Christmas FOOOOOOOD…
So, I’ve been home in Louisville the past week for Christmas with my family…

I’ve been shopping with my mom…

and learning my Grandma’s secret recipes…

and cooking a spread of Christmas dinner for 16…

and opening presents with my family…

and SANTA EVEN CAME!!!!…

(even though I was at a different house… HOW DID HE KNOW???!)

We’ve been wrapped up in a whirlwind of making memories …

& NO.

I didn’t turn down baking with my Grandma because I didn’t want to eat the cake…

but I USED TO.

I want you to realise something that I used to NOT understand…

I thought that if I wanted to live a healthy lifestyle…

I had to cut out anything & anyone that didn’t “FOLLOW MY RULES”…

THAT WAS DUMB.

If they were going to eat stuff I couldn’t have…

Or have treats that were tempting…

Or be challenging my ability to stay on track…

I JUST WOULDN’T PARTAKE.

& I did it all wrong…

I want you to learn from my mistakes…

So you don’t do the same thing during your journey…

Here’s the Truth:

I found that BAKING cookies & cakes with my Grandma made me STRONGER than my cravings…

I found that looking at my Mom’s famous Mac & Cheese all day and NOT eating anything – WAS A VICTORY…

I realised that I had to stop HIDING from my favorite foods, & OVERCOME THEM!…

I don’t want you to miss out on the memories because you want to skip the calories that others are eating…

I know it’s hard to be around others that may not be the best example of a healthy lifestyle –

BUT …

It’s going to teach you a lot of good lessons & make you stronger in the long run…

AND IT’S TOTALLY WORTH IT!

What doesn’t Kill you – Makes you Stronger…

& the only way to overcome your issues with FOOD is to FACE THEM!

Don’t be Scared – I BELIEVE IN YOU!

YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!

WHAT FOOD ARE YOU GOING TO OVERCOME THIS CHRISTMAS???!!!!!!

Mine was my Grandma’s Famous Chocolate Sheet Cake.
