Relax, unwind and enjoy your Canada Day
Happy Canada Day to all my lovely readers. It is an absolutely gorgeous day – the sun is shining and the temperature is perfect. We are about to set off to my father’s citizenship ceremony. After 41 years he is finally becoming a Canadian citizen! The day promises to be a good one.
Today most of you will be enjoying a hot-dog, a potato chip (or two) and a beverage (perhaps more than one :)). I encourage you to enjoy and experience the food you are eating. Engage in mindful eating (something I touched on a while ago). The biggest thing – don’t feel guilty.
Restraining yourself from the foods you love will only make you want them more. I am not suggesting that you gorge yourself on sweets, soda, and chips but, encouraging you to eat and enjoy in moderation. It’s hard at the beginning, but it pays off in the long run.
Enjoy today (as you enjoy everyday). Enjoy the food you eat and the beers you drink. Do NOT feel guilty. Food and guilt are never a good combination.
Happy Canada Day!
