Three years ago, right after the end of daylight saving time and the beginning of the rainy season I stopped working out. I also stopped minding my portion size — not a good combination. Not only did I gain a few pounds, I lost my hard earned fitness level. Subsequently fighting off the pounds and regaining my strength taught me a valuable lesson: healthy living shouldn't just be a sometimes thing. Am I worried about gaining weight this holiday season? Yes. But I am going to let my fear fire up my workout schedule and my willpower.
