Most people tend to put on a few pounds over the holidays. That's not so bad, is it?  So what if your blouse gapes a bit at the fourth button; and what if you're nominated to play jolly old Saint Nic this year?  And what about that cute little dress you bought months ago for New Year's?  And we haven't even talked about the health factors!
So how do you avoid holiday weight gain?  Well, let me offer a few time-proven, doctor approved techniques.  Incorporate some extra work-out activities in your daily activities like:

·        Parking as far from the mall entrance as possible will help you burn calories as you
   walk those extra steps. 
·        Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
·        Do aerobic housecleaning – put on an upbeat tape and vacuum to the beat.
·        Keep moving and concentrate on working your arms and legs.
And, what about all those heavy holiday munchies at every party you attend?  Here are a few techniques to implement at the next one:

·              *  Eat a healthful snack just before you go to the party so you won't be starving when
            you get there.
·              *  Drink water – sparkling or still – with a twist of lemon.  It has fewer calories than
             holiday drinks and helps your body process calories more efficiently.

·              *  Remember that you tend to eat more if you sit or stand near the food table.  Find a
             less tempting place to stand.

Avoid all temptation during the holidays by:

·               *  If you keep candy on hand for visitors, buy varieties you don't like. 
·               *  Don't shop for holiday groceries when you're hungry.
·     This time of year stores have tempting food displays and samples to try to get you to purchase more…be strong and say, "No thank you!"

·     Don't meet friends in coffee, donut, pie, and muffin shops after a night of shopping.  Instead go for a walk or meet in one of your homes to view each others bargains and to chat.

This holiday season take time to make healthier plans so you can beat holiday weight gain.  And, check in next week for more steps you can take to have a healthier holiday!
