Mona’s quick tips to surviving a holiday weekend…

4 Jul

Remember your goals this weekend! In my own experience and in my type of work, I see people forgetting their goals and totally blowing it because of a holiday. This leads to guilt, shame and can set set you back if you are not careful. If you don’t absolutely love something, don’t eat it! Alot of times we will load our plate with food because that is tradition or it is something  we have always done. Ask yourself this question, how has that worked for me in the past? When going to a BBQ, don’t worry about hurting people’s feelings by not eating their food, after all you have to live with yourself. Offer to bring greens, that way you know you can at least have a burger salad. If you are having a gathering at your house, send temping foods home with family and friends. Make sure you are getting in all veggies and use your fruit as a dessert (here is a recipe for fruit dip, perfect with strawberry’s and apples) fruit dip. Most important,  drink your water!!! Try and not let food run your life, you are in control.

Hope you have an amazing weekend!
