Holiday Festivities - Decisions, Decisions

Well, we're smack in the middle of the holiday season, and the festivities have certainly begun! I've always loved this time of year. It's a chance to get together with family and friends, and (of course) share some tasty treats!

This year I'm trying to balance my desire to indulge with the realization I'll just have to work that much harder to continue keeping my health and fitness goals in line come the New Year.

Do you have any tips that might help me stay focused?

A good tip is to go out for a daily walk. As long as I include some exercise into my day I find I can keep some balance during the holidays. I still have some of the baking and treats but, I don't tend to gain weight!

Re hydrate during the staff party or other parties you go to, throw in a glass of water when you are socializing; if you know what I mean if not basically beer water beer or wine water wine.

Thank you both for your great suggestions! I hope you have a wonderful (and healthy!) holiday season.
