December 18th, 2011 No Comments Tags: , , , , , , ,

Ok my cherished T & T followers. Let’s all sing along together from the same proverbial song-sheet now that the Christmas season is in full swing, shall we? HmHmmHmm.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me:

1 Good Night’s Sleep – Getting enough zzzzz’s helps with appetite regulation and allows you to be more productive by day. Nite nite.

2 Little Truffles – Enjoying some but not all of the season’s yummies with the festivities. All foods fit, but trade off now and then.

3 Milk Servings – Getting enough of the white stuff gives you that vitamin D you need during these darkest days of the year, plus calcium. Glug glug glug.

4 Food Groups – Eating a balanced diet now and all year through helps fill us up with the vitamins and minerals our bodies crave. Sorry folks, chocolate is still not a food group!!

5 Suares to Go To – Planning your noshing before you party-hearty will help you fit into your smashing outfit for New Year’s. Don’t forget to wear that waistband!

6 No-cal Drinks – Saving calories somewhere in your regimen during the season will help your jeans fit come January, like they did in November.

7 Blocks of Walkin’ – Getting and keeping moving those extra blocks will help burn off those extra calorie you’ve been nibbling.

8 Confidants – Keeping good friends close surely help ward off the temptation of the food saboteurs. “Have another??” “No thank you very much!!”

9 Time Outs – Finding quiet time from the go go go go helps ease the pressure that this time of year brings. Enjoy the moment, cause you’re not gonna get this season back ever again.

10 Fruits & Veg – Eating your 5-10 a day quota of these puppies everyday helps fill you up while easing those “extras” out because you’re simply feeling full. Like magic.

11 Whiners Whinin’ – This can be a stressful time of year for many, so try to focus on the positive and steer clear of the Debbie Downers. Fa la la la la, la la la la…..

12 Drummers Drummin’ – Marching to the beat of your own drum by being true to yourself is a perfect way to close out this year and start the next. Start as you mean to finish!!

Ok folks, if you follow this beat for the coming days you’ll be in good shape and feeling extra cheer by New Year and the whole year through!!
