Savor the season!

My sister & her family are in town from NC and my brother is in town from Florida. On Thanksgiving Day we will all be together with our parents, my Aunt & Uncle from Illinois and more relatives from PA! It's the feeling of everyone coming together in the house I grew up in that makes the holidays so exciting for me.

This time of year is a time I savor!! The excitement, the planning! I love it!! Everyday from now till New Year's Day, I love! 

This week is full of little activities with my brother and sister who are already in town. Tonight we had our family's  favorite crab cakes & homemade Mac & Cheese for dinner. I partaked! My method of attack was this: I stuck to my lean proteins, complex carbs and veggies all day.  My Shakeology shake really set the tone this morning to keep my cravings in check and my appetite in-line. I exercised hard this morning and so I was more than 100% comfortable (no guilt!) with indulging a bit tonight!  

My point? Eating clean is far from depriving yourself of foods. I eat a lot (every 3 hours that I am awake) and crave what I eat. At times like these where I want to have something out of the ordinary, I have it.  

When I eat clean & exercise consistently - I don't have to worry about falling off track. 

Cheers to a consistent & healthy lifestyles!
