Use a smaller
plate. Make just
one trip to the food
table, and fill only a
salad-sized plate with
your favorites. This helps
keeps portions under
control.

DEC 24

Downsize. You
don't have to
stay to the end of every
party or attend every
gathering. Look at your
list of events and
obligations and see
where you can cut back
on time, energy, and
money.

DEC 25

Make healthy
substitutions.
Try applesauce in place
of oil, two egg whites
instead of one egg, and
skim milk in place of
regular milk when
baking. Look for ways to
cut sugar and use whole
grains too.

Just say no. Just
because
everyone is eating does
not mean that you have
to. Choosing smaller
portions shouldn’t
offend a host, but
sometimes it may be
necessary to decline.

Stay positive.
Everyone makes
mistakes, so
there will be times
when even the most
disciplined person
overeats or skips a
workout. Don’t
worry—just get back on
track. Staying positive is
half the battle.

Bring a healthy
dish. When
attending a
party, cook a healthy,
low-cal dish to share. This
way, you'll have at least
one healthy option when
you're there.

Sweat more.
Some research
shows that adding just
10 more minutes of
intense exercise to your
usual workout can stave
off holiday weight gain.

Shop when full.
Shopping on an
empty stomach can
lead to overeating on
the unhealthy food
court fare. Also stash
some emergency
healthy snacks in your
car or purse. Try nuts,
whole grain crackers,
and dried fruit.

Wash your
hands. The
holiday season
coincides with cold and
flu season. Keep germs
at bay by washing your
hands well after
shopping, visiting and
more. No one wants
sickness to interfere
with their fun!

Enjoy a preparty
snack. If
you arrive famished,
you're more likely to
devour too much of the
wrong things. Try a
combination of fiber,
protein and healthy fats
for more filling power

Walk more. Keep
a brisk walking
pace while you do your
holiday shopping.
Instead of wasting time
looking for a closer
parking spot, take a faraway
one to increase
your activity (and save
time).

Think before you bite.
Before you try every
irresistible food that
crosses you path, think first.
How will you feel after you
eat them? Is the taste really
worth it? Could you enjoy
just a small amount instead?

Stay organized.
Keep a running list
of errands,
groceries, and gifts, and
make a plan to finish as
many things in as few
trips as possible. You'll
save time, gas and your
own sanity!

Budget wisely.
Watch your food
intake during the day if
you're going to a party
that night. Make
healthy, filling choices
beforehand, budgeting
a few more calories to
account for the party
fare.

Simplify gifts.
Your loved ones
probably feel just as
overwhelmed about
gifts as you do.
Instead of buying for
everyone, draw
names from a hat or
give to a charity in
Gathering with close someone’s honor.

Dec 3 Splurge wisely.

I love the different cookies. I'll wisely choose a few. Our neighbor gives a small plate of homemade every year to all of the 9 neighbors.
Have a great Friday.

December 2:
Stay active. Don’t
mistake being
"busy" for being
"active." You still need to
exercise at least 30
minutes each day. Break
it up into a few smaller
sessions throughout the
day if you're pressed for time.
35mins upper with & 24 squats. walking this afternoon. Peace today, Debbie emoticon
