Merry Christmas 2015 and Happy Holidays- 5th year abstaining

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Safe Travels
Time with Family
Time with Friends.

Please know, if you choose to abstain from your trigger foods, you are not alone. This will be my 5th year. Each year gets less stressful and more relaxing.

Because I choose to make it that way. The things I can change, I continue to simplify.

Every meal, every bite, every day. Onward.

Whats' working
1. Abstaining from sugar, grains, preservatives. Being tough, NOT moderate.
2. Keeping the holiday's simple- decorations and gifts.
3. Keeping my regular routine with walking & gym.

What did not work in the past
1. Eating everything, every where- and lots of it.
2. Over decorating, stress over gifts.
3. Not walking and not working on strength at the gym

Take care and best wishes. Karen P.


  1. Merry Christmas! :D

  2. Thank you Karla and Deb, Merry Christmas to you both. Here's to safe travels- both on the road and with our food templates. Something about Christmas eve that really puts me on the edge, but I've got another year of keeping it together. Onward!

  3. Well I hope you had a Happy Christmas Karen ...
    Taking time to send all good wishes for the coming New Year

    All the best Jan
