Someone asked me for suggestions before the holidays ( food wise. ) We all need to condition, to prepare ourselves mentally to the ” in case ” or the ” what if ” scenario.
We have all been there 🙂
I found myself typing frantically, not being able to stop and realized I was actually preparing myself… And as I have been asked to post more oa articles, I thought, why not use this for my blog?
Plan of action
My best advice for a consistent plan of action is,
1st. To ask our higher power to take away the craziness we have in our heads toward food.
2nd. To do what we love doing besides our job 🙂 this was my saviour.
3rd. To try not to be too dependent on people to fix our problems. I always thought the
answer was always going to come from an outside factor eg. some magical word my sponsor
would say that would pull me out of the hell hole I had created for myself.
The only person capable of doing so, is oneself.
4th. To differentiate between the foods that are mine and those that are not
is a priority. It is what we call recovery.
Once we have that awareness, we are on the right track and miracles happen.
5th. Last but not least, to be aware and have the knowledge that no matter how big is our
moment of weakness, NEVER under no circumstances take that ( stupid, crazy ) bite. It is
NOT worth it!
We are giving strength to something that hasn’t. So, let’s keep it that way. Keep it the way
it is in reality, not what our minds desperately want us to fabricate and believe.
What do they say ? Repetition is the only form of consistency we can achieve.
As we repeat, we train ourselves into new habits. Maybe it’s bringing back old, long buried
good habits, who knows? We were not born thinking crazy!
However. Remember one last thing before holidays starts. Whatever happens, if we ever slip in
the tiniest way, let’s not fall into the trap of blowing the whole situation out of proportion.
I went there, it’s a big down slide and it’s not pretty! We are talking about FOOD not major
The less we exaggerate the situation, the more likely we are to spring back up and resume our sane
Have a happy holiday!
Great advice OA. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
