So I was going to write a nice post on how to eat right during Thanksgiving: how to load up on veggies, stay hydrated, etc. All very good things, true, but today it seems so far away.

What do I mean? Well, it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet and I have overdone it today! I was doing some experimenting with recipes for my food blog (The Fit Cookie) and I ended up eating way too much of my treats. Then comes the self-loathing: I should know better, why do I do this to myself, and so on. Does that sound familiar?

It is so easy to be hard on myself, especially since I am a perfectionist and something of a Type A personality. I normally would throw in the towel today and give up on eating good for the rest of the evening, but I am determined to make things right by redeeming this day.

But who redeems this day?I believe God redeems my day I just need to embrace His grace and move forward on the path that is laid before me toward a higher calling. I have a purpose, and I need to remember that my life is more than what I eat or how I feel about myself. Sure, we have to take care of ourselves the best we can, but I am limited in what I can do, but that is where God’s grace steps in and saves the day : )

This Thanksgiving, don’t forget to include some grace with your meal! If you find yourself overdoing it (hey, this is real life, it happens!), give yourself a break and pick up where you left off as soon as you can.

Don’t forget: being healthy is a lifelong journey, not a short-term race! Build habits that last forever
