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.
