# 1 - We no longer do a traditional Christmas day dinner; not since I developed an aversion to turkey. We now do fried oysters, taters, and tarter sauce. My Mom does the best fried oysters. Not much to modify, but I do use light mayo (Miracle Whip actually) for the tarter sauce, which is my specialty.

Also, I will modify my baking to use whole wheat pastry flour and sometimes some butter substitutions depending on the recipe. Also, always skim milk in any recipe.

# 2 - I'm hoping! I found with November that taking the pedometer with me and tracking the out of the ordinary walking, well, I really do get quite a bit in during the day.

Hi everyone. This month's challenge has 3 parts.

1 - Modify one Christmas dinner recipe to be healthier.

2 - at least 500 minutes of exercise this month. With the holidays coming, it's important to remember our exercise goals (without obsessing). I believe exercise makes us feel better in addition to the other benefits, so try and keep to your goals, but modify when necessary. I also think we should *enjoy* the holidays.

3 - Oddly enough it's usually Christmas, the end of the year, when I evaluate where I'm at, not just professionally, but emotionally. Given that we're all here to lose weight,I think sometimes we lose site of some of the other stuff. So, as the year winds down, think about how far you've come on your particular journey, be it the weight loss, getting out of a horrible job or other situation, etc. and consider writing a blog posting.
