Surviving the Holidays
It's all about a plan
Make Your Plan continued...
This year, start a tradition on the morning of each holiday. Get the whole
clan up early for a bike ride or walk in the woods before you sit down to that
scrumptious meal and day of football games. And remember, social gatherings
during the holidays are a time to embrace and give thanks for our family and
friends. Spend less time focused on food and more time enjoying the camaraderie
of your loved ones.
And if you decide to totally disregard your eating plan, well, that's fine
for a special occasion! Just brush yourself off the next morning and get right
back into your exercise and healthy eating routine.
Remember: Holiday time does not need to be synonymous with weight gain. Make
this your year not to gain those few extra pounds that you adamantly
proclaim to lose on New Year's Day.
