It's That Time of Year Again!

It's almost here! Thanksgiving!

I cannot wait to EAT me some yummy homecooked, southern comfort food.  I will NOT be watching what I eat that day, that is one thing I can tell you.

I will be having like 3 "Thanksgivings" this coming week.... so how I'm going to survive this week I don't know! When it comes to that kind of food, it's not easy for me not to overdo it. If it's there in front of me, I will eat it, and I'm not talking small portions sizes! I mean, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, pumpkin pie....oh my. Help!
Soooo in order to minimize the damage, here's what I do:
 I will eat as good as possible the rest of the week, eat my normal meals the day of and try to get a workout in (or at least a walk) on the days of the big meals, and try to keep my portions small and not eat everything in sight! I also have a habit of snacking on sweets and treats throughout the day on Thanksgiving, even when I'm not even hungry, so I'll have to be careful with that.

But other than that, I will enjoy a few more treats than normal, and it will be FINE. But I'm not going to just completely forget about eating clean altogether -THAT is when you get into trouble and the pounds slowly start to creep on, and before you know it, you've gained 10 pounds by the new year! Don't let it be you!

Tell me: what do you do during this time of the year to stay on track with healthy eating? Any tips or tricks you use ? Do you let yourself indulge in a few treats or stick to your diet plan?
