The big day is almost here. Congrats to you for taking the time to come up with a plan before the holidays arrive! Now you know how exactly how much freedom you can have without getting completely off track. By thinking about what you are going to do beforethe big day arrives, you avoid making rash, emotional decisions and paying the price later. Finally, a holiday season with no regrets!
If only it were that easy.
You know me, I believe in keeping it 100. I would be doing you a disservice if I didn't warn you to expect the unexpected:
I don’t share this to scare you but so that you are prepared. You will now be able say to yourself, “Coach Tam told me this would happen!”, go right into firefighting mode, and WIN.
Here's the key: thinking beyond the now. In the moment, it easily feels like that will be the last homemade macaroni and cheese you will ever have an opportunity to eat, and you have to have it. In reality we know that’s not true. There will be more chances. Even if there aren’t, what harm is really done?
As a recovering foodaholic I often have to remind myself that my life does not revolve around food. I have other more important things to live for and so do you. You don’t have to stuff yourself just because it’s there. You can enjoy food without going overboard. You just have to remember that the commitment you made is important that that mac and cheese!
