I was REALLY good in December. I didn't indulge in the usual holiday foods. I wasn't exercising as much as I should, but I was maintaining and was pretty happy about it. I made 5 dozen cut-out cookies, but did not have one of them. I made a mince pie, but did not have a slice. I made banana bread, and had one tiny piece. I was REALLY good.
Then Christmas day came and all of a sudden there were boxes of candy. Many Boxes And Bags Of CANDY which were given to me.
So it's back to the daily grind of exercise with my buddy Leslie Sansone and trying not to walk within a few feet of the jar of Quality Street.
Do you have a strategy NOT to pack on the pounds from holiday food? If so ... PLEASE SHARE!!!
