The holiday crunch (and munch) is on.
I'm a weakly willed woman...I get over temptation by simply not having tempting food in my house. But now, everywhere I go there are chocolates, and so many nibbly Christmas parties. What's a woman to do?
I'm embarrased to say my workout regimen has collapsed. With working all day and then all night, I have little energy for workouts, but I keep trying to remind myself, that exercise is critical. I'm being a suck because I can't run...
Tomorrow morning will be my first workout in a few weeks. I've been doing lots of walking and hiking outside so it hasn't been a total write off, but no hard core sweat a lot feel good workouts.
So I must kick myself in the ass and get back to it.
I'm also trying to work out a snack policy for the holidays. I have no problem resisting sweet stuff (never been a candy or chocolate freak) but anything salty or hordervey gets me every time. I think I'll limit myself to 1 of whatever I see and go from there. The hardest part is the eggnog. I could drink nog with rum all day if you let me...and the light stuff doesn't taste as good...so I"m learning the tiny prtions trick. I don't want to deny myself things, but the tricks of filling up with lemony diet pop and low cal veggies can't replace a few choice nibbleys!
How do you all deal with the holiday munchies?
And, do you have any tasty low cal munchies to share?
Here's my favorite:
1 block low fat cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup low fat mayo
1/2 red pepper diced up small
4 shallots diced up small.
1/2 t dill
1/2 t pepper
1/2 t garlic
Mix it all up together and spread onto 5 spinach or tomato torilla shells...roll up and wrap with saran and chill. Right before serving, cut up into little discs and serve...yummy!
