I know you know this.

You know you know this.

Fail to plan, plan to fail.

You can’t just HOPE you’re going to behave yourself at holiday parties. You can’t just do the same old things you’ve been doing. You can’t just miss breakfast. have a light lunch and then go to a party filled with temptation and not go a little insane on the cheese platter ;-)

You have to plan your meals.

You have to plan your workouts.

You have to set your goals in stone.

You don’t want to be the person that comes out of the holidays 5 to 10 pounds heavier, do you?

If you don’t plan your strategy from preventing it, well, you can PLAN on getting some new clothes that fit your new size.

This is far from doom and gloom. You can still enjoy your favorite foods at parties. You can still have a great time.

But what you can’t do is just free-for-all it and stuff your face with everything put in front of you. You know that.

Tell you what: Plan on taking a nice 30 minute walk this week and do some solid thinking about what your plan will be. And when you get back home, put it on paper and commit to it.

And think about how great you’ll feel about yourself when January comes after you’ve followed your plan. Oh, and be sure to reward yourself to by doing something special for yourself.

P.S. Here is a thought… Start NEW Traditions. I know most of us after the holiday meal will sit around and watch the big game on Thanksgiving, or maybe we sit down and watch the TV Marathon of ‘A Christmas Story’ that the network is airing. Why not create a new tradition of walking around the neighborhood to decide which neighbor has the best Christmas lights, or instead of watching the big game, why not play your own game outside. Incorporate being active in a fun activity, and you wont even realize your burning some of those holiday calories.
