The holidays are here and so are those pesky extra pounds that sneak up and grab hold, not wanting to let go. We try to limit our caloric intake and try in vein to avoid eggnogs, sweets, calorie dense meals but it’s impossible. And when you’re celebrating togetherness with friends and family and sharing meals – you should indulge!

Here’s a tip on how to avoid the holiday hoarding: get in a workout before breakfast. Hop on the rollers, hit up the gym, go for a walk. Anything to elevate your heart rate. Prime that engine baby so you start with a stoked metabolism.

Eat something before you connect with friends! Know you’ve got a crazy cheese concoction from your great aunt Connie you can’t say no to? If you show up with a half full belly – you won’t need to eat as much! It’ll make everybody happy.

Exercise with your family and friends! Start a new tradition by walking around the block, taking the dog for a walk and spending time outdoors before you dine.

Once January 1 comes around, you’ll have a head start on getting rid of any extra poundage.
