‘Tis the season to eat cookies, fa la la la la la la la

Don we now our fat apparel fa la la fa la la la la la

NO!!!!  The holidays are not an excuse to eat whatever we want then make those useless New Year’s resolutions about losing weight.  The best thing to do is to make changes before the holidays begin- think waaaay back to Halloween when you scarf down the candy your kids don’t like.   Do you really want to know how long you’ll have to run, do cardio or even walk to work off that bite-size Snickers bar?

Then we’re hit with Thanksgiving- turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, apple pie, calories, fat, clogged arteries.

A month later we get another round but this time we add cookies, cakes, egg nog, candy canes, chocolate Santas and more! 

A week later it’s time to make empty promises we know we’ll break but write down anyway.  Put down that candy, choose white meat instead of dark, skip the rolls, use a smaller plate and if you HAVE to eat dessert make it a small slice…then go for a walk with your significant other or even the whole family!
