Ditch The Christmas Cookies?

This is my current dilemma: Do I make Christmas Cookies this year?  I love baking Christmas cookies.  I enjoy making them; I enjoy sharing them; I enjoy eating them.  But things have changed this year.

I stopped eating gluten so I won’t even be able to eat one or lick the batter.  Both sets of my parents are working to lose and keep weight off.  Brining cookies to them would be a temptation when they are surrounded with temptation.  And, no one really needs them.

That being said, I bring them around to some of our towns who help us plan our classes all year and some of the custodial staff who help keep the building clean for us all year.  So I’d lose that as a way to show my gratitude.  I also have fun making them and look forward to it.  Though it might be less fun now that wheat and I are at odds.

To A Healthier Christmas

Here are a few tips to help you have a healthier Christmas holiday.

1) Make time for your regular workouts. If your regular workouts aren’t available (like some of our classes that aren’t running) use that time to go for a walk.

2) Want to call an old friend? Get on the cell and walk while you talk

3) Stay hydrated

4) Throw away Christmas cookies by December 28th—kick start the New Year early

5) Make at least five minutes a day just for yourself. Sit down and stare at the tree for a moment, or get into bed a little earlier to read, or linger in a warm shower

6) Eat whatever you want, but try not to overeat
