Day 34—Holiday Categories December 19, 2009

How are holidays like hurricanes?

I saw a blog today that I lovedhttp://reversedecision.wordpress.com/ . The author, David, compared holidays to hurricanes. Here’s what he says on July 4, 2008:

“The Fourth of July is a class three holiday. I categorize holidays like hurricanes. Thanksgiving and Christmas are typically class five. Birthdays are class two. Presidents day or Columbus day are tropical storms at best. Because the Fourth involves food but it is not the focus of the celebration, I thought it would be a good testing area for my new “method” for sailing through rough dietary waters.”

David goes on to agree with me (go figure!) that it’s not mentally healthy to deny ourselves of all the food that surrounds us, particularly on Category Three through Category Five days. What is healthy and good for us is to evaluate each food’s nutritional value and satiety value, and partake in moderation of those foods that we really want and love.

My motto is, If it’s calorie- and/or fat-laden, then it better be REALLY good. Otherwise, I’m not going there.

What’s your food philosophy? Feel free to share—and share what works for you in your quest to conquer calories.

’Til tomorrow, stay confident and resolute! Love ya!
