Merry Christmas....and a Healthy New Year!

If you're like me, I'm sure food has been a central part of family traditions on Christmas. I know that some of your best memories of Christmas revolve around one of your mom's pans of homemade cinnamon rolls (or maybe your mom didn't make cinnamon rolls as delicious as my mom..... Or you're looking forward to tasting the ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes....and then finishing off with a piece of pie. But what do you do when your Aunt says "here, you need to eat a piece of this's oooooohhh so good!" What do you do to politely tell her no? Here are some ideas for politely saying no. But if you aren't able to say no, you can work off some of those calories here to avoid being the typical middle aged person who gains 1.5 pounds of fat this year...

And you may wonder what my plan is. I'll eat the foods I normally don't eat. I'll eat a bit more than I normally do. But I'll be eating less than I did a year ago and I'll be exercising more than I did a year ago. I'll be starting 2018 weighing less than when I started 2017 and for me that's a win.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
