You know it’s Easter when you can’t go to the shops for a loaf of bread without being confronted with wall after wall of shiny, chocolate bunnies.
They stare at you… beckoning. How can you leave their cute little faces in the store? OF COURSE you MUST bring them home with you! It’s the humane thing to do, isn’t it?
Yes, it’s Easter time and try as you might, the smell of Hot Cross Buns have already started calling your name. But never fear! I have the quintessential Party Survival Guide already prepared for you AND NOW… your must have 3 Essential Easter Survival Tips!
Ready? Set?… Read Below!
1. Don’t Binge
Yes, yes, I know it looks like Easter is your “access all areas” ticket to chocolate heaven, but remember… when the choc-fest is over and all you’re left with is a kitchen full of empty foil wrappers and a belly the size of a sumo wrestler, you WILL regret the choices you made over the weekend.
Take it slow. Put some chocolate eggs aside for later, give them away or donate them to the less fortunate. Just DON’T think you need to eat the world’s supply of chocolate so you can make a “fresh start” on Tuesday.
2. Don’t buy more than you need
Easter eggs and hot cross buns will get discounted a day or so before the big event. DON’T GET SUCKED IN! You don’t need them, it’s not a bargain and you’re not saving money.
Walk on by, baby. Leave them on the shelf. Let some other sucker fall victim to the marketing ploy. Buying more chocolate “for later” will not help your emotional eating situation one bit. What it will do is set you up for binge scenario A) you + the TV on Easter Monday night = total choc-fest and belly ache
3. Move on
Alright, so you at a liiiiitle too much. The buns were just too delicious and the Easter Bunny dumped his entire delivery of eggs at your place. I get it. I’ve been there more times than I care to remember. So now what? Move on, baby! it’s over. It’s done. No point crying over melted chocolate. The thing to do now is to recommit to yourself and revisit WHY you want to ditch your emotional eating. Is it because you’re tired of lugging around those extra kilos? Or are you ready to launch into a life where YOU call the shots (not the fresh baked cheesecake)
Whatever it may be, find your “why” and write.it.down.
Stick it on your fridge, your bathroom mirror, heck… stick it on your TV, just put it somewhere where you will see it and be moved to act on it.
I know, as a HUUUGE emotional eater myself, Easter can be a bitter and (oh, so) sweet time of year. But if you stick with the plan and use your FREE Party Survival Guide along with these three tips, you’re sure to glide through the weekend on a cloud of calm control, rather than chomp your way through enough chocolate bunnies to put a small chocolate factory out of business!
