Avoid Holiday Weight Gain! :-)

Turkey, stockings, that jolly guy in the red suit–!!! these things are supposed to be stuffed during the holidays.
You? Not so much.

It may seem impossible to make it to the New Year without gobbling up every last delectable goodie. Well, read on for an early holiday gift: a guide to enjoying your favorite treats through the season so you don’t come out the other side of January 1 with extra padding.

Stay Slim this Holiday Season!

1-Eat before you cook.

2-If you have to sample something, put it on a plate first,,,, Eating right out of the pot or pan makes it easy to lose track of how much you’re consuming.

3-Keep healthy snacks on hand.

4-Be aware of little bites. They may look harmless, but mini appetizers often contain about 100 calories and can easily add up without filling you up.

Yikes! If you did over do it:

Ice it. Pick up some small plastic containers when you’re food shopping so you can freeze leftovers in reasonable portions
Move them out of sight—stat. Wrap and put leftovers away as soon as the partygoers leave so you aren’t tempted to nibble as you clean up in the kitchen.

TAKE A 30-MINUTE WALK. Do this first thing in the morning to help jumpstart your metabolism and put you in a healthy-eating mindset for the rest of the day.

Orrr…Just hang out here and inhale all these goodies..lol

Sweet Friends..Wishing you all the
Hope, Wonder, and Joy
that the Season can bring!

    Well, chocolate does come from a bean so I am going to consider it a healthy snack and turn a blind eye to everything else in it!!!!!!!

    Merry Christmas, one and all !!!!!!!!!!!

    Since when does it make sense to write a letter to a mythical figure to complain abour so-called ‘myths’?

    Because ‘secular’ myth’s have greater ‘truth’behind them? I don’t think so…
