Tis the season to trim the tree, not yourself. But how do you keep off extra holiday pounds when plates of rich, creamy fudge, crumbly, buttery sugar cookies and savory, puff pastry hors d’oeuvres tempt you into trying one which sadly turns in to 5, 6, or 7?
You have worked hard all year to fit into those super hot skinny J Brand jeans, don’t ruin it just because it is the holidays. Remember everything in moderation, don’t deprive yourself but don’t over do it either.
I also heard two great tips on Good Morning America on how to avoid over eating at holiday parties. The first tip was to carry a clutch, you will have your clutch in one hand and a drink in the other, which leaves you no free hands to mindlessly grab hors d’oeuvres as they pass by. If you want to eat something you will have to set your clutch down and focus on what you are putting on your plate.
The other great idea is to wear something tight or fitted to the party so when you feel like you are over eating your outfit will be a subtle reminder that no you don’t actually need that fourth cookie. Keep these tips in mind and hopefully your New Year’s resolution can be something other than to lose weight, you might be able to finally tackle cleaning out your closet!
