I agree with the commenter below. I engage in calorie budgeting ahead of time - stay on the low end of your range and get some extra calorie burn in the week ahead. Then eat what you want, and most importantly STOP when your full. There will be plenty of left overs so that second plate can wait for the next day. (Stop after the second day though, haha).

I signed my whole family up for a local Turkey trot also. It's a 5K run or 2M walk. Almost every town has one. Not to mention you can burn massive calories running around and tackling people on black friday. =)

Just listen to your body. Keep everything in perspective. Be reasonable.

just try to control yourself. when you get into a mental state of how you want it all and you need it all is when we tend to over do it and thats what bits use in the butt.

anything worth having is worth fighting for and drive is what takes you to the finish line.

I am not cooking dinner this year, going to a friend's house. I am going to take a vegetable dish and a fruit dish so that I'm sure there is something good for me to eat.

I plan on doing many of the same things previously written. Cook smarter, be mindful of the portions, load up on veggies and have a taste of dessert.

Substitute:
-applesauce for some of the oil in baked goods
-Egg Beaters for at least one egg where possible
-Splenda brown sugar mix in baked sweet potatoes
-lower sodium chicken stock
-whole wheat rolls instead of white rolls

Now, some things just cannot be substituted. We like what we like. In this instance, make it as you always do. Just eat less of it.

Happy cooking, successful eating and maintenance during the holidays!

I'm also hoping portion control will do the trick and working on working harder on weeks & days that aren't holidays or special at all. Like this week coming up there's nothing special happening so I am working on a tough work out schedule and trimmed meal plan.

For me "holiday" is a little more like "holi-week" because I go away to see family so it's more than just a day or a couple of hours of family fun and food. However, I just visited them last week and I did a great job of keeping my limits and portion control. That's key.

My thoughts are not written in stone yet. I was asked to bring dessert to Thanksgiving Dinner. I make a mean carrot cake, so I'm going to keep it mean - unless I whimp out and and go for a healthier version. Nothing worse than trying something new on familiar - they won't let you live it down! I have yet to find a healthier version that I like. As for the 'nana's pudding, I'm looking for a healthy alternative.

With regards to eating, I am going for a spoon full of this and a spoon full of that (unless its something I don't like).

Another option is to use the divided plates and load up on veggies in the larger section of the plate and the protein and carbs in the smaller section(s).

Fitness, I plan to keep to my workout routine.

just remind myself its a holiDAY
not a holiWEEK!

Eat more of the good stuff and less of the bad stuff. Baked turkey, cranberry sauce, salads minus the mayo are good. Have a scoop of mac and cheese, a small slice of pie and a scoop of mash. I only eat certain things on holidays now, but I must have a scoop of yams and marshmellows and no more.

I'm going to give myself permission to splurge on certain days - that way I won't be completely deprived. But there won't be a lot of those days. And even then I'll be choicy on what I splurge on.

I'm also going to up my exercise time, which will be challenging for me because I tend to exercise less when the time/seasons change. I'm challenging myself to 700 minutes for November and 800 minutes for December.

Before you ask God for Anything, remember to first thank him for Everything

I've decided to use portion control and extra gym time. But the biggest challange will be the desert table. I've been looking for new recipes that cut oil and sugar. I saw the article on substituting apple sauce in place of the oil and I'm going to try splenda for baking the make both brown and White sugar subs.
