#KickTushTuesday: 10 Holiday Commandments
Ho, Ho – Hold on there! I know…we are but a week away from the New Year, Christmas is around the corner and it could be oh-so-easy to throw your hands up in the air and say, “It’s okay. It’s the holidays. I’ll straighten up and eat right next week!”
Instead of giving into the “throw your hands up in the air” urge, try ton Our Lady of Weight Loss‘s 10 Holiday Commandments!
Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Ten Holiday Commandments
Thou shalt honor thy body and believe in thyself.
Be kind, loving and forgiving to yourself, first and foremost – always.
Thou shalt never leave home hungry.
Eat something before the party. A salad, some fruit, even an egg will do. And plenty of water and/or seltzer.
Thou shalt stay clear of the buffet table.
Get away from the food. Why torture yourself? Socialize – have a fun conversation!
Thou shalt not deny thyself a treat or two now and then.
Fill up your plate with Our Lady approved foods, and leave a little space for your favorite treat. Too much denial isn’t a good thing.
Thou shalt recycle food gifts.
Quick, fast – before you change your mind. Give the candy, the cakes, the food away.
Thou shalt keep thy hands busy.
Try knitting, crocheting, cutting & pasting, needlepoint, draw, write – anything to keep your hands busy. Give your creations as gifts!
Thou shalt stay clear of sweat pants.
Wear snug clothing. No room for expansion, no sweats please!
Thou shalt walk – a lot!
Ask Santa for a pedometer for Christmas. And then use it!
Thou shalt drink enough Holy Water to frighten Noah and map out all the restrooms in thy village.
Drink up – water that is.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s plate.
Enjoy your holiday!!!
