Yesterday we discussed how crucial it is for you to have a PLAN to control your calorie intake during the holidays. Today’s tip is even more simple and expands on the premise.
Plan on staying control of your alcohol intake.
Look, a drink or two isn’t going to be the end of the world. But when two turns to three in a night…… or two every night for three nights straight….well…..it’s gonna hit you in the waistline.
I’m not getting on my soap box here. I’m just telling you something you already know:
Too much alcohol not only adds up to too many calories, it leads to bad decisions. And in this case, we’re talking about bad eating decisions.
When alcohol enters the equation even the best laid plans crumble. The extra calories from the cocktails is one thing. But really it’s the extra calories you chew that start to add up.
One piece of cake turns to two…
A handful of chips turns into a a bag…
The dip sitting in front of you mysteriously vanishes…into your belly…
You get the picture. 😉
Over-indulging in alcohol leads to disintegration of your resolve and control.
Have fun. Enjoy yourself. Just be conscious of what alcohol does to your decision making. Stay in control.
Yours in health,
