Holiday Fit Tip: Walk Off the Binge

The holidays are all about large extravagant meals full of tasty traditional foods that most of us are taking the opportunity to indulge in and enjoy.

If you do eat a large meal high in fat, the best thing to do for yourself and your arteries is to go for a 45-minute walk. Even if you've put counting calories on the back burner during the holidays, you should still try to keep your health in mind. So invite your friends and family to join you — not only will you be doing something good for your health, but it's also a great way to catch up while getting some fresh air.

My mother and I are going for a walk in about thirty minutes. It's cold out but we have both had our fair share of cookies!

Yeah, cold weather, that can be a problem. Seasons change, our appetites and cravings change. Hence our bodies (hopefully!) change :-)
