Keri W. Posted November 1, 2012 Share Posted November 1, 2012 Well, here we are...the "fattest" months of the year, November & December. I really appreciate the blog regarding whether to begin a Whole30 or not, during the holidays. I've been continuously following the Whole9 way of living for a few months now. I'm not really keeping track of what Whole30 I'm on, because I just love how I feel and look when I'm sticking to the Whole9 principles. However, I decided that it would be smart of me to plan what I'm going to do during the next 2 months with Thanksgiving, weddings, and Christmas knocking on my door. Thanksgiving has never been much of an issue for me. I don't like pie, stuffing does nothing for me, and I don't like the feeling of being stuffed. I'm pretty sure that I will not have any temptation issues and I plan to eat paleo as always. The wedding will be an issue since I don't get to control how my food is made or what I'm served. Also, I love cake...BUT I know that if I eat the cake, I will feel awful physically and psychologically. I can't have this cake anyway, due to celiac disease. Christmas is going to be interesting though. I tend to end up with many boxes of chocolates that are given to me as gifts. These chocolates are excellent and definitely a huge temptation. I can't just stop at one piece. It will be difficult to not open up a box while in the car on my way home from a party. They are expensive...so I feel guilty just throwing them away. I also don't want to offend the person giving me the gift. So...I need to fight that sugar dragon fiercely. The problem is that I won't know when to prepare for that problem. The chocolates will appear all season long...students, friends, etc. enjoy giving them. I'm going to need to be on guard every day. Haha! Oh well. There are worse things to be concerned about. I'm just curious as to how you'd deal with this situation and what your plans are for the Whole9 way of living. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
