The other thing you can do is to take what you would normally, then put half off onto another plate for the later meal. I call it Halving.

Eating slow is a great move.

When I have control over the food I substitute low fat gravy for high fat.

If I don't I may just skip the gravy.

There is no substitute for fruit cake. If I'm offered some this year, I'll accept at least once.

Since I have a lot of time off at the holidays, I plan to get more cardio in. That should make up for a few indulgences.

I thought was going to have a handle on Thanksgiving eating this year, but too many family members.

Have three places this year to go for Thanksgiving dinner. One this Saturday, one Sunday and turkey day.

Oh well, I guess I will just eat slow and it look like I am eating a lot.

I have Christmas with my parents and it can be tough, but I can take some money so that if they have cookies and stuff, I can have fruit and yogurt.

emoticon Eat well, and keep moving!!!

With balance and moderation, you can enjoy the holidays the healthy way. Choose fresh fruit as a festive and sweet substitute for candy. Select just one or two of your favorites from the host of tempting foods. Find fun ways to stay active, such as dancing to your favorite holiday music.

The challenge:

List your "substitutes" for the Holiday temptations, post your "WINS" over holiday temptations and post your daily "moves" i.e. exercise during the holiday countdown.

Substitutes:

1.) I will substitute fruit for other sweets.
2.) I will eat healthy before attending a holiday party to take the edge off trying the temptations that are offered.
3.) Every time I hear a "Holiday Tune" I will move a little faster and "Dance" my way to health!!!

I look forward to seeing how you will eat healthy and which "dance" you chose to stay on track during the holidays!!!
