Happy Thanksgiving!

Its Thanksgiving and I really have so much to be thankful for(Family, God's love, friends...)
With the large amount of food that comes with the thanksgiving meal, its almost a given that we over eat. Something we are learning to do is practice the 80/20 rule, which means 80% of the time we eat healthy and 20 % of the time do what you want to do (within moderation) This is hard for our family because most of us consider ourselves "Food Divas" meaning, we love good food and lots of it. let thanksgiving be your 20%, enjoy the blessings of food,family, and friends and most importantly give God the thanks for all of it.

5 tips that may help throughout the day:

1. Drink lots of water throughout the day and a full glass before you eat
2. Take a walk before & after you eat (Don't forget the dog!) 
3. Play games, connect with loved ones maybe a game of  twister or the Wii
4. Limit snacking  
5. Eat more protein & veggies, less potatoes, bread, & sweets 

Have a great Thanksgiving!
