I made it through the first of several eating holidays. At this point I pretty much have the gluten free plate figured out at Thanksgiving and splurge on the gluten rich pie. Since I don’t over indulge in the dinner festivities and I don’t participate in any of the wine or alcohol festivities I can splurge where I really want to which is the delicious plate featuring small slivers of several different pie flavors. Smothered in whipped cream which is gluten free so the more the merrier.
My Thanksgiving day included a 60 min spin, 90 min Vinyassa yoga and 90 Bikram class all before noon when it was time to re-fuel my body with moisture white turkey meat, mashed cauliflower, a beautiful assortment of roasted root vegetables and small taste of the ever so sweet potato mash. My husband stays home doing the cooking while I’m out burning those calories making room to replenish them. It works out well and has been a tradition now for 12 years since we have been married.
The next Holiday is our Christmas season which isn’t just 1 or 2 days like the calendar states but instead 5 weeks of fun filled eating, drinking, fire side chats, family gatherings and company holiday parties. Again I have this pretty well figured out and I do not commit to every single occasion that is offered between now and Jan 3rd. I have my limits of what my body is capable of. I try and do all the right things most of the time so I can enjoy some later than normal evenings with holiday cheer and chats.
I have been doing a lot of yoga teaching which is truly so fulfilling. I knew I loved yoga and knew I wanted to teach but I didn’t know exactly how much my soul would be filled by teaching. I’m taking care of myself while taking care of others during our yoga classes and taking time when I need to rest and recoup. Which means that my activity level is still pretty low outside yoga but that is ok for now and I don’t want to over do it.
