Christmas – is the Goose getting fat?

Control the calories before and during Christmas so January doesn’t see you FAT

It is the old rhyme that features the Goose being fattened ready for the Christmas feast. Don’t follow in the steps of the Goose getting fat from eating too much in a short period of time. Extra weight is often put on during the Christmas celebrations when large amounts of food in the home somehow signifies wealth and happiness. At festive times there is always a list of highly calorific foods available. If you are going to eat any of these high calorie rich food goodies e.g. mince pies, rich fruit cake, hand made chocolates then take control and limit what you eat. Check out the calorie count before you buy or eat any of these seasonal celebratory foods. The same goes for alcoholic drinks, moderation is always a valid path to take.

Try swapping something out of your normal meal when you have one of these treats. For example cut out bread and butter for the base of a sandwich and have a wrap instead or use large lettuce leaves stuffed with your choice of filling. There are plenty of ideas for healthy lower calorie foods and meals on the internet – having a balance is the aim of any good meal and diet.

Some people get caught up eating or even gorging on these high calorie foods at Christmastime due to stress or upset, so try relaxing quietly on your own for 5 or 10 minutes. Just have a quiet day dream imagine somewhere special for example a favourite holiday place.

So don’t wait for January until you see the FAT problem.  Christmas is coming and so is January, New Year resolutions can start now and get you ready to avoid extra FAT and weight gain.

Good Luck.

Happy New Year – Goodbye to Christmas

The Festive Season 2011 is now over and done with bring on 2012!!

This time of year is when the pressure for many people becomes overwhelming. Thinking of the people who are no longer here to share the joy of life, thinking of the good times gone by and worrying about what the future holds. All of these thoughts and emotions can have an affect on us.  Some people cope well with this time and absorb the celebrations, enjoying the lifting of their spirits! Others are overcome with grief of a time or situation gone by and they become unsettled possibly suffering from stress or depression and wanting this time to pass quickly. Some may well turn to the relief of over drinking or even overeating. Help may be close at hand, just by simply listening and giving time to the person who is encountering this difficult period the gloom may be lifted and they too can enjoy the ‘time of goodwill’ and look forward to a New Year of valuable life.

It is also a great time to get in touch with those long standing friends and relatives who you meant to contact during the year and for the normal reasons of everyday life you failed to complete the excercise. Making ‘resolutions’ often seems to be a quick fix statement then the rest of the year kicks in and the resolutions are but a distant memory! Planning is not everyones’ cup of tea, I find that it helps me and I have helped clients through hypnosis to make planning work (see hypnotic coaching).

There is a saying attributed to John Lennon that says “Life is what happens to you while  you’re busy making plans” which is a good way to make us think about how we use plans in our life.  Making an effort to get in touch and see old friends can provide a welcome boost to your life whether or not you use a plan. Put a deadline date on when you will make that contact and just do it!! You do have to start somewhere and at some time, now or in the future, using New Year wishes is as good a place as any to start, good luck.

Thank you for reading this blog please accept my sincere wishes for a Happy New Year 2012, and make life work for you while you are here to enjoy.
