Simple Tip: Step away from Temptation

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the day with their loved ones, even if you don't celebrate the holiday. Tiny Tummy is home with the 'rents for our annual trip to the movies (yes, we literally go to the movies once a year-- we're much more of the rent-a-movie-and-watch-in-bed type)

One of my favorite parts about going home to my parent's house is peeking into their fridge and cabinets and seeing what goodies they have, but one of the hardest parts about sticking to a healthy lifestyle is not giving into all of the temptation. A simple tip that I try to follow is step away from temptation. What I mean is, don't stand in front of the fridge or pantry sticking your hand in bag after container after box, etc. Instead, if you want to indulge, portion yourself out what you want to eat, and take it away from the fridge and pantry. Along the same lines, never take the whole bag/box/container with you (unless of course its a single serving). If you only take what you plan on eating, it makes it impossible to overdo it. And, once you have what you need, STEP AWAY! Don't linger around the fridge or pantry. Take your food with you somewhere you can sit and relax and really enjoy it!

If you follow these tips, it should hopefully prevent this:
