"It's the most wonderful time of the year..." At least that's what the song says. But it is also one of the most stressful. Traffic and stores are crazy. Schedules are packed and budgets are tapped. Now, add to that your usual goal of healthy eating and exercise. It's common to throw in the towel in December and just say you'll start fresh in the New Year. Instead, we want to encourage you to finish 2012 strong! The holidays are a time for celebration and family, not to put on weight. It's almost as if we've come to accept that we are going to put on 10 pounds during each holiday season. Celebration doesn't have to mean gluttonous eating or deprivation for that matter. It's time to bring the focus back to the purpose of the holiday. Enjoy your friends and family, the time off and the traditions of the holidays.
