If you fall off the wagon, just get back on. Don't stress. All is not lost. Don't wait until Monday to climb back on the wagon. Don't even wait until dinner to climb on the wagon. Climb back on right now and grab yourself a big glass of water. It's ok, we aren't perfect.
And guess what, if you end up skipping that wagon ride for dinner, then breakfast the next morning, then lunch and dinner the next day, well wagon rides depart all day every day, and you determine the wagon's schedule.
This may sound like a silly analogy, but it's true. If you screw up, just fix it. You know how to control your eating habits.
Last week I fell off the wagon. I don't want to say I cheated or broke my diet, that sounds too harsh. I intentionally jumped off the wagon, actually, because it was my dang birthday weekend and I didn't want to eat a cauliflower birthday cake. I just kept telling myself, no worries, do what you want right now, but Wednesday morning, you get right back on track, don't let anything stop you! And I didn't. On Wednesday I had my iced coffee with non fat milk and my little breakfast bar and I was right back to being focused on healthy eating.
I think that is something you need to remember during the holiday season. Treat yourself, but don't sabotage yourself. The longer you stay away, the farther away the wagon travels and the more difficult is to chase down that damn wagon.
Those who wander are not always lost.
