The Holiday Season is such a busy time of the year; with time spent planning and attending parties, gift buying, house cleaning, baking, wrapping, sending cards, traveling, visiting, and on and on.
It’s very easy to put your healthy eating and exercise program on the back shelf thinking….”I’ll pick it back up after the holidays” or “I’ll start my diet and exercise program for New Years.”
I’d like to suggest something that is a little “different.” Use a “bee” to remind you of your commitment to The Metabolism Miracle program.
The “bee in the picture” belongs to me! He is a representative of “The Metabolism Miracle” program.
During the holidays, many families have fun with the holiday game “Elf on the Shelf”. They purchase the family elf, give it a name, and when the children go to sleep, the elf finds itself in a different spot. You can Google “elf on the shelf” to see how creative some people can be when hiding the elf.
The purpose of the elf is for the children to find the elf in the morning. They can’t touch or move the elf….it remains in position all day….”watching” the behavior of the household’s children. He/she is hidden from December 1-December 24. On Christmas Eve he/she returns to the North Pole to report to Santa the overall behavior of the house’s children. The elf helps remind children to be on their best behavior the month before Christmas.
Last year, my husband and I got our own elf and named him Joey. We took turns hiding him and had a great time.
Now what’s with the “Bee on the Shelf?” I propose that those living The Metabolism Miracle put a “bee” in a prominent place in their home to remind them of their commitment to their lifestyle program. Move your bee from place to place….refrigerator, on top of the microwave, in your sneakers to remind you to exercise, in the room you watch TV, at work on your desk, by the mirror where you get dressed, etc. Choose a place where you have the greatest tendency to mindlessly eat, snack, or binge or near the things you need to exercise or where you check yourself out.
Why am I suggesting a “Bee?”. Well, in The Metabolism Miracle books, I refer to over-production of the fat gain hormone, insulin, as Metabolism “B” or Met “B”. Members of The Metabolism Miracle support site: http://www.Miracle-Ville.com have lovingly named Met B’s “BEES”and the BEE is our symbol. If you are interested in learning more about Metabolism B and to see if you might be a “B”….see the checklist on http://www.themetabolismmiracle.com.
