Four Easy Ways to Enjoy Yourself These Holidays

Now I'm sure that there are a million blog posts and articles on how to prevent packing on those holiday pounds out right now, but...but...well, here is another one.


1) Take part in as many outdoor activities as you can (even if it is -40)

  • Get on that sleigh ride with the one horse that is open
  • Play some pond hockey or get down to the corner rink for some skating. If you don't know how, it's time to learn!
  • Go tobogganing, running back up that hill is sure to burn something off!

2) Walk. If you can walk to your Christmas Day or New Years feast, do it! Saves a buck or two on a cab fare if you are a little worse for wear after too much egg nog at Grandma's.

3) Eat those veggies! Most holiday feasts usually have many plates of veggies that largely ignored in favour of the mashed potatoes and gravy. Load up on those and you'll be feeling much better at the end of the night!

4) Don't deprive yourself! When those holiday treats come out, eat them! If you try to hold back you'll just end up wanting them more and when the levee breaks, you'll eat the whole [gingerbread] house!

That's it. Enjoy the holidays!
