And no, I'm not going to skip it this week. Yes, many of you probably overate yesterday. After all, who can resist turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie and oh so much more? I just hope you practiced a bit of portion control.
However, today's a new day. Don't give up trying to make healthy choices just because the holidays are here. That makes it so much harder for the New Year.

All you have to do to be entered is to leave a comment below. I will keep the comments open until Monday morning (early). I'll then figure out the random picker thing or else write numbers and pull them out of a bowl. Anyway, it will be a random thing. Just be sure to provide me with a way to notify you in case you win. If you have a blog and an email there, I will find you but if not give me a clue, OK?
I may even include another surprise in the package! You never know what you'll find. I love surprises!
Why not share something about your Thanksgiving this year? Did you decrease your serving sizes? Or did you go all out and figure you'll exercise more today?
I think we could all use a dose of reality and exhibit some self-control, especially at this time of year. So let's encourage one another.
Ask God to help you make healthier choices. After all, as we spend time in prayer and reading His Word, the fruit of the Spirit becomes more evident in us. And don't forget that self-control is on the list of the fruit of the Spirit.
