We all ate too much. You did, he did, she did, and I definitely did. How do we deal with that? For me, it’s pretty simple: eat right starting with the very first meal of the day.
In my experience, I’ve found that getting back on the wagon and eating properly with the very next meal after a holiday is the best way to get back to where I need to be. This morning, I’m a bit bloated and retaining water, but I know that when I run later, it’ll mostly go away. I know that within about 4 days, I’ll be back to normal, and this blip on the scale will be nothing but a memory.
Eat those leftovers, but do so sensibly. You can always package up the leftovers into smaller meals that you can use for lunches and dinners. Double bonus: first, you’ll have pre-prepared meals for the next couple of days, and; second, you can make sure the portion sizes are appropriate and this will help keep you from over-eating.
Happy Post Holiday! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
