to have some sweets.

And if you find that you accidentally ate a dozen cookies or drink a whole bottle of apple cider, don’t be discouraged. Just forgive yourself, go to bed, and wake up the next morning and try to do better. Hating yourself for eating that extra piece of pie will get you nowhere, but the confidence from loving yourself will.  Happy Holidays!!
