This holiday season I'm keeping a food diary and counting my calories so I don't lose control.

This holiday season I will be running around Disneyland with my nieces - the ultimate workout!

Stephanie

I like to drink ... a lot ... during the holidays. Festive cocktails, fabulous wine, and fattening eggnog are my faves. So, I'm planning on alternating drinks with a giant glass of water so I can feel fuller!! Hope it works :)

Rachel

Wear tight fitting clothing during holiday meals - it makes it much harder to gorge yourself when your waistband is digging into your tummy!

Darcie

Count my carbs as I am diabetic, eat lots of fresh everything in its naked state and laughing cow cheese is just that plain good and naked!

ash

I am going to exercise daily and have mini meals, so I can eat what I love!

Tabathia B

I never eat everywhere I go, have a cut off time on when to stop eating and try to walk (even up and down the stairs) daily

My main issue is to make sure I DO eat small meals throughout the day and not starve in order to pig out on those amazing holiday foods. For me, I have health issues that limit physical activity AND LOW blood sugar issues, so I have to be REALLY smart about the way I use food and not make it a feeding frenzy just because "it's a holiday" and OK to go hog wild! (Oink Oink!) NOT THIS YEAR! I am getting older (just hit 50 this month) and have noticed the changes in metabolism as you age...it is a PAIN to manage your meals instead of letting eating govern you, but great health takes WORK and dedication!

thanks!

The best tip: avoid all those yummy dips at the holiday parties. The sour cream, mayo, and cream cheese really add up!

I keep walking during the holidays. I don’t do a lot of baking so there aren’t a lot of temptations in the house. When I visit other people’s homes I try to drink a lot of water and fill up on proteins, fruits and vegetables and limit my servings of snacks and sweets

Don't eat so fast, enjoy what your eating and drink lots of water with it.

To stay fit during the holidays, I walk. A lot. It also helps with sanity. Thankfully, my parents have a beagle, so any time my brothers bug me I always say "wow, looks like Belle could use a walk!" and then I go walk the dog.

Rinse, repeat, and be happy when I don't gain any weight over the holidays.

Oh, and wii also helps. We got my parents a wii last year, and I am so looking forward to playing again this year.

I LOVE WHAT YOU HAD TO SAY BUT I TAKE MEDICATION RIGHT NOW THAT MAKES ME GAIN WEIGHT LIKE CRAZY AND IT'S TOO HARD FOR ME TO AVOID HOLIDAY TEMPTATIONS kytah00@yahoo.com

I practice a “two-thirds/one-third” rule for my dinner plate. The entree, regardless of what it is, can take up 1/3 of the plate. The remaining 2/3rds of the plate is filled with vegetables and fruit. This is a simple no-weighing no-measuring food plan that works to keep me fit year-round.

Katie

I'm going to continue with my running, racing and resistance training that has helped me lose 5lbs since the summer ended :)

Kerry

I try to not deprive myself of anything, otherwise I will eventually cave and really overdue it!

Holidays are for having fun. Doesn't mean not getting exercise, but I'll probably over do and have to work a little harder later on.

Concentrate on the great friends instead of the great food at holiday parties!

Ali

During the holidays I always try to keep my portions small, that way I get to enjoy the things that I love, but in moderation. I also try to chew gum while I'm cooking, which keeps me from snacking on everything I'm making,

Katie

Chase after my ever mobile toddler, trudge through the snow to get groceries, etc., and remind myself that I don't have to eat it all.at.once. (But give myself some wiggle room for the yummy holiday treats - it's all about balance, right??)

Gwen

I try to drink extra water throughout the day, and since it's dark so early, play Wii Fit or Wii Sports at night to make up for the lost hours that I'd otherwise try to spend outside.

Dawn P.

Two words. . . size up. Then you don't have to worry about it. You'll have to grow into your party dress instead of dieting at the holidays. Isn't that what New Years resolutions are for?

But seriously. . . my tip is to actually place your exercise bike or treadmill at home in front of a tv hooked up to a DVR. I record all of my favorite shows on that DVR and the only way I can watch my shows is to exercise. It's amazing how it changes a typical 30 minute workout to a 90 minute workout just so I can watch two one hour shows (turns out to be about 45 minutes a piece when you fast-forward throgh the commercials)!

One way to help is to eat six times a day. Small portions, more frequently.

It takes the edge off, so that I'm never so hungry I cave to the temptations.

Jonathan

My wife and I stay inside and play wii fit and occasionally do the 30 minute shred!

Lisa Foster

I have started taking my gym clothes to work and changing before I leave for the gym--it helps motivate me to go directly to my workout instead of stopping at home where I can be easily distracted and blow off my exercise.

My strategy for handling the holidays works pretty well for me. I know the days that there will be parties and family get togethers. I allow myself to indulge on those days, but on the remaining days, I am very strict with my intake....steering completely clear of sugar and most carbs.

PauleyD

My strategy is to stay healthy all year round and indulge around the holiday season. I like to work out and I tend to eat clean year round, so when the holidays roll around I don't feel bad about eating goodies.

I use the wii to dance with and stay fit and I'm not a big sweets eater so that's not really a problem. I just eat small portions of things I like so it works out pretty well.

Use an exercise that you love which will make it easier to stick with.

Elizabeth

My plan is to keep up with my new running routine no matter what!

Elyse

Make sure to pack tennis shoes and workout clothes. If I'm dedicating precious space in my suitcase to those items, I WILL make use of them. Plus then I have no excuse for skipping a run. Or at least going to an intense walk.

Megan

Food diary, gym visits built into my schedule, and weekly weigh ins.

Hope

I make sure that I only have one decadent holiday drink a season. And then I sip it slowly so I can really enjoy it.

Then I up my gym time.

And cross my fingers.

sherin

walk, walk, and walk everywhere.

Meaghen

My tip is deciding what is worth splurging on and skipping the rest. I only want to have extras of those treats that I only get to have at the holiday season like Christmas Morning Wife Saver (so sexist, but very delicious) and Christmas cookies.

Monica B

Workout and make it a group effort! If you can get your chicas and familia involved it makes staying healthier during the holidays much more manageable. For Thanksgiving me and my dad and sister all did a 5K! Now I just need to find a little run for us all to do this month :)

janet

I like Jean's tip above.

Mine is to have every other drink be alcoholic, and the in between ones are plain fizzy/soda water.

Stefani M.

Realizing that my children are watching me and that I need to make a healthy example for them (and be healthy myself so that I can be a better mom for them).

Jberthiaume.wordpress.com

I mostly just give up around the holidays and worry about it later. It's all just too much for me to handle.

elsimom

I love this idea - it's its own built in reward!
